On the surface, Ke$ha's wake up in the morning feeling like P Diddy lyrics are a bit confusing. Outside of a career in music and a name change, it's hard to see what the two have in common. P. Diddy, or whatever he is calling himself this week, is a large black man whose enterprises have run from performing to producing to acting and clothing design. Ke$ha, on the other hand, is a dimunitive 22-year-old blonde with an unshakeable belief that glitter is adequate replacement for showering. As it turns out, the "wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy" lyrics in the song "Tik Tok" come, as many of Ke$sha's lyrics do, from her personal experiences partying.
At the time the song was written, Ke$ha was living in the house in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles where The Eagles recorded their hit album "Hotel California." She has a large number of roommates, and many other people would often sleep over and crash on the couches in the living room.
One morning after a late night of drinking, Ke$ha woke up in her livingroom surrounded by ten model-beautiful women. She joked that it was better than most men ever get, and hence, made her feel like P. Diddy. She wrote the line down, and incorporated it in her first single, "Tik Tok," which would go platinum five times over. Interestingly, the line was written long before there was any plan for P. Diddy to add a contribution to the song "Tik Tok." (He speaks the lines "What up, girl?" and "Let's go.") P. Diddy called her producer the same day she dropped the song off because he was interested in a collaboration with Ke$ha. It really is the sort of thing that can make a girl wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy. It remains a mystery, however, why that or anything else, would induce someone to brush with Jack Daniels or only seek out romantic partners who resemble Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.
