Kesha ventured into pop music to spite her mother.

Kesha ventured into pop music to spite her mother.

Kesha, don’t make me hand in my stan card for this. The singer reflected back on her roots and credits her mom, Pebe Sebert, who’s penned songs for some of country music’s most iconic artists like Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton, for helping shape the kind of songwriter she is today.



“My mom is a songwriter, an amazing country songwriter,” Kesha said via Fox News.

“So when I was 16, I decided to do the antithesis of country music which was like dance-pop music,” she continued.

“But then I decided recently that was silly.”

She added: “She taught me how to write songs. So growing up, I dealt with life by writing songs.”

The Internet isn’t quite sure how to feel about this. Either Kesha means rebelling against her mom in that way was silly, or all of her music pre Rainbow is silly. If it’s the latter, my heart hurts and my twenties were a lie.

  1. Who cares if she thinks those days were silly. The music IS silly. That doesn’t make it any less relevant or fun. I would expect her to grow up at some point…….. doesn’t her new outlook simply make sense at this point?
