Cruz Wanted Gaga Not Ke$ha

British singer TAIO CRUZ originally wanted LADY GAGA to sing on his new single DIRTY PICTURE - but dropped plans to approach the singer when he discovered KE$HA.
The BRIT Award winner admits he was desperate to sign up the Poker Face hitmaker to provide vocals for the track and he only dropped plans to talk to Gaga when a producer introduced him to then-unknown singer Ke$ha.
He says, "I was thinking about Lady Gaga. Then I went to a meeting with Dr. Luke and he was telling me about this new girl he was working with. She hadn't done (hit single) Tik Tok or anything like that at that point. But I thought she sounded really cool - a very unique-sounding voice."
And after signing Ke$ha up, Cruz is convinced he made the right choice. He adds, "She looked really sexy and I just thought she was really talented. Her voice was awesome. I hope she won't mind me saying this, but her voice has this kind of yodelly (sic) quality to it. I just loved that quality about it."
