Ke$ha: Penis motif is fun
Published 15/08/2013 | 10:32
Ke$ha chose a penis motif for her jewellery line as she wanted to inject some humour into accessories.
The controversial star has released a 140 piece line of jewellery called Kesha Rose by Charles Albert.
Rather than use traditional materials, the collection was hand crafted into human teeth, skulls, arrowheads, roses, and phalluses made from hypoallergenic Alchemía.
Ke$ha shared which pieces are her personal favourites and the reason she chose the penis motif to feature so prominently in the line.
“My favourite piece is probably the teeth, moulded after ones my fans have sent me. I wear all of it, all the time. The blue roses are the most personal because that line (Blue Rose) is named after my brother whose middle name is Blue, and my mom whose name is Rose (which is my middle name, too),” she explained to Fashionista.com.
“I mean, come on. I love boys and I love penises. It’s natural that I’d want to adorn my body with them. And in anything I do, I think it’s important to have some humour. [I made it from Alchemía because] I love that I can make stuff that my fans can afford, and I also love that it’s adjustable.”
The Warrior popstar says designing accessories was a natural move for her. She added that the range is accessible for all kinds of people, not just extroverts.
“It was a natural next step for me. I am obsessed with jewellery, especially natural stones, and it just made sense for me to eventually make my own. I also love the metaphysical properties of many of the stones we are using,” she continued.
“There is something for everyone in my line. Smaller, daintier pieces for those who want to dress up but not go too crazy, and big chunky ones for those who want to make a bold statement.”
Ke$ha’s next fashion project will see her move into clothing. She revealed what we can expect from her next collection.
“I’m currently working on my faux fur line which I’m super excited about,” she finished.
