All artists have influences. But there's a difference between influence and straight-up imitation. Although we're not taking sides, there's been a lot of chatter around the Internet about "Tik Tok" singer Ke$ha and her supposed similarities to French electro-pop singer and hot indie rock girl Uffie. From the LA Times to tweet comments from hipster celebs like Jeremy Scott and Cobra Snake Queen Cory Kennedy, they all suggest that Ke$ha's been swagger-jacking Uffie in her new tracks.

We got to know Ke$ha this week in her own Complex 7 interview, but we've been feeling Uffie since she started popping up on the blogs in '06. We can see the similarities—both blonde party chicks, both use a heavy dose of hip-hop slang, and both pepper auto-tune and club-banging synths throughout their music. Before it turns into another full-fledged mainstream feud, we wanted to evaluate each girl in a series of head-to-head battles to decide once and for all, who's the electro-pop-princess-of-the-moment, Ke$ha or Uffie? Cast your vote below...

MUSIC
UFFIE: The Paris-based singer's been in the game since 2006, the year she recorded her underground hit "Pop the Glock." After 3 years, she recently dropped a video for the song, which created even more confusion about who originated the vocal style. Truth is, Uffie recorded "The Party" (listen here) with Justice in the same cheeky way in '07, the song that loyal Uffie fans and friends claim Ke$ha allegedly swag-jacked.

KE$HA: It's no doubt that Ke$ha's strong, catchy vocals, reminiscent of Uffie or not, made "Tik Tok" a succes. But on the music side, her beats (created by Dr. Luke) veer more towards the over-produced sounds of Lady Gaga and Sean Kingston than the creative blips we hear from Uffie's Ed Banger beatmakers.

ADVANTAGE: UFFIE

DANCING

DANCING
UFFIE: It's safe to say that the girl isn't exactly the dancing type. Rather, she's the drunken-swaying, stage-diving type. We give her some brownie points for her raging abilities.

KE$HA: To be fair, it looks like the new girl's putting an effort into some moves, just check out her minute of choreography. We've seen worse!

ADVANTAGE: KE$HA

sexappeal

SEX APPEAL
UFFIE: Even if pasty hipsters aren't your type, Uffie is the party girl who can get completely trashed yet still look as cute as the girl next door. She's like a girl you met at Santos on Friday night who's capable of cleaning up for dinner with the parents on Saturday night.

KE$HA: Ke$ha is a guy's-best-friend kind of girl, meaning she's could probably drink us under the table, but is that sexy? Everyone loves a fun chick, but she kind of looks like the type of messy girl who would puke in your mouth if you caught her on a bad day. Also, the X-Tina circa "Dirrrty" hair needs to go. Shampoo.

ADVANTAGE: UFFIE

poppotential

POP POTENTIAL
UFFIE: The girl's been in the game for years and hasn't broken out in the U.S., though you'd probably disagree if you've frequented LA or NYC clubs in the past three years (not to mention Europe). But with her debut album Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans finally coming out next month, maybe this will finally be her time to shine.

KE$HA: Ke$ha started off the new decade as THE popstar, landing 2010's first #1 single and setting a new record for the most downloaded single by a female artist ever. And anyone who gets the privilege of ruffling through Conan's hair is a winner as far as we're concerned.

ADVANTAGE: KE$HA
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


COLLABORATIONS
Uffie: Regardless of mainstream radio play, Uffie's collabos have been spinning in clubs for over three years. In her interview with Pedestrian TV, she talks about performing with Pharrell and her low-key record label Ed Banger records. Since the beginning of her career, she's worked with fellow label mates Justice, Mr. Oizo, and DJ Feadz as well as performed with Amanda Blank and BFF DJ Steve Aoki. Good company to keep.

KE$HA: You've heard her on Flo-Rida's "Right Round" and you've heard Diddy's voice on the opening of her hit "Tik Tok," but did you know she also writes songs for other artists? Babygirl co-wrote the song "This Love" for Australian-duo The Veronicas, "The Time of Our Lives" for Miley Cyrus, and recently, a song for Rihanna. Ms. Sebert also kept herself even busier by touring the U.S. with "My Dick" singer, Mickey Avalon.

ADVANTAGE: UFFIE
