Ke$ha backtracks on comment that she was ‘forced’ to sing ‘Die Young’


Ke$ha’s hit song “Die Young” has been pulled out of rotation at radio stations around the country in the wake of the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut last week and on Tuesday the pop star issued a statement apologizing for the now controversial lyrics. In the apology Ke$ha explained that she was “forced” to sing the lyrics but later deleted the post and apologized again and explained that she understood that the song was inappropriate. Today the singer took to her website to backtrack on her earlier claims and explain that no one forced her to sing “Die Young.”
“After such a tragic event I was feeling a lot of emotion and sadness when I said I was forced to sing some of the lyrics to Die Young. Forced is not the right word. I did have some concerns about the phrase “die young” in the chorus when we were writing the lyrics especially because so many of my fans are young and that’s one reason why I wrote so many versions of this song. But the point of the song is the importance of living every day to the fullest and staying young at heart, and these are things I truly believe, “ she said.
