Ke$ha Forced To Sing 'Die Young' Lyrics?
In wake of Newtown shootings, star says she had issues with the song...
Ke$ha has claimed that she was 'forced' to sing the controversial lyrics of her new single Die Young in wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.
The 25-year old singer took to Twitter after the track was pulled from several US radio stations when gunman Adam Lanza shot dead six adults and 20 children at the elementary school last Friday (14th September).
The tune, which is the first cut from her new album Warrior, includes the lyrics: "Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young. We're gonna die young. We're gonna die young."
Speaking of the song, she told her followers in a messages that has now been deleted: "I had my very own issues with 'die young' for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO."
She later added: "I’m so so so sorry for anyone who has been effected (sic) by this tragedy. And I understand why my song is now inappropriate. Words cannot express."
However, TMZ has claimed that Ke$ha's words contradict comments she previously made about the tune during an interview with New York radio station 95.5 WPLJ in November.
Back then, the Tik Tok hitmaker apparently said: "I definitely make sure that every word rings true to me because I would never want to misrepresent myself to millions of people around the world ... I wrote and wrote and rewrote that song ten times."
