Ke$ha’s latest single, “Die Young,” has been at the center of controversy in the wake of last week’s horrifying school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. On Tuesday, Ke$ha responded to the backlash, which has seen the song drop from No. 1 to No. 2 on the Billboard chart, and suffer an 11 percent drop in radio play.
Via her Twitter account, the singer first wrote "I understand," before explaining that she herself was unhappy with the title and lyrics of the song, further writing "I had my very own issue with ‘die young’ for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO."
She added "I'm so so so sorry for anyone who has been effected by this tragedy and I understand why my song is now inappropriate. words cannot express." The single, from her new album "Warrior," was produced by Dr. Luke and Benny Blanco, though it’s unclear who she claims "forced" her to sing the lyrics, which include lyrics like "Let’s make the most of this night/Like we’re gonna die young."
"Die Young" isn’t the only single to be affected by the tragedy; Foster the People’s hit "Pumped Up Kicks," which has lyrics about a school shooting, has also been pulled from playlists. Do you think that Ke$ha was forced to sing the lyrics of "Die Young"?
