Ke$ha: ‘I’m Going To Reinvent Pop Music’

Published: Tuesday 13th Sep 2011 by David

She is responsible for writing such hits as ‘Till The World Ends‘ by Britney Spears‘ and her very own ‘Your Love Is My Drug‘, yet Pop character Ke$ha has found cementing her status as one of Pop’s leading women both a difficult and tedious task time and time again.

However, it would appear the ‘Backstabber‘ entertainer is preparing to change all of that with her upcoming LP. For in a recent interview, she revealed that she not only plans to change her own sound but reinvent Pop music altogether.

More information below…

Speaking to the Calgary Herald, she confessed:

I want to take enough time to make sure it’s the reinvention of pop music, That’s the ultimate goal, to reinvent pop music. So I’m planning on taking as much time as I need, but May sounds about right.

    guess i can cross Kesha of the list of “Artists who declare they are going to change the game..then end up staying the same” list

  4. ERIC September 13, 2011

    WELL, AT LEAST SHE’S TAKING TIME! THE ONLY WAY SHE CAN REINVENT POP MUSIC IS BY USING CLASSICAL INSTRUMENTATION AND REAL INSTRUMENTATION. ALSO EPIC MELODIES AND NATURAL ELECTRONIC BEATS AND MUSICAL ARRANGEMENT.

    BUT I THINK NO-AUTO-TUNE IS WHAT SHE NEEDS TO REINVENT BOTH HERSELF AND POP MUSIC AS WE KNOW IT TODAY.

  5. ~Bey-utiful Nation~ September 13, 2011

    I guess…..

    true . but i really think you have to have something remarkable about you to change pop music you really have to be a student no a prodigy of music first(naturaly adept in playing instrunts,reading,music,melodies,vocals etc) and have alot of talent like MJ

  10. kIMBERLY September 13, 2011

    REINVENT IT KESHA. BUT DON’T COME BACK WITH THAT STUPID TECHNO POP PLEASE, IF THAT’S WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND. GIVE BRITNEY AND THESE OTHER LAME POP STARS RAW MUSIC NOT TECHNO POP. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. IF YOU CAN DO JUST THAT THEN GREAT. IF NOT RETIRE.
    TECHNO POP GIVES TOO MUCH ROOM FOR AUTO TUNE AND LIP SYNCING. LORD KNOWS HOW THE MUSIC INDUSTRY HAS TO GET THIS TECHNO POP S*** OUT!!!!!

  11. YEABEY WON’T DANCE 4 U September 13, 2011

    SHE NEVER SAID SHE WILL….SHE SAID SHE WANTS TO! GEEZ PEOPLE NEED TO LEARN TO READ THE BODY OF THE ARTICLE AND NOT JUST THE SHADY TOPICS!

    ANYWAY THIS STORY IS LIKE 3 WEEKS OLD!

  12. I’ma have to send her to her maker September 13, 2011

    I agree with Eric. Lol. But I like kesha’s songs. She can’t sing in my opinion but she definitely creates good music and that’s what the audience likes to hear.

  13. Aaliyah September 13, 2011

    I just can’t. Her second album and she’s already giving us and herself these great expectations. Just stop… She will NOT reinvent pop music.

  14. Put That On Everythang September 13, 2011

    GIRL BYE

  15. commanderofthedancefloor September 13, 2011

    she is just building up hype for her next album, no matter what i still want to listen to it, because animal wasn’t that bad, if she had dropped alot of the autotune those songs would be amazing.

  16. Thaye September 13, 2011

    I agree with all of this, but I still can’t take Eric seriously because he’s writing in caps lock. I imagine him screaming every word at the top of his lungs. Why do people do that, ugh.

  17. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) September 13, 2011

    can’t wait to see that ….

