Singer also says she's a 'praying mantis' who likes to 'destroy men on a weekly basis'

Ke$ha has claimed that she makes her assistant dress up in a ‘penis outfit’ to cheer her up when she’s feeling sad.

The ‘Tik Tok’ singer, who is currently working on the follow-up to her 2010 LP ‘Animal’, told Glamour magazine that although she saw herself as a maneater, she still found time to indulge her juvenile sense of humour.

“I’m just very amused by five-year-old humour,” she said. “Don’t get me wrong: I do destroy men on a weekly basis. It’s like a hobby. I’m like a praying mantis. They fuck me, and then I eat them.”

She went on to add:

But who isn’t amused by a giant, dancing penis? Sometimes when I’m sad, I make my assistant put on the penis outfit and bounce around my house.

Last month (January 7), Ke$ha claimed that she wanted to move away from her previous “brash” and “sassy” sound on her new LP so people could see her “vulnerability”.

The singer previously claimed that she has written over 200 songs for the album and cited the likes of Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and Iggy Pop as influences.
