    Hi everyone. New posting here so, treat me like a professional.

    Felt like posting about Kesha playing a Fender Telecaster in this promotional video for Fender.

    At about the 0:32 mark she is seen playing a butterscotch blonde Fender Telecaster. Not sure if she does own one, or if it is just a prop. But I did post about her owning a Squier Stratocaster and a Fender Duo Sonic on Strat-Talk.com: https://www.strat-talk.com/threads/kesha-playing-a-fender-squier-stratocaster.562065/

    When did she acquire this Telecaster, does she still own it? I hope Dr Luke didn't give it to her. :)

    Here is the link to the video that shows her playing a Fender Telecaster:
    She is playing it around the 0:32 mark.

    Do you like Kesha? What is your opinion on her music? Please let me know.

    Really, nobody touched this?


    Ok, I think Kesha is a joke. Not in the way I hated boybands and called them a joke, but I mean not redeemable and cant take seriously.

    With contemporaries as talented as Lady Gaga, im not sure why she's famous.

    Fender giving literally every pop act with traction a guitar an spot in a video continues its position as THE guitar brand. Relevance is fought for, not inherited in the low attention span publics eyes.

    MGK will do more for the popularity of guitar music with his latest album than Kesha holding some Fenders, but until shes touring at the front of a blues trio, incant say anything about her career has made me believe shes plucking her next album out on a tele and writing it herself. Pop music isn't devoid of talented musicians; Bieber was a drum prodigy. I cant emphasize enough how good at what she does Gaga is. Kesha is not the top of the heap for writing, or her pipes, or even her image if we compare her to other folks with more distinction and purpose.

    Having said all that, she belongs in the R&R hall of fame more than Nickleback, but that's the closest I'll get to a compliment.
    ;)

    I've met her in London just before she "made it". She knows what she's doing and she's very persistent, can't deny that. I respect her for that.

    I was sucked into watching this commercial and she doesn't ever actually play the guitar.

    Is it a prop?
    Are we being Rick-Rolled?
    Where did the dollar sign go in her name?

    i think $he lost it because of the suits with Dr. Luke. Not sure one can say how much talent she does or does not have, given the he!! she's been through.

    Now. Flea otoh.

    Hmm. Well its a bummer when you get a bad doctor, definitely. Did he botch a plastic surgery or something? Actually, never mind. Not even curious. She's not a guitar player, she's just doing a commercial.

    I like her more reverent stuff more than her earlier club pop stuff. She actually has a nice voice when she’s not whine-rapping. As for her music, she’s always written and made her own music, at least in the earlier days; so I will give her that. As for guitar playing, the only clips I could find she was playing drop-d power chords in 1/4 note or 1/8 note rhythms. So not spectacular.

    Looks like the whole bruhaha has its own Wikipedia page. LOL. She seems like a bit of a hot mess to me. No idea who this producer is, looks like he mainly works with pop/cabaret acts I guess.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kesha_v._Dr._Luke

    That whole genre reminds me of Madonna when I was a teenager. She sold a gazillion, trillion albums but I didn't know a single person who actually owned one.

    Well, looking at her shows where she has a guitar in her hand she isn't playing them just going through the motions. It's a show at best. She might be playing a root bass note at some instance but that is about it. I don't doubt that maybe she does play. But she has a White Falcon in one vid an Ibanez in another and a Telecaster in this one.

    At one time she was worth up to $40 million. She had some problems and she is down way below that now. Still a millionaire. Talent? That is in the eye of the beholder. To make millions as an entertainer?

    Don't know who she is, but she's not playing one, she holding one.
