Pop star Kesha is out with a new song blasting the intersectional left’s number one, most-hated target – or, as Rolling Stone excitedly reported, “Kesha Rids the World of ‘Rich, White, Straight Men’ on New Track.” The artist formerly known as Ke$ha posted the song literally titled ‘Rich, White, Straight, Men’ on YouTube on Sunday, apparently without the approval of her record label. The video accompanying the song is just a repeated loop of Kesha giving the camera the middle finger, which makes it the most honest depiction of the entertainment industry’s attitude toward middle America I’ve ever seen.
The midterm elections are less than two short weeks away, so showbiz proggies have doubled down on the pro-Democratic rhetoric. In order to market to the young, hip listeners out there, Billboard featured a spread of famous musicians’ reasons for voting this November. Would it be too obvious to say that that their opinions skew radically left-wing and anti-Trump?
The beauty of writing this column is that I’m almost beyond being shocked. The alt-left has successfully blurred the line between crazy (cray-cray for you younger folks) and conventional. So I wasn’t even especially shocked when I read this: “Fed Up With Mortal Men, Women Are Having Sex with Ghosts.” It’s not even a funny/punny headline. There’s no “ghost of a chance” comment deployed. No “give up the ghost” or “smells like teen spirit.” (The image comes from a Colbert Report story on ghosts allegedly having sex with each other, but the graphic was funny, so here it is. You try and find a ghost sex image.)
Pop stars are not always great political stars. Americans for Responsible Solutions - a super-PAC focused on gun control and prevention and founded by former Re. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband, Mark Kelly, hosted one of several events on Tuesday during the Democratic National Convention. One of those events was a concert featuring pop singer Kesha, who used the opportunity to speak in support of gun control....with a few F-bombs.
At one time kids had posters of their favorite artists on bedroom walls. Today’s kids will have pictures of their favorite artist on their condom wrappers. Multi-platinum selling Ke$ha will have her image imprinted on 10,000 “special edition” condoms.
