But from the lips of Ke$ha's big-wig producer Dr. Luke himself, there is not — and was never — a Rie$ha duet planned… at least not for Warrior!
"I'm going to tell you right now: There's no Rihanna. I don't know where that came from. I've seen it all over the place, but there's definitely not a Rihanna song on it. Iggy Pop is on the record, Patrick [Carney] from the Black Keys is on it, another sick drummer we have is Fabrizio Moretti from the Strokes on it and [frontman] Julian Casablancas plays on some stuff and Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips did a song."
Welly well well, that is QUITE the indie-stuffed, eclectic line up!
Despite the absence of Rihanna's Diamond sparkle!
