Ke$ha is desperate to collaborate The Rolling Stones legendary guitarist Keith Richards

Ke$ha is desperate to collaborate with Keith Richards.

The 'Die Young' singer is a huge fan of The Rolling Stones guitarist and says it would be a dream come true to record a track with him.

She said: "Keith Richards is like the end-all, be-all for me. I'm gonna keep trying to work with him until the day I die probably."

Ke$ha will release her second album, 'Warrior', on December 3 and says she wanted the follow-up to 2010's 'Animal' to reflect more of her own taste in music.

Ke$ha exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "On this record I wanted to try and combine the music on the first record with the music I listen to when I'm off stage, so kind of a little bit of dance/electronic pop, a little bit of rock 'n' roll.

"There are like some subversive messages hidden in the back of some tracks and funny things like that. But I also wanted a lot more guitar; I wanted the essence of rock 'n' roll - which is irreverence and a more or less 'f**k it' attitude - to be very evident in the lyrics."

Ke$ha's latest single, 'Die Young', is released on November 26.


The California-based songstress incorporates elements of R&B, rap and electro into her playful pop sound.

The Rolling Stones

The veteran band, featuring original members singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, celebrates 50 years since its formation in London by playing its hits including Jumpin' Jack Flash and Brown Sugar.
