All Aboard Kesha’s “Life-Changing” Rainbow Ride in Wild New Mini-Doc

The "Spaceship" singer has also announced a second Rainbow Ride cruise that will set sail in 2020.

Calling all Animals, all aboard!

Earlier this year, Kesha and her fans commandeered a cruise ship for a four-day journey from Florida to the Bahamas, which she lovingly named the Weird & Wonderful Rainbow Ride.

In addition to Animals, as her fans are called, Kesha also invited a bevy of special guests to perform on the ship, including Big Freedia, Betty Who, Wrabel, and Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness, plus Drag Race squirrel friends Bob the Drag Queen, Thorgy Thor, and Detox.

The cruise also had theme nights, “non-stop dance parties,” and a Lip Sync For Your Lifeboat competition hosted by the “Spaceship” singer herself.

If you weren’t able to cruise with Kesha and her crew, you’re probably experiencing some serious FOMO right now. Well, luckily for you, NewNowNext is debuting a new mini-documentary that brings you aboard the Rainbow Ride and recaps the entire four-day voyage.

“This cruise has been fucking life-changing. I’m so inspired by the whole experience,” Kesha says in the doc. “It has opened my eyes to what true love and freedom looks like. I am forever changed. Thank you so much for just having the time of your life.”


The first Weird & Wonderful Rainbow Ride was so successful that the she has announced a second cruise which will take to the seas October 16-20, 2020, setting sail from Miami on the Norwegian Pearl.

Fans can sign up for pre-sales now on the Kesha’s Rainbow Cruise website.

More details will be announced later this summer. Until then, check out the wild doc recapping the first Rainbow Ride below.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
