So, if you’ve been a super-mega-awesome devoted MTV Style fan from the wee beginning, there’s a SLIGHT chance you might remember the time that Ke$ha wore a shark on her face. If not (hahaha), let us explain. Back in 2011, Ke$ha tweeted a pic of herself sporting a hammerhead mask (?) with the caption “I have a new spirit animal!!” and literally nothing else. No explanation, no follow up, nothing. Since it was in October, we assumed it was some pre-Halloween gag, but thanks to the latest episode of My Crazy Beautiful Life, the mystery is FINALLY explained—nearly two years after we wrote the original post. *buries face into hands, sobs*
Basically, it went a little something like this: Ke$ha was flying to Brazil to play the final show on her giant “Get Sleazy” world tour, and when she landed, she was informed that there were tons of paparazzi surrounding the airport. Wearing only a graphic tee, aviators, and PJ pants, she said, “Paps? Oh god, I need to change.” Then, she found a safe spot to huddle with her crew and asked her brother Lagan, “Where’s the makeup dude? Tell him to come here and face paint me.” Since she was already holding a stuffed shark in her hands, he boldly suggested that she tape the shark to her face. Ke$ha found this incredibly amusing and, as they say, the rest was history. Below, we broke down the hilariously amazing style moment in all it’s glory because, hello, WE WAITED TWO FREAKIN’ YEARS FOR THIS. Enjoooyyy!
