Spooky activism or good music from Kesha? What about both?!?

Kesha has released a new song, in PRIDE month and in it, she is asking the what if rich, white, straight men didn’t rule the world anymore?

Kesha Rose Sebert (formerly stylized as Ke$ha) is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, and actress. In 2005, at age 18, Kesha was signed to Kemosabe Records. Her first major success came in early 2009 after she was featured on American rapper Flo Rida’s number-one single “Right Round”.

Kesha’s music and image propelled her to immediate success. She has earned two number-one albums on the US Billboard 200 with Animal (2010) and Rainbow (2017), and the number-six record Warrior (2012). She has attained ten top-ten singles on the US Billboard Hot 100, including “Blah Blah Blah”, “Your Love Is My Drug”, “Take It Off”, “Blow”, “Die Young”, “My First Kiss” with 3OH!3, and the chart-topping “Tik Tok”, “We R Who We R”, “Right Round” with Flo Rida, and “Timber” with Pitbull. “Tik Tok”, at one point, was the best-selling digital single in history, selling over 16.5 million units internationally. She has written songs for other artists, including “Till the World Ends” for Britney Spears.

Kesha’s career was halted between Warrior and Rainbow due to a legal dispute with her former producer Dr Luke, which has been ongoing since 2014. A series of lawsuits, known collectively as Kesha v. Dr Luke, were exchanged between the two parties in which Kesha accused him of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse and employment discrimination against her, while Dr Luke claims breach of contract and defamation by Kesha. Kesha has received several awards and nominations, including her win for the MTV Europe Music Award for Best New Act in 2010. As of November 2013, she has reportedly sold over 59 million records in the United States and 76 million records worldwide.

On June 2, 2019, Kesha released a song titled “Rich, White, Straight, Men” just in time for PRIDE month!

“Twinkle, twinkle little star, how I wish the world was different… where who you love and who you are was nobody’s fucking business!”

Watch the video below:

[Verse 1]
You could ride a unicorn to school
And if you fall off, you’d have healthcare
(No, you don’t)
And if you finish school, you’d go to college for free
That makes sense and that’s fair
(No, it’s not)
And if you were a lady
Then you own your lady parts
Just like a man goes to a dealership
And then he owns a car

[Refrain]
Vroom, vroom
Fuck you (Fuck you)

[Pre-Chorus]
What if life as we knew it was over?
Guess what? God is a woman, I know her

[Chorus]
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn’t rule the world anymore?
(Hahahahahahahahaha)
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn’t rule the world anymore?
(Hahahahahahahahaha)

[Verse 2]
If you’re from another land, then come here
You won’t have to climb a wall
(Yes, you will!)
And if you are a boy who loves a boy
You’ll get a wedding cake and all
(Not in Colorado!)
And if you are a lady and you do your lady work
Then you will make as many dollars as the boys
Not just two thirds

[Refrain]
Cha-ching
Fuck you (Fuck you)

[Pre-Chorus]
What if life as we knew it was over?
Guess what? God is a woman, I know her

[Chorus]
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn’t rule the world anymore?
(Hahahahahahahahaha)
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn’t rule the world anymore?
(Hahahahahahahahaha)

[Bridge]
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wish the world was different
Where who you love and who you are
Was nobody’s fucking business

[Chorus]
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn’t rule the world anymore?
(Hahahahahahahahaha)
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn’t rule the world anymore?
(Hahahahahahahahaha)
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn’t rule the world anymore?
(Hahahahahahahahaha)
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn’t rule the world anymore?
(Hahahahahahahahaha)

[Outro]
What if…?
