Pop newcomer Kesha Rose Sebert, known to most as her stagename “Ke$ha,” performed her hit single “Tik Tok” Thursday night (Mar 4) in Berlin, Germany at the 2010 Echo Awards at Messe Berlin.

We seriously hope none of this performance included any lip-synching though, because in a recent interview, the singer attacked her fellow pop singer Britney Spears for miming in her shows:

“I think that’s bulls***,” she said. “I don’t think that’s fair at all for people who are going to see the show. I think if you are going to be a singer, you should sing. If you are going to be a dancer, you should dance. If you are going to do a combination of the two, you should make it very clear when you are singing and very clear when you are dancing. I would never do that to my fans. No offense to her specifically but people have asked me before to mime. I have been up at three in the morning for a television show with jet lag but I refuse to mime.

“It’s treating people as if they are too stupid to realize you are not actually singing. Sometimes it is hard to sing and dance at the same time but I would rather be off and be real and genuine about it to my fans. I don’t want to treat my fans like they are stupid. That is my take on my fans and life in general. My whole record is super-honest. I am really honest. When I am singing I may sound sh*t sometimes but at least you’ll know I’m singing.”

Wow, tell ’em how you really feel Ke$ha! Check out a few pics of Ke$ha on the red carpet and performing at the 2010 Echo Awards, and continue reading for a video of her “Tik Tok” performance…
