Kesha Talks Halloween, Stalking Keith Richards & Tattoo Advice

Kesha 'Ke$ha' Sebert shows off her nose ring and talks about getting dressed up as a fern for Halloween and making sure someone tattooing you has a tattoo gun

Virgin Red Room posed questions from their Twitter followers to Kesha “Ke$ha” Sebert recently, where the American pop singer talked about Halloween, plans to tour in the UK in support of her second album ‘Warrior’, getting to record with some of her favorite artists on the project, advice she’d have for someone wanting to get a tattoo, and some things she loves.

“I love Halloween so much. It’s my favorite. I think I’m gonna be Dog the Bounty Hunter. I don’t know if you know who that is, but it’s a man who has a mullet and is awesome. My favorite Halloween memory is probably when I dressed like a fern and I just duct taped live plants all over my body, so you didn’t even see me. I was at some party and my parts kept falling off. It was really awkward. Then I got drunk and it was fine.”

Kesha 'Ke$ha' Sebert, seen here with a nosering, talks about Halloween, working with her idols on 'Warrior' and advising a fan not to get a Chinese symbol tattoo right above their backsideTalking about UK tour plans, she said, “Right now I’m in the process of just finishing my record. It’s not even done yet, secretly. I have to finish mixing it. Then once that’s all done, I can’t wait to get back onstage. Probably early next year I’ll be back touring.”

“Recording ‘Warrior’ was really fun. Getting to work with my idols like Iggy Pop and Julian Casablancas, the Flaming Lips and Patrick from the Black Keys. That was definitely the perk the second time around, people would give me the time of day. Right now I’m in the process of stalking Keith Richards, and I will continue until the day I die.”

Giving a questioner tattoo advice, Kesha said, “My advice to you would be, make sure the person that is tattooing you has a tattoo gun, he’s not just doing it with a sewing needle and ink pen. I’ve learned this the hard way. A tattoo is like a scar, so make sure you get it on a good, fun day that you want to remember forever, and don’t get a Chinese symbol right above your butt crack. Just don’t do it.”

Kesha “Ke$ha” Sebert recently visited You FM in Germany while promoting her latest album ‘Warrior’. The American pop singer talked about partying, her special trip between albums, what is a baby party for her, and what she’d do if the world were to end tomorrow.

On how important partying is to her, she said, “I like to think of my life as a party. I kind of party for a living. That’s what I do.”

Discussing her “very special trip”, Kesha said, “I went off by myself and lived on a boat and went camping for awhile and was helping to rehabilitate baby lions and swimming with whales and sharks, just getting in touch with animals. I love animals so much, genuinely I love them so much, it’s crazy.”

Asked what’s a “baby party” for Kesha, she said, “Just a little vodka… And friends. We snuck into the pool and got kicked out and…” Reminded she’s supposed to be a star, Kesha said, “Yeah I know, but they didn’t care. I still get kicked out of places all of the time. It doesn’t matter.”

Kesha Takes Partying To Almost A Deeper Level On ‘Die Young’

Kesha 'Ke$ha' Sebert blows glitter

Kesha ‘Ke$ha’ Sebert has a clip introducing her single ‘Die Young’, the first taken from the American pop singer’s latest album ‘Warrior’. “I’m really, really happy with this song,” Kesha says in the brief video. “I wrote it with this guy named Nate, he’s in a band called fun., and it’s really a celebration of life everyday. I feel like I’m known for writing party anthems, because I’m really good at partying. This one takes partying to almost a deeper level, how you should party and live your life as a celebration as if it were the last night of your life. If it was the last night in the world, I would probably take (my cat) Mr. Peeps, to 7-11. I’d probably drink a 40, sit there and party with my cat until the world ended.”

Kesha Prefers To Be Liked Or Hated For Her Own Ideas

Kesha “Ke$ha” Serbert sat down with Entertainment Focus to promote her new single ‘Die Young’ and her forthcoming album ‘Warrior’. Kesha talked about the lead single, the intention she had with the album, why she named the new album ‘Warrior’, being involved with “everything” creatively on the LP, what she wants fans to experience attending her concerts, what she feels about the reception she gets from UK audiences, her stripped down EP ‘Deconstructed’, and more.

“Die young is my philosophy in life,” Kesha said of the album’s lead single. “It’s to live everyday to the fullest, and never take anything for granted, and to remain young and immature at heart always.”

As for that track being a party song and if that was her intention, Kesha responded, “I mean it’s my intention in general with everything. I think I’ve been coined the party girl, which is appropriate, because I’m really good at that, but with this record I wanted the essence of the record to be just magical. I wanted it to be about all the magical parts of life. There are the let’s get wasted and dance all night until the sun comes up songs, and there’s songs also about ghosts, past lives, and all sorts of more hippie supernatural sh**. I want to write about getting fu**ed up, but also other stuff.”

