Poor Ke$ha says she never even wanted to sing “Die Young,” anyways. Yesterday we learned that the shock-pop queen’s current Warrior single has been pulled from radio stations in the wake of the tragic shootings in Newtown last week. The song doesn’t glorify dying young so much as it insists we stay up all night and party hard with K$, but the song’s title and principle refrain (“let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young”) don’t sit well right now. Ke$ha seems to get that, and last night she apologized for the song’s poor timing — and then she confessed that she never liked the song’s lyrics anyways. Did someone make Ke$ha do something she didn’t want to?
“I had my own issue with ‘Die Young’ for this reason,” she tweeted last night. “I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and was FORCED to.” Those tweets have since deleted and replaced with one that keeps her business out of it while more directly addressing the events in Newtown:
What’s that, Ke$h? “Die Young” radiates all the things Ke$ha has come to stand for, party-tude dialed up to the max and all f***s that could possibly be given dissolved in a wash of laser-y synth — we’re shocked to learn that somebody had to “force” her to partake in the song. However, she has said again and again that this is is her “old hippie rock song,” which, well — you’ve heard the song, right?
