The "Tik Tok" hitmaker took to Instagram earlier this month to gush about meeting her movie hero before a screening of his new film "Color Out of Space" in Los Angeles. The singer posted a video of the pair embracing on the red carpet with the caption: "Meet ur idols (sic)!!!!!!! Sometimes they're the s**t."
And it turns out, the actor has just as much respect for Kesha, calling her "a great lady" and adding, "we had a lot of fun," in a new USA Today interview.
"I've always admired Kesha for the music; she's incredibly talented," he says. "I was happy to meet her, and she was interested in the movie. So it was a nice time."
Kesha had made no secret of her crush on Cage - last April (19), she took to Twitter to declare, "I love Nicolas Cage."
