Kesha Covers V Magazine
Kesha gets patriotic on the cover of V magazine’s Americana situation.
The eccentric blonde dons an American flag in face paint that starts out clean and ends up smeared, considerably like the starlet’s signature makeup. In other photographs, she wears cowboy boots and an American flag dress. She’s demonstrated prior to that she can clean up superbly, and she continues the trend in V, exactly where she dished about songwriting and just how wild she and her animals can get.
K-Dollar-Sign exposed that compared to her far more polished pop stars, she can kind of really feel left out — but she doesn’t thoughts much. “I do feel like there are the pop stars of the planet and then I’m like their dirty small sister, working all around with s— on my face in combat boots simply because I can not stroll in heels,” she said. What else sets her apart? The fact that she writes all of her personal songs. “Everything I sing, I compose. Enjoy it or hate it, it all comes from me.”
Her type is also very a bit out there in comparison to her more glammed out cohorts, which Dr. Luke says tends to make her much more relatable. “It’s challenging for children to emulate a person with twenty trend men and women on staff,” he stated. “Kesha comes out in an AC/DC T-shirt that she found in a dumpster, actually, and she rocks it. It is kind of a metaphor for who she is. Any individual can be Kesha in their own way.” Kesha echoes Luke’s sentiments, calling her style sense rather deliberate. “I attempt to include my fans in my message. I do really feel like there is an component of what I’m doing that is about where I come from, which is functioning-class,” she says. “I was never the cool kid, I was never ever hot in substantial school. I was by no means common. You do not have to be best and you do not have to be rich and you can nevertheless be profitable.”
Although she calls her fans “animals,” she adores literal ones just as significantly — so much, in fact, that she’s starring in a Nationwide Geographic series chronicling her function with wildlife. “The present appears at animals becoming abused and how to quit that, or animals that are going extinct and how to assist those animals,” Kesha mentioned. “I am so passionate. I like animals much more than people.”
Kesha referred to as paparazzi interest “mind boggling,” but she’s discovered approaches to steer clear of it: by divvying up the time she spends in L.A. with the time she spends in her native Tennessee. “I have wild, wild nights there,” she says of her hometown, “but my pals and I are all genuinely private. We get f—ing insane, but you’re not going to see me stumbling out of nightclubs.”
The initial record was all me residing in L.A., making an attempt to pay my rent, have a really good time, and appear excellent on nothing at all. But ever considering that then I’ve noticed how many people my music can reach, and I’ve recognized that I have somewhat of a social responsibility to make confident anything I say is optimistic. The underlying theme of this subsequent record is warrior, with the optimistic message being that absolutely everyone has a warrior inside.”
Kesha gave some deets about her new album, like on Justin Bieber‘s rumored look, which she stays coy about. “We’re just speaking!” Fair enough (sorry Beliebers!). So who’s she dying to function with? “I would enjoy to have Keith Richards on the record. I would certain as hell like to do a collaboration with Bieber and at the very same time do a song with the Flaming Lips,” she mentioned. “If an individual is a real artist, you cannot confine them to a specific genre. It is my mission to make it all make sense by some means.”
So what about the rest of the album? “Some individuals will be shocked. Some will also be excited to know that I do not just do silly white-lady rap,” she stated. “I’m from the South, I have a great deal of soul. But trust me—it’s not going to be some avant-garde jazz record. I innately create pop songs. That’s just what I do.”
