What a difference two years makes!

At the MTV Video Music Awards in L.A. September 6, Ke$ha debuted a glamorous new makeover on the red carpet. Sporting platinum blonde locks, the 25-year-old singer knocked it out of the park in a nude mini-dress with black floral applique detail.

"I wanted to look naked with some glitz on my bits," Ke$ha said of her flirty frock.

The ensemble was a far cry from her appearance at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, when the "Blow" singer wore a black mini-dress made from a garbage bag.

"I went on a spirit journey. I came back working with the Flaming Lips, working with Iggy Pop, really exploring my rock roots," she explained. "I'm really happy to announce my new single is called 'Dayum' and it's coming out this month."
