Pop star Ke$ha shocked fans at a show in Australia at the weekend by drinking what appeared to be blood from an animal heart. The "TiK ToK" hitmaker took to the stage to headline the Future Music Festival at Sydney's Royal Randwick Racecourse, but gig-goers were in for a surprise when the concert got messy during a rendition of her track "Cannibal".

Ke$ha pulled out what looked like a real animal heart and drank a red substance, which dripped down her face and splattered across her t-shirt. Daily Telegraph reported the singer, who was covered in glitter and draped in a shredded American flag T-shirt, performed much of her 45-minute set dripping in blood.

March 15, 2011 01:35:26 GMT


Walt Disney Pictures has just debuted a new poster for "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" that gives another spotlight to Jack Sparrow.

The one-sheet, presented in dusty color scheme, also features a skull, some mermaids, and a burning ship on the background.

In the fourth "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie, Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past, Angelica, and he's not sure if it's love or if she's a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard, Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