On her creative involvement with ‘Warrior’, Kesha said her input was on “everything” with the album. “That’s the thing. There’s people who like me, and they like me for all of my weird ideas, and if they hate me, it’s for all of my weird ideas. It’s not contrived by somebody else, which I would prefer it that way. People like me for me, or they hate me for me and not for anyone else’s ideas. I always wanted to before the record was even close to done, I wanted this record to be called ‘Warrior’. I wanted to look like this intergalactic hippie, cult leading warrior goddess, and I was hoping that’s what the cover looks like.”

As for what she wants fans to experience from her live shows, Kesha said, “I want it to be the best night of your life. I just want to help orchestrate that. When I was younger, I would have certain bands that I knew they were coming through town, so I’d mark it off on my calendar. I would get my outfit ready. I would get my friends together. I would get the booze and put it in the water bottle and hide it in my purse, and just be ready to have a balls out best night ever, and I want my show to be that for lots of people.”

Kesha: I Really Can Sing

Kesha “Ke$ha” Sebert stopped by The Ralphie Show on 95.5 WPLJ in New York City recently, talking about how she was the first white woman to appear solo on the cover of Vibe magazine, the mixture of genres on her new album ‘Warrior’, as taking on critics who think she can’t sing with her ‘Deconstructed’ EP.

“It is shocking, but also massively flattering,” Kesha said of the Vibe cover. “On this record especially, I worked with so many different genres of music from Iggy Pop to Flaming Lips and The Strokes and The Black Keys and then and Nate from fun. and there’s so many different genres of music represented, I feel with that laundry list of people and I think the Vibe cover just reinstates that there are no boundaries, especially with genre boundaries in music, there aren’t any anymore.”

As for the idea of an over-saturation of remixing and Autotuning of music, Kesha said, “For me and my musical journey, I kind of wanted to bring in some elements of rock n’ roll. I brought in more guitar and a lot of feedback and I lost Autotune, and I tried to keep the vocal trickery to a minimum, because I kind of feel like mixing a little bit of organic with that super perfect electronic drum sound. That was kind of in my mind where I wanted my music to go. For me, I loved dancing and I loved four-to-the-floor, but I also love the rawness of real instruments and guitar that’s feeding back and is imperfect.”

Kesha then commented on those that still can’t think she can sing and requires Autotune, stating, “I was like, it’s really irritating when you can do one of three things in your entire life, and everyone is like, ‘You can’t sing’, and I’m like, ‘Really?’ Fine. I’m gonna sing, a lot, so you can’t talk about how I can’t sing, because I really can sing.”

Kesha Explains The “Suck It” Tattoo In Her Mouth

Kesha 'Ke$ha' Sebert, seen here in a Harley t-shirt, talked with London's Kiss FM about why she named her album 'Warrior' and the 'suck it' tattoo

Kesha “Ke$ha” Serbert visited Kiss FM in London recently, talking to Rickie, Melvin & Charlie about her new album ‘Warrior’, guilty pleasures, costumes she has worn on Halloween, and some of her tattoos.

On what the new album title ‘Warrior’ came from, Kesha said, “That actually was inspired by my fans, by my animals. I went on tour for like two and a half years and I met so many of my fans around the world and they kept telling me how my music got them through something, whether it was a breakup, or a workout, or being bullied or harassed. I have a lot of gay and lesbian fans who were being just harassed for their sexuality, and I myself have gotten completely dogged online, plenty, but I empathize with people that get like terrorized for just being themselves, so I thought instead of being a victim, I’m a warrior. I stand up to it and I don’t want people changing me. I’m hoping that the term warrior and the title warrior would inspire my fans to become warriors.”

Explaining the “suck it” tattoo on the inside of her lip, Kesha said, “The mouth tattoo, although you’re being a pervert, and I know exactly what you’re thinking, was purely because I was thinking about people that, hater’s gonna hate, you know what I mean? So they can all just suck it.” The singer added that when getting that particular tattoo, she was “drooling blood. It was gross.”

Kesha Discusses Mentoring Young Singers & Her Itchy Tongue

Kesha 'Ke$ha' Sebert, seen here wearing studs, talked with 90.9 Sea FM about mentoring reality show contestants, getting an itchy tongue before going performing and her favorite 'Warrior' songs

Galey, Baggs & Charli of the Gold Coast’s 90.9 Sea FM spoke with Kesha “Ke$ha” Sebert during the singer’s promo trip in Australia recently. Kesha discussed her desire to live in Australia, music she’s listening to lately, getting nerves performing on TV shows, helping young contestants on reality television shows, her favorite songs off ‘Warrior’, teaming up with Iggy Pop on ‘Dirty Love’ and ended up with a rapid fire Q&A.

“I do get nervous but the second I hit the stage, I just get really excited. It’s weird. I get this crazy, nervous energy and then my tongue starts to itch really bad. That’s when I’m really nervous, the back of my tongue starts itching. Then once I hit the stage it’s just *bleep*.”

