It’s not an immediately obvious combination, but pop star Kesha and the supernatural are a match made in heaven. Well, the afterlife at least.
At a recent San Diego Comic-Con panel, the Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter shared her journey to hosting Conjuring Kesha, a series which sees her share her love, and experiences, with the supernatural and other random mysteries.
Looking absolutely badass with a long, dark braid and dressed in a black leather top and ripped black trousers Kesha was joined by rappers Big Freedia and GaTa, who also appear on the ghost hunting show.
