Kesha said that she draws inspiration from late Jeff Buckley.
The 34-year-old musical artist, speaking with the Insane Clown Posse on the Kesha and the Creepies podcast, was chatting with the musical duo about drawing artistic influence ‘from the other side,’ as Violent J noted that at times, he gets an intuition from beyond while songwriting that is ‘connecting with the other side.’
Kesha responded, ‘I totally know what you’re saying – I had a friend of my mom’s tell me that Jeff Buckley was one of my spirit guides – do you know who Jeff Buckley is?’

She brought up the late musician, who died at the age of 30 on May 29, 1997 in the Mississippi River, with his body recovered in Memphis days later.
‘He covered a song – Who originally wrote that song? That Hallelujah, Hallelujah … do you remember that one?’ said Los Angeles native, whose full name is Kesha Rose Sebert.
She continued: ‘Well it’s a Leonard Cohen song, and he covered it and that was one of the most successful ones he had.’
The Tik Tok singer continued: ‘He had passed away and I’ve been told that he’s one of my spirit guides, so sometimes when I’m stuck on the song or I can figure something out, I swear some s*** comes out of me that I can’t take credit for that – I don’t know who can, but not me.’

The Rich, White, Straight Men artist and stalwart rap act discussed the supernatural aspects of creating material
Kesha told ICP that artistically, ‘You have to be this conduit for whatever message is coming’
The Rich, White, Straight Men artist and stalwart rap act were discussing the supernatural aspects of creating material, as Kesha said she’s ‘really into spirituality and being a crazy motherf***er’ and understands the unknown and its impact on artists.
She added: ‘I feel like sometimes I’m a conduit and all I have to do is open my brain up and almost just like empty it and be like “OK what do you want, what’s up?” I’m not really a religious person either.’
Kesha said that artistically, ‘You have to be this conduit for whatever message is coming, I don’t know if it’s a zeitgeist, I don’t know if it’s the universe, if it’s a God to some people.’
The Right Round songstress continued, ‘It’s this collective consciousness where you’re providing this place for people to feel at home with they see themselves in you, and by channeling whatever is coming out, like people are going to see that and feel more comfortable and more OK with themselves and just feel OK – I really do think the music makes people feel understood and OK.’
