Ke$ha Invents New Genre for Upcoming Album: "C--K Pop"
Ke$ha’s certainly known for being crude with her songs, but could she invent a new genre purely for the sake of vulgarity? A recent statement on her Twitter account indicates that she is. As the “We R Who We R” singer is working on a follow-up to her 2010 hit album Animal, she’s taking a new approach. In describing a recent recording session, she wrote: “Wailing on an epic track with Doctor Luke & Benny Blanco. This is the dawn of a new genre of music: C--K POP!!!”
What’s “c—k pop”? With her account getting hacked, the pop star regularly covered in glitter didn’t have a chance to explain herself. Previously, however, she’s made a few statements that could better pinpoint the sound. At one time, she mentioned that, when she’s upset, she’ll have her assistant dress up in a phallic costume.
On the other hand, “c—k pop” contradicts K-Dolla’s earlier statements about vulnerability on her follow-up. Considering the Beastie Boys an influence for her debut, she has since turned to the sounds of Iggy Pop, Led Zeppelin, and AC/DC. Covering a Bob Dylan song and recording with Alice Cooper might also point to a new attitude. Speaking with MTV, she talked about exposing her vulnerable side: “I very much want to be seen as a strong woman, but I realize that vulnerability can also be a strength. So on my next record, you are going to hear probably a little more of that. I'm not going to make an acoustic, sad entire record.”
So, between “vulnerable” but not acoustic, some “c—k pop,” and classic rock influences, what do you think Ke$ha’s new album, which already has 200 songs written for it so far, could sound like?
