I’m sorry, but I don’t understand the hows and whys of music anymore. I know that Kesha is one of those super deep thinkers so I know she’s trying to send some sort of message by sharing a photo of herself topless, but since that’s pretty much been the M.O. for so many other female singers out there as a way to sell albums it may have just gone over my head.
Kesha captioned the photo below, “I just really fucking love being a woman and I wanted an anthem for anyone else who wants to yell about being self-sufficient and strong. (yes, men, this song can be for you too). Read My Letter here: Link in Bio.” (The link in her bio leads to her music video, so…? Watch the video?)
I don’t know, make of that what you will. I am pretty sure it doesn’t have anything to do with her getting snubbed by Jerry Seinfeld, but I could be totally off. Kesha’s done this topless thing before and I didn’t get it then either.
Here’s the video, maybe it will explain things. The song’s key lyric is “I’m a motherfucking woman” if that helps any.
Oh, here we go. Kesha wrote something for Rolling Stone about it…
I was really feeling that conviction one particular day while I was stuck in traffic on my way to the studio and out of nowhere I felt the urge to scream, “I’m a motherfucking woman.” By the time I got the the studio, I was chanting “I’m a motherfucking woman.” The two men I was writing with that day didn’t quite know what to do with me. I proclaimed again: “I’m a motherfucking woman”! Then Drew Pearson got on the piano and Wrabel started laughing. I told them, I’m not fucking with you – this is the mood I’m in – and this is the song we are writing today.
That day in particular I felt like I had earned the right call myself a motherfucking woman. I have always been a feminist, but for much of my life I felt like a little girl trying to figure things out. In the past few years, I have felt like a woman more than ever. I just feel the strength and awesomeness and power of being female. We hold the key to humanity. We decide if we populate the Earth, and if so, with whom. We could just decide not to have any more kids and the human race would be over. That is power. I just really fucking love being a woman and I wanted an anthem for anyone else who wants to yell about being self-sufficient and strong. (Yes, men, this song can be for you too.)
I still don’t get it. Anyway, here’s the photo I was talking about along with some other stuff she’s shared recently…
