Pop sensation Ke$ha’s number one hit has had an impact on social lives everywhere, beyond simply giving a good beat to dance to while out on a weekend night.
In the song, she claims that “the party don’t start til I walk in.” Many of her fans and party-goers across the nation have taken her words, yet again, to heart. Thousands of parties have been put on hold, waiting for the young blonde to walk in so they can begin.
The phenomenon has been inconvenient to many college parties, but it is simply devastating to a number of wedding receptions that have been sitting and waiting awkwardly but patiently for Ke$ha to allow the party to begin.
Take the Gerstein wedding. Rachel and Mark Gerstein, a happily newly wedded couple, had everything go perfectly for their long-planned ceremony. That is, until they hit the reception. Both husband and wife are big fans of Ke$ha’s pop hit, and knew better than to attempt to begin a party before she walked in. So they sat. And their guests sat. They assumed that Ke$ha would know where the party was and would simply gravitate to it.
The result was a long and uncomfortable pause filled with silence and anticipation.
Ke$ha never came.
“We eventually had to attempt to begin the party without her,” Rachel Gerstein said. “Nobody really knew how.”
The Gersteins are simply one case out of thousands who have been stood up by the pop singer while waiting to begin a party. It is believed that the phenomenon will continue as long as Ke$ha’s song gets air time.
