See Ke$ha's Most Shocking Look Yet

Clean hair, fresh makeup, a serious lack of glitter — Ke$ha, is that really you?

The pop starlet arrived at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night looking soft and feminine — a nice change from her edgy, often over-the-top appearance.

Ke$ha — who performed her single “Die Young” during the awards — stepped out in a sweet lace dress and sexy black Stuart Weitzman stilettos, finished with romantic blond waves, a smoky eye and otherwise natural makeup. She did bring a little rock ‘n’ roll to the carpet, though, adding spiky studs to her left ear.

While some fans were confused by her subtle look (one wrote, “so basic what … happened to you?”), many others told her how beautiful she looked. Our opinion? She looks amazing! What do you think? Tell us: How do you feel about Ke$ha’s makeunder?

Kelly on

I think she looks fantastic!! I’m not a fan of her usual, over the top looks but this look brings out her natural beauty.

Samantha on

Beautiful! Makes you look like the lady you are.

Melissa on

One word says it all ‘Wow” lol.I have never listened to her so all i know about her is that she always looks ridiculous in her pics until now…Brava :)

Amanda on

Omg she looks incredible!!

kinsey on

AMAZING! love the different look from her usual crazy look!!

Amanda on

You STILL can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. And she will never be anything but a complete sow. Sorry to the real sows out there.

Donna on

She’s still thick in the middle.

handovertheremote on

That’s really her? Wow!!! She is beautiful!

Pamela on

Not so shocking at all quite pretty really, you dont have to be a waif to be pretty. (you out ther calling suueey)

Linda on

Much better than her garbage chic look she had. The hair is extremely white blond. Maybe a bit too much with the hair dye but good to see her looking like a lady.

m on

Wow, she actually looks pretty and normal cleaned up.

Blue sky on

Much better. I thought it was Gwen Stafani in a profile pic in another site. Yes, that’s a compliment.

kiss my. .toe on

Very pretty

kesha on

Umm no..she looked hotter in her grunge kind of look

kesha on

Ummm no..she looked hotter in her grunge type look

tee on

It’s a blonde-dashian.

Jumbybird on

Looks like a human female.

Monica on

She looks cute! She’s at that age where she should be creative and experiment with different styles. Rock on sista :)

Benny on

She is very average looking and her 15 minutes of fame were up many years ago. She’s a has been now.

shaun on


Tara on

the girl’s gotta grow up sooner or later right? maybe just a taste of what’s to come.

Sparkle on

She looks amazing!

No Name on

kesha is still a total loser just like the beaver himself LoL

Dennis Miller on

She looked like she’s been on a donut diet.

Kathy on

I think she looks lovely and so much more attractive than the “ridden hard and put away wet look” that she normally sports. Well Done!

charp on

Don’t listen to anyone kesha…you look beautiful!!! Just amazing!

Debra on

i didn’t realize she was still around making music.

mindy on

I don’t think this look works for her, because she is not a feminine looking gal.

Rain on

She looks better than usual but the fact is that she has a man-ish physique. No neck, broad shoulders and she looks like she is in drag.

Easyup on

But how long will it last?

Sadie G on

I’m not a huge fan of that hair style, but she looks better than ever. So beautiful.

love it on

She looks great. The hair is too blond but she does look like a lady. I hope she continues looking put together. I thought she was pregnant too.

Tigs on

OMG, she looks so pretty. I love this girl. Anyone who loves animals like she does has a good soul.

Fara on

Usually when you put a new coat of paint on an old barn, it cleans up nice, unfortunately, in her case, no amount of paint covers her fugliness.

Jo on

She’s very pretty. The shoes seem too dark and heavy for such a light outfit.

Kyra on

Those shoes don’t math the dress at all

dbm on

she should try this look more often instead of looking like something that just crawled out of a dumpster at the back of a night club.

mrsmass on

meh. she at least looks like she’s bathed, but i don’t think the dress or bleached beyond belief hair are doing much for her.

Mari on

I think she looks nice but she looks like everyone else. Her original style is what I really like about her. She can glam up and stay true. Just my opinion.

thenamestation on

I’m actually most shocked by a 21-year-old Botoxed to the absolute max.

Britney oxeye on

I like Ke$ha but that picture is unflattering! Her left knee looks like it is a foot higher than her right one!

Tina on

Better, but still not good. Needs to work with what she’s got. And that short dress in that body shape, with those legs, just does not look good to me. There’s just something about her that you just can’t cover up. But thanks for the effort.

Cappy84 on

She looks gorgeous! Love it.

heather on

She looks gorgeous didn’t really know this was possible considering what she has looked like in the past!

Kar on

I would not have known it was her. She looks great!

KD on


Ellie on

Omg i love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Ellie on


blair on

She looks beautiful!

Shannon on

She looks like a man.

benice on

She is beautiful! She is not fat and does not look like a man!!!

Annia on

If Debbie Gibson & Britney Spears have baby, she would be it.

cirquedelatelier on

She looks fantastic! However, she doesn’t have to clean away all her dirty look if that is who she is….. there is a middle ground between the two that would still look good (if dirt is who she really is and not some pop creation)

ramond on

Um way 2 sexual

Leah on

Still doesn’t change the fact that she can’t sing and got famous on a fluke

лучший натуральный шампунь on

Здрямки. У мя есть проблема
очень выпадают волосы, что делать?

acne on
