MTV VMAs 2012: 15 Best and Worst Dressed
BEST - KE$HA

Usually a wild child, Ke$ha classed it up for the VMAs with a short, nude dress complimented by black floral appliques. She reportedly designed the look for herself, with the help of Ugo Zaldi. Her platinum blonde combover hairstyle added to the look, which was spunky and stylish in all the right ways.

Music is not the only way for Ke$ha to tell a story.

The singer-songwriter has signed with Touchstone for the illustrated memoir "My Crazy Beautiful Life."

It's scheduled to come out Nov. 20, shortly before her new album, "Warrior." According to Touchstone, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, the book will feature Ke$ha's "thoughts and reflections" and pictures spanning from her childhood to her recent tour.

"In less than three years I've gone from being the worst waitress in LA to living out my childhood dreams of singing my songs to people all over the world," Ke$ha said in a statement. "Sometimes, it feels as if the last few years have encompassed a few decades. You might have heard my voice on the radio, seen me onstage and on the red carpet, or in a music video, but that's only a part of the story. In these pages, I'm revealing a more complete picture of what my life is really like. It's not all glamorous and it's not all pretty, but it's all real."

The 25-year-old star is known for such hits as "TiK ToK," ''Your Love Is My Drug," ''We R Who We R" and "Die Young." The latter single, which previews "Warrior," debuted at No. 13 on last week's Hot 100.
