20 Things You Didn’t Know About Ke$ha (page 10)
How cool is this! I got this info right from Ke$ha’s website bio…
Two years ago, Ke$ha decided she wanted Prince to produce her first album. So, she found out his address and drove to his Beverly Hills home, where she paid the gardener $5 to let her squeeze under his front gate. Then, she walked up the driveway (which was lined in purple velvet), let herself in through an unlocked side door, and rode the mirrored elevator up to the 3rd floor where Prince was jamming with his band.
“It was kind of awkward,” she recalls, “but who cares, right? So I sat on one of the purple thrones in the room until he noticed me, which he finally did. He was like, ‘How the hell did you get in here?'” she says with a laugh. “His security kicked me out, but not before I left him my demo CD wrapped in a giant purple bow.” Ke$ha never did hear from Prince.
