Kesha “Ke$ha” Sebert spoke with The Dallas Morning News about her image, paying homage to country music with her songs and whether her Get Sleazy tour is about a dance party where concertgoers can throw their inhibitions out the window. “It sums up a lot of what I stand for and what I am,” the 24-year-old said. “I just want people to be crazy. I want people to be able to come to my show and be complete idiots, be yourself, have fun. I don’t care. Hopefully I am providing them that outlet for two hours.”
Kesha Is A Little Bit Jaguar, A Little Bit Narwhal
Kesha “Ke$ha” sat down with Nova FM while in Australia recently, where the American pop singer talked about her reputation as a wild child, getting in the headlines, name dropping Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs on her debut single ‘Tik Tok’, and why she named her first LP ‘Animal’.
On the wild child label, she said, “Cool. Whatever. I’m a bit wild and I’ll own up to that.”
Talking about getting in the headlines and if she’s trying to stay away from that, Kesha joked, “It’s not working. I’m not trying to cause any controversy. I’m not like a media whore. I’m just trying to have fun with all of it, with all the media stuff and all the craziness, I’m just trying to have fun. I’m trying to make people have dance parties.”
Questioned about the origin of her waking up like P. Diddy line in ‘Tik Tok’, she said, “That line was written because I woke up surrounded by a bunch of babes, like a bunch of chicks. I was surrounded by a bunch of babes and I was like, ‘You know, who else is probably surrounded by babes? P. Diddy.”
Talking about her album title ‘Animal’, Kesha said, “We’re all animals. It’s not just in me, it’s in everybody. That’s why I named my record ‘Animal’, because I love animals. I like them more than people, so I just want people when they come to my show, to let that animal out. I think I’m a little bit of a jaguar, and a little bit of a narwhal, it’s a unicorn whale.”
