Boots & Boys

Songfacts®:

  • In this song Kesha sings about lusting after men in the same way that male performers have traditionally done about women. "It's time they got a taste of their own medicine," she told The Guardian November 29, 2009: "People are shocked by it, but if I were Guns N' Roses or Van Halen, no one would be surprised. Or a rapper – look at all those songs on the radio that are, like, 'Girl go up and down the pole.'"
  • Kesha collaborated with Olivia and Mim Nervo for this song. The twin sisters also penned the top line of the David Guetta and Kelly Rowland hit "When Love Takes Over."
