Ke$ha Directs Her “Dirty Love” Video, Doesn’t Need Iggy Pop

Finally, we have a bit of good news from the Ke$ha camp. After some of her more interesting collaborative projects were unceremoniously torpedoed without explanation, it’s certainly nice to see the star having a bit of fun.

Ke$ha has released a video for “Dirty Love” off her latest album Warrior, one that she has directed herself. You may remember the original version featuring Iggy Pop making a few easy sex jokes. He’s been wholly omitted this time, leaving the formerly facepalm-worthy middle section feeling a bit empty. Ke$ha does her best to fill the empty space with comically torn clothes and glammed-up bearded men swinging their hips.

Kicked off with a home video footage and concluded with a fun bit of a PSA, what comes in between is much what you’d expect of a Ke$ha video. Dirty dancing, little clothing, bearded dudes in drag, and boatloads of glitter abound, It feels like a snapshot of what a Ke$ha concert would be, sans screaming crowds and giant disco balls full of condoms.

At least she cleans up her mess at the end. As Ke$ha says, “Death by glitter. hope u like it.”
