Pop star Ke$ha is Seventeen magazine’s February cover girl, wherein she discusses being attracted to both men and women and anti-LGBT bullying.

"I don’t love just men. I love people. It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with,” she said. Ke$ha previously talked about her relationships with both sexes in a 2010 interview with Out, "I like people. I wouldn't say I'm gay or straight - I don't like labeling things anyway. I just like people."

Ke$ha also speaks out about her stance against anti-LGBT bullying. "I'm all about standing up to gay/lesbian/transgender bullying, but it’s also about my little brother. He's 13 and he gets made fun of because he has a stutter. I just have zero tolerance for people making fun of others."

"Ke$ha's comments not only serve to inspire and support young people who may be struggling to come out, they also echo the support of a generation that overwhelmingly agrees that every person should be able to love openly and honestly," GLAAD spokesperson Seth Adam told MTV Act Blog.

Seventeen magazine has also stood up against anti-LGBT bullying. Spirit Day founder Brittany McMillan was a finalist in the magazine’s ‘Pretty Amazing’ scholarship contestSeventeen’s social media presence went purple for Spirit Day and Editor-in-Chief Ann Shoket wrote a blog post encouraging readers to go take a stand against bullying and support LGBT youth.
