Ke$ha Anxious to Head Back on Tour


Before hitting the stage at NBA All-Star Weekend, Ke$ha talked to Billboard about touring soon and her forthcoming MTV documentary

Ke$ha may have headlined at the NBA’s 2013 All-Star Pregame show yesterday (Feb. 17), but don't count on her hooping any time soon. Really, she's not good. At all.

"I really suck at basketball actually," Ke$ha told Billboard backstage at Houston, Texas' George R. Brown Convention Center, before she performed there. However, she does have some NBA players that are fans of hers.

"I've seen multiple clips in the last couple of days of entire teams jumping around and dancing to one of my songs," Ke$ha mentioned, "which is really erotic to a woman to write a song [and] have an entire locker room full of men feeling it. That's pretty much the hottest thing that could happen. Then there's a guy here, um, Russell Westbrook. I saw a video of him singing to 'Die Young.' I'm really excited. I hope I can meet him."

There’s no word yet on if she ever ended up meeting the Oklahoma City Thunder guard, but what is for sure is that Ke$ha will be hitting the road soon. Though she couldn't mention the specifics just yet, Ke$ha is finalizing a concert schedule to support her “Warrior” album, which came out last December.

"I have plans to tour," she said. "They are very close to being solidified, but they're not all the way yet. So I can't give you dates. Hell yes. I can't wait. I love being on the road. I love being on stage. It's when I get to bring the music that I've been working on for months and months and months to life and connect to my fans. It brings it to life."

In January it was revealed that this April Ke$ha will release "Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life," a documentary shot by her brother Lagan Sebert, on MTV. Last week she made news in an interview by saying the doc will feature a scene where she drinks her own urine. That said, there is plenty more to pull from the movie.

"That's just one example of how this documentary is not bullshit," Ke$ha said. "I just want to show people what really goes on behind the scenes and get to know me better because my music is kind of like my life on steroids. I don't really write songs about the boring nights. I write about the wild nights. I spend a lot of time answering fan mail on the bus. And then there are nights that I go out and get shithoused and dance until the sun comes up."
