She's always been a pop star who courted controversy, but now Ke$ha has become a little too much for the public to handle -- at least for now. One of the singer's latest hits, "Die Young," has been pulled from radio play in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut massacre.
At the time of the heartbreaking slaughter of 20 children at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday, Ke$ha's single was No. 3 in the radio charts and was attracting 167 million listeners nationwide. By Monday, it had dropped to 148 million as radio stations nationwide pulled it from their playlists, according to a report by TMZ based on airplay statistics from Mediabase.
By Tuesday the number had apparently dropped as low as 98.5 million, but it's unlikely that Ke$ha herself is upset as she has fully expressed her grief on Twitter, saying "My heart goes out deeply to the people of Newtown, Connecticut." Do you think it makes sense for radio stations to ban this single after the Connecticut massacre? Or do you think the entertainment industry is being overly sensitive?
