Ke$ha Isn’t Straight (Or Gay) + Has ‘Zero Tolerance’ For Bullies

On New Year’s Eve, Ke$ha showed us she knew how to bring the house down. Now she’s also opening up about what love means to her. (Hint: it isn’t about gender!)

“I don’t love just men,” she said in an interview with Seventeen. “I love people. It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with.” If this rings a bell for you, that’s because the “C’Mon” singer said something along the same lines in 2010 to Out: “I wouldn’t say I’m gay or straight — I don’t like labeling things anyway. I just like people.”

While Ke$ha personally isn’t into labeling her sexuality, K$ has a thing or two to say about people who want to label theirs and get bullied for it. But it’s not just LGBT bullying that gets her goat — bullying for any reason is so not cool.

“I’m all about standing up to gay/lesbian/transgender bullying, but it’s also about my little brother,” she said. “He’s 13 and he gets made fun of because he has a stutter. I just have zero tolerance for people making fun of others.”

Speaking in response to Ke$ha’s words, GLAAD‘s Seth Adam said, “Ke$ha’s comments not only serve to inspire and support young people who may be struggling to come out, they also echo the support of a generation that overwhelmingly agrees that every person should be able to love openly and honestly.”

Now that’s something worth partying about! *tosses glitter*
