Ke$ha's best known as pop's glittery wildchild, but the singer has a range of influences.
On her upcoming album "Warrior," which is scheduled to arrive November 30, Ke$ha tapped The Strokes' Julian Casablancas and Fabrizio Moretti and Patrick Carney of The Black Keys for collaborations.
Speaking with Spin magazine about their contributions, the "We Die Young" singer added that she wasn't even sure how Casablancas and Moretti got pulled on the project.
"They just were down, and I was down," Ke$ha said. "A friend of mine plays with Julian and we kind of knew each other, and Julian really likes Dr. Luke so they were talking, and it kind of happened, oddly organically and in a strange way. I'm a huge fan of their music, and they're on one of my favorite songs on the record."
Moretti and Casablancas, she added, are just "part of a long list of some of my favorite bands that have actually collaborated with me on ['Warrior']. It's really exciting for me to work with people that are unexpected. I hope people freak out. I kind of freaked out ..."
But when it came to landing Carney's assist, it was more like Ke$ha calling on a friend.
"[H]e's a close friend," she said. "I really wanted to capture that essence that my mom used to talk about - all my favorite records were made of people being friends and jamming and making music in an organic, spontaneous way, and I wanted to capture as much of that on a pop record as I could."
-i'll be on the other for a few hours. lazy
Shouldn't the article read "The Strokes and Black Keys tapped Ke$ha with their members?"
she looks like a trannie
I was down. Then they were down. Then I like freaked. I hope you freak.
She sounds even dimmer than me.
Kesha was a gifted student, who was accepted to multiple ivy league colleges. She scored 1500 out of 1600 on her SATs, so she's actually a lot smarter than most of us.
I've heard of her but never heard her music, that I know of. Is she any good?
I've never heard her music but she said they are "down" with this and that. I automatically don't care for the music of people who talk like that. They are way too cool for me.

I thought Ke$ha was best known as the trailer-trash, crack wh0re that gave out bl0w-j0bs for quick cash behind the Quickie Mart so she could buy time at a recording studio with an auto-tuner?
Just another white girl pretending to be black
Maybe she's looking to get on Welfare?
She looks like euro trash.
