Ke$ha's Urine-Drinking Stunt Pissed Off the Parents Television Council

We don't know why, but apparently there are some people out there who are not interested in seeing Ke$ha drink her own urine. I know!

The Parents Television Council, an organization whose mission is to "promote and restore responsibility and decency to the entertainment industry," took issue with Ke$ha's pee-sipping moment on her MTV docu-series, Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life. PTC issued a letter to its members warning them about the "disgusting, vile content" on Ke$ha's show. (Check out a preview of that vile content here.)

PTC is also throwing some shade on the major cable companies, because, why not? "Why should we have to pay for this kind of garbage just so we can get access to Discovery, Disney or the Golf channel? It's outrageous—and it shouldn't be that way," reads the letter. "Consumers deserve choice. We should all have the ability to choose and pay for only the channels we want to watch… but the cable industry won't let that happen without a fight."

Meanwhile, Ke$ha's probably off somewhere trying to sleep with Justin Bieber and all like, "OMG you guys, relax." Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter earlier this year about her swig o' urine, the "Crazy Kids" singer said, "I heard it was good for you. That was, like, the rumor. But I don't know. I'm also just one that doesn't shy away from things. I'm not good at saying 'no' so I just figure, f-ck it, I'll try anything once. So I tried it." But despite what you would think, she didn't like it. "I wouldn't recommend it. It was pretty gross."

So... PTC 1, Ke$ha 0? Actually, there are no winners in this story.
