One of those sides she’s tapping into? The supernatural.
Ke$ha described her most recent ghost encounter, which went down in a San Francisco elevator.
“I was kind of talking s*** to the ghost and apparently it didn’t think it was very funny,” she explained. “The elevator went completely haywire! It shot from the top floor to the bottom floor way faster than any elevator is actually supposed to move and I’m sitting there laughing so hard and I’m like peeing in my pants and my friend is crying in the corner and then finally it just stopped after two minutes.”
While she didn’t specify if that experience made it’s way onto her album, she did mention her favorite collaborator on her upcoming release Warrior. Expect to hear from several big names on Warrior including will.i.am, fun.’s Nate Ruess, Ben Folds, The Black Keys’ drummer Patrick Carney, The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne, and one of her personal idols, Iggy Pop.
“He’s like a god to me and I couldn’t even believe he would sit in the same room with me,” she said. “On the song I did with Iggy Pop, I was just screaming about sex. It’s really fun.”
Nevertheless, Ke$ha’s love life isn’t as wild as her music would suggest.
“You know, unfortunately, it’s been a bit of a dry spell, but I’ve just been trapped in the studio with a bunch of old dudes!”
And it’s not because she’s picky. When asked if she’s into girls, she coyly replied, “Um, I love everybody.”
Warrior will be released December 4th.
