"We R Who We R" is a song released by Ke$ha. It serves as the opening track on Ke$ha's debut extended play Cannibal.  

BackgroundEdit

Ke$ha explained that she wanted the song to become a pride anthem;

I wanted to inspire people to be themselves. It's a celebration of any sort of quirks or eccentricities. I was really affected by the suicides that have been happening, having been subject to very public hatred myself. I have absolutely no idea how these kids felt. What I'm going through is nothing compared to what they had to go through. Just know things do get better and you need to celebrate who you are. Every weird thing about you is beautiful and makes life interesting. Hopefully the song really captures that emotion of celebrating who you are. I just felt like people hate because they don't understand or they're jealous. It's all coming from a very negative place and I really feel like people don't need to pay attention to that.

Ke$ha explained to Spin magazine why she wrote this song: "Young people need a role model to tell them they're beautiful exactly the way they are and that they don't have to be apologetic about themselves," she said. "So I wanted to write a super-positive anthem."[2]

LyricsEdit

Hot and dangerous
If you're one of us than roll with us
'Cause we make the hipsters fall in love
When we got our hot-pants on and up

And yes of course we does
We runnin' this town just like a club
And no you don't want to mess with us
Got Jesus on my necklace

Got that glitter on my eyes
Stockings ripped all up the side
Looking sick and sexyfied
So let's go, let's go

Tonight we're going hard
Just like the world is ours
We're tearin' it apart
You know we're superstars
We are who we are

We're dancing like we're dumb
Our bodies go numb
We'll be forever young
You know we're superstars
We are who we are

DJ turn it up
It's about damn time to live it up
I'm so sick of bein' so serious
It's makin' my brain delirious

I'm just talkin' truth
I'm tellin' 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 sexyfied
So let's go, let's go

Tonight we're going hard
Just like the world is ours
We're tearin' it apart
You know we're superstars
We are who we are

We're dancing like we're dumb
Our bodies go numb
We'll be forever young
You know we're superstars
We are who we are

DJ turn it up
DJ turn it up
DJ turn it up
DJ turn it up

Tonight we're going hard
Just like the world is ours
We're tearin' it apart
You know we're superstars
We are who we are

We're dancing like we're dumb
Our bodies go numb
We'll be forever young
You know we're superstars
We are who we are
