Long before she was “Tik Tok”ing her way to the top of the charts, Ke$ha was hanging out with Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie in Nashville. During an episode for “The Simple Life 3:Interns”, Paris and Nicole try their hand as wedding planners. In addition to “succeeding” with their designated duties for the Dearly Beloved Wedding Chapel, the girls decide to help their host, a single mom, up on a blind date.
The single mom in question, is none other than punk-rock songwriter, Pebe Sebert. Say who??? I know, right. Pebe is the mother of current pop-sensation, Ke$ha. During the episode, a then teenaged Ke$ha, helps the reality star duo conduct interviews in hopes of finding a love interest for her mama.
Ke$ha often credits her mom for her love for music. Pebe would bring her and her two brothers to recording studios and backstage during her concerts. She also encouraged Ke$ha to sing and taught her how to songwrite. Til this day, the two still co-write songs together. As a interesting side note, Ke$ha’s older brother, Lagan, writes for The Huffington Post.
Regardless of what you think about Ke$ha, you have to give it up for her single mother for raising kids successful in their desired fields. She maybe a flash-in-the-pan, but she can always say she had the number one single/album of the new decade.
