Faux Bisexual Ke$ha, who is burning up the charts with TiK ToK and whose newish single Blah Blah Blah is sure to be just as big, talked to the Advocate about her sexuality and the LGBT community in general. Ke$ha is rapidly becoming known for saying and doing outlandish things, such as saying David Spade is hot and making out with the out and fabulous Adam Lambert. I do put her in the category of Faux Bisexual Celebrity (along with Lady Gaga, but not Fergie) because (like Lady Gaga) she has [probably] never had sex with a woman just “made out with them.” Her bisexuality seems to be more of a political/personal statement than anything else. Which I don’t mean as an insult, because she’s doing a great job of including the LGBT community into her mainstream career. Ke$ha is particularly focused on the trans community at the moment. Which is a community that is almost never invited to the party unless we are talking about the more comercially viable drag queens, not the people who truly live the trans experience every day of their lives. She says to the Advocate:
What draws you to the gay community?
I just think that gay men have much better taste than any straight man I have met. I have never gotten any grief about having a good time, being unapologetic, and irreverent from a gay man. And let’s be honest, sometimes I wish I was a gay man.
Trust me, it only looks greener on the other side. Beyond just gay men, you have a particular interest in the transgender community. Your not-yet-released music video for “Backstabber” was cast almost entirely with transgender people.
I am a huge fan of the transgender community. I am so not a proper, good female. I can’t dance in high heels and I’m just so not girly, but then I see these men with these banging bodies, dancing in heels, singing, and having so much fun with so much makeup on. That makes me honestly want to be a better woman. It is so fascinating that someone can commit their whole entire lifestyle to being such a fantastic woman when I’m such a bum about it.
You’ve been quite vocal about the inspiration behind your song “Party at a Rich Dude’s House” being about a time you threw up in Paris Hilton’s closet. Is there anyone else’s closet you would like to get into?
I definitely want to raid and hang out in Keith Richards’s closet. I want to see what’s in there and think it would be fascinating, like going into a museum. Also there is this tranny in Los Angeles named Detox Icunt. She was in my “Backstabber” video, and I have always wanted to raid her closet. I think that would be a lot of fun with lots of glitter and neon colors.
Ke$ha also reveals that she will be playing Dinah Shore and will possibly make out with a hot girl that she meets there (good luck ladies, if she picks you, be sure to write into LGR and tell us about it!) and she will also be playing Lillith Fair this summer.
