"We R Who We R" as written by Kesha Sebert, Joshua Emanuel Coleman, Jacob Kasher Hindlin, Lukasz Gottwald and Benjamin Levin....
Hot and dangerous
If you're one of us, then roll with us
'Cause we make the hipsters fall in love
When we've got our hot pants on and up
And yes of course we does
We running this town just like a club
And no, you don't wanna mess with us
Got Jesus on my necklace-ace-ace

I've got that glitter on my eyes
Stockings ripped all up the side
Looking sick and sexified
So let's go-o-o (let's go)

Tonight we're going har har-har ha-ha-hard
Just like the world is our our-our our-our-ours
We're tearin' it apart part-part pa-pa-part
You know we're superstars, we are who we are
We're dancing like we're dum dum-dum dum-dum-dumb
Our bodies goin' num num-num num-num-numb
We'll be forever young youn-youn youn-youn-young
You know we're superstars, we are who we are

D.J. turn it up
It's about damn time to live it up
I'm so sick of being so serious
It's making my brain delirious
I'm just talkin' truth
I'm telling you 'bout the shit we do
We're sellin' our clothes, sleepin' in cars
Dressin' it down, hittin' on dudes (hard)

Got that glitter on my eyes
Stockings ripped all up the side
Looking sick and sexified
So let's go-o-o (let's go)

Tonight we're going har har-har ha-ha-hard
Just like the world is our our-our our-our-ours
We're tearin' it apart part-part pa-pa-part
You know we're superstars, we are who we are
We're dancing like we're dum dum-dum dum-dum-dumb
Our bodies go num num-num num-num-numb
We'll be forever young youn-youn youn-youn-young
You know we're superstars, we are who we are

DJ, turn it up-up-up-up-up-up-up
DJ, turn it up-up-up-up-up-up-up
(DJ, turn it up-up-up-up-up-up-up)
DJ, turn it up-up-up-up-up-up-up

Tonight we're going har har-har ha-ha-hard
Just like the world is our our-our our-our-ours
We're tearin' it apart part-part pa-pa-part
You know we're superstars, we are who we are
We're dancing like we're dum dum-dum dum-dum-dumb
Our bodies go num num-num num-num-numb
We'll be forever young youn-youn youn-youn-young
You know we're superstars, we are who we are, ow!

    I know a lot of people who don't like Kesha. But if you like her or hate her she is supporting all the teenages that are gay and get bullied for it everyday, shes telling them to only be themselves. shes a fantastic roll model

    General CommentKesha wrote this song in response to the increasing spike of teen suicides especially about LGBT youth.
    Overall, this song aims to say teenagers should be proud of themselves for who they are.

    First Verse:
    The poem explicitly begins with saying teen suicide is really a "hot and dangerous" issue.
    "If you're one of us, then roll with us" implies that not every teenager is alone and that they should unite. Distinguishing feeling of "us" implies there is a group of people who are different from normal society.
    "We make hipsters fall in love" Hipsters is a symbol of independence, individuality. not conforming to norm, and being one with nature. To make them "fall in love" is to mean we make them proud and inspired. Homosexuality is not a choice, we are born with this gift from nature, and we are making them proud connecting to themselves of their true nature.
    "And we've got hotpants on enough" Pride in their creative qualities and fashion tastes.
    "And yes of course because we're running this town just like a club" {araphrase: we are going to party in this normal society and enjoy our lives. The act of "running this town" suggests they are going to influence or change the normal society thinks.
    "And no, you don't wanna mess with us" Paraphrase: Society and the norm is not going to push us around anymore.
    "Got Jesus on my necklace" Being able to accept their true natures bring them closer to faith and God. Or being it a blasphemous act suggests we shouldn't give a toss what religion says.

    And pretty much the rest of the song focuses on partying hard.

    Repetition of "You know we're superstars, We are who we are!" means they are going to party hard, enjoy life, be proud and feel special, because they know their true selves.

    My OpinionAlright, alright. Pop princess may have said those were what her words meant, but think about it. Why would she want the media to know she's doing shit she's not supposed to be doing. Think of it a little like this.


    Line one: Hot and dangerous
    When rolling on ecstasy you get really hot due to the increase in body temperature. Dangerous = the drug.
    Line two: If you're one of us, then roll with us
    Term when tripping on ecstasy is called "rolling"
    Line three: Cause we make the hipsters fall in love
    When rolling on ecstasy you get the extreme desire to love everyone and anyone. You just want to feel loved.
    Line four: And we've got hot pants on enough, And yes of course because we're running this town just like a club
    Raves AREN'T CLUBS! Clubs are legal, raves get raided out.
    Line five: And no, you don't wanna mess with us, Got Jesus on my necklace
    You don't mess with people on drugs. They just might slip you something.
    Line six: I've got that glitter on my eyes
    Stockings ripped all up the side
    Looking sick and sexy-fied
    So let's go-o-o (Let's go!)
    All about dressing up obviously. When raving you usually wear your sluttiest apparel. And the glitter flashy colors just make you all that much more cool.
    Line seven: Tonight we're going hard
    Best way to party so you're doing it hard style
    Line eight: Just like the world is ours
    We're tearin' it apart
    You know we're superstars
    We are who we are!
    This is all about feeling confident about yourself. When you're rolling you think you are the baddest shit that's ever happened to the world.
    Line nine: We're dancing like we're dumb
    You may think you're hot shit, but the way you dance ain't that pretty and you look retarded from a sober's eyes.
    Line ten: Our bodies go numb
    Side-effect of ecstasy
    Line eleven:
    We'll be forever young
    You know we're superstars
    We are who we are!
    Usually only younger generations do this drug, and you dance like you've never danced before. You're on your feet for hours and you're wondering where it's all coming from.
    Line twelve: DJ turn it up
    It's about damn time to live it up
    I'm so sick of being so serious
    It's making my brain delirious!
    One, at least twenty different DJ's tearing up raves. Rolling on ecstasy you feel better then you've ever felt before. You don't care you're there to have a good time. You don't even care about if you loose your possessions. Just as long as you're having fun.
    Line thirteen: I'm just talkin' truth I'm telling you about the shit we do
    As well as most drugs, you're more likely to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing, but the truth.
    Line fourteen: We're sellin' our clothes, sleepin' in cars
    Dressin' it down, hittin' on dudes (HARD!)
    Like I said you just don't care, and the rest of the song I already explained. Trust me, I love Kesha. I have absolutely nothing against her. That's just how I see the song. If you don't like it, well I don't care. However, it does make sense and you can't even disagree about that.
