    Remember when "TiK ToK" was just a song?

    SURELY you remember the 2009 hit song “TiK ToK” by Kesha.


    The song was her debut single and topped the charts for, like, ~ages~.

    Indeed — there was once a time when "TiK ToK" was just a song and not an app! It was basically a party anthem that had lots of unforgettable lyrics. Exhibit A:


    Well, yesterday Kesha took every millennial back to high school when she uploaded this TikTok video featuring a makeover inspired by the song.

    So, when Kesha posted her video, fans had plenty of funny comments about her familiar look.

    First, there's the makeup. The edgy smudged eyeliner.


    Avril Lavigne who???

    Next, the hair flip. Perfect for those messy, rock star tresses.

    And finally, the pose. Staring into the camera, hands open, ready to blow glitter right into your face.

    And voilà — the finished product! OK, queen! Identical!

    Kesha, meet Ke$ha.

    Hey, it may be 2020, and Kesha may no longer style her name with a dollar sign, and she may also be rocking dark hair now, but I've been hit with a wave of nostalgia!!!


    So, Kesha, thanks for bringing us back to the old days and for re-creating "TiK ToK" on TikTok. Very meta.
