#tbt: Goodbye — Kesha

I’m feeling some major love for our girl Kesha (minus the $ now y’all) lately, and I think we might be getting close to a new album soon? I mean look at these lovely pastels here and here!

Sometime after Kesha’s debut album, this acoustic ditty leaked, showing us that our girl is a lot more than a turn-up-for-what, pop wonder. Sans autotune. Sans crazy synth beats. “Goodbye” gives us a deep look into Kesha’s heartache without the distraction of all the music. 

This song is slow and mellow, with a hint of southern twang; It meshes well with Kesha’s heartwrenching lyrics and it’s a good suggestion of what her third album might sound like. We could be looking at a girl who’s ditched brushing her teeth with Jack Daniels, in exchange for more meaningful songs: “But I’m really happy ‘cause I’m exploring myself like I’ve never explored myself before.”

Sure, we’ll probably still get a few good pop songs, maybe some weird ones, but I think now that we have a new, fully-realized Kesha who’s in charge of her own self (instead of her shitty ex record label), we can expect phenomenal things.

Pharrell Williams - Come Get it Bae

In all honesty, we’re not sure what Pharrell Williams is trying to accomplish in this forgettable music video.

It strikes us, in many ways, as the antithesis of John Legend’s empowering video that we wrote about last week. For one, the video begins heavy handedly. I mean, “BEAUTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE” is about as fluffy as philosophical maxims can get. And then Pharrell features women of varying ethnicities and ages, avoiding featuring more unconventional beauties of size or gender. The video is unable to shirk the male gaze; we look at the women through his eyes and their dancing (despite the carefree smiles) is quite literally mirrored for the cameraman.

And while I always appreciate a Miley cameo, her comedic appearance clashes so heavily with the video that it isn’t only out of place, it’s ridiculous.

So, are we happy? No, not really.
