Ke$ha Takes on Westboro

kesha

We know that the Westboro Baptist Church are not ones to shy away from showing their distaste for certain musicians; pop stars and bands a like.

Whether it be All Time Low, One Direction or Taylor Swift, once you’re on their hit list, they never go away. Someone should have warned the Westboro tribe that one of those pop stars that they are against is not one to take thing lying down and that’s exactly what Ke$ha did to the horrid group.

The group has been protesting  Ke$ha’s Lincoln, Nebraska, show on Sunday night; assembling with their all too familiar signs condoning homosexuals and even playing their own parody version of Ke$ha’s hit song, “We R Who We R.”

What the disgusting protesters didn’t expect was for Ke$ha to be about two steps ahead of them and their overly predictable protest (well, when they do show up for a protest that is). The glitter-ific singer sent out three of her tank-topped male dancers to sync up their moves to the Westboro’s version of the song which they, of course titled, “God Hates Who You Are” (we aren’t even going to touch that one).

Check out the video below and some of the lyrics as well.

“Dear Lord, burn it up! / It’s about that time to finish up / We’re so sick of their filthiness / They makin’ it all lascivious / We’re just talkin’ truth / We’re tellin’ you bout the sins you do.”

If anyone were to win an award for best trolling ever, Ke$ha might just be coming out on top.

Artists Protesting Florida? Not So Fast

After the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin ruling two weeks back, many artist have come out of the woodwork to protest the state of Florida over a reason that no one truly knows. Whether it’s the ruling (just for those that are not familiar, Zimmerman was found not guilty) or the actual “Stand Your Ground” law, artist were rumored to be protesting the state (you read right, the state, not just that particular city).

Word got around yesterday through the Huffington Post that artists such as Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, The Rolling Stones and many more would be staying clear from Florida due to the verdict outcome. The Monday after the verdict, Stevie Wonder had come out saying that he would not be entering the state of Florida for anything as a protest. Today, it turns out, many of the representatives are coming to the defense of their performers saying that their clients had never heard of or been contacted about the list.

American Urban Radio Network’s White House correspondent April Ryan first reported the list, claiming that she had gotten the information from credible  “sources close to the Stevie Wonder camp.” The Huffington Post had said that they were at the time trying to contact the artists’ representatives even though they had posted the list. At the time, the only representative that had gotten back to them was Rihanna’s who revealed that she was not involved. MotherJones got word that The Rolling Stones had not even heard about the campaign.

When doubt started to reach an all time high, Ryan released a statement on her website where she explains that she got a ext in the middle of the night from someone who were “in support of Stevie.” Her statement could be seen below:

I obtained from multiple sources early Monday a list of artists and entertainers who my sources told me had committed to a boycott of Florida following the George Zimmerman acquittal. Since publishing that list I have heard from several representatives of the artists named who say, on behalf of their clients, they are uncomfortable being identified on that list and are seeking additional information.

Additional representatives have come out to debunk that their clients, who were on the list, were even aware that their names had been put on the list of protesters, which begs the question, if Ryan didn’t put this list together then who did?

Supposedly protests not only those mentioned above, but also

  • Mary Mary
  • Eddie Levert
  • Rod Stewart
  • Madonna
  • Usher
  • Pattie Labelle
  • Kanye West
  • Mary J
  • Trey Songz
  • R. Kelly
  • Alicia Keys
  • Joe
  • Will I AM
  • Keyshia Cole
  • Young Jeezy
  • Erykah Badu
  • Wale
  • Frankie Beverly
  • Parliament

Taylor Swift Added to Westboro ‘Hitlist’

For most of us, the Westboro Baptist Church are nothing but a bunch of attention hungry, over-preaching spineless jellyfish who have nothing better to do then spread misery. From their protests at soldiers’ funerals to picketing concerts, their reputations isn’t exactly one made of gold.

Now, the group have found a new target to boycott and its none other than country darlin’ Taylor Swift.

The Topeka, Kansas-based hate group have announced that they would be picketing Swift’s concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo on August 3; apparently, they don’t like that she has had a revolving door of ‘boyfriends.’

“@TaylorSwift13 works her ‘girl next door’ country-singer shtick, while hopping from one young man to the next and strutting across the world stage like a proud whore,” the group wrote in a recent press release.

But that’s not where the WBC ends because come on, it would not be to easy for them to end it there. They went on to criticize Swift’s father by claiming that “he has no compunction about her immodest vulgar appearance or serial fornication. With a hating hypocrite for a dad – who will jealously guard her income, while not giving a thought for her never-dying soul – no wonder she grew up to be the poster child for the young whores of doomed-america [sic].”

Even though they have gone ahead and called Swift a poster child for “young whores,” they have realized that she is one of the biggest stars in music and that her legions of followers are easily influence by her.

So what do they want out dear, Tay-Tay to do? Tweet things like “Stop fornicating ladies, and obey God” because it would “rock the house.”

WBC believes that Swift uses her Twitter powers for bad by promoting fornication and not preaching the destruction of man through her 140 characters account.

While being interviewed by RadarOnline, WBC member Ben Phelps, who happens to be the grandson of the group’s leader, Fred Phelps Sr., explains why Swift is their latest target.

“This girl is a whore. Who else is gonna say that if it’s not the church of the Lord Jesus? She’s coming into our backyard. We’re gonna go preach to her.”

He continues his rampage by saying that she pretends to be a good Christian, but she’s not because all she does is promote whoredom, fornication and “that” filthy lifestyle.

But while they are making such noise now, nobody should worry because they do have a history on bailing on such events. Maybe they fear that God will strike them down while they’re busy being pig-headed.
