Thanks to a YouTube mashup of “Tik Tok” and Star Trek originally posted in April, we can now confirm that the beloved sci-fi franchise was what inspired the wise and poignant lyrics of a pop star with a dollar sign for a name. (The Willy Wonka line “I have a blueberry for a daughter!” just popped into my head. We have a dollar sign for a pop star!) She and the Star Trek guys face the same issues every day! Drinking, dressing oneself, the faint promise that one might never come back. It’s just that “feeling like P-Diddy” ended up being more relatable to 12-year-olds than “feeling like the crew of Federation Starship Enterprise. Whatever, Ke$ha.

My favorite part is William Shatner’s s—-eating grin at 2:11. It’s kind of like the “Bitch, what?” face Ke$ha threw her mom after she dropped her pancakes.

Does dollar sign annoy you a little less now?
