Ke$ha: "I Was Forced to Sing 'Die Young'"

FUSE TV - Ke$ha: "I Was Forced to Sing 'Die Young'"

The tangential effect of any school shooting on music, chart positions, etc. is obviously the least important thing to worry about at a time like this. But music news is music news and here we are. As we told you yesterday, Ke$ha's "Die Young" is being pulled from numerous radio stations out of respect for the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School. In a series of now-deleted tweets, the singer claims that she didn't want to sing the song's lyrics in the first place and was forced into it.

“I had my very own issue with ‘Die Young’ for this reason,” she tweeted. “I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.” [Emphasis hers]

Ke$ha is credited as a co-writer on the song along with Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco, Cirkut and fun. lead singer Nate Ruess. It's unclear which songwriters, if anyone, "forced" Ke$ha to sing the track, a celebration of living life in the moment.

The singer expressed her support for the victims last night:
