Ke$ha defends her FMF spot

Raising more than a few eyebrows the other week was the Future Music Festival 2011 lineup announcement which included the curious presence of dollar-signed trash popstar Ke$ha snuggled neatly next to dance legends like Leftfield and The Chemical Brothers.

Whilst ITMers were vocal in their reaction to Ke$ha’s inclusion, the pop-star herself has come out swinging in regards to her spot on the Future bill, saying that she’s ready to convert a few wary festival-goers while ‘bleeding’ for her art. And we use the term art loosely.

“Summer festivals just take it to that next level,” she explained to The Sydney Morning Herald. “You get to reach fans who wouldn’t necessarily go to one of your concerts but then they walk by and see your show. Festivals are just generally the biggest parties ever, so it only makes sense for me to be playing them.”

As for what those who dare poke their head into her show can expect when Ke$ha plays Future next year, the outspoken popper emphasised that her live setup “isn’t a pop show”, and that it takes “a lot of influence from my favourite bands that are not pop musicians, like The Beastie Boys and The Sex Pistols.”

“If I don’t literally rock out so hard that I feel like I’m going to vomit on myself by the end of the show, then I don’t feel like I’ve done a very good job,” Ke$ha explained as the world exploded. “Like at a show I played tonight, I started choking on glitter and my hands were bleeding. It was amazing…my favourite shows are the ones where I come off stage and I’m bleeding. I never know what’s going to happen. Tonight, I tried to crowd surf and some guy tried to stick his hand down my pants and I lost my shirt. That’s why I do this; I never know what’s going to happen up on that stage.”

Is it just us or does she just described sounds like a shit load of fun to watch?

So it would appear it took 6 people - including Ke$ha to pull this crap together...

There's a place downtown where the freaks all come around
It's a hole in the wall, it's a dirty free for all

When the dark of the night
Comes around that's the time
That the animal comes alive
Looking for something wild

N-now we lookin' like pimps in my gold Trans-Am
Got a water bottle full of whiskey in my handbag
Got my drunk text on, I'll regret it in the mornin'
But tonight, I don't give a, I don't give a, I don't give a

There's a place downtown where the freaks all come around
It's a hole in the wall, it's a dirty free for all
And they turn me on, when they take it off
When they take it off, everybody take it off

There's a place I know if you're looking for a show
Where they go hardcore and there's glitter on the floor
And they turn me on, when they take it off
When they take it off, everybody take it off

Lose your mind, lose it now
Lose your clothes in the crowd
We're delirious, tear it down
'Til the sun comes back around

Now we're getting so smashed, knocking over trash cans
E'erbody breaking bottles it's a filthy hot mess
Gonna get faded, I'm not the designated driver
So I don't give a, I don't give a, I don't give a

There's a place downtown where the freaks all come around
It's a hole in the wall, it's a dirty free for all
And they turn me on, when they take it off
When they take it off, everybody take it off

There's a place I know if you're looking for a show
Where they go hardcore and there's glitter on the floor
And they turn me on, when they take it off
When they take it off, everybody take it off

Oh, oh, oh
Everybody take it off
Oh, oh, oh
Everybody take it off

Right now, take it off
Right now, take it off
Right now, take it off
Oh

Right now, take it off
Right now, take it off
Right now, take it off
Everybody take it off

There's a place downtown where the freaks all come around
It's a hole in the wall, it's a dirty free for all
And they turn me on, when they take it off
When they take it off, everybody take it off

There's a place I know if you're looking for a show
Where they go hardcore and there's glitter on the floor
And they turn me on, when they take it off
When they take it off, everybody take it off



What demographic is this trash aimed at?
