Ke$ha, Framed

Framed

Hello, readers, and welcome back to Framed, the world's longest-lived and best-loved funny-captions-to-music-videos resource. Whereas other music video critics offer you "context," history" and "opinion," Framed offers really funny, usually pointless, made-up stuff.

It's certainly great to be an American!

This week's video is Ke$ha's uber-popular "TiK ToK," a 2009 song that's hit #1 in five countries and set a weekly download record for female artists. Ke$ha, who dresses as if she was raised in a barn, which she sort of was (the San Fernando Valley), has been called "the degenerate Hannah Montana." Not that it matters: even the venerable Billboard praised the song for "singing teasingly about excess pleasures, from drinking to men."

The video is a bit of a mess, in a good way, as it follows the party-happy singer through a strange day in SoCal. We think you'll like it, and value your opinion. Ke$ha: best new star yet, or not?
