My Crazy Beautiful Life is a 2012 illustrated autobiography by the pop singer Kesha and photographer/filmmaker Steven Greenstreet. [1] Photography was also provided by Jason Sheldon and Lagan Sebert, who also helped develop the project with Kesha. The book was published by Simon & Schuster on November 20, 2012 to coincide with the release of her album Warrior on November 30, 2012. [2] The book's title, My Crazy Beautiful Life is taken after her song "Crazy Beautiful Life" from her 2010 EP Cannibal. [3]

Synopsis

In My Crazy Beautiful Life, Kesha details her "thoughts and reflections" about her life and contains photographs from various points in her life, both before and after she became a singer. [4] [5] The singer has described the book as being "a more complete picture of what my life is really like". [3] The book also goes into some of the meanings behind some of her song lyrics, with Kesha writing that her song " Blah Blah Blah" was "a conscious move to talk about men like they talked about women". [6]

Reception

Critical reception for the book has been mixed, with Vice stating that the book was "pretty boring" in comparison to her songs. [7] A reviewer for The Atlantic commented that "some revealing nuggets from Ke$ha's frighteningly glittery new autobiography ... suggest that in some ways, she might be just what some of the 20th century's most famous feminist thinkers had in mind." [8] The Daily Targum praised the book, calling it "[s]hort and sweet". [9]
