Ke$ha collaborates with Iggy Pop

Ke$Ha has teamed up with her "idol" Iggy Pop for a new duet.

The TiK ToK hitmaker has long cited the punk star as one of her musical influences, and now she's confirmed they're collaborating on a song for her second studio album.

Ke$ha took to Twitter.com to post a photo of herself in the recording studio with a topless Pop, writing, "It's a dream come true to be collaborating (with) my IDOL! The original WILD CHILD. Iggy (and) I got a song for yall (sic) on my next record...get ready."

The pop star's upcoming album, which is due to hit shelves later this year (12), will also feature a collaboration with The Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne.
