When Hollywood Vampires, the supergroup featuring Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry and Duff McKagan, among others, played their first gigs in late 2015, they invited some guest performers. One of the singers was Kesha.
The pop star had previously duetted with Cooper on “What Baby Wants,” a song on his latest solo record, 2011’s Welcome 2 My Nightmare. She had also previously joined Cooper onstage around that time to sing “School’s Out” at small gig in Hollywood.
With the Hollywood Vampires – who played two gigs at Hollywood outpost the Roxy – she put her all into a rendition of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” on both nights. Video from the first night shows her sauntering onstage in a long-tail jacket and skyscraper-high heels as the group plays its soul-inflected intro to the tune. Cooper hangs back in the shadows, as she belts the verses right down to their last “You need me, womaaaaan” howls, although she disappears sometime during the guitar solos.
She came back onstage a few songs later for an all-star version of Cooper’s “School’s out,” which also featured Tom Morello, Perry Farrell and Zak Starkey.
Akon Tells TMZ about what he feels in this Kesha and Luke Situation
TMZ: What do you think Dr. Luke [should do]…is it just better to cut his loss, you know what I mean?
Akon: I mean, if I was Dr. Luke, I would just release her, and allow her to live her life the way it should be. You know what I mean? I wouldn’t hold her to a contract, especially if you’re not gonna do business with her. I wouldn’t want to keep an artist a part of my family, or label, that doesn’t want to be there. Why?
Akon: It only creates more problems, as it’s doing now, cuz think about it. If this assault situation sticks, Dr. Luke’s career is over. It’s sad cuz I know him in person, and he’s a great guy. An amazing person. I can’t see it happening personally, but nowadays you just never really know. You know? And I just–but I don’t, from the guy that I know, I don’t see it being possible, but I don’t want to discredit Kesha either, because she could be a legitimate victim. My advice to Dr. Luke is to cut her loose, work out whatever settlement that works for both, but I don’t think it’s something you should grab, hold on to.
Animalsss!!! Ke$ha wants to see you get CRAZZYY. Post your version of this dance to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #crazykidsdance and she’ll share her favorites. You could win some merch too. Let’s get weeeeeird!!
Kesha Rose Sebert (born March 1, 1987), known mononymously as Kesha (formerly stylized as Ke$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.
True Colors is the title track of Zedd's second studio album. Kesha preformed the song with Zedd at Coachella and got such positive feedback that the two decided to record a studio version. RCA gave permission for the track to be released, and it became the first song Kesha has released since she filed her lawsuit.
