What Ke$ha was smoking at the MTV Movie Awards

We couldn't tell what Ke$ha and Snoop Lion were puffing on as they presented one of the performances at this month's MTV Movie Awards, but we wouldn't have guessed that it was a sparkly substance.

But according to Ke$ha, it was.

"It was glitter," the pop and now reality TV star told The Hollywood Reporter (while giggling, it should probably be noted). "We were just smoking my glitter."

With that all cleared up, Ke$ha was ready to talk about her new MTV docu-series, "My Crazy Beautiful Life," which premiered on Tuesday.

"There was definitely no script. There was nothing contrived. It’s all real," Ke$ha promised of the doc's two-year dip into her life via behind-the-scenes footage filmed by her brother. "It’s all raw. And it’s all really honest because that’s kind of what I stand for anyways."

THR wasn't that impressed, saying in a review that "even in moments that should feel relatable, it's hard to take her seriously because of how seriously she seems to take herself," equating "My Crazy Beautiful Life" to "a standard tour documentary of a band you used to like."

Yet The Atlantic found the doc's transparency redeeming, adding that Beyoncé, who had her own documentary air on HBO in February, should take a few notes from the eccentric pop star.

"'My Crazy Beautiful Life' unflinchingly explores a universal phenomenon [Beyoncé's] 'Life Is but a Dream' didn't dare touch: failure," The Atlantic notes. "[S]o far, it's a braver, more believable documentary for it."

Entertainment Weekly agrees, saying in its review that Ke$ha, for the most part, is just being herself, and "that come-as-you-are nature helps make her bearable (and, yes, at times fun) to watch on and off the clock."

Did you catch "My Crazy Beautiful Life"? If so, what'd you think? And what do you think Ke$ha's "glitter" is made of?

    People were making fun of how Ke$ha was dressed at the MTV awards show, but I thought she looked good.

    Snoop is a wonderful role model for the african american community. Starting with an average of eighty five or so IQ points, smoke dope and kill more brain cells. You'll be really employable then. Plus, his industrious work ethic is an inspiration to us all.

      Ke$ha is a great role model for white people. High school dropout, grew up in a trailer park, can't dance, no sense of style.

      According to this very site, his "industrious work ethic" has amassed him a fortune of over $100 million. I wouldn't question how hard he works, he didn't get there by selling dope on the street corner, and he's been in the game nigh on 30 years now. Haters gonna hate . . .

    If, I wish it was that simple. But standard contracts prevent singers from having any control over single releases. Some labels give their more powerful artists that right. But most singers have to do what they're told. Kesha fought to get The Harold Song released and even tried to get a fan movement going. It up to fans now to continue to pressure rca until they stop with the party girl crap. She can't do it on her own.

    All these paid endorsements (below) for Ke$ha. Save it for the CD liner notes, people.

      I wish I was getting paid. So, in your mind it's just the hateful people who are making comments but when her fans come to praise her it's because we're getting paid. Go away. You obviously don't know anything about her. Go to any forum and you'll see people praising her for free for taking on Perez.

      Her show trended on Twitter last night and she's getting a lot of positive comments on music forums. No one needs to be paid to praise her.

      A lot of Ke$ha fans are going onto blogs and twitter trying to push mainly two songs Love Into the Light and Last Goodbye. They're trying to pressure RCA to release one of them since many fans are tired of only party songs getting released. You can be sure RCA isn't paying anyone to mention those songs. They'd rather fans just shut up and accept the party songs they release as singles.

      Kesha had any integrity as an artist, she would stop churning out the stupid party songs and focus on the more legitimate ones. She needs to stand up to her label, but she won't. She'll keep taking the easy route and chasing the almighty dollar until she's yesterday's news. Happens all the time in this industry.

      Joanne, hopefully rca people are prowling faceboook, twitter, forums and blogs picking up the constant hints. I'm sure they are but they've been ignoring us since 2011.

      I didn't mention Love Into the light because of a fan movement. I didn't know about it. I just thought how ironic it was that just two weeks ago he was in the audience at that show listening to her sing a song like that and yet last night he was ripping her apart on Twitter. I can't stand that guy and I'm glad she took him on. Although I'm worried about what it will mean for her.

    I've always respected Ke$ha for standing up for the weak whether it's bullied kids or abused animals. But she proved with her show that she really means it. She didn't have to take on that ultimate bully Perez Hilton. He was sucking up to her and writing positive post after positive post. She could have pretended his past abuse of her hadn't happened and she could have continued to enjoy those benefits. But she proved that she has strong principles and really is the nice, decent person people who know says she is. And the way she took him on too. When he praised her concert her response was "I don't care" and then her mother said she wanted to beat the crap out of him. Of course, he's going to retaliate and already did on Twitter. He obviously didn't take her performance of Love Into the Light at the NewNowNext Awards to heart even though he was right there in the audience when she performed. He's still an angry, hateful person who doesn't care that his words and actions actually hurt people. Good for you, Ke$ha. Continue to be a voice for the weak and stand up to the haters.

      Her performance of Love Into the Light was amazing. She actually wanted it to be her third single but she said her record label won't let her release ballads. It's such a shame because Kesha is far better at ballads than the likes of Adele and Rihanna who are having such massive success with them. Even some older people who are fans of traditional country music told me they preferred Kesha's cover of Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You to the versions by Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton. That says a lot. If she pulled off a perfect performance of Love Into the Light at a big show like American Idol or America's Got Talent, it would easily go to number 1 especially because people love inspirational songs.

    I need more songs like Past Lives and Wonderland from Kesha. They're literally two of the sweetest songs ever. The party songs are fun and all but it's her thoughtful songs that I really love especially since they show off that lovely voice.

    The show was great. She addressed bullying and called people out for being hateful. She took on Perez Hilton who used to tear her down but was trying to become her buddy. I respect someone who doesn't just talk the talk but actually takes on a bully at great risk to herself. It makes her animal rights and anti-bullying activism seem real and sincere. Now if she could only release Last Goodbye as a single or will her useless label keep it hidden away on her albums like they do with all her best songs.

    So, that's what they are calling it now? Glitter? I wonder if it makes your lips all sparkly, too? Instead of getting a glow on, you get all sparkly? Fascinating! Whatever, Ke$ha. lol...

      Does being a hateful jerk who spews ignorant comments about someone you don't know make you feel better about yourself? You're a sad and immature person.