    At least she wanna have an impact on the music scene ! Not only caring about #1’s as a lot of artist do now ” including Rihanna” !

    exactly, also rihanna’s executive producer for loud or who ever it was, said that loud was rihanna’s thriller. i mean i am a huge rihanna stan and i lover her but there is no way in hell that loud even comes close to thriller. no shade

  20. YEABEY WON’T DANCE 4 U September 13, 2011

    @COMMANDEROFTHEDANCEFLOOR
    I heard about that LOUD/Thriller thing. I never took it seriously! I don’t like Ke$ha’s music but she wants 1 mil first week obviously so I’ll just let her do her! Who knows? she probably could change pop music! Tik Tok was the start for Katy’s California Girls and Miley’s Permanent December and other songs….just saying…

  21. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) September 13, 2011

    Well, I don’t think that she can re-invent pop at this point.She’s not even adequate to represent pop, let alone change it.However, if she grows well as an artist and as a person, she may actually pull off something amazing in the future.At the moment she’s not ready for something that huge; not with this image, this vision and this reputation.In the future, maybe.

    (Hey to everyone)

  22. commanderofthedancefloor September 13, 2011

    @YEA BEY WONT DANCE 4 U,

    lady gaga reinvented pop and she made it into the dance music, it would be interesting in seeing what type of music ke$ha will bring out if she truly plans to change pop. i remember her saying in another interview that her next album will be rock. her first single from the album will tell us if she has the ability to do it or not.

  23. GRAPEFRUIT JUICE September 13, 2011

    Lol. Here we go again. Knock urself out trying Ke$h darling

  24. TYLER September 13, 2011

    I’ll give her a chance… I want her to clean up her look and get her body right

  25. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) September 13, 2011

    @YEABEY (what’s up?) Well, ‘Just Dance’ and ‘Poker Face’ were the start for ‘Tik Tok’ and ‘Hung Up’ was the start for ‘Just Dance’ and ‘Poker Face’ and the list goes on and on and on.That’s how it works, I guess.Everything is the start of something else…

    @COMMANDEROFTHE DANCEFLOOR
    Yeah, I’m actually looking forward to this Rock/pop fusion that she’s planning on bringing! I want to see how it plays out

  28. THE UNIVERSITY OF GAGA (IS†ANN4GAGA) September 13, 2011

    The headline seems shady,but it’s just hype (like Gaga was doing when she said that BTW was album of the decade.) I don’t REALLY pay attention to hype that much.I just pay attention to the snippets,etc…….

  29. THE UNIVERSITY OF GAGA (IS†ANN4GAGA) September 13, 2011

    BTW,I think I saw a FLOP troll from this forum on Gagadaily…….”I’m not going to release any names…….

  30. YEABEY WON’T DANCE 4 U September 13, 2011

    @ASAP
    HEY!
    I agree with you where you said Tik Tok was started by Lady Gaga’s previous work! But in terms of rapping (or talking in rhythm) on a bubblegum pop beat, That was something Ke$ha kind of trademarked! Which is why artists like Dev and the New Nicki Minaj is being compared to Ke$ha…

  31. THE UNIVERSITY OF GAGA (IS†ANN4GAGA) September 13, 2011

    I did see comparisons between Just Dance and Tik Tok……I don’t really compare Dev (largely because I haven’t listened to her music. yet.) but I can see Ke$ha being compared to KREAYture due to the fact that they rap over pop beats………..

  32. LoveMC September 13, 2011

    @AALIYAH Shut up, its her third album…… Kesha Go Go GO!!

  33. THEMAN September 13, 2011

    Ke$ha is cool and awkward in her own way lol. Lots of artists say they are going to reinvent this and that but it’s nothing more than material that has been mixed up with a little bit of this and that.

  34. Corey September 13, 2011

    I don’t mind Kesha or her music, so I’m excited to see what’s up her sleeves. She’s a lot talented than people give her credit for.

