We’ll have whatever she’s having. Ke$ha’s got it bad, and it turns out that's oh so good, in the video for “Your Love is My Drug.”
America’s favorite new party girl is, by her own admission, a “lovesick crackhead” for her new fella, but we’d say it’s more peyote than crack given the trippy adventure she takes us on through the desert with her
long-haired hippie ‘70s reject Shaman boyfriend. They wander through the wilderness, perhaps for 40 days and 40 nights, and then seek adventure, just like the owl and the pussycat, in a rowboat. By now, the good drugs have really kicked in and Ke$ha and her beau are surrounded by a cartoon ocean, complete with a cartoon buoy and seagull and a big old crab..
As the mind-altering substances (which we don’t see them drop, of course) further take hold, she enters in an animated, pop-art world straight out of The Beatles' “Yellow Submarine” crossed with Peter Max, where psychedelic fish playfully frolic.
Then as phase two hits, Ke$ha turns into a bit of a Shaman herself, covered in tribal paint and dancing with a python. We’re still not really sure what the elephant has to do with anything other than they figured, “Why not?” It’s a video; suspension of disbelief is the price of admission.
It’s a sweet (for Ke$ha) song and the video follows a real storyline that turns into a visual feast. It’s her best effort yet. When it comes to this drug, just say yes.
