** "Supernatural" is about having sex with a ghost. WordOfGod claims that the song's based off a true incident--although considering Ke$ha, the seriousness behind that statement is in question.

Kesha Rose Sebert (pronounced as Kesh-uh, born March 1, 1987), is a singer/rapper known by the mononym of Kesha (2009-present) (formerly stylized as [=Ke$ha=]). Kesha was born in Los Angeles, but raised in [[DeepSouth Nashville, Tennessee]]. Her breakthrough single came in early 2009 after appearing on Flo Rida's number one single "Right Round". She wrote songs for Music/MileyCyrus (Time Of Our Lives) Music/TheVeronicas (This Love) and worked on "Lace And Leather" for Music/BritneySpears before she hit the big time. Her debut single, "[=TiK ToK=]", and album, ''Animal'' followed shortly afterwards in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Later, she released an EP, ''Cannibal'', which featured successful songs such as "We R Who We R", "Blow", and "Sleazy". She currently finished the Get Sleazy Tour then released a second album.

Her SignatureStyle can be roughly summed up as {{Retraux}}-style SynthPop with [[TheLadette tomboyish]] [[OneOfTheBoys lyrical themes]] and AutoTune up the wazoo. She typically includes satirical lyrics that objectify men to point out how many male singers and rappers objectify women. She also incorporates a a healthy dose of rock influence, and has collaborated with famous rock musicians such as Music/IggyPop, Music/AliceCooper, and Music/FlamingLips. (Alice Cooper noted that she wasn't a pop diva so much as a rock star). She also frequently incorporates a talky style of rapping with exaggerated phrasing and enunciation. [[GenreRoulette She tends to experiment a bit]].

In February 2016 a long running dispute with her producer and record company exploded messily into the news and onto Twitter after a judge's ruling. To avoid controversy, [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement that's all we're going to say here]], see Wiki/TheOtherWiki for details.

Her third full-length, ''Rainbow,'' was released on August 11th, 2017.

By the end of 2009,
she hit released her debut single "Tik Tok", which became a ''massive'' hit. In addition to setting a record for the big time. most downloads in a single week by a female artist (610,000), it also has the distinction of being the fifth-highest selling digital single of ''all time.''

Her debut single, "[=TiK ToK=]", and album, album ''Animal'' followed shortly afterwards in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Later, she was then released an EP, on the very first day of [[UsefulNotes/TheNewTens the 2010s]], and proved to be a similar success on the charts worldwide. After a string of additional hits ("Blah Blah Blah", "Your Love is My Drug", and "Take It Off"), ''Animal'' was re-released as ''Cannibal'', which featured successful songs such as supported by the singles "We R Who We R", "Blow", R" (which gave Kesha her second #1) and "Sleazy".

Kesha's second album, ''Warrior'', was released in 2012 to middling success. During this time, she also teased a collaborative album with FlamingLips --titled ''Lipsha''-- which was ultimately canceled because of issues with her label and frequent producer Dr. Luke.

Despite her personal (and professional) troubles, Kesha finally
released a second album.

Her SignatureStyle
third studio album, ''Rainbow'', in 2017 -- her first in nearly five years. Characterized by [[DarkerAndEdgier achingly personal lyrics]] and a [[NewSoundAlbum more organic sound]] than her previous efforts, ''Rainbow'' earned Kesha the critical acclaim she'd perhaps lacked until up until that point. It's also notable for including a cover of "Old Flames (Can't Hold a Candle To You)" by Music/DollyParton --a song co-written by Kesha's mother, Pebe Sebert-- which she previously covered on her ''Deconstructed'' EP in 2012. [[CreatorCameo The new version also features Dolly Parton herself on guest vocals]].
