Details Release Date: Nov 22, 2010; Lead Performance: Kesha; Genre: Pop

Lest fans worry that current self-acceptance smash ''We R Who We R'' has turned her soft, Cannibal, the swift follow-up to her massive debut, Animal, is no retreat. Her herky-jerky rhymes still sound like they came from the bathroom wall of a reform-school kindergarten, and the beats are as el cheapo electro as ever. Indeed, when she starts rhyming ''famous'' with a back-end body part (on the title track) and mocking a sensitive dude’s ''mangina'' (on the taunting ''Grow a Pear''), Cannibal does have a sulfurous end-of-days whiff about it. As Armageddon parties go, though, this one should leave plenty of sweat and confetti on the dance floor. B+
