We now know what's been hiding under all that glitter and body paint all this time — a very pretty girl! Ke$ha allowed herself to get a much-needed makeunder in the new issue of Glamour and I have to admit, the soft makeup and sleek hair — not to mention outfits that aren't ripped to shreds and covered with feathers — are a huge improvement. But sadly, don't expect the "Tik Tok" singer to stick with the toned-down look for very long. "Oh, the body paint stays," Ke$ha tells the mag. "It's my favorite thing to do. Sometimes I have parties at my house in Nashville and it's clothing-optional, and we just body-paint each other and run around, and I have a giant bed. I'm very much in touch with that side of myself." In fact, Ke$ha is coming out with her very own line of body paint for those who want to play along at home.

12 Secret Signs He's Into You
And when she's not obsessing over body paint, the 24-year-old — who also loves Bumble and Bumble dry shampoo because "You don't have to shower" -- is hard at work writing the follow-up to her smash 2010 album, "Animal," even learning how to play a few instruments, including guitar. "I need to be badass," explains Ke$ha. "People say that rock 'n' roll is dead, and I am making it my mission to resurrect it. I have rock 'n' roll pumping through my veins."
Ke$ha is also overflowing with immature humor. Her stage shows feature a giant dancing penis, which she even keeps around offstage too. "Sometimes when I'm sad, I make my assistant put on the penis outfit and bounce around my house," adds the Nashville native, who's quick to point out she's very adult in other areas. "Don't get me wrong: I do destroy men on a weekly basis. It's like a hobby. I'm like a praying mantis. They f—k me, and then I eat them."
But between focusing on her upcoming album, as well her animal-friendly jewelry line, and fake-fur line, there's little time for an actual relationship. Not that Ke$ha is concerned. "If a man is not, like, the second coming, then what's the point? I have other s--t to do…Eventually, I would love to be on my deathbed and looked at as an icon. Right now I'm still at the baby stages of my career."
