Despite the timing, the singer announced earlier this week (July 19) that he planned to get off the social media platform well before the acting gig. Posting a photo of himself hand-in-hand with his manager, he wrote:
"Last i'll say on this. I came off Twitter Coz I was always intending to come off Twitter, had nothing to do with what people said about my game of thrones cameo, because I am in game of thrones, why the hell would I worry what people thought about that. It's clearly f—– awesome. Timing was just a coincidence." Check out the full posthere.
During the chat, one of the questions she was asked was if her obsessive fans ever "cross the line," and she agreed wholeheartedly, saying, "They f** have" and went on to share one of the craziest stories.
"Someone stole both my cars. All the scary s*** I've had people in my house for sure, and I didn't know they were there while I was there. I ... called the police. I locked the door." Read morehere.
It usually takes me a long time to write a song. I'm talking dozens and dozens of hours. I'll sit around, ponder the message, the musical ideas, making sure everything is squeaky clean. On this occasion, it probably took me less than an hour. The story is autobiographical. The day after it happened, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I had to write a song. I had no choice. I went to a favorite coffee shop in Nashville and wrote -- pretty much all of the words and melody came out right then and there. I did very little editing.
One thing I'm proud of in this song is the balance of composition and improvisation. The first half of the recording is intricately arranged. Everyone's parts are mapped out. After I'm done singing, everything is improvised (except the ending). I'd like to think that the song has both a deliberateness and spontaneity to it. A sense focus in the words and musical ideas, but a sense of liveliness in the performance. It's hard to make recorded music feel alive -- circumstance and technology often work against you in that way. I feel like we beat the system. That the rawness I felt in that coffee shop can be felt in the recording.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the albumright here!

"It's pretty self-explanatory," Kesha laughed as she explained the process. "You just get naked and roll around in some glitter. I actually had a team of people helping me re-apply because I was running in and out of the ocean. At one point I was just laying on the ground and my mom was just dumping buckets of glitter on me."
"I will never lose my love of glitter," she continued. "I feel like that should put my fans at ease a little bit." Kesha also addressed the red carpet moment she had with Jerry Seinfeld, admittedly one of her idols, at the Night of Laughter & Song at the Kennedy Center on June 5th.here.
