Did pop singer Ke$ha vandalize the Hollywood sign?
A video has been floating around the internet of pop singer Ke$ha and her friends drunkenly hiking up to the iconic Hollywood sign, throwing tarps over it and spray painting it to read Ke$hawood. But guess what! It’s a total fake.
According to a Perezhilton.com post “the GeneralService Officers who watch and protect the Sign 24 -7, have confirmed that nothing has happened to the Sign. By reviewing the footage, they noticed that the Sign is flat where as the actual Sign is made of corrugated steel. Also, the angle which the girls take off from the Sign is a 40 degree drop which would be impossible to run on, especially in heels.”
Access to the Hollywood sign is illegal. It is meant to be seen from a distance, and is supposed to represent the dreams of people who come to this fair city. Ke$ha obviously wanted to cheapen this image. Maybe she’ll end up being a one-hit wonder. If not, I hope she learns to treat dreams with more respect. (And maybe she’ll drop the pretentious $ from her name.)
