Trivia / Kesha

Go To

  • Distanced from Current Events: "Die Young" was temporarily pulled from radio stations following the Sandy Hook School shooting in December 2012, although the song it self was already at the end of its radio cycle before said events. She herself felt incredibly bad about it.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • While he's not a fan of hers (at least, her Pre-Rainbow work) Todd in the Shadows has been known to refer to her as "Ke-Dollar Sign-Ha", a nickname also used in her video for "Blow" and by Principal Figgins from Glee.

  • Executive Meddling: "Warrior" (the entire album) suffered from it.
  • He Also Did: Many of her songs were co-written by her mother, Pebe Sebert. Way back in 1980, Pebe co-wrote Dolly Parton's #1 hit "Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You".
  • In Memoriam: "We R Who We R", which was a dedication to the gay teen suicides in 2010. Even more poignant in the music video, where she tosses herself off of a skyscraper.
  • Name's the Same: There's a village named Kesha in the Yongshun province of China.
  • Reality Subtext: Unreleased "Dancing With The Devil" is about Dr. Luke, her producer. Maybe.
    • "Praying" is the culmination of all the alleged abuse she endured under him and all the media haters.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers: The Dr. Luke lawsuit resulted in her being "JoJo'd", being unable to record music for quite some time, though she (and JoJo too) would later finally release albums.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: Iggy Pop's verse on "Dirty Love" from 2012's Warrior mentions Rick Santorum, who was a major conservative political figure from the mid-2000's to the early 2010's, but has largely dropped off the radar since.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Lipsha, the cancelled collaborative album with The Flaming Lips.
    • Warrior was gonna be more rock then it was and Die Young was altered between recording and release.

How well does it match the trope?
