Ke$ha 'knew about sex before age 7'

Ke$ha has revealed her mother was keen for her to know about the facts of life so taught her about sex at a young age.

In an interview with The Times, the singer claimed she was responsible for herself just a year after entering her teens.

The star explained how she was left at home at age 14 "with a credit card, and a box of condoms and the keys to the car".

Ke$ha described her mother's parting words as: "Don't get pregnant and don't drink and drive."

However, the 23-year-old may have expected such behaviour from her mum after she told her "everything about sex" before she turned seven.

The performer went on to defend her raunchy shows, telling the publication that she was "upfront" about who she is.

Ke$ha quit high school when she was 17 in order to return to Los Angeles and pursue her passion for music.
