Singer-songwriter Kesha claims that a dramatic UFO sighting in the California desert served as the inspiration for her forthcoming album.
During a recent radio interview, the colorful artist known for the hit songs 'Tik Tok' and 'Timber,' revealed the remarkable encounter which she says took place at Joshua Tree National Park.
During her visit to the popular site, Kesha recalled, she was stunned when she looked up in the sky and spotted "a bunch of spaceships."
According to the pop star, there were five to seven "little balls of fire in the sky" that left her mystified and wondering what she was seeing.
After initially thinking that they might have been fires on a nearby mountain, Kesha subsequently came to believe that they were UFOs after the lights disappeared and then reappeared in a different formation.
The singer stressed that the was totally sober when the encounter unfolded and said that she even looked online later to see if there was some explanation for the sighting, but found nothing of note.
And, echoing a sentiment expressed by many a UFO witness, Kesha observed, "I don't know why I didn't try to take a picture of it. I just looked at it."
Since that experience, Kesha said, she has incorporated a number of UFO themes into her new work, specifically various craft depicted on the cover of her album and even a song titled 'Spaceship.'
Of course, the singer's story is just latest in a long line of prominent musicians who have allegedly encountered UFOs, including John Lennon and Elvis Presley.
