It isn’t particularly surprising that on last night’s episode of her MTV show, Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life, the world’s premier Gross-American pop star drank her own urine. While this is most likely not the most disgusting thing she’s ever done (or, quite possibly, not even the most disgusting thing she did that day) it is the first time she’s done something like this on cable television, and the conservative activist group The Parents Television Council is hilariously upset about it.
In a press release issued in advance of the show’s airing on Tuesday, PTC President Tim Winter declared, “It is an outrage that this kind of disgusting, vile content is being subsidized by each and every cable subscriber.” He also questioned why consumers should be subjected to this “just so [they] can get access to Disney, Discovery or the Golf channel”—a statement which will presumably be amended once he sees how much bear piss is featured on this Thursday’s episode of North America.
Ironically, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter about the stunt, Ke$ha said she did it because she “heard it was good for you,” which actually has some merit in the medical community. So shame on you, PTC, for trying to prevent Ke$ha from promoting the benefits of urotherapy. And have fun watching the Golf channel, dorks.
