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$ha the benefit of the doubt here, but still temper it with some skepticism. Here are my theories about her claim that she had supernatural sex.
We’re not followers of Ke$ha’s music, but after hearing about the inspiration for her latest song, “Supernatural,” we’re, well, haunted. “It’s about experiences with the supernatural… but in a sexy way,” she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show. “I had a couple of experiences with the supernatural. I don’t know his name! He was a ghost! I’m very open to it.” [Huffington Post]
Listen, we’re not totally opposed to concept of their being an afterlife and that some spirits walk amongst us. But we don’t know that we’d be game to get frisky with one either. Doesn’t seem very … intimate. But maybe we’re wrong. After all, Ke$ha is not the only person to have had some sort of sexual encounter with someone or something not quite … human. Read on for more sexual encounters of the third kind…
When a girl’s gotta go, a girl’s gotta go. I’m not sure the “PoPo” referenced in Ke$ha’s tweet earlier this week would accept that as a reasonable defense for deciding to pee in the street and tweeting the photo to all her followers. Still, I must commend her balance — popping a squat and taking a photo at the same time? Ke$ha actually does have talent! But she’s not the only celeb who has a knack for embarrassing themselves on Twitter. Let’s look at some recent celeb tweets that made us facepalm. Keep reading »
Ke$ha seems to be enjoying this mouth full of facial hair far too much. Apparently this is some kind of fetish of hers as evidenced on the blog Put Your Beard In My Mouth. Some of us like to chew on beards and some of us find that repulsive. To each her own. [Buzzfeed]
“I’m not a submissive, perfect pop princess, that’s for damned sure. I do think I have a rebellious, metal-loving rock chick inside of me. … I’ve always loved rock’n'roll. It’s about subversion. I’m talking to millions of people around the world about having sex freely, getting hammered, and partying. It’s fun for me to be riding that line of appropriateness. I’m here to level the playing field. Chicks can talk about the same sh*t that guys can, and they can be just as badass.”
— Ke$ha on teaming up with Alice Cooper for a song on his new album and why she’s more “metal-loving rock chick” than “Britney Spears.” I always thought Ke$ha was kind of annoying, but now I want to smash guitars and trash hotel rooms together. [Guardian UK] Keep reading »
Wow. Without the tiger masks and excessive glitter, Ke$ha is absolutely stunning. Here, she posed for a photoshoot with Terry Richardson. It must be opposite day, because both of them appear positively wholesome. They clean up nicely. [Celebuzz] Keep reading »
“That song. I’ve never been more proud of anything in my career … It really solidifies me as a songwriter in the pop music world, which is what I consider myself first and foremost. So it actually is really, really exciting for me when I hear [Britney] sing it. Like, when I hear my own songs on the radio I have to kind of turn it down or change the radio or whatever. When I hear that, I fucking blow the speakers out and I order everybody to dance.”
—Ke$ha tells New York why she decided to give her song “Till The World Ends” to Britney Spears rather than record it herself. Interestingly, the answer seems to be self-loathing rather than straight-up altruism. Too bad. The song has been on the “Top 100″ chart for 14 weeks and sold a million copies. But we bet Ke$ha has many more hits in her. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