  35. Robier September 13, 2011

    Trash has already been invented

  36. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) September 13, 2011

    @YEABEY Hmm…What about Fergie and Gwen??They were singing more but they also pulled off the “Kesha” thing before Ke$ha!And I really miss Mixtape Nicki.Some of the lyrics on ‘Pink Friday’ are pretty good (“Dear Old Nicky”) but her mixtapes were on a much better level.Btw, I will admit that Katy Perry SHAMELESSLY ripped off the ‘Tik Tok’ beat for ‘California Gurls’.But that wasn’t about Ke$ha being a trendsetter either, it was mostly about Dr.Fluke repeating himself. (no Ke$ha hate)

  37. YEABEY WON’T DANCE 4 U September 13, 2011

    @ASAP
    Understandable! I like the old nicki better too! Yesterday I said that on ATRL and of her stans were trying to drag me…Poor soul…

  38. MISHKA September 13, 2011

    Girl,

    Just put your $hit out and we will tell you if you’re reinventing $tuff, mmkay?

  39. D.Strock September 13, 2011

    If a good artist is characterized as being innovative, then technically it should be every artist’s goal to “reinvent pop music”. I didn’t see her actually quote “I am going to reinvent pop music”, just that it is her goal.

  40. Bey love on top September 13, 2011

    Wow You guys can’t be that Delusional Her Debut Animal+Cannibal has set a trend for pop music Britney (TTWE and yes she wrote it but didn’t produce it) Katy (LFN. Circle the drain) and many more has taken from her hate her or love her this girl got what it takes I love how she makes Pop music fun again! She is unique You can INSTANTLY say when listening to the radio That’s a KE$HA song Cus she stands out! She has proven she got what it taked

  41. THE UNIVERSITY OF GAGA (IS†ANN4GAGA) September 13, 2011

    OLD Nicki was better

    @ASAP

    In defense of Katy Perry’s California Girls…I think it’s the producer (Dr Luke,Max Martin,Benny Blanco) giving them the same material.Think about it…why do you think “Right Round” (a Flo-Rida song) sounds like I Kissed a Girl part two?????

  42. Bey love on top September 13, 2011

    Your love. Right thru me. Moment 4life. Did it on em. Fly Are all R&b urban (Fly reminds of Love the way you lie. Coming home etc type of song) when nicki does a lil Pop she suddenly a pop singer! Giiirl bye you just a hater or a kim stan!

  43. THE UNIVERSITY OF GAGA (IS†ANN4GAGA) September 13, 2011

    Nvr mind,I seen the part of Dr Luke repeating himself….I wish these producers would stop making all their stuff sound basically the same…..

    RedOne did it on four of Lady Gaga’s songs (Money Honey,Just Dance,Boys Boys Boys,Poker Face.)

    David Guetta did it on “S*** B****” and “Where dem Girls at”

    Dr Luke did it on Kesha’s “Tik Tok”,Katy’s “California Gurlz”,Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” and Flo Rida’s “Right Round”

    And for some reason Rihanna’s “Te Amo” sounds KINDA like Ne-Yo’s “Miss Independent”

  44. Bey love on top September 13, 2011

    Right round Sounds like I kissed a Gorl wtf lmaooo it does not

  45. THE UNIVERSITY OF GAGA (IS†ANN4GAGA) September 13, 2011

    @Bey Love on top

    The Instrumentals do……..(At least that’s what I think)

  48. Thaye September 13, 2011

    “Right Round sounds like I Kissed A Girl”?

    Lol. First of all it does not, not even remotely imo. They have an almost identical bpm, but that’s about it.

    And also, you would rather have to say that “I Kissed A Girl” sounded like “Right Round” if you wanna compare them and be technical about it. Don’t forget that “Right Round” was just a cover of Dead Or Alive’s original song from the 80’s, and for Flo Rida’s version, Doctor Luke just took Dead Or Alive’s chorus and the beat as it was and added state of the art synths and production to it.

  49. THE UNIVERSITY OF GAGA (IS†ANN4GAGA) September 13, 2011

    I know it’s a sample…..”it sounds like it to me though…..”

