Bisexual pop star Kesha has dedicated her new album to her gay fans.

Born Kesha Rose Sebert, the 25-year-old American singer-songwriter said many of the songs were about standing up against adversity.

In an interview with The Sun, she said: ‘Something I kept hearing about was bullying and sexuality. I have a lot of gay and lesbian fans and they said how my music had helped them deal with bullying, so I wanted to write a record that’s about love and acceptance.’

Her last single ‘We R Who We R’ was described as an ode to bullied gay teenagers.

‘I wanted to inspire people,’ Sebert said. ‘It’s a celebration of any sort of quirks or eccentricities.’

The ‘Tik-Tok’ singer also admitted she had the ‘biggest crush’ on Florence Welch, the lead singer from Florence and the Machine.

‘I have the biggest crush on Florence Welch,’ she said. ‘I met her at Coachella and was like, “Wow”.’
