Ke$ha Says Andrew W.K.'s Tattoo Infection Is Not Her Fault

October 6th, 2011 8:31am EDT
Ke$ha has apologized to rocker pal Andrew W.K. after her attempt to tattoo him resulted in an infection.

The pop star recently invited Ke$ha to try out her skin art skills on him, but he was left requiring medical attention when the ink effort turned bad.

He told, "It got infected. It's an unfortunate aftermath and my body ended up rejecting the ink and I had to go to the doctor. But it actually left a nice scar which was, in fact, cooler than the tattoo that's in the exact shape of the tattoo."

What follows is an odd eclectic mix of tunes - from Carl's big hair rock to Master Shake's collection of tunes about promiscuous women.

If you go to jail, why stay there? Get some friends with guns and dynamite to get you out.

Mr. Roboto - Styx
