Getting To Know Ke$ha

When I first heard “Tik Tok”, I thought, “Ok, this is pretty catchy – let me check the video.” Once I saw the video, I thought, “Interesting, this girl could really strike a nerve with the disposable pop market, but does she have more?” Then I heard “Blah Blah Blah” (she’s filming the video now for it as the 2nd release) and I thought, “Again, disposable but catchy as hell – two hot songs off a debut track plus an image that’s quite marketable, hmmm…” But then I heard the album about a month in advance and there are about 5-6 possible hits, I think we could have a new pop star – let’s see if she can deepen her image now and make herself not only marketable but also credible as well. I love that she was on Flo Rida’s “Right Round” but didn’t get paid and also declined to be part of the video, she said no. I like that she’s pretty forthcoming about her message and her struggles, and I most of all like that she appears to be in on the joke, if that makes sense.

Anyway, I won’t bore you with my entire timeline of thoughts about her and perhaps you don’t give this kind of thought to a new artist breaking into the market, but it’s something I’ve been doing since I was in high school, so indulge me if you would. This all leads to an interesting interview that she gave, and I’m including a few highlights (or factoids) below and here is a link for the full interview:

  • She was on The Simple Life with Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton because the producers were looking for a highly eccentric family and her family won out.
  • While they were at her home, her demo tape had made its way to Dr Luke, the Swedish songwriter behind hits for Kelly Clarkson (Since U Been Gone), Katy Perry (I Kissed a Girl) and Pink (Who Knew). He called the Kesha’s house at the worst time possible – a petulant pre-motherhood Nicole Richie answered. “She hung up on him,” Ke$ha recalls. “She said ‘Oh, it was just some guy’. Thank God he called back. She could have ruined everything, that bitch! Luckily she didn’t.”
  • She once puked in Paris’ closet at a party.
  • She sang back-up for Britney Spears, but I’m not sure of the track.
  • She was in Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” video.
