Not only is Ke$ha readying the release of her new album Warrior, the party pop aficionado is also preparing an illustrated memoir called My Crazy Beautiful Life, The Associated Press reports.

Out on November 20th through Touchstone (Warrior hits shelves on the 30th), Ke$ha noted in a statement that the memoir will show how her life is "not all glamourous" but is "all real." 

Touchstone, a Simon & Schuster imprint, added that the book will contain "thoughts and reflections" from Ke$ha, paired with pictures covering her childhood to her most recent tour.

You can check out the first taste of Warrior now on the endless-night anthem "Die Young."

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
