"I was really affected by the suicides that have been happening, having been subject to very public hatred myself. I have absolutely no idea how these kids felt. What I'm going through is nothing compared to what they had to go through. Just know things do get better and you need to celebrate who you are. Every weird thing about you is beautiful and makes life interesting. Hopefully the song really captures that emotion of celebrating who you are." - Kesha
"Young people need a role model to tell them they're beautiful exactly the way they are and that they don't have to be apologetic about themselves. So I wanted to write a super-positive anthem. I wanted to inspire people, to be themselves. It's a celebration of any sort of quirks or eccentricities." - Kesha
