    When we think of Dirty Pop we used to think of N*Sync and N*Sync only, but with her raspy, screamed lyrics, grungy hair, and ripped tights, Ke$ha is becoming more and more the definitive Dirty Pop icon. And it looks like that's something we can agree on! For her cover spread in V Magazine's Americana issue out May 10, (yes, we said cover spread), Ke$ha admitted “I do feel like there are the pop stars of the world and then I’m like their dirty little sister, running around with shit on my face in combat boots because I can’t walk in heels." Shit on her face indeed; The V photo spread shows K crying with smudged American flag face paint (as well as "glamour" shots with windblown hair).

    Ke$ha also dished that she'd love to collab with with a range of artists wider than her teased locks, "I would love to have Keith Richards on the record. I would sure as hell like to do a collaboration with Bieber and at the same time do a song with the Flaming Lips." While we'd be interested to hear what those tracks sound like, we recommend that K stick with the pop thing for now, no matter how filthy it may be. And hey, if she's looking to link up with someone, at least it looks like Britney's a fan —the queen of pop says that she listens to her "dirty little sister's" songs on the treadmill. Us too, Brit, us too. Click through for all the pics and tell us if you think this is patriotic, then read the whole interview over at V.

The Most Flattering Swimsuit For YOU

Lately, it's taken nearly all our willpower not to think about sun rays, long weekends, and beach hair — from the actual beach and not a bottle. But, there's really no bigger buzzkill than hours of trying on bathing suits that epically fail to do your body justice. And, the fact is, your swimwear is probably the read
