The first time I read that, I thought it said $1.63 million and I was all like, cool, that’s a lot to get for writing a song even for Miley Cyrus.
Then I read Ke$ha’s interview in Seventeen magazine where she said about writing Time of Our Lives for Miley, “It was like $1.63 cents for a song I wrote – I think for Miley Cyrus. It was an embarrassingly tiny amount. But I never cashed it and it’s on a bulletin board in my house. Writing for Miley was fun ’cause I think she’s funny. I met her and I liked her vibe, so I was like, ‘OK, I’ll write, like, a party song for a younger crowd.”
Then I realized Ke$ha actually meant one dollar and sixty three cents. That’s when I nodded to myself and said, “$1.63 for a song written by Ke$ha? That makes a lot more sense. All is right with the world”
