Newman's Review of Ke$ha's song 'Tik Tok'

Like many people I have had the song 'Tik Tok' by Ke$ha stuck in my head for while now. Catchy. As much as I like the song however, there are a couple of things that I would like to address:

1. "I'm talking pedicure on our toes, toes. Trying on all our clothes, clothes" - Ok, first off it seems like you have a bit of a stuttering problem, which, is fine but you could probably have fixed that in the editing. And, "Pedicure on our toes" is really redundant. You see, that's what a pedicure is - it's on your toes. You wouldn't get a pedicure on your hands, you'd get a manicure.

2. "Now, the dudes are lining up cause they hear we got swagger, but we kick 'em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger" - Are you telling me you are actually citing Mick Jagger as a sex-symbol? Are you sure you didn't just use his name because it rhymes with swagger? If you did here's another idea - just change the word swagger. "Now, the dudes are lining up cause the way our pants fit, but we kick 'em to the curb unless they look like Brad Pitt." Or, "Now the dudes are lining up cause we're super-duper, but we kick em to the curb unless they look like Bradley Cooper." Are these good examples? No. However, I'm sure you could come up with something.

3. You spell your name with a dollar sign. That's just flat-out incorrect. Also, you just put out your first single, so unless you have another source of insane income, I don't think you can use the dollar symbol in your name. People who can do this include: $imon Cowell, Jennifer Ani$ton and Si$qo (only when The Thong Song was popular though.)

4. Brushing your teeth with a bottle of Jack - Horrid, horrid idea.

There are many more things about this song that irk me (like the lack of the letter 'c' in the title) but I will leave it at that. All, that being said, it is still pretty darn catchy.

#3 - totally agree. i mean, technically you'd pronounce her name, "Key-ka-ching-sha", emphasis on whatever syllable you want. and what i hate is that i'd been pronouncing it "KEY-shah" this whole time. no one told me that the dollar sign is actually an 'S' with an accent mark going right through it. that's how everyone else knew to pronounce it "kehhh-sha" my bad.

Ke$ha and Justin Bieber made a cute couple at the Grammies!

Allow me le at least clear up one point about Ke$ha. She spells her name with $ cause she was the female voice on Flo Rida' "Right Round", which was a worldwide #1 hit and for whatever reason she was not payed any royalties or performance fee. They essentially stole her performance. So to make a point, she now spells her name with a $ since she made no money for her part on a #1 hit.

I agree however Mick jagger is one old dude.....
