The Morning Mix: Ke$ha Plans Live Concert For Flood Relief

Did You Hear?

:: Ke$ha announced that she’ll play a special benefit concert in Nashville (her hometown) to raise money for flood relief, while the Great American Country channel (GAC) will air a telethon featuring Lady Antebellum and Brad Paisley. No joke – send a few bucks to save Music City. [EW Music Mix]

:: Which was more offensive – “Can’t Be Tamed”, or that photo where she tried to look Asian? Check Miley Cyrus’ 10 Most Inappropriate Moments. [Celebuzz]

:: John Mayer was spotted playing tennis (and wearing short shorts) in Australia. We just can’t wait to read his witty comments about it on Twitter Tumblr. [Just Jared]

:: Fresh from melting our faces at the Coachella fest, British rock trio Muse will lead off the soundtrack for the next Twilight movie, Eclipse, with a new single called “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)”. Can we please create a Grammy category for song titles? [E! Online]

:: Fans create their own storyboards for Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro” video. Most of them are more engaging than #GagaOnIdol. [Popjustice]

    I heard. This is my response. Today, on Mother’s Day, I feel like saying, “Not My Problem.” I’m not going to say it, even if everyone else does, including Ke$ha. Because that would be wrong. The people in this country who are saying it about the folks struggling in Nashville, and other areas flooded, are wrong. There seem to be lots of people who just don’t care. The reason they don’t care is because they don’t get Nashville.

    Of course, Cash did not get Nashville at several points in his life. Flipped them, and country radio, off in an add in Variety. I think his response was wrong. I also think Nashville and country radio were wrong in their treatment of Cash. It is frequently the case that almost everybody is wrong.

    If Ke$ha wants to talk about aliens and family and fighting pretension, that is cool. If she wants to rebuild Nashville, cool. I support that.

    But, the problems Nashville and the rest of the country face were here before the flood. If she read what I wrote, which she does not, she says, I would have her consider her song “Not My Problem.”

    I do not know what she means when she says “Boo who?” and “Good luck with that?”
    I am not, as a certain five year old girl reminds me, constantly, very clever. I know I am not very clever. I‘m not clever enough to think you can wash the mud off of a city, and make it whole, without taking care of it’s soul. I would not be surprised if you could do both at once. Of course, in the context of “Not My Problem,” it is possible for even Ke$ha to not mesha with Ke$ha.

    So what if I love Boo? Or bring in my love for Miranda Lambert? Why would anyone want to stop real love? Nothing bad ever comes from real love. Ever.

    Happy Mother’s Day.

    Joy to you, Rose.
