Your weekly dose of celebrity commentary and gossip, with a lesbian spin.
I was 19 years old when I first fell in love.
It wasn’t with a person, but a song. A song that perfectly described my life. Or a song that I wish perfectly described my life, that is.
Ke$ha’s timeless tune Tik Tok became the anthem for me and my friends our sophomore year of college. Each morning I woke up trying so hard to feel like P. Diddy. I even tried brushing my teeth with a bottle of Jack.
I have been proudly idolizing Ke$ha since day one. She can do no wrong. Heck, I wasn’t even creeped out when she sang about wanting to keep her lover under her bed to play with forever. She sings about the real, pressing issues of life: being hungover, partying at rich dudes’ houses, and being sleazy.
The beautiful songstress claims she is neither gay nor straight and doesn’t like labeling people. She must just mean labels based on sexuality though, because she does throw out some choice adjectives to describe back stabbers and ugly boyfriend stealers.
Just when I thought Ke$ha couldn’t get any better, she came out with the song We R Who We R in 2010 as an ode to bullied gay teens. She even teamed up with the Human Rights Campaign to create a customized unisex shirt with the lyrics “We R Who We R” to encourage people to accept each other’s differences.
Ke$ha has also dabbled in the It Gets Better Campaign, stating, “No matter if you’re gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, however you are choosing to live is beautiful and you have my full support and all of my love.”
Now, she’s back at it again with her newest album, “Warrior,” which was partially inspired by the LGBT community. Ke$ha told Britain’s newspaper The Sun that she wanted to write an album that inspired people.
“Something I kept hearing about was bullying and sexuality,” she said. “I have a lot of gay and lesbian fans and they said how my music had helped them deal with bullying so I wanted to write a record that’s about love and acceptance.”
Oh, Ke$ha. You are just a gem. Keep up the good work.
Warrior is due to be released on December 4.
