Well, at least a pre-planned surprise. I doubt she snuck into Coachella disguised as a member of Guy Fieri’s donkey sauce entourage, then paid a roadie $20 and a half-eaten Fritzi Dog to look the other way while she grabbed a mic and ran on stage. As expected, Kesha performed a song during Zedd’s set at Coachella on Saturday night. FYI: Zedd was the guy who was accused of faking a relationship with Selena Gomez to sell records by fellow iTunes jockey Diplo.
Kesha, who appears to be dressed as Instagram’s interpretation of Stevie Nicks, performed “True Colors“. I don’t know much about the law, so I started to get a little worried about Kesha’s mouth singing a song that wasn’t recorded in a Sony studio. But that whole thing with Kesha’s contract is about her not being allowed to record new music; she’s still free to sing as many covers as she wants.
As you can hear through Kesha’s best impression of Florence from Florence and The Machine, it’s not a cover of the “True Colors” we all know and love and have sung into the straw of our cherry limeade from Sonic while driving. It’s actually the title song off Zedd’s 2015 album of the same name. The lyrics of which are all about not apologizing and “having masters” and “the truth.” Hmmm….I wonder who she could have been singing about? I guess we’ll only know for sure if Dr. Luke climbs on a Coachella stage next weekend, grabs a mic, and does an improvised cover of No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” called “Stop Speaking Please, It Makes Me Look Bad.”
Here’s Kesha giving me all-grown-up prom night baby of Trixie Mattel and a Sleestak (that’s a compliment, btw) while arriving at LAX on Friday.
