Kes$ha is in on the joke, you guys. She knows she is utterly ridiculous, and she is going with it. For some reason her management won't let her sing "Dance Magic Dance" (made famous by David Bowie in Labyrinth) on stage while she's on tour. But whatever. Eric Spitznagel's interview with the pop star includes revelations like:
Do you have a favorite Muppet? One that you've been dying to collaborate with?
What's the guy's name who lives in garbage?
Oscar the Grouch! Yeah, I'd want to duet with him. We have a lot in common. We share a very similar personal philosophy on life. He and I are one in the same.
What's your glitter budget for a typical year? It's got to be in the thousands, right?
Honestly, it's pretty exorbitant. It's probably more like a few thousand every month. If you come and see a show of mine, there is no shortage of glitter. By the end, everyone from the back of the auditorium to the very front is covered and potentially choking on glitter. I am shooting glitter from glitter guns and out of every orifice in my body. It's really a big part of what I do. It's my goal to cover the planet in glitter and take the fuck over. I can't do that if I don't have a shit-ton of glitter.
Wait, did I hear you correctly? You've got glitter coming out of every orifice?
That's right. I've found glitter in places that will not be named in this interview.
Spitznagel notes that with lyrics like "Your love / Your love / Your love / Is my drug / I like your beard" Ke$ha was "unfairly" snubbed for a Grammy nomination, but that's taking things a step too far. Ke$ha doesn't aim that high, anyway: "I loved Tina Turner in Mad Max. I want to do something like that. Or David Bowie in Labyrinth. It's a dream of mine to be the sci-fi weirdo in some crazy cult movie. I don't even care if it's a made-for-TV movie. Sign me up!"
