She’s got the looks of a rock star, the music that celebrates eternal party mode, and the attitude of a girl hell bent on causing a ruckus. She even brushes her teeth with a bottle of Jack! Yet in spite of having the appearance and attitude of a hot mess down to a T, the “C’mon” singer just recently pulled another eye raiser: she drank her own urine.
“I heard it was good for you. That was, like, the rumor,” she told the Hollywood Reporter. “But I don’t know. I’m also just one that doesn’t shy away from things. I’m not good at saying ‘no’ so I just figure, f— it, I’ll try anything once.”
And how did it taste, Ke$ha?
“I wouldn’t recommend it. It was pretty gross,” she said. “And I don’t think it really did anything very beneficial to me, so yeah, I wouldn’t probably do it again.”
MTV has been airing “Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life,” a series that documents the personal and ahem professional life of the singer songwriter, which includes the superstar most recently taking a sample of her goods.
However, the episode has already riled up viewers, including Tim Winter, the president of Parents Television Council, who is using her urine as a stepping stone for a campaign to allow cable users to pay for whatever networks they watch.
“If given the opportunity, I can’t imagine that parents would want to pay for a cable network that airs an episode of a pop star drinking her own urine,” Winter told the LA Times in a released statement, “and that is why Congress needs to take seriously the idea of giving consumers the ability to choose and pay for only the cable networks they want.”
Fair enough, I guess.
But let’s dial it back to Ke$ha. Did she just document a publicity stunt to rank in ratings and curious viewers? Or does the body naturally produce a magical elixir of life? Do our very urethras hold the fountain of youth?
Let’s clarify: urine is not the product of your body’s waste system; it is actually the product of blood filtration. Your body takes the toxins in your blood, removes them, and compiles it into solid waste. Then your kidney acts as the second wash, refiltering the blood to produce urine which is highly sterile, mostly water, and apparently nutritious.
I’m not making this up. You can even YouTube it.
Auto-urine therapy users believe that their urine can help aid in fighting the common cold to cancer and can also increase energy levels and sexual performance. And even if you ain’t drinkin your makeshift lemonade, apparently Madonna takes a leak on her own feet to cure athlete’s foot.
Now herein lies the question. Should YOU drink your urine? Personally, I’ll pass on the delightful offer because ew! It’s pee pee!health, Ke$ha, MTV, urine
