Her debut album Animal has sold over 2.5 million units worldwide and Ke$ha has had 7 consecutive Top 10 hits including four #1 singles in "TiK ToK", "Your Love Is My Drug," "We R Who We R" and the latest, "Die Young."

She has performed on dozens of television programs all over the world including MTV Europe Music Awards, Much Music Awards (Canada), Echo Awards (Germany), X Factor (Australia), American Music Awards, Billboard Awards, American Idol, Saturday Night Live and The Today Show Summer Concert Series. She has over 22 million Facebook likes, over 3 million Twitter followers and over 330 million views on VEVO.

Ke$ha is an international powerhouse, Animal has been certified Gold, Platinum or multi-Platinum in 15 markets (including Platinum in the United States) and was the biggest selling debut album from an international female in 2010 in the UK. In November 2012 Ke$ha released her first book through Touchstone Publishing. The full-color photo journal/scrapbook entitled My Crazy Beautiful Life, sheds light on Ke$ha's hectic, non-stop life on tour and provides an exclusive look into the creative process of her latest album, Warrior.
