Ke$ha praises Rihanna: 'She has been a mentor to me'

Pop superstar Ke$ha has admitted that Bajan beauty Rihanna is one of her biggest inspirations and she revealed that touring with her at the start of her career was invaluable in terms of experience and guidance.

Speaking to Capital FM, Ke$ha explained that she looks up to the 'Diamonds' sensation because of everything she's accomplished and how she's handled difficult personal times in the public eye:

"Yeah, I love her. I toured with her a while ago, she's kind of a mentor to me at the beginning of my career. So absolutely I love her and I have all the respect in the world for her."

When asked if the rumours that suggest they collaborated together for Ke$ha's forthcoming new album, 'Warrior', she was quick to correct the speculation and said: "I didn't unfortunately do it on this record."

Her new single, 'Die Young', will be released in the UK on November 25 and her album will follow on December 3.
