Let 'Em Talk

Songfacts®:

  • This follows Kesha's anti-bully track "Bastards" on the Rainbow album, and it follows that theme. "Basically it's about those same bastards that try to bring you down," she told NPR. "But it's about not caring, letting go of control and letting them do whatever they're gonna do. You can't stop them from talking about you, so just let them talk and while they're talking about you, just dance through it and laugh about it."
  • Kesha is joined by Eagles of Death Metal, one of two Rainbow tracks on which the rockers teamed up with the songstress. Speaking with Rolling Stone, Eagles Of Death Metal guitarist Dave Catching revealed that Kesha has been following the band for ages.

    "She used to come to Eagles shows when she was 16," he told the magazine. "She was always a big fan. Then I remember we got back from Europe... and she was on every magazine cover when we landed from a tour. It was really amazing."
