Ke$ha has certainly made a name for herself singing catchy pop tunes about the glory of partying and wearing too much glitter. But her fans might be surprised to hear the “Tik Tok” singer is getting major co-signs from some major rock artists.
“I think a lot of my audience is going to go, ‘Ke$ha?’ but she probably wrote the most wicked lyrics in the song — we had to rein her in,” he explained of his collabo with the pop star. “I like people to know that just because artists are put in a pigeon hole, that doesn’t mean that’s what they are; give people a little room.”
Ke$ha is also getting the stamp of approval from Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, who dished that he’d love the chance to work with K-dollar sign.
“I was not aware of how much Ke$ha was liking our music,” Coyne said. “But since you brought that to my attention, I will get someone to give me her number and call her, and I’ll suggest that we do something together.”
Ke$ha was quite appropriately excited about the request. She tweeted, “The flaming f—ing lips?? call me.”
Sure, Ke$ha is best known for Auto-Tuned party tracks, but her image has always been a little dirtier than her pop-princess counterparts. So it seems almost natural for her to hit up the studio with guys like Cooper and Coyne. Plus, these days, it’s quite commonplace for pop stars and rock stars to mix it up. On Lady Gaga’s Born This Way, she got some assists from Queen’s Brian May and the late, great Clarence Clemmons.
