Ke$ha claims she was forced to sing “Die Young”

In the aftermath of the Newtown tragedy, Ke$ha‘s track “Die Young” was pulled from the airwaves because, well, it was a song called “Die Young.” Did they not see why that was kinda dark? Well, Ke$ha took to Twitter to apologize for the song, and take responsibility for releasing a song that could be seen as tactless. No, not really, she actually claimed that she had been forced to sing the song but those tweets have now been deleted. Via HuffPo

Following reports that radio stations had pulled Ke$ha’s hit single “Die Young” from rotation in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary, the singer has responded with not just an apology, but the admission that she never wanted to record the song in the first place. “I understand. 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 tweeted on Dec. 18.

How was she “forced” to sing those lyrics? It’s not like they put a gun to her head and said, “Sing-rap-talk these lyrics, NOW!” And since she was also listed as a songwriter, and the fact that she would presumably have some sort of a final say on what goes on her album, I’m assuming she’s just trying to dodge criticism right now. It should be noted, Foster The People‘s “Pumped Up Kicks” was also taken off the airwaves, and thus far, they haven’t tried to get out of it by claiming they were forced to sing, so Ke$ha can jump up her own idiotic ass.
