Singer/pop star/madwoman Kesha, with a net worth of approximately $8.5 million, is one of the most talked-about entertainers working today. She started building that net worth at age 18, when she was first signed to a record contract by Dr. Luke's Kemosabe Entertainment. A career in music probably wasn't the biggest surprise in Kesha's life, since her mother is professional songwriter Pebe Sebert. In 2009, her breakthrough came in the form of an appearance on "Right Round," the hit single from rapper Flo Rida track. Later that year, her debut single "Tik Tok" began her career as a pop star in earnest.
Her first album, Animal, debuted at number one in the United States and also in Canada and Greece. With a wide range of stated musical influences including everyone from Dolly Parton to The Beastie Boys to Iggy Pop, her versatile (though grating to some) musical style might have real longevity, leading to more hit singles, albums, and concerts. Her second as-yet-untitled studio album is said to emulate 70s rock music from artists like Pop, Led Zeppelin, and AC/DC. Kesha also draws inspiration from the world of film, with imagery in her music videos and concerts being strongly reminiscent of movies like A Clockwork Orange.
