Ke$ha - The Live Experience

Forgive me Ke$ha for I have sinned. Until tonight's free concert at Fox Studios, I couldn't decided if you were the second coming of Kylie or just a sleazy skank with beer breath and a couple of semi-catchy tunes. I'm ashamed to admit that I even had the audacity to award your seminal pop masterpiece "Animal" a measly 7/10 in a recent review. However, I've seen the light and finally comprehend the full extent of your greatness. When you hit the stage looking like a drag queen crossed with a racing car driver, I was struck by your luminescent beauty and magnetic charisma. Even your double chin and camel toe were utterly alluring. The thing is, you radiate a warmth and sincerity that completely took me by surprise. I expected the brat from your iconic videos but you came across as the (admittedly slutty) girl next door performing karaoke after downing one too many Bacardi Breezers. And I say that with love. There was no pretence about the show whatsoever. You seemed genuinely thrilled to be there and gave 110% back to the fans.

Opening with "Backstabber" was a bold move that paid off. As was launching into the searing social commentary otherwise known as "Party At A Rich Dude's House". I now realise how amazing that song is and will never doubt your lyrical genius again. The unexpected highlight of the show was "Dinosaur". Your stunning choreography (clapping your hands and bumping into your guitarist) made Lady Gaga look like Bobo the clown, while your powerhouse vocals were pitch perfect. You then worked a miracle by making "Blah Blah Blah" bearable and closed the set in fine style by dragging out "Tik Tok". It was difficult to hear you over the army of 15 year old girls singing along but what I could make out was heavenly. Coming over to hug and greet your fans - I feel deeply honoured to have touched the rat's nest doubling as your hair - was a nice touch and no one in the audience will ever forget being sprayed by your glitter gun. I imagine it's the closest I'll ever get to a Bukkake session with Jesus. Anyhoo, I just wanted to say that I'm sorry for questioning you in the past. You are the Bob Dylan of our generation and will go down in history as one of music's greatest storytellers. Now please release "Stephen" or "Kiss N Tell" as your next single and hurry back to Australia with a full concert tour to bring your magic to the masses.

Much love,

Mike

Ke$ha is SO amazing. I love her how relatable she is and how she doesn't claim to be anything she isn't. Sure she comes across as a dumb hoe, but everything else is so awesome that I can't not like her. I can't wait for her to come do Canadian shows!

I love her! Though I am miffed she didn't do 'Boots & Boys' for you!

Scott said...

More genius, Mike! It's such a pity that he amazing personality seems to disappear in interviews. I'm glad she learnt early to cover the fug with glitter. Isn't "Your Love Is My Drug" the next single?

AND BITCH YOU DIDN'T TOUCH HER HAIR THAT WAS ME!

Excuse me, a raggedy strand wafted past my hand! Admittedly, I didn't get to grope her like you but it remains a spiritual experience.

Mike said...

PS. Thanks Scott & Benny. I do my best!

And yes, apparently "Your Love Is My Drug" is single number 3. I love that song but I would vastly prefer "Animal", "Kiss N tell", "Stephen" or "Take It off". After last night, I'd even be happy with "Dinosaur" or "Backstabber". I can't believe how harsh I was with her album. I'd give it at least 8.5 or 9/10 now!

Are you sure this wasn't written under the influence of her lady fumes? She looks like she was marinating in her own juices.

She killed a muppet and made her a new fur. sobsssssssss

I'm so glad GaGa has opened the door for more dancey pop! At least here in the states now we have a few fun songs inbetween the rap and boring ass Justin Bieber to listen to.

She's better than Lady Gaga because she has two cocks.

The Prophet said...

What's a Lady GaGa?

Is it that pretentious singer that used to be popular in 2009?

All I know now is Ke$ha. Ke$ha Ke$ha Ke$ha!

Is someone threatning her with a bottle of Head & Shoulders in the second picture?
