Ke$ha dedicates “Your love is my drug” to Obama during post-Inauguration concert

Everyone’s favorite party girl Ke$ha dedicated her hit song “Your love is my drug” to none other than President Barack Obama at a concert Monday night in Washington, D.C. just hours after he was sworn in for a second term.

Before belting the song, Ke$ha announced that she’s “looking for a boyfriend or a girlfriend,” and “this next song’s about love, so I’m going to dedicate this to Mr. Barack Obama because I love him.”

The 25-year-old said she was especially inspired by Obama’s Inauguration speech. As a recently outed bisexual, the pop star said she appreciated him speaking out on gay rights – which she has described ”an issue very close to my heart.”

During his Inaugration speech earlier in the day, Obama said that he believes “our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law.”

After Ke$ha shared love for her favorite president on Twitter, she was ready to party in typical Ke$ha fashion. ”Our president rules. In honor of President Obama, let’s party,” she shouted during the concert.

And party she did, grabbing a beer from a concert-goer in the audience. Don’t worry, she thanked the innocent bystander after taking a swig.

Ke$ha also donned a red, white, and blue outfit in spirit of the Inauguration. She even bedazzled the back of her blazer spelling out “U$A”, using her trademark dollar sign instead of an ‘s.’ She also coordinated with her male background dancers, who were wearing patriotic swag in matching American flag crop tops.

“I’m very proud to be an American tonight. I’m excited we have another four years,” Ke$ha told The Huffington Post after the show, which took place at on of D.C.’s hottest dance clubs.

First Lady Michelle Obama shouldn’t be too concerned that the pop star publicly confessed her love to Mr. Obama. Ke$ha also gushed over the First Lady.

“She’s beautiful. She’s so chic,” she told HuffPo. “Her outfit, the purple gloves, the bangs. She’s a very classy woman.”

That’s high praise coming from the same person who sings about brushing her teeth with a bottle of jack.