  50. Thaye September 13, 2011

    PS @ BEY LOVE ON TOP:

    Except for I Kissed A Girl/Right Round, I agree with everything you wrote about Ke$ha! No harm done among fellow Ke$ha fans I hope. I can’t wait to hear new music from her, excited and a little anxious for it.

  51. Thaye September 13, 2011

    @ THE UNIVERSITY OF GAGA (IS†ANN4GAGA)

    Seems like I mixed you two up. Whatever.

  52. Bey love on top September 13, 2011

    @YEHBEY seriously? What you gonna do? Punch me threw the screen? Girl stop taking “Cyber World” so serious smdh Ppl need to realize there’s more to life than a Computer screen

  53. NATALIE September 13, 2011

    B**** PLEASE! I guess Tra$ha was stoned (as usual) in this interview. :rolleyes:

  54. THE ICONIC LACEFRONCE RETURNS. September 13, 2011

    LMAOOOOOOOOO!

    Is this h** SERIOUS???? Her music is pure GARBAGE with no substance…reinvent pop music…for the WORSE???? Please spare us!

    Pop music went down the SHITTER when the King died in 2009! Now look what were left with.

    LACEFRONCE has spoken.

  55. THE UNIVERSITY OF GAGA (IS†ANN4GAGA) September 13, 2011

    LACEFRONCE has spoken pure NONSENSE as usual…..

  56. bey’knight September 13, 2011

    sounds like she’s pulling a Gaga, look if u really working on reinventing pop music, u dont need to say it interview esp months b4 said music hits listeners’ ears. the music shd speak for itself at least then if u fail noone’s gonna call u out as a failure and ur untention would appear more genuine

  57. ohh September 13, 2011

    she must be reinventing pop instrumentals cause her voice is doing nothing at all for me.

  58. I’ma have to send her to her maker September 13, 2011

    Nicki Minaj and kesha do not rap anything alike. Nicki has been rapping the same since 08. No one even heard of kesha then til 2009.

  59. i’m a billy goat…baa September 13, 2011

    Ke$ha honey,

    DELUSIONS of GRANDEUR is a well documented and treatable disorder!! Until the doctor arrives please have SEVERAL SEATS!!

    I think its hilarious that an “artist” can produce one semi-successful CD and now think they can “reinvent” an entire genre of music! ……….pssss why is she famous again??

  60. Gilberto September 13, 2011

    I really hate when artists say that they’re gonna reivent themselves or make something totally new and fresh because everytime this happens it turns into more of the same.
    Anyway, her “reinvention” can by anything, from new producers to stop using autotone.
    I think she really needs to change, Britney Spears has been swagger jacking Ke$ha’s songs, style and music videos.

  61. Gilberto September 13, 2011

    What? Did I call Ke$ha an artist? LOL.

  62. Paul September 13, 2011

  67. Teacher September 13, 2011

    When he compared LOUD to THRILLER he ddnt mean it wuld be equal 2 or greater than that album, he meant that each song on the album could be potential hits if released, just like every song on thriller had hit potential. No filler songs!

  68. Bey love on top September 14, 2011

    @YEHBEY wow That’s it? Anyway Yes I’m using 1 to But I bet my left leg that you on evry post on TGJ

  69. crack0back0 September 15, 2011

    tired

  70. Dudeguy September 18, 2011

    Honestly…

    I have high hopes for the new album. She does have more talent than people give her credit for. She has credit for writing SOME part of EACH and every one of her songs. So you have to acknowledge that, at least. As far as producers…well, I think it depends who she works with as to what her sound will be like. Her vocals aren’t going to change unless she learns to sing better and takes off the autotune. Some Dr. Luke + Max Martin songs should sound great, as long as they can pull off the “c*** rock” sound she is after. I’d also really love to see her work with Skrillex, because his style is right up her alley!
