Parents Television Council slams Ke$ha for drinking her own urine
Conservative group calls MTV a garbage channel that denies consumers a real choiceRead more on Ke$ha Listen to Ke$ha on Spotify
Was Ke$ha thirsty or temporarily insane? Those are the questions circulating today after an episode of her reality TV show had the singer urinate into a bottle and drink it.
MTV broadcast the episode of Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life last night and caused The Parents Television Council – an outspoken conservative advocacy group that has previously focused attacks on Friends, The Simpsons and Gossip Girl – to blast both Ke$ha and MTV in one very angry letter.
The PTC slammed the stunt as outrageous: "Why should we have to pay for this kind of garbage just so we can get access to Discovery, Disney, or the Golf channel? It's outrageous — and it shouldn't be that way. Consumers deserve choice.
They continued to focus vitriol on cable as a whole: "We should all have the ability to choose and pay for only the channels we want to watch, but the cable industry won't let that happen without a fight."
Ke$ha admitted that the incident was down to impulse and an inability to say no: "I'm also just one that doesn't shy away from things. I'm not good at saying 'no' so I just figure, fuck it, I'll try anything once. So I tried it.
"I wouldn't recommend it. It was pretty gross. And I don't think it really did anything very beneficial to me so, yeah, I wouldn't probably do it again."
