Ke$ha Leads Satanic-Lite Cult Orgy in ‘Die Young’ Video
Hawt electro beatz and wolf sex in an old Mexican church
Ke$ha’s upcoming Warrior LP is all about embracing one’s inner wolf, but the video for lead single “Die Young” features a handful of people that the white girl rapper has converted into figurative sheep — Satan-worshipping, orgy-having, fancy-dancing sheep. The song itself is co-written by Nate Ruess of fun., and the folks in the new clip seem to be having some choreographed version of that as they carry their new cult leader Ke$ha into an abandoned Mexican church, then writhe with her in time to the hawt electro beatz. The footage is overlaid with chillwave triangles and spliced with shots of wolf-sex, but it all feels a bit too stiff to be all that crazy, sexy or cool. After you watch, catch up on your Ke$ha lore via Marc Hogan’s analysis of the “Die Young” single, and Nicole Sia’s detailed preview of Warrior, which is due out December 4 on RCA.
