When you say the name “Ke$ha” to someone and ask them to tell you the first word that pops into their head, the word is probably “crazy.” They’re not wrong.
In a recent interview with Billboard, the “Die Young” singer opened up about exactly how insane her daily life really is.
Possibly the craziest excerpt from the interview was when she was asked about undergoing an exorcism in order to expel dead energies from her body. Here’s how she described the situation involved;
“There’s a lot of screaming and grabbing energies and she was talking in tongues. She was speaking Latin or something, I’m not really sure. It was definitely another language, and she was making all sorts of crazy noises. At one point she started choking.”
Now I’m sure that most of you will agree that Ke$ha’s music seems to clearly reflect the crazy life which she leads. However, according to Ke$ha and her fans, the music she releases is actually being tightly controlled by the people in charge of her career.
More than 3,300 of Ke$ha’s fans have signed a petition for her to be released from her contract with producer Dr. Luke, because he is controlling her career;
They (Ke$ha’s fans) have over 3300 signatures now. Their argument is that Dr. Luke, and I’m quoting them here, is “controlling Ke$ha like a puppet.” Is this a petition you support?
“I feel like my fans are really protective of me. They just want to see me grow as an artist, which I agree with. Hopefully in the future, I’ll be in a position where I can put out a ballad or a more vulnerable song.”
You don’t have any creative control now?
“Not really. What’s been put out as singles have just perpetuated a particular image that may or may not be entirely accurate. I’d like to show the world other sides of my personality. I don’t want to just continue putting out the same song and becoming a parody myself. I have so much more to offer than that and I can’t wait till the world really gets to hear that on the radio.”
While saying that is all well and good, I’m not entirely sure that a ballad is really where Ke$ha wants to go. At one point in the interview she describes her house parties, which involve guests rolling around in paint and glitter, and running through the woods screaming like banshees…
Do you think that Ke$ha has the potential to release a ballad-style song and be commercially successful? Let us know in the comment section below!
