Kesha Recording 'F--k Off' Song with Mystery 'Casual' Grammy-Winning Pal
It's been a minute since Kesha updated us on the status of her next album, but she made up for it this week with a provocative Instagram post that has her fans wildly speculating. "Making a F--K OFF song with a casual Grammy award winning secret person," she wrote alongside a serious-looking selfie. "Got a good feeling about this one."
A spokesperson for the singer could not be reached at press time to answer Billboard's question about who the mystery collaborator might be, but that didn't stop fans from emphatically weighing in. Among their guesses: Taylor Swift or Ariana Grande, with Swift getting the most nods thanks to a number of fans' observation that Kesha put 13 emojis into her comment, a number that just happens to be Tay's favorite.
"emojis omg 13 - taylor's lucky number taylor - grammy award winner ------------ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤," read one of the more than 2,600 comments. A spokesperson for Swift had not returned requests for comment at press time.
Kesha is working on music for her first album of new material since 2012's Warrior, reportedly delivering 28 new songs to her label earlier this summer. No information is available yet on the music, which has been a long time coming in light of the singer's ongoing lawsuit against former mentor/producer and label boss, Dr. Luke (born Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald) over allegations that he drugged and raped her and psychologically abused her from the time she moved to Los Angeles in 2005 to pursue a music career through her breakthrough five years later; Luke has denied the charges and in August Kesha dropped her sexual assault claims in New York after earlier dropping them in California.
Swift has supported Kesha in her battle with Luke, donating $250,000 to the cause in February, to "help with any of her financial needs during this trying time." Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga have also stood up for Kesha, who went on a seven-date mini tour this summer during which she promised to play songs "you've never heard me play before, and songs I may never play again" with her new band, the Creepies.
