So right now the interwebz is currently freaking out over NoPetsAllowd‘s mashup of Ke$ha’s “Die Young” and One Direction’s “Live While We’re Young.” The mashup is pretty genius — Ke$ha’s voice flows seamlessly with the guys’. It’s almost like they got together in the studio and made the mashup in perfect harmony. Can you imagine Ke$ha and the boys of 1D in the same room? Hairspray and glitter everywhere.
This mashup is so catchy that it might be (emphasis on might) better than the songs themselves. It’s basically impossible to get out of your head once you’ve heard it.
So I guess now we can add this mashup to the collection of Ke$ha-One Direction hybrids that have been circulating the internet, like SmadaLeinad‘s version. At some point our minds are going to melt from 1D-Ke$ha combinations. Just make a duet already.
Listen to the mashup here:
In Ke$ha’s new music video “Die Young” she plays a sexy cult goddess leading a hedonistic tribe of sex-crazed ruffians at the end of the world. It there’s one thing the leather-clad vagabonds like more than group makeup sessions with their fierce leader, it’s pentagrams. Lots and lots of pentagrams, a symbol for anything from religion to occult beliefs.
Ke$ha is carried from their getaway car (a Hearst) to an abandoned church in Mexico where they engage in SALACIOUSNESS, even though the rest of the world is flipping out about the apocalypse.
“Everybody else is kind of scared and hiding and we are running around like wild people, making out with each other and taking over a small border town in Mexico,” she told Capital FM. “The federalis are after us because we’re so wild!”
The new video can only be called tres “Ke$ha.” Would you join her cult?

Mega talented singer/songwriter Drew Tabor mashed up One Direction’s “Live While We’re Young” with Ke$ha’s “Die Young” and the acoustic version is pretty seamless.
I never really thought of it before but the two songs fit perfectly together, both musically and in terms of lyrics. This slowed down mashup has a campfire vibe and we can imagine listening to it on a chilled out weekday evening.
Drew wrote on YouTube that she’s in love with both the songs. We’re going to keep our eyes on her. In the meantime, her EP Glitter is available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. She also regularly updates her YouTube page with more covers.

You can tell from the first 30 seconds of Kesha’s new single “Die Young” that you’re probably going to hear it A LOT at rager house parties and neon-lit dance clubs in the next couple months. We’ve haven’t heard new music from Kesha in two years (sigh) but this was well worth the wait.
While the single has a summery vibe, I don’t think that’ll stop you from blasting it at home with your BFFs and indulging in Kesha’s drink of choice, whiskey. She sings: “I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums / It’s such a shame that you came here with someone / So while you’re here in my arms / Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young.”
The Dr. Luke produced single was also co-written by fun.’s Nate Ruess. Kesha described her upcoming album Warrior, which is out on Dec. 4, as having a distinctly cock rock sound — whatever that means.
