Ke$ha Is a Math and History Nerd

To say that pop star Ke$ha is a poor role model is kind of like saying that Jack Daniel's is a poor substitute for toothpaste. All of her songs share the same basic theme of waking up in a bathtub somewhere and stumbling bleary-eyed into the world in search of alcohol and cock without stopping long enough to shower. Being the only person in the last 50 years fucked up enough to find Mick Jagger bangable, she's reason enough to mandate that people should have more IQ points than No. 1 hits.

But Actually ...
Ke$ha is notably absent from the crop of celebrities who have been photographed by TMZ tumbling out of a limo, sans underwear, with a cocaine mustache and a DUI. Google it if you don't believe us. That's because, even compared to more wholesome entertainers, Ke$ha is a goddamn academic powerhouse who enjoys Cold War history lectures more than getting wasted in a club with Lindsay Lohan.
Before she got into music professionally, Ke$ha was enrolled in an International Baccalaureate program in high school, excelling in physics and math, and after school was out, she would often drive to college to sneak into history lectures. When was the last time you broke the rules in order to attend more lectures than you had to? When her friends were probably heading to the park to drink box wine and smoke cigarettes, Ke$ha was learning for fun.

With an SAT score of 1500 back when that was only 100 points short of perfect, she was all set to attend the prestigious Barnard College when, according to her, music industry titans just called her up saying "Hey, be a pop star," to which she evidently replied "kk, fuk skewl lol."
