celebs who play dumb but are really smart

We live in a world where we know every superficial thing about our favorite celebrities; what they eat, who they date, what they wear.

Lets be honest, on the outside Kesha is just a hot mess. The singer and performer is known for her out-of-the-box thinking and unique music.

Kesha actually has an IQ of 140 and claimed to have scored nearly perfect on her SATs with 1500. Before Kesha found fame, she was offered a scholarship to a well-known and prestigious university to study psychology. However, Kesha was not ready to live a cookie cutter life. Instead she dropped out of high school at 17 to follow her dreams of fame and it has paid off dramatically for her.
