Ke$ha covers the latest issue of Billboard magazine and celebrates her double victory in style. The 23-year-old pop star was named the magazine’s Hot 100 Artist of the Year, as well as Top New Artist!

According to Billboard,

As far as new artists go, 2010 more or less belonged to this 23-year-old Nashville native, who released her hit debut, “Animal,” in January, then followed it up last month with a nine-track mini-album, “Cannibal.” With three songs on Billboard’s year-end Hot 100, and 1.1 million copies sold of “Animal,” according to Nielsen SoundScan, Ke$ha is the Hot 100 artist of the year, as well as the top new artist.

Congratulations, Ke$ha! Now the world knows that TiK ToK is not just a passive moment of euphoria. It’s here to stay! All the best to you. Check out Billboard.com for a champagne-filled picture gallery and hit the jump for the behind-the-scenes video of the covershoot.

During the week ending December 27, 2009, “Tik Tok” garnered 610,000 downloads, which is just behind the 636,000 number posted for another Ke$ha vocal track, “Right Round” by Flo Rida. Ke$ha smashes the record for highest weekly sum by a female artist, previously held by Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” (419,000 downloads).
