If you haven't already heard of current pop sensation Ke$ha chances are you will in the coming months. She has emerged as the current pop princess, breaking records set by Lady Gaga and Susan Boyle. She currently has the # 1 album and song in America and has two songs in the top 10. Although it seems like her explosion on to the pop scene happened over night, it turns out she's been lurking in the back ground of pop culture for a few years now.
She first appeared in an episode of The Simple Life which was a "reality show" starring Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. She appeared on this episode with her entire family including her mother who is a famous songwriter in Nashville focusing primarily on Country music which is interesting if you consider the speculation on mind control in Country music and the image Ke$ha is now using.
According to Ke$ha she became friends with Paris Hilton based on her appearance in the show and she became a session singer for Hilton when she bagan recording her flop debut album. They eventually had a falling out but Ke$ha remained in Hollywood and made some notable friends that would help in advancing her career.
One of the friends Ke$ha made in Hollywood was then up and coming singer Katy Perry who is known for her kitten symbolism. Ke$ha appeared in Katy's debut music video "I Kissed a Girl".
Ke$ha and Katy became friends based on their association with producer Dr. Luke who produced "I Kissed a Girl". Based on the success of Katy Perry, Dr. Luke was called in to produce the most annoying song of the last... well, ever. That song was "Right Round" by Flo Rida. Ke$ha is the annoying chick singing on the chorus. So now we know who is producing these horrible songs. Between Dr. Luke and RedOne I don't know who's worse. Eventually Ke$ha recorded her own album with Dr. Luke and the rest is history.
Not surprisingly Ke$ha has emerged with the usual symbolism associated with these pop princesses. Her debut album is titled Animal which is a pretty common theme. Female singers have been symbolized as animals, most notably cats, for decades. This symbolism is shown in the picture above by Ke$ha's leopard print pants. Her debut single "Tik Tok" also plays into that animal feel as the subject matter is very similar to Lady Gaga's "Just Dance". The song is pretty much about partying, getting wasted, and letting go.
In the photo above the standard one eye symbolism is displayed. Skeptics will say this is just a coincedence and means absolutely nothing. Let's take a look at some other photos of this young lady.
This photo was used for the cover of her single "Tik Tok".
No one eye here but I decided to post it based on the animal print clothing.
I could go on all day but let's not.
Ke$ha seems to be exposing the same eye that Lady Gaga often did when she first came out.
She's now being instructed to expose the other eye as pointed out in One Eye of Horus. This is the same eye used by bigger stars such as Jay-Z, Madonna, and Bono. A sign of Gaga's increasingly important position in the industry?
If Ke$ha becomes a more important star I'm sure we'll see her using this same symbolism. I guess I'll have to keep an eye on her.
