Kesha went through ‘awkward, chubby, total weirdo phases’

41831, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - Monday June 21 2010. Kesha has a busy night in Hollywood visiting various hang outs, but first, she did her bit for charity. The singer donated her time to to the Gulf Telethon at the Larry King Live studios before heading over to Rent-a-Wreck in West LA - maybe she thinks driving a beat up car in Hollywood will help her keep a low profile!! Later, Kesha and her pals went to El Chavo Mexican restaurant for dinner, then on to Gold Room in Silver Lake where they finished their evening. Action packed!

‘People told me, “You shouldn’t be singing,”‘ she said.

‘I went through awkward, chubby, total weirdo phases. I was in a marching band.’

‘Did you ever think a little, chubby, awkward girl with braces in the marching band would be No. 1 on top of the pop charts? No, you wouldn’t.’
