Great questions. And yes, her fans are like her 2nd family.
The 2nd day of filming, she gets on her tour bus and her assistant hands her a MASSIVE box of fan mail. She then opens EACH one, reads it, signs whatever memorabilia was included, and sometimes hand writes a note back.
She meets with fans at EVERY tour stop. In one case, a kid in England handed her a book he'd put together. He was shy and couldn't say much beyond "Please read the letter I put in there." She read it. It was about him being bullied in school and hitting rock bottom with depression. And then her song "Animal" came on the radio and he suddenly felt a bit hopeful and pulled himself together. The note ended "You saved my life Kesha". They both broke down in tears and embraced. To this day, she calls or texts him every once in a while to see how he's doing.

First night of filming her: "Just don't film me taking a dump. Everything else is cool."
And she basically held true to that.

The first night I met her was the night of her NYC show back in spring 2011. After the show, which she finished near dead exhausted, she went to 2 after parties and partied like I'd never seen anyone before. Like a fucking rockstar. Making out with dudes, jumping around like a wild child, and drinking from bottles. Like a massive bottle of Patron, to herself, all gone. Then she went to another party. By the time it was over, the sun was rising. Probably the craziest party was in Las Vegas. Another "til the sunrise" party. The sun was coming up and she wanted to 1) Get a tattoo and 2) Get married to one of her friends by a guy dressed as Elvis. Luckily none of the above never happened.
Ok, all that said, she's grown up a lot lately. She still parties, sure, but she takes her work very seriously. She's a massive perfectionist and she's learning the perfect balance between party hard and work hard. Of which she does both.
EDIT: Everything I said above is on film and in the documentary BTW
EDIT #2: I just remembered this too: After a FULL night of partying, she and like 20 friends go back to her hotel suite and they download EVERY song either ABOUT pussy or with pussy in the title. They then rocked out until mid-morning listening to only pussy songs.

Like I said above, there is "Ke$ha" and then there's "Kesha".
"Ke$ha" is a wandering misfit, half drunk, half crazy, stumbling over hill and dale for the next party.
"Kesha" is sharp as a tack. Plays multiple instruments. Reads constantly. Writes constantly (I literally saw at least 300 full notebooks). And she knows EVERYTHING about her production. I often would see her on ProTools mixing a new audio cue, or designing new stage props herself. She designed a massive 12 foot glitter cannon for her live show.

Kesha once got frustrated while trying to learn a new dance routine and told me to leave the room. I kept recording and didn't leave. So she ran up with the speed of a puma and punched me. I kind of understood her frustration though. Having cameras in my face 24/7 would probably piss me off sometimes too. But, other than that punch, not much physical interaction.
EDIT: The footage of her punching me is probably gonna end up in the documentary so spoiler alert.
