Kesha Rose Sebert (born March 1, 1987), known mononymously as Kesha (formerly stylized as Ke$ha), is an American singer, songwriter, and rapper. In 2005, at age 18, Kesha was signed to producer Dr. Luke's label Kemosabe Records. Her breakthrough came in early 2009 after appearing on rapper Flo Rida's number-one single "Right Round". Her debut album, Animal, and her first extended play, Cannibal, were released in 2010. Kesha's music and image propelled her to immediate commercial success, with Animal debuting as the number-one album in the United States. She also achieved two number-one singles, "Tik Tok" and "We R Who We R", and a string of top-ten hits singles from the album and its re-release. At the same time, she continued to write songs for other artists, including "Till the World Ends" for Britney Spears. Warrior, her second studio album, was released in December 2012, spawning Kesha's eighth top-ten single with "Die Young". "Tik Tok" is among the best-selling digital singles in history, selling over 14 million units internationally.
Praying is a song performed by Kesha for Rainbow. It was released as the lead single for her third studio album on July 6, 2017, following an announcement made on her Instagram page. The song was written by Kesha with Ben Abraham and Ryan Lewis. An accompanying music video was released the same day.

Ke$ha and her backup dancers may have put on their best performance yet as the pop star sent her crew to respond to the Westboro Baptist Church protest that was taking place outside her concert in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Three tank-top clad men showed off their moves as WBC members shouted the lyrics to “God Hates Who U R,” an anti-gay parody of Ke$ha’s anthem of acceptance “We R Who We R.”
The Westboro Baptist protestors didn’t seem to quite know how to react, holding up their anti-gay and anti-Obama signs while awkwardly swaying to the auto-tuned beat (lady in the floppy hat, we’re looking at you) as the dancers did their thing. Most ineffective protest ever?
Well played, Ke$ha, well played. You’ve made the world a more accepting, as well as a more glitter-filled, place.
A lot of people love penises–but not everyone has the wherewithal to create an entire jewelry line covered in them. Thankfully, Ke$ha did. The popstar’s recently launched collection with Charles Albert, “Kesha Rose,” is filled with human teeth, skulls, arrowheads, roses, and yep, phalluses. Handcrafted using hypoallergenic Alchemía in place of more traditional jewelry metals, the 140+ piece line (priced from $12-$600) was an instant sellout when it debuted online a few weeks ago. That’s a whole lotta little penises.
We caught up with Ke$ha, who’s in the midst of a world tour, via email to get the deets on what makes her newfound jewelry biz “TiK ToK” (SNAP!).
Fashionista: What made you want to do a jewelry line? Ke$ha: It was a natural next step for me. I am obsessed with jewelry, especially natural stones, and it just made sense for me to eventually make my own. I also love the metaphysical properties of many of the stones we are using.
Who are you envisioning wearing your creations?
There is something for everyone in my line. Smaller, daintier pieces for those who want to dress up but not go too crazy, and big chunky ones for those who want to make a bold statement.
Last night (August 10th) Ke$ha performed at the Sand Steel Stage in Bethleham for Musikfest 2013. Five songs into her 16-song, 80-minute show at Musikfest, Ke$ha revealed she had a “little surprise”: The concert was the first being filmed for the second season of her MTV reality show “Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life.”
“Now this is where you take your boobs out and make out with your neighbor,”
How did the collaboration with the Charles Albert brand come about?
I have been wearing Charles Albert for a few years now and I’m obsessed with their jewelry. It’s fun, massive, and makes such a wild statement. I didn’t know Charles himself until we started working together, but once we did, I realized how amazing this partnership would be because of how similar our vision and aesthetic are.
What is one of your key items for this upcoming Holiday/Resort 13-14 season?
The teeth!! They were molded after one of my fan’s teeth that were sent to me. They are my favorite because they represent my love for all of my ANIMALS.
Explain your creative process in designing this collection.
The design process was so fun. Charles, Beth and their whole team are so collaborative and always a good time to work with. Going to their office was like a crazy playground for me – so many fun stones and colors and weird objects! We just sat around and played with all of it for a few days and ended up with a sick collection of pieces in the end. I could not be more excited.
How do you go about expressing your authentic self through this collection making it truly mirror your style?
Each piece is a reflection of me, what I like to feel, and what I like to wear. The natural materials and bold statement pieces really reflect my design aesthetic and style. I only design pieces that I would actually wear – and I do!
What is the best advice you have ever received?
The best advice I ever received was from my mom who told me to never take no for an answer. If you want something, you have to fight for it and never give up.
How do you personally stay up-to-date with fashion?
I try not to worry about staying “up-to-date” on current trends. It’s all just fun for me so I wear what I feel comfortable in and what makes me happy. The most attractive thing about a person is confidence. If you feel good in what you’re wearing, you will always look great!
Covering The Stone Roses – like re-imagining In the Court of the Crimson King – is no grand statement. It’s not intended to replace or improve upon the original LP; it’s technically not even a Flaming Lips side project or being released on a label. “It’s mostly just for my own dumb entertainment – we only make 500 copies…” Coyne explained to Rock it Out! Blog at this year’s SXSW. Presumably the other artists that appear on the new record – Foxygen, Polica, Peaking Lights, Kesha, most of the artist on Playing Hide and Seek and more – were stupidly entertained as well, as will be their fans.
As for Kesha, she guests on “Elizabeth My Dear.” Stay tuned for The Future Heart’s soon to be published update on Lip$ha, The Flaming Lips album with K$. In the meantime, watch Coyne and Kesha duet last September backed by Ben Folds Five.
When we caught wind of Ke$ha’s accessory line with Charles Albert, we decided to take the optimistic route and put our good faith in the pop star’s sartorial taste. Well, it appears those good vibes paid off! The singer’s designs are selling out, and they’ve only been on the market for a few days. Apparently, people have no problem rocking a penis pendant, or at least that’s what the numbers suggest.
Aside from the gilded genitalia, Ke$ha’s Kesha Rose collection is pretty freakin’ awesome. Spiked gold cuffs, mother-of-pearl skulls, and human teeth make for more elegant accessories than you’d think. It’s this tongue-in-cheek feel that sets Ke$ha’s line apart from other celebrity collections, and gives us the impression that she really had something to do with it. At this rate, we suggest scooping up what you can before the whole collection sells out — or inevitably makes its way to eBay at 10 times the price.
