Pop star Ke$ha seems to be forever looking for new ways to gross out the fans. Her latest claim is that “Gold Trans Am” from her album, Warrior, is really about her girl parts — and that her mother Pebe helped her write the song.
Apparently, it really did start out to be a serenade to her car, but she told Tim Nixon of The Sun that, “like all great pop it became a metaphor for something else – my p****.”
You have to love that modest and unassuming “like all great pop.” And writing about your hoo-hah with your own mother has a decent amount of squick factor. Still, it doesn’t rank up there with the classic Ke$ha publicity stunts such as drinking blood from a heart at the Future Music Festival in Sydney, reported in 2011 by NME Radio.
Last year, she phoned into On Air with Ryan Seacrest to inform the fans that she’d had “sexy time” with a ghost. In November, Tara Dodrill reported that she’d made a bra, earrings, and headdress out of 1,000 human teeth sent in by her fans.
However, not everyone believes that Ke$ha is as disgusting as she pretends to be.
David Moye, reporting for the Huffington Post asked a few occultists what they thought of Ke$ha’s claim to have slept with a spirit. Alexandra Holtzer, a ghost researcher, was frank about her doubts:
“The people who report having sex with a ghost report feeling pressure on them and even penetration, but ghosts don’t have warmth. When they’re in the room, it’s a very cold environment.”
For the record, NME Radio strongly hinted that they thought the bloody heart-drinking video was also a fake.
The doubters aren’t enough to stop Ke$ha from trying to freak out her public. Todd Rigney noted that she recently admitted to drinking her own urine while working on the upcoming MTV documentary, Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life.
Writing songs about her vay-jay-jay with her own mother seems pretty tame by contrast. Ke$ha, if you want us to believe you’re truly icky and squicky, you’ve got to give us more.
