Ke$ha Dismisses Misconceptions, Admits to Being 'Kissing Slut'

Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- We're used to seeing Ke$ha running covered in glitter with no pants, but she looks like a clean-cut college girl on the cover of SELF magazine's July issue, with light makeup, neon-green hooded sweatshirt and black workout shorts.  Inside, the singer dismisses many of the misconceptions about her, like the fact that people think she's a perpetually-drunk sex maniac.

Discussing the fact that she hands out condoms with her face on them at her concerts, Ke$ha tells SELF, "I think every girl should invest in a condom with her face on it -- it's super awkward and hilarious.  But people think because I hand out condoms, I must be some sort of ho.  That's not the case."

"I'm a little bit of a kissing slut," she continues. "But usually, I just make out and run away."

Ke$ha also says that despite her party-girl reputation, she works hard to keep fit and healthy, and you can certainly see the results in the magazine's photo spread. "People think I sit around and drink whiskey all day, but I couldn't keep up a three-month tour if I were getting hammered every night," she points out. "Training for a tour is like training for a marathon."

Ke$ha says her fitness routine includes running, rock climbing, biking, swimming, yoga and circuit training, and that "Eighty percent of the time, I watch my portions and eat veggies and lean protein."

"I...want to look good when I'm nearly naked onstage in front of thousands of people," she tells SELF about her workout goals. "I'd prefer it to be a pleasant experience when people look at me...I don't have the best body in the world, but I choose to celebrate it."

Former 'L Word' Star Kicked off Plane for Kissing Her Girlfriend

Justin Sullivan/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- An openly gay actress who starred on the TV series The L Word says she was removed from a Southwest Airlines flight Monday for kissing her female partner.

Leisha Hailey tweeted, "Flt. attendant said that it was a 'family' airline and kissing was not ok."

She wrote that she and her partner were escorted off the plane "for getting upset about the issue."

Hailey demanded a refund and a public apology from Southwest Airlines, adding, "Hate is not a family value. I will never fly this airline."

After the Twitter account for her music group, Uh Huh Her, retweeted what she wrote, Southwest Airlines tweeted an apology and ask her to contact them so it could look into the matter.

However, the airline later said in a statement obtained by, "Initial reports indicate that we received several passenger complaints characterizing the behavior as excessive.  Our crew, responsible for the comfort of all Customers on board, approached the passengers based solely on behavior and not gender. "

Hailey played Alice Pieszecki on The L Word.  Her recent TV credits include CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Drop Dead Diva and American Dad!
