Sorry daddy, but I'm not that easy

I'mma take it back to where my man and my girls is"

Not even a jealous girlfriend will get Kesha down. "Stephen" is a song from Kesha's debut album Animal. David Gamson, former member of the 1980s synth pop band Scritti Politti, co-wrote and co-produced the song. Kesha named "Stephen" as one of her favorite songs on the album. 

"I saw you
In your tight a** rocker pants
You saw me too
I laughed
'Cause I was completely trashed
And I watched your
Ugly girlfriend
Sneer across the room
As if I really care
That she's here with you"

Them boys, they want my coochie
I say nope, I'm no hootchie
Your homegirl hatin', I say who she?"

If you're looking for a show
Where they go hardcore
And there's glitter on the floor"

For Kesha, it doesn't matter whether the object of her affection came with someone else, together they can celebrate the spirit of the moment. Despite later controversy over the "die young" line, Kesha intends the song as a celebration of life. The song was a major commercial success peaking at #2 on the pop chart and crossing over to the top 15 at adult pop radio and top 10 on the dance chart. Unfortunately, in the wake of the Newtown, CT shooting in December, 2012, "Die Young" was pulled from mainstream pop radio playlists.

"I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums
Oh, what a shame that you came here with someone
So while you're here in my arms
Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young"

"I wake up in the front yard, we don't care
Wine stain on the sofa, we don't care
I threw up in the closet, and I don't care
'Cause the sun is coming up
And oh my God I think I'm still f**ked up"

Stockings ripped all up the side
Looking sick and sexy-fied
So let’s go-o-o"

Kesha's first hit single introduced the party girl with attitude. The opening line of the song came from an experience in which Kesha woke up surrounded by beautiful women. She speculated that Diddy might find himself in a similar situation. Kesha wrote "Tik Tok" by referencing her own party lifestyle. Diddy himself appears in the mix. "Tik Tok" hit #1 on the US pop chart and spent nine weeks at the top becoming one of the biggest debut hit singles of all time.

"Wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy
Put my glasses on, I’m out the door - I’m gonna hit this city
Before I leave, brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack
Cause when I leave for the night, I ain’t coming back"
