“DJ, turn it up!” asks Ke$ha in her new let’s-go-ka-razy dance-pop song, “We R Who We R”, the lead single from her Animal companion album, Cannibal. She sure talks to the DJ a lot in her songs — maybe she’s the one who needs to speak up so he can finally hear her requests? Just a suggestion. Check out the new tune, which Ke$ha hopes will become a “pride anthem”, and tell us if the pop star’s antics should make anyone proud.
“Got Jesus on my neck-a-luss,” warbles Ke$ha on this party track, who also happens to be “selling our clothes, sleeping in cuurs, dressing it down, hitting on dudes — hard.” This song (which premiered online on MySpace) is a parody of itself.
The glittery gal (who happens to be a great inspiration for your Halloween costume, by the way) told Entertainment Weekly that she wrote “We R Who We R” in the wake of news reports about bullying that has led to several suicides of gay teens.
“I wanted to inspire people to be themselves,” says K-Dolla, whom also uploaded her own video for the “It Gets Better” viral campaign. “It’s a celebration of any sort of quirks or eccentricities.”
As for the rest of her new album, Ke$ha describes it as eloquently as she can. “It’s as fun as shit!”
What do you think of “We R Who We R”? And should pop stars no longer be allowed to mispell words in song titles so that they seem “hip” to today’s text-obsessed youth?
