WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA—In the vibrant and inclusive atmosphere of the WeHo Pride Outloud Fest, pop star Kiesza shone brightly, not just for her electrifying performance but also for the profound story of resilience and triumph that she carries with her. With the release of her ambitious new album, “Dancing & Crying Vol. 1*,” Kiesza invites us into a world where music becomes a vessel for healing, self-discovery, and celebration.

The album, which debuted on May 24, is a testament to Kiesza’s physical and emotional journey from darkness to light. It not only pays homage to her past influences but also offers an intimate glimpse into her life’s most challenging chapter—the recovery from a traumatic brain injury sustained in a car accident in 2017. Through her music, Kiesza channels her experiences into art, inspiring others to find strength in vulnerability and beauty in adversity.

For Kiesza, Pride transcends mere celebration; it embodies acceptance, equality, and the unapologetic expression of love and identity. She says, “Pride to me means acceptance, equality, and celebration of all those whose love and gender can’t be put in a box. It is a fight for those who are suppressed for their sexual orientation and a pledge to help give them as loud a voice as possible to express themselves openly and without fear. I believe deeply in the right for all people to be able to love freely and share the most authentic version of who they are with the world.” Her presence at the Outloud Fest resonated with these values, creating a space where diversity was embraced and celebrated with fervor.

Among the stellar lineup at Outloud, Kiesza expressed particular excitement for performances by Kylie Minogue and Orville Peck, artists whose music and artistry resonate deeply with her own creative spirit. As Kiesza took to the stage adorned with a beautiful beaded hummingbird necklace, symbolizing healing and positivity in many spiritual traditions, her fashion choice reflected not just style but also a deeper connection to symbols of hope and renewal. Given her journey of overcoming a traumatic brain injury, the hummingbird necklace holds special significance, perhaps carrying with it a touch of luck and healing energy that uplifts her spirit.

On a visit to the desert landscapes of Joshua Tree, a place known for its mystical allure and rumored encounters with extraterrestrial beings, Kiesza shared attending a musical retreat: “I have many great memories there, and I was recently there for an ambient music retreat.” It was there we got on the topic of life from other planets, and Kiesza shared a captivating story of witnessing UFOs in the night sky. While she keeps some of the details close to her heart, the experience of seeing these enigmatic lights dance across the horizon left her in awe, sparking a sense of wonder and curiosity about the mysteries of the universe. With a playful spirit, Kiesza mused about the possibility of joining the aliens on their cosmic adventures, embodying a sense of openness to the unknown and the extraordinary. “I won’t give specifics, but where I do live is also known for having aliens and UFO sightings. I once saw two UFOs disappearing and reappearing somewhere else, way too quickly to be human vessels. I don’t know what they were doing, but they were moving synchronistically together over a lake. It was really cool. If they invited me onto their ship, I would definitely go.”
