Ke$ha becomes NBA fan after Westbrook sings tune

Ke$ha didn't pay much attention to the NBA until recently when she realized she had a fan in the league.

The pop star was shown a video of Oklahoma City All-Star Russell Westbrook singing along to her hit Die Young before a recent game against the Mavericks.

"It was the cutest, hottest thing ever to see a basketball player doing that to my song," Ke$ha said.

Told that Westbrook is known as one of the NBA's most fashionable players because of his unique ensembles, Ke$ha wasn't surprised.

"I'm sure he is, if he likes my music then he must have good taste," she said with a giggle.

Westbrook isn't the only NBA player who has taken a liking to Ke$ha's tunes. She's also been alerted to other video clips of ballers enjoying her work.

"Lots of basketball players like to dance around to my songs, so it's made me more and more of a fan," she said.

Ke$ha, who has an upcoming documentary miniseries on MTV called Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life, headlined a pregame concert at Sunday night's All-Star game.

"It's really exciting because it was made by just me and my brother and one of my brother's friends and we traveled around the world together," she said of the documentary. "It was very guerrilla style, do-it-yourself capturing everything that you could imagine or not want to see about my life. The documentary is so much more intimate than people would expect it to be."
