This has to be the start of a press and content campaign that is simply going to blow our minds. The promo for one of the most anticipated pop albums of the year has officially commenced. Here is Ke$ha in a spread titled Born in the U$A by Inez & Vinoodh on the cover of V Magazine’s: The Americana issue. There isn’t a whole lot of information on the new album, but V did manage to source a quote on Ke$ha from Ms Britney Spears herself, albeit via email:

Part of her mission was achieved when she found herself parlaying a fever into a musical high as she was co-writing the global smash hit “Til the World Ends” for Britney Spears. “To write a song for an icon, someone who stands for pop, it really doesn’t get better than that,” she says.

The admiration is apparently mutual. “Ke$ha brings an incredibly carefree, fun-loving spirit to American pop music,” Britney says via e-mail. “I love listening to her songs when I’m on the treadmill. They help me power through my workout.”
