Watch the video for Ke$ha’s latest single, then tell us how you’d rate it on a scale of 1 to WTF.
If I had to describe Ke$ha‘s music video for “C’mon” from a literal standpoint, I guess I’d say this: A young-ish human lady does a bunch of drugs with her posse of reject mascots from a forgotten ’70s amusement park, then robs a convenience store and proceeds to dance in the wreckage of her chaos. Oh, and she turns a guy into a cat. I think that pretty much sums it up.
If, however, I were to describe it from a analytical standpoint, I’d say it’s just a metaphor for how we all feel deep down inside. When we do acid.
Ke$ha’s ‘Die Young’ Controversy
It’s a good thing Ke$ha released “C’Mon” so quickly, because her last single, “Die Young,” didn’t exactly perform as well as she’d hoped.
Following the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., Ke$ha’s song received a major backlash. TMZ reports that “Die Young” was No. 3 on radio playlists the day of the Friday shooting, but by that Monday, it had dropped significantly. It went from reaching 167 million nationwide listeners to 148 million, an unheard-of decline, according to music industry insiders.
But how did Ke$ha respond to the controversy? Here’s the statement she posted on her official website:
“After such a tragic event I was feeling a lot of emotion and sadness when I said I was forced to sing some of the lyrics to Die Young. Forced is not the right word. I did have some concerns about the phrase “die young” in the chorus when we were writing the lyrics especially because so many of my fans are young and that’s one reason why I wrote so many versions of this song. But the point of the song is the importance of living every day to the fullest and staying young at heart, and these are things I truly believe.”
