Kesha's UFO Sighting Inspired New Album Cover Rainbow
Kesha has a good reason why she featured several spaceships on her Rainbow album and it's because she's experienced them first hand.
In an interview she recounted a sighting of multiple fireball orbs. She said the experience changed her forever.
"I was in Joshua Tree, totally sober, let me preface -- completely f---ing sober ... I think people would be like, 'She was on acid' or something. I wasn't. I was on nothing. I was a totally sober Sally, just a lady in the desert," Kesha said. "I look up in the sky and there's a bunch of spaceships."
"I swear to God, there were like five to seven, and I don't know why I didn't like try to take a picture of it -- I just looked at it. I was sitting on a rock, and I was like, 'What in the hell is that?' I was trying to figure it out, and then they went away. And then they came back."
The pop star went on to say that "they came back in a different formation" than the one they were in previously. "I was like, 'Those are f---ing aliens.' They were spaceships!"
"I just feel like a totally different artist -- and not in a good or bad way," the singer, who is now at a different point in life at 30, said. "I had a great time. The first record was super fun, and that's where I was at. This is where I am now."
Kesha's UFO sightings weren't the only thing that influenced her new album. Her experience in the music industry where she suffered emotional and physical abuse by her manager inspired the song Prayer.
