Granted, the ‘Jesus Walks’ beat is exactly the way you hear it or [if] it’s amplified to other sounds — I recorded this song and ‘Jesus Walks’ was on my demo. Like, how crazy is that?…I played [Former Def Jam A&R] Rodney [Jerkins] a lot of my records, I was at like record number three…he ordered some food and I remember I was sitting there and Rodney fell asleep while I was playing him ‘Jesus Walks.’ Dead a-s…Rodney Jerkins fell asleep while listening to ‘Jesus Walks.’ The beat, f–k what I was saying, the beat…I was 16 and that was on my demo. He fell asleep and I watched ‘Jesus Walks’ come out with a Grammy.” Ouch. Even with a Grammy-winning beat, Berg couldn’t turn heads. [SOHH]

Ke$ha recently issued a warning regarding her new video “We R Who We R.” “This video is a little bit ‘sexy time.’ I’m not gonna lie: It may induce a boner or two,” she revealed. “I’m not sure, [you’ll have to] report back. But I’m hoping for at least one.” Gross. [MTV]
