Singer Ke$ha has described gay men as “really magical people.”

The 25-year-old Ke$ha – full name Kesha Rose Sebert – released her debut album, Animal, in 2010. Her second album, Warrior, arrives later this month. The single Die Young from her upcoming album is her eighth top-ten hit.

Speaking to UK's Gaydar Radio, Ke$ha found it difficult to explain her affinity for gay men.

When Phil Marriott asked, “Do you sometimes wish you were a gay man?” Ke$ha answered: “Are you joking? Yes, I do.”

“Why is that?”

“I don't know, there's just an energy to a gay man that has, you know … it's not really comparable to any other people. You guys just … you just exude just this happiness,” Ke$ha said.

“Pretty much my whole touring party, as far as like the dancers, it's a lot of gay, beautiful, beautiful men. … And they're just gorgeous. And their love of life is amazing. They're just, I don't know, just really magical people.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
