WASHINGTON (AP) — Ke$ha is an all-American girl — or at least she was following Inauguration Day at a concert Monday night.
The pop singer sported a bright red suit, blue shoes and a white shirt on the red carpet ahead of her performance at the 9:30 Club. The back of her suit read: "U$A."
"I'm very proud to be an American tonight. I'm excited we have another four years," she said in an interview.
The 25-year-old said she was moved by President Barack Obama's speech at the Capitol launching his second term in office.
"I really appreciate him addressing equal rights," said Ke$ha, who is a supporter of gay rights. "It's an issue very close to my heart."
The patriotic vibe continued when she hit the stage just after midnight, where her four male background dancers wore cropped shirts bearing an image of the American flag.
She no longer had on a suit, now wearing a shimmery black and silver leotard as she danced to her pop hits like "TiK ToK," ''We R Who We R" and "Die Young."
"Our president rules. In honor of President Obama, let's party," she said before performing another hit, the jam "Blow."
