The Residents's eyeball heads infiltrate pop culture

The mainstream has been ripping off the underground since day one, but Ke$ha's recent stage shows have reached further from leftfield than usual, into the realm of The Residents. A video of her recent tour shows a gaggle of dancers clad in top hat and tails, with canes and The Resident's signature disguise, the eyeball head mask. Apparently Ke$ha has also been spotted wearing a Residents t-shirt, but hasn't yet commented on her borrowing, and the group are currently considering their options.
