Pebe Sebert, Kesha's mother, has admitted that she wrote the controversial lyrics about serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer for her daughter's song "Cannibal".
Many have suggested it was inappropriate for the victims to name-check him in the song. Evan Peters is also starring in 'Monster.
The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.' Yes, I'll pull off Jeffrey Dahmer. Pebe now insists that the song is about Kesha, not Dahmer.
She also said that she included his name in her song because it was fitting the rhyme.
In a TikTok video, she said: "Some context on a lyric that's bothering people twelve years later. All opinions are valid. This is not meant to be a deterrent.
The whole Jeffrey Dahmer song in "Cannibal" is currently a hot topic. Because that was the line I wrote in "Cannibal", I thought I'd share a few thoughts.
"Kesha and the other writer at the time were too young to know Jeffrey Dahmer. Literally, it was because I had this rhyming program called Master Writers for Songwriters.
Jeffrey Dahmer was the end of the most extensive rhymes when we were trying to find a rhyme for "goner". "Oh, my god, that's a perfect liner," I thought.
Pebe continued to insist that the songwriters had "never meant for to hurt anyone" and she is sorry for the loss of loved ones.
