Kesha’s career is skyrocketing, as she launches into primetime on ABC’s new reality competition ‘Rising Star’, and her personal life is also at an all-time high: the singer tells all about her boyfriend!
Kesha Debuts On ‘Rising Star’ As Expert
Kesha joins Brad Paisley, Ludacris and host Josh Groban on ABC’s brand new singing competition Rising Star (premieres Sunday, June 22, 9/8c, ABC), which lets viewers vote in real time.
The famous panel of musicians aren’t judges — they’re “experts,” but they are voters, just like us!
“I just vote the same way that you guys vote,” Kesha tells Ryan Seacrest on On Air With Ryan Seacrest on Friday, June 20. “Once they go through, then we get to talk to them and mentor them and kind of bring out the best in them and help explain what to do.”
The show will feature a brand new format from all other singing competition shows. “It is kind of amazing and genius and revolutionary,” Kesha adds. “[The voters] use apps. You just download an app, it’s free, and then America gets to vote and it’s instantly gratifying. There’s no waiting for the results. You know in two minutes and thirty seconds if a contestant makes it or breaks it. And everybody at home can press yes or no. It’s so easy and so simple, and yet so genius using technology to the fullest.”
Kesha ‘Very Happy’ To Have Boyfriend In Her Life
Kesha also spilled all about her boyfriend!
“He’s really, a really sweet human being,” the singer raved about her beau Brad Ashenfelter. “I’m very happy to have him in my life. That’s way too much information for American to know. But I’m really happy with my beard.”
It sounds like Brad is the perfect match for Kesha (she even admitted that her favorite fan nickname is “Bradsha”), but she came clean and admitted that she likes dirty guys!
“I do, not like physically covered in dirt, but I just like them to be beardy and long hair and look like a little homeless,” she says. “I like guys who look like they don’t groom themselves. I’m not into guys who are very high-maintenance. I don’t want them to take longer to get ready than me.”
Well, we bet Kesha will sport some unique looks after she gets ready for Rising Star and we can’t wait to see her funky outfits on the stage!
