Whether you like it or not, pop singer Ke$ha will be covering one of Bob Dylan's iconic songs in an upcoming tribute album.
Ke$ha is known more for songs about waking up to drink a bottle of Jack Daniels than the social change that influence many of Dylan's songs. Despite the differences in the intent of the songs, the dirty blonde pop star still sees a lot of similarities between the two artists.
When you think of me, you wouldn't think of Bob Dylan, Ke$ha told Rolling Stone. My music is more about going crazy than politics, but he's a huge influence - he writes his own music and means what he says. I write my own music, and I f--ing mean every word I sing.
Ke$ha will be performing Don't Think Twice, It's All Right, in the tribute album entitled Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International. Ke$ha told the popular music magazine that she actually broke down crying while recording the cover song and that you can hear the snot running down my face.
To those that aren't the biggest Ke$ha fans take solace in that Adele, Patti Smith, Dave Matthews, and more will also be covering Dylan songs.
Amnesty International hopes that the album will inspire ordinary people everywhere to chime in on humankind's noble quest for freedom, according to Helen Garrett, the organization's director of special projects.
