Kesha brings her supernatural explorations from the podcast recording studio to the big screen with a new Discovery + Reality series in which the pop star and various celebrity guests and paranormal experts travel to “mind-boggling” haunted places. The six-hour episodes of the show, tentatively called Conjuring Kesha, are slated for release next year. The singer / songwriter reportedly referred to the project as a “creepy bucket list” (which would make a good song title too).
In addition to host a podcast on “supernatural themes and alternative lifestyles”, that is of course the title Kesha and the CreepiesKesha also once claimed in an interview that her 2012 single, Supernatural, “is about experiences with the supernatural, but in a sexy way.” In other words, it’s inspired by a time she fucked a ghost. “I don’t know his name” Kesha said about the alleged paranormal penetration. “He was a ghost!” “I’m very open to it,” she added. Kesha is in good company as a number of celebrities have stories of intimate encounters with ghosts – perhaps most famously Lucy Liu, who reportedly described her sexual encounter with a ghost as “sheer bliss.” a 1999 Us Weekly interview.
In a statement about the show, Kesha says:
“In the course of my life I have always been drawn to the supernatural and the spiritual realm. Making music, I felt, was a cosmic connection between my soul and something bigger than me that I couldn’t explain.
In this new show, I’ll be taking my friends to some of the most mysterious paranormal hotspots to explore with me. We will explore the great secrets of life and try to capture something never seen before with the camera. My hope is to show that the supernatural is not just made up of myths and fables. We embark on a spiritual and cosmic exploration. Come with me to experience it all. “
But what exactly does Kesha want to “experience”? The description of the series is vaguely New Agey, but it’s not even clear what aspect of the strange and supernatural Kesha is exploring. Will Kesha go ghost hunting with her famous friends? Or are they looking for evidence of aliens like Demi Lovato? Or is it more spiritual / religious and the plan is to observe exorcisms and rituals?
Kesha’s Instagram post about the show is just as unhelpful, though it does make it clear that what it’s apparently looking for is “EVIDENCE for” something more “. I hope she finds it!
