Singer Ke$ha is revolting against one of her most famous songs — ‘Die Young’ — after it was pulled from the radio in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting. Keep reading to see what she’s saying!
Ke$ha is known for being outspoken and after fans attacked her and her song ‘Die Young,’ she’s speaking out against the song, saying she never wanted to sing it in the first place and she was forced to! Woah! See her tweets below.
TMZ is reporting that Ke$ha tweeted on December 19, “I had my very own issues with “die young” for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.” She has since deleted this tweet.
It has been replaced with this message: “I’m so so so sorry for anyone who has been effected by this tragedy.and I understand why my song is now inappropriate. words cannot express.”
She first tweeted on Dec. 14, on the day of the horrific shooting, “my heart goes out deeply to the people of Newtown, Connecticut.”
Her song, with the lyrics, “Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young. We’re gonna die young,” has been pulled from radio stations across the country after shooter, Adam Lanza, 20, killled 20 children and 6 adults.
KISS FM, the number one station in Los Angeles, has also pulled the song “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster The People, a song that actually is about school shootings, and was inspired by Columbine.
The chorus of that song is, “All the other kids with the pumped up kicks, You better run, better run, outrun my gun. All the other kids with the pumped up kicks, You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should the songs be pulled? Should Ke$ha be dissing her song?
