Between my college course on the performativity of witchcraft, my thorough reading of the Malleus Maleficarum (in Olde English), my Bigfoot conspiracist boyfriend, my alien obsessed middle school teacher and my background in Jungian psychology, I have some thoughts on Ke$ha’s recent claim that she had sex with a ghost. Last week, while promoting her new single “Supernatural,” she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that she “had a couple of experiences with the supernatural. I don’t know his name! He was a ghost! I’m very open to it,” she revealed.
These alleged “experiences” happened while Ke$ha was on a “spirit journey” by herself. Meaning, she traveled around the world, lived on a boat and did stuff like rehabilitate baby lions and swim with sharks. I’ve never had the time, nor the funding, to go on a spirit journey, but trust, I would if I could. My version of a “spirit journey” was participating in a Native American sweat ritual and having a pendulum reading by a psychic. Same difference, right? While I’ve never had ghost sex of any kind, I have had some bizarre supernatural experiences myself. So, I’m going to give Ke$ha the benefit of the doubt here, but still temper it with some skepticism. Here are my theories about her claim that she had supernatural sex.
