I'm still covered in glitter. That's right -- on Monday, August 2, I caught an awesome Ke$ha performance, and it was everything you would think a Ke$ha show would be.
I was at the Shock the World 2010 Event at the Manhattan Center in New York City, where I got to check out the brand new Casio G-Shock and Baby-G watches. Why was Ke$ha there? She's the new Baby-G brand ambassador! Not only does she star in a new ad campaign, she'll be designing two watches for the brand that will hit stores in 2011.
Throughout the event, Ke$ha had three outfit changes -- she started off in a shredded Indianapolis Colts tee, glittery short shorts, a purple Baby-G watch, and a giant gold cuff for the press conference; changed into a sheer one-shouldered black dress, baby blue Baby-G watch, and black heels, which she topped off with light blue lipstick, for the red carpet; and paired a Van Halen tank and gold shorts with a glittery blue star over her right eye and three light blue body paint stripes on her left arm. I got to see Ke$ha's red carpet outfit right up close -- J-14 was the first mag she talked to!
Ke$ha's performance was definitely entertaining -- the stage had three giant panels full of light bulbs, instruments were covered in Christmas lights, two skeletons adorned the back up singers, and Ke$ha's microphone was held up by a fake hand! My fave song of the night was her newest single, "Take It Off," but she also showed us a never-before-scene music video for "Animal," jumped across the stage for "Blah Blah Blah," and ended the show with a super energetic version of "Tik Tok." That would be when I got covered in the glitter and confetti that she shot out into the crowd. It was definitely a fun night!
Check out some of my pics from the event here:

What do you think of Ke$ha? Do you think she'll make a good Baby-G Brand Ambassador?
