Taio Cruz Chooses Ke$ha Over Lady Gaga

British crooner Taio Cruz is opening up about his upcoming single, “Dirty Picture,” featuring pop phenom Ke$ha.

“The song is actually about sending sexy pictures to your significant other,” Taio explains to MTV. “If you miss each other and you can’t see each other, you’re far away from each other, you send pictures to remind each other of how sexy you are.”

Taio, 26, admits that when he was looking for someone to collaborate with, K$ didn’t come to mind at first but seemed to be the best fit for the song.

“I was thinking about Lady Gaga at first,” Taio offered. “Then I went to a meeting with [producer] Dr. Luke and he was telling me about this new girl he was working with. She hadn’t done ‘Tik Tok‘ or anything like that at that point. But I just thought she sounded really cool. A very unique-sounding voice. I like that with artists, that as soon as you hear them on a song on the radio, you know immediately who that is without having to be told.

“She looked really sexy, and I just thought she was talented. Her voice was awesome. It had this — I hope she won’t mind me saying this, but her voice has this kind of yodely quality to it, the way that she does things and the way that she ends words. I just loved that quality about it.”

Ke$ha… the yodeler!!!

  • w

  • MIMS

    GAGA would have choose neither!

  • benettson

    That photoshoot is adorable, she should embrace that look and run with it.

  • Tatum

    I doubt Gaga even knows who Kesha is….

  • Melia FM

    I saw Kesha when she came to Sydney a few says ago, she’s actually hot in person. Her hair was really pretty and she was very smiley, she’s very quirky. Still hate her music though.

  • WTVC

    She BORES me. NEXT.

  • ivanka

    gaga and kesha are overrated

  • Venom

    You mean he could not get GaGa.
    Who the hell is he?

  • Kdoc

    Gaga would never duet with this nobody, I like how he acts like he had a choice…
    LMAO! b!tch please..

  • Liz

    Kesha is pretty new on the scene she would prolly do anythig that came her way, Gaga is at a point where she can choose who she wants to work with and I doubt this dude is anywhere on the list.

  • mika_says_hi

    @Kdoc: thats exactly what i was thinking

  • really?

    @kdoc. SERIOUSLY, like who the hell does this nobody thinks he is?

  • really?

    @kdoc. SERIOUSLY, like who the hell does this nobody thinks he is?

    I totally agree!! I would choose Ke$ha any day over Lady Gaga. At least Ke$ha is different for real.. Lady Gaga is boring and a faker. Ke$ha, though not too pretty, looks like a GIRL! Lady Gaga looks like a total MAN! Ke$has a better performer, and she has a very unique voice. Lady Gaga sits on stage and drones on about boring things, and basically takes the fun out of being a performer. I prefer Ke$ha because shes talented, fun, and unique! Go Ke$h Ke$h!

  • Claire

    P.S. to any of you doubters.. go listen to her C.D. almost any one of the songs can be HIT singles! It’s really good.

  • ha!

    Pfff. Lady Gaga craps on white tra$h anyday. At least gaga has talent. How keshas songs are appealing to people over the age of 14 I don’t know.

  • mindfreak

    If I where to be ask… of course I’ll choose Gaga over Kesha… Kesha just pop out and came from no where… like who the hell is this?

  • hehe!

    Lady Gaga is hideous, boring, sucks, and does coke. End of story. Oh how I miss the days where people had to be beautiful to become a pop star!

  • t_b

    JARED, YOU ARE NOT PEREZ AND KE$HA IS NOT YOUR GAGA. GET OVER IT.
    and like this guy even had a chance of getting Gaga on his track, he’s trying to cover his ass because the only person he could get on his track is Ke$ha. Gaga is doing duets with the likes of Beyonce… and who is he? Exactly.

  • VIRGIN

    Sorry, not a fan of Gaga or Kesha … but i prefer Kesha. Gaga is too overrated. Beyonce? Nooooo she is overrated too… Gaga and Beyonce act like their fame is goin to be end soon

  • Alex

    HAHAHA XD
    GAGA WOULD NEVER WORK WITH THIS UH… WHO EXACTLY IS HE???

    @Kdoc : WORD!

  • buzzzzzzz

    Who is this guy? And to say Kesha has unique voice? Well, that’s true, cause the fact she’s a singer amongst all the other singer and she CAN’T sing, that makes her kinda unique.
    Btw I know it’s April 1st but to say she’s sexy, now that’s not funny!!!

  • SubSub

    What he really means is Gaga didn’t know who the hell he was and turned him down or blew him off, so he went with Ke$ha who comes at 10 cents an hour. Please, who is he kidding? Who is this dude?

  • anesleyp

    HEY YOU IDIOTS THIS SONG WAS RECORED WHEN NOBODY KNEW ABOUT THAT MAN LADY GAGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHE WOULD’VE TOOK ANYTHING THAT CAME HER WAY!!!!!!!!!!! P.S LADY GAGA SUXX HER OWN DICK. SHE HAS NO PERSONALLITY. SHE IS JUST ANOTHER FREAK-WHORE TRYING TO BE FAMOUS. KESHA IS VERY DIFFEERENT. SHE HAS A FUN PERSONALLITY AND IS VERY PRETTY. AND SHE CAN SING. I HEARD HER IN A RECORDING STUDIO WHEN SHE WAS RECORDING HER UNRELEASED SONG “Get In Line”. SO FUQ OFF KESHA HATERS AND SUCK DICK LADY GAGA LUVERS.

  • ?

    Lady Gaga fans are so dumb. “She blew him off”… really? Then why the hell did she work with Colbe O’Donnis (such a HUGE star now!) for Just Dance? And is that why she did a duet with that rapper who sounds like Kanye West (can’t even remember his name). Get REAL people, Gaga would have worked with him if he asked. Don’t act like she has standards. I think it’s gonna be funny the day she OD’s and leaves her fans high and dry. Hah!

  • IMA

    @anesleyp: “LADY GAGA HAS NO PERSONALITY!!!111″

    Bit.ch! She has a cuter personality than Kesha has EVER shown!

    beyonce is not overrated. she can sing relatively well and that is quite valuable, cuz she’s very popular as well. most uber popular people are not that good musically. well except for legends like… the beatles. or frank sinatra. or aretha franklin.

  • Mike

    I love Kesha. Gaga’s alright but she seems uptight. Kesha is a girl you could have fun with.