As for chances to help other artists going on singing competition TV shows, Kesha said, “It’s just amazing to be able to help other girls or boys try to realize their dreams. I’ve been in that position when I was younger and a lot of these kids are really young like a 14-year-old, I think her name is Cheyenne, but I wish someone would have helped me when I was fourteen, I was just clueless, so I take it really seriously. It’s amazing to try and help somebody and give them a little bit of guidance to help them realize their dreams.”

Asked about her favorite track on her new album ‘Warrior’, Kesha said, “I have a lot. I’ve been working on this record for like a year, so they’re all like my babies, but there’s one song ‘Love Into the Light’, which is kind of my song which is about how we should all love one another and accept each other for our imperfections. There’s another song called ‘Dirty Love’ that I did with Iggy Pop that’s all about sex, so there’s the sentimental song, ‘Love Into the Light’, really special, and then there’s ‘Dirty Love’, that’s just wild.”

Asked about Iggy Pop, Kesha enthused, “He’s just the coolest human on the planet. He looks so cool. I came into the studio and he just did not have a shirt on, and I was so happy. I couldn’t wipe a smile off my face. He’s so epic.”

Kesha On Songwriting, Stalking Iggy Pop & ‘Warrior’

Kesha, seen here wearing dinosaur sunglasses, talks about her second album 'Animal', its lead single 'Die Young', working with Iggy Pop on 'Dirty Love' and her songwriting process

Kesha “Ke$ha” Sebert joined Kylie Speer on a hotel room bed to talk about her second album ‘Warrior’, what she did since releasing her debut ‘Animal’, working with Iggy Pop on the project, wanting to bring some guitar and rock music into her pop sound, the message behind her latest single ‘Die Young’, the song’s accompanying music video, and more.

On her time off between albums, the pop singer explained, “I went on a bit of a spiritual journey because I had been on tour for like 2 1/2 years. When you’re on tour, you’re surrounded by so many people all the time, so I wanted to just go off by myself for a minute. I just went off for a little over a month, and then I had people really up my ass to get back in the studio. So then I got back in the studio and have been ever since for the past nine months.”

As for her songwriting process, Kesha said, “I’m always writing. I’ll write even in my sleep. I’ll write things on my hand and wake up and say what in the hell did that even mean? I’m always constantly writing and I was inspired by my tour and my fans inspired me a lot, but this spiritual journey I went on inspired me. It’s where I came up with the title ‘Warrior’. Also my fans really inspired that, because I feel I’ve heard so many stories of my fans across the world who have had to go through some sort of crisis, and had to really fight to be themselves through something, and I wanted them to feel like they’re all warriors, because I feel that is something we all have inside of ourselves. Either we can be a victim, or we can be a warrior, and I wanted to inspire that with my fans.”

Kesha 'Ke$ha' Sebert interviewed about her new album 'Warrior' on a hotel room bedAsked what the theme of ‘Warrior’ is, Kesha responded, “I’d like to say magic. I hope it’s a magical record, like the magic of life. There are party songs, but there’s also songs about ghosts and regressing into a past life experience, which is something I did. And my car, which is like a metal beast of an American made car. I just write about all sorts of crazy sh**, so I wanted to write about the magic of life.”

Discussing her collaborators this time around, Kesha said, “I wanted to work with Iggy Pop, because he and Marc Bolan are the two people I repeat all the time, so I really wanted to work with him, and I’ve been stalking him for years, and I finally got to him. I was like ‘Let’s just do it’, and he was down. He was the most amazing human on the planet, so I’m really proud of that collaboration. We wrote a song together called ‘Dirty Love’ and it’s just screaming. It was so fun.”

On the message behind ‘Die Young’, Kesha explained, “I try to live everyday as if it could be my last, because you never know, so I think that everyone should just live, right now.”

Kesha shows off her dagger outfit on the set of her 'Die Young' music video

Kesha “Ke$ha” Sebert is out with footage from the set of her Darren Craig directed ‘Die Young’ music video, where the American pop singer plays the role of a cult leader in Mexico. ‘Die Young’ is the first single from Kesha’s second studio album ‘Warrior’.

Describing the scene, Kesha said, “We just shot the scene where I get out of my evil Hearse and my cult followers bring their warrior goddess leader to our new place of worship. We’re going into the church to make it our lair.”

Talking about the music video theme, she said, “I wanted to come across like a cult, because I always say that me and my fans, and me and my family and me and my friends were all like a cult, rabid, wild misfits. I really wanted that to come across in this video.”

As the shoot was wrapping, Kesha confessed, “I’m filthy. It was like 19 hours of filth and grime and sweat and gross.”

Discussing about the process, Kesha said, “I love making music videos because the writing of the record and the singing and tweaking mixes, it’s such a long, involved process. It’s taken me a year to put out my record ‘Warrior’, so making a music video is making that all come to life.”
