The album cover for Lotus (pictured below) portrays Christina rising naked from a blossoming lotus, suggesting a beautiful beginning – more specifically, since she’s been around long enough to have greatest hits album, a new beginning. A rebirth. I’m a fan of the idea of new beginnings at any stage in life, especially when life demands fight or flight.
“Die Young” is the lead single from Ke$ha’s second studio album, Warrior, due out in December. This has nothing to do with anything, but can I just say how much I love that the principal on Glee refers to Ke$ha as “Kee-Dollar-Sign-Ha” every time they do one of her songs? That cracks me up. And can I also say that I hate myself for how much I love this damn song?
