Ke$ha has admitted that she is ''sick'' of critics claiming that she is too reliant on Auto-Tune, and hopes her new LP will prove to them that she can actually sing.
The 'Tik Tok' hitmaker was keen to prove her critics wrong on her second album Warrior, and has banished all technological tricks and added more rock guitars in order to highlight her vocals.
Said the 25-year-old:
''I got really sick of people saying that I couldn't sing, because I can do very few things confidently in my life, and one of them is that I can sing,'' she told Vibe magazine.
The criticism bothered her so much that she actually planned at one point, to gravitate towards a straight rock sound.
''I remember thinking (with 'Animal'), 'Oh, it's just processed. People will learn that I can sing later.' But after reading some of the reviews that were like, 'She can't sing,' I finally was like, 'F*ck that,'' added Kesha.
The controversial American starlett is back in the charts after taking a short hiatus from the music scene at the end of 2011, after stating that she need some time out to embark on a ''spiritual journey.''
The feisty songstress also admitted that she requested her record label to ''back off'' when they started pressuring her to make new music.
She explained to Billboard.com:
''I had the label breathing down my neck to come back and make a new record, and I kind of had to tell everybody to f**k off for a month.
''I needed to get my head back on straight and sleep in the dirt for a little while. And then I came back and have literally been working on my second record ever since.''
