The year 2012 will already go down as one of the best in music memory, but it's not over yet - so join Capital FM as we look at some of the best reasons to still be excited about the second six months of the year.
Ke$ha: "I Absolutely Love Rihanna" - Video
The 'Die Young' singer tells Capital that she "absolutely loves" the 'Diamonds' star, but rules out duet.
Ke$ha has confirmed that her new album 'Warrior' does not feature a collaboration with Rihanna, but admitted that she "loves" her.
Last month, the 'Die Young' sparked rumours that she had collaborated with the 'Talk That Talk' star after posting a cryptic picture of a lady holding the star's logo on Twitter.
But during an interview with Capital FM, Ke$ha denied that she had recorded a song with Rihanna – but did acknowledge the influence the star had made on her career.
"Yeah, I love her. I toured with her a while ago, she's kind of a mentor to me at the beginning of my career," Ke$ha said.
"So absolutely I love her and I have all the respect in the world for her. But I didn't unfortunately do it on this record."
Watch Ke$ha talking to Capital FM about Rihanna below:
Ke$ha's new album 'Warrior' is due to be released in November and features the lead single 'Die Young'.
In a recent interview, the singer promised her new album 'Warrior' will give fans more of a look at her personality and focuses less on the partying aspect of her life.
