Taylor Swift has always been open about the guys in her life, even if that means calling them out by name in her lyrics. It seems that fellow chart-topping pop singer Ke$ha has the same motto when it comes to writing her songs, even if they are quite different from the ones Swift writes.
For her upcoming debut album, Animal, Ke$ha penned “Stephen,” a song about a guy who wouldn’t give her the time of day. “I’m really excited for people to hear the song called ‘Stephen’ that I wrote about this guy that I’ve been stalking since I was, like, 15, but he’s a total loser, so I don’t want to glorify him in any way,” she told MTV News about the track’s inspiration. “But I’m really excited for the song.”
Ke$ha said Stephen didn’t have to do much, if anything, to get her all worked up, but in the end, it all worked out for her. “He wouldn’t call me, and I could not wrap my brain around why he wouldn’t call me,” she said. “That was a victorious mission in the end. Ha! I have the last laugh.”
So is there any way the two blond singers could unite and call out all the guys who have wronged them on one epic track? Ke$ha isn’t against the idea.
“Oh, I love her! Yes! I would totally collaborate with her,” she said. “But I think I would scare her, to be honest. … But yeah, I really love, love the way she writes, because you can tell it’s real and you can tell it’s honest, so I do think there’s that similarity in our writing styles. You can tell she’s talking about a very specific situation, and you know it’s real.”
