Kesha covers V Magazine looking like a got damn freak. But you know what? She is one of, if not my favorite pop star right now. I adore Ri too because she is such a hot mess with an I-don’t-give-an-eff attitude.
At any rate, we’re talking Kesha. Kesha got her face painted circus style all patriotic-like and gave an interview. And I must say, at least when Kesha speaks, I listen. These other bubble gum poppers I can only give the honorary eye roll too.
Here are the highlights from the interview.
ON BEING COMPARED TO OTHER POP STARS:
“I do feel like there are the pop stars of the world and then I’m like their dirty little sister, running around with shit on my face in combat boots because I can’t walk in heels.”
ON WHO SHE’D LOVE TO WORK WITH:
“The range of artists I want to work with is so vast it’s bizarre. I would love to have Keith Richards on the record. I would sure as hell like to do a collaboration with Bieber and at the same time do a song with the Flaming Lips. If someone is a real artist, you can’t confine them to a particular genre. It’s my mission to make it all make sense somehow.”
ON CONNECTING WITH HER FANS:
“I try to include my fans in my message. I do feel like there is an element of what I’m doing that is about where I come from, which is working-class. I was never the cool kid, I was never hot in high school. I was never popular. You don’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to be rich and you can still be successful.”
ON DEALING WITH THE PAPARAZZI:
“When paparazzi showed up at my house, it was really mind-boggling. I’ve found ways to do exactly what I want, but in the privacy of my own sanctuaries. I have wild, wild nights [in the woods], but my friends and I are all really private. We get f–king crazy, but you’re not going to see me stumbling out of nightclubs.”
