Ke$ha is a refreshingly candid pop star. Whereas some starlets are very on-message in interviews, she isn't afraid to admit potentially embarrassing details about her life, or playfully discuss her plans for the future. Here's a few of the best bits from Austin Scaggs' Q&A with the singer in the latest issue of Rolling Stone (subscription only).

Ke$ha on her winter vacation:
"I went scuba diving with a bunch of sea creatures — angelfish, sea turtles, stingrays, barracuda and a hammerhead shark — on a boat with a bunch of grizzly bearded dudes. I got a tattoo of a feather on my foot from a crackhead."

Ke$ha on sneaking into concerts:
"I snuck into a Strokes show and lost a shoe, but I got in there. I snuck into Coachella four years running. One year I ended up onstage with Björk! I always wear flat boots so I can climb."

Ke$ha on her ambition as a lyricist:
"I want to make it my personal mission to utilize words that most people would think are potentially inappropriate."

Ke$ha on her plan for the future:
"I'm gravitating toward making a solid cock-rock record next."

Ke$ha on her new house:
"There are foxes in my front yard, and it looks like a pirate ship inside, and the pool has laser beams in it."
