Kesha Says Aliens Inspired Her New Album
Lots of things inspire artists to write music. Apparently, even extraterrestrials.
While promoting her new album, Rainbow, Kesha opened up about being inspired by an unlikely muse. The singer was hanging out in California’s Joshua Tree National Park when she had an unusual encounter. On the Zach Sang Show, she said:
“I was in Joshua Tree, totally sober – let me preface [this, I was] completely f***ing sober… I think people would be like, ‘She was on acid’ or something. I wasn’t. I was on nothing. I swear to God, there were like five to seven, and I don’t know why I didn’t like try to take a picture of it – I just looked at it. I was sitting on a rock, and I was like, ‘What in the hell is that? I was trying to figure it out, and then they went away. And then they came back. They came back in a different formation than the one they were in previously. I was like, ‘Those are f**king aliens.’ They were spaceships.”
Back in May, the 30-year-old took to Instagram proclaiming that she has seen proof of life on other planets, writing, “ufos are real. i have seen them. not playing.” Take a look below:
The songwriter’s third album cover art features several spaceships, and one of the tracks on it is even called “Spaceship.”
Rainbow is Kesha’s first album since she came forward with a lawsuit against her producer Dr. Luke in which she accused him of abusing her sexually, phyically, verbally, emotionally.
