Inexplicably popular music star Ke$ha had a pretty busy day on Saturday, as she was also one of the stars at the 2013 Kids Choice Awards. But she started her weekend off by turning the obnoxious down to 5 and attending the 2013 Genesis Awards Benefit Gala, where she was presented with the Wyler Award for her efforts to spread animal rights awareness, as opposed to her legs.
Ke$ha was honored along with Stephen Colbert, Brian Williams and Drew Barrymore and, as you can see above, she at least tried not to look like an asshole in showing her appreciation for the award.
"If you follow my music, you know I'm a bit of a jackass," Kesha said. "But this is one part of my life I take really seriously. Helping animals has always been my goal." (antiMUSIC)
As for the people at the Genesis Awards, they're happy to have anyone in the entertainment industry share their cause, even if it is a woman who claims to have sex with ghosts while writing songs about her pussy with her mom.
"We are so grateful to the news and entertainment media for keeping animal protection issues firmly in their view in genres as diverse as comedy programming and documentaries. Concern for the welfare of animals has universal audience appeal, and since so much of what negatively impacts animals occurs out of sight, it's important that these issues remain in the media spotlight," said Beverly Kaskey, senior director of HSUS' Hollywood Outreach program and exec producer of the Genesis Awards.

It's a lot of fun to make fun of Ke$ha. A lot. She's an unapologetic Lady Gaga knockoff, and I'm pretty sure that her upcoming concert tour with Pitbull will lead to the gates of hell swinging wide open. But she has at least earned some cool points for her work with animals. You know, until she blows it all by performing a ping pong ball trick at a kids' hospital.
