On the cover of the latest V Magazine, sporting an American flag painted on her face and untamed hair, Ke$ha proves she is a wild and patriotic gal.

Inside the magazine, the songstress is draped in a somewhat revealing American flag shirt dress.

The 25-year-old star opens up about everything from wanting to collaborate with Justin Bieber, to avoiding the paparazzi. ”The range of artists I want to work with is so vast it’s bizarre… I would sure as hell like to do a collaboration with Bieber and at the same time do a song with the Flaming Lips,” she reveals.

As for those pesky snappers, Ke$ha says she’s found ways to preserve her privacy: “I have wild, wild nights [in the woods], but my friends and I are all really private. We get f***ing crazy, but you’re not going to see me stumbling out of nightclubs.”
