SONG OFF: Ke$ha’s ‘C’mon’ vs Justin Bieber’s ‘All Around The World’


What do Ke$ha and Justin Bieber have in common? Well, they’re both international superstars – obviously. They also share a birthday today; Justin turns 19(!) while Ke$ha will be celebrating her 26th. To think we remember when they were just bright-eyed young pop innocents! (well, not so much Ke$ha…)

They also both have new singles out on Sunday. Justin will be unleashing the dancetastic ‘All Around The World’ from his Believe album, while K-dolla is following up ‘Die Young’ with new party anthem ‘C’mon’. So we thought we’d use the excuse for a good old-fashioned SONG OFF:

Would your mum approve?: The video features Ke$ha getting drunk, quitting her job for no reason, getting into cars with strange cats and trashing the local co-op. On reflection, probably not.
