Ke$ha, who has a number one hit with “Tik Tok,” posted a video last week of what appears to be her vandalizing the famed Hollywood sign in California. The singer with a group of friends pulled a white sheet over the first few letters of the sign and spray-painted “Ke$haWood” over it. It turns out the clip was a fake and Ke$ha didn’t actually go near the Hollywood sign, but you can still see the video at YouTube.

KE$HA TALKS “BLAH BLAH BLAH” VIDEO
Ke$ha recently shot a video for “Blah Blah Blah,” along with the boys of 3Oh!3, who appear on the club anthem. Ke$ha told MTV News at the shoot, "The whole concept of the video was a bunch of douche-y guys macking on me as usual, and me making them eat their toupees or other various items. At one point, I get to be strapped to this harness and bouncing around everywhere, and it was really cool." Ke$ha explained that the dance tune originated from a discussion she had in the studio on the politics of female-male relationships. Ke$ha’s debut album, Animal, has sold over 284-thousand copies in just four weeks.
