Announcer: At the young age of 23, Ke$ha has recorded a number one album, several top ten singles, and brought record profits to the glitter and whiskey industry, but she wasn’t always the pop star we now know.

Ke$ha: I used to just be Kesha, with an s instead of a dollar sign, and then one year I had my birthday party at Shakey’s Pizza.

Ke$ha: I’m sorry. It’s hard for me to talk about.

Announcer: It’s okay. Go on.

Ke$ha: And, on the sign, the big sign where they write happy birthday, they replaced the s with a dollar sign.

Announcer: And that one word sent her on a downward spiral to success and fame.

Joe Wengert: Yeah, I remember that day. We had a special going on sausage, salami and sun dried tomatoes pizza, so we were just all out of S’s. We’re not made of S’s. We did just get a couple of those, we got backwards R’s. We’ve never had those before. I can’t wait to use them.

Ke$ha: It ruined my life. I wanted to be a CPA, but do you know who H and R Block doesn’t hire? People with dollar signs in their name. I pretty much had to be a pop star.

Announcer: For the last ten years, Ke$ha’s life has been affected by that one fateful birthday at Shakey’s.

Nick Mandernach: Hey, Ke dollar sign ha!

Ke$ha: Souvenir shops never have keychains with my name on it. People think I cost ha dollars and I have to press shift twice when typing my name. All because of a fucking pizza place.

Mike Leffingwel: Unfortunately, there’s nothing she can do. Anything written in print on a Shakey’s Pizza sign is legally binding. It’s in the Constitution.

Ke$ha: I just, I just want my life back.

Announcer: What if I told you that we found that same Shakey’s Pizza and told them it was your birthday.

Ke$ha: Really? Do you mean?

Announcer: That’s right. You’re nightmare is over. Come on. There’s a car waiting outside.

Ke$ha: The moment I’ve been waiting for.

Joe Wengert: We have an artichoke and anchovy pizza today, so we ran out of A’s. Sorry.

Ke$ha: Fuck you!

Joe Wengert: It’s good, if you want to try some.
