It’s a little unclear if there is actually a competition going on between singers like Kesha and Miley Cyrus to see who can do either the raunchiest things or take off the most clothes, but that certainly seems to be the case. In Kesha’s newest music video, she takes off the majority of her clothes revealing a mesh top and g-string as she prances around.

In her latest, what she hopes to be hit, song titled, “Dirty Love,” the upstanding Kesha plays a stripper while performing. Now she does actually start out in a white t-shirt but it proves too much to handle to leave on when she rips it off revealing her exposing outfit.
Of course her pants come off and in effort to see how many lines she could cross, out come two cross-dressing men. Scarily, the men are seen wearing even less than the provocative Kesha.
As the three disturbingly parade around the stage, the video strangely cuts out to reveal what appears to be a man from 1965. In the video the man is seen telling viewers that Kesha is a “smut peddler,” and that her grotesque acts in the film are, “too obscene to show.”
Unfortunately the fictitious man of censorship doesn’t hold the power to end the video entirely as the three continue to frolic around on the stage. Soon the men take what appear to be beer bottles and shake them eventually hosing down the singer.
She opens her mouth allowing beer to enter where she can later be seen spitting it out at the men—or women, or whatever.
Kesha goes solo as she attempts to entertain a non-existant crowd leaving nothing much for the imagination. The singer falls flat when she tries to seduce by, “writhing around on all fours across the glitter-strewn stage and squatting on her heels with knees spread.”
The Daily Mail reports, “In a close-up shot, the singer flashes an obscene gesture with her hand while belting out her gritty lyrics, ‘I want your dirty f***n love!’”
The raunchy video finally ends to the ironic 1965 man again saying, “Smut peddlers do not have the right to contaminate our society – her clothes in the disarray of sexual activity with the stimulus of alcohol. Nothing is left to the imagination.” He continues by saying, “Even this required editing to be suitable to be shown in this film. The vast majority was too obscene to be shown.”
I would really hate to see the parts that had been edited out.
Of course as Kesha begins to develop the reputation of being a trashy girl she is quick to refute it. After singing in a previous song about brushing her teeth with whiskey, she was sure to let the public know, “People think I sit around and drink whiskey all day, but I couldn’t keep up on a three-month tour if I were getting hammered every night.”
She explains another portion of her lewd behavior saying, “My show is very energetic—I dance and sing at the same time and run around. Training for a tour is like training for a marathon. For me, I like showing off my legs because I work really hard on them. So you will rarely find me wearing pants.”
Good explanation—wink wink, nudge nudge. That makes total sense, we believe you now!
As the competition for raunchiest performer ensues, the rest of us continue to wonder what is so hard to keep your clothes on.
