Ke$ha: Shepherd's Bush Empire, London ****

Ian Gittins, Guardian, The, 17 December 2010

IT'S EASY TO dismiss Ke$ha as a Primark take on Lady Gaga, but such an appraisal disregards the fact that 23-year-old Kesha Sebert this year enjoyed a No 1 US album with her platinum-selling debut, Animal. She has reacted to her success by rushing out an "augmented" version of her album, Animal + Cannibal, which she is currently promoting via this whistle-stop European tour.
