Ke$ha Talks Inspiration For New Album And Book
November 26, 2012


Ke$ha
Ke$ha will release her new album Warrior on December 4, but the Pop singer also just put out a photo-book memoir, titled My Crazy Beautiful Life. In a new interview with MTV News, she says the book is essentially a companion piece to Warrior, including behind-the-scenes photos, as well as new lyrics and more.

"This book documents the entire process of the creation of Warrior, from the experiences I had on tour that turned into songs, to my spirit journey where I decided the direction and title of Warrior, through the day to day grind of making the album in the studio over the last year," she said. "The entire process of the creation of this album is in this book."

The lyrics to a new Warrior tune, "Love Into The Light," appear in My Crazy Beautiful Life and Ke$ha told MTV that the track is "a song that talks about how imperfections are what make life beautiful. Rather than try to cause divisions between people because of our differences and imperfections why don't we all let a little more love into the light. It's a subject that many people have written about, but I don't think it can be said enough."

As for the positive vibe of Warrior, she said, "When I came onto the scene I was just a wild party animal. I was broke, but I had a totally uninhibited and carefree lifestyle. I was so nave: at the beginning; I had no idea what I was in for. I was, in a sense, animal. I'm still an animal, but I've also learned a lot along the way. Seeing people all over the world sing words that I wrote back to me, when we don't even speak the same language, was a powerful experience. It really made me want to think hard about every word on this album and make sure that everything that I wrote was positive."
