After Ke$ha publicly blasted her hit song ‘Die Young’ after it was pulled from the radio in the wake of the tragic Newtown shooting, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned why the pop star is really upset!
Ke$ha is maybe the most outspoken singer out there today, and after tweeting and deleting a post on Dec. 19 that said “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,” HollywoodLife.com has found out what she is really thinking about the uproar and controversy!
A source close to the pop singer tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the pop star is feeling as though she is being attacked for something she shouldn’t be, telling close friends, “Now does Billy Joel have to take off his songs from the radio!” She is obviously referencing his song, “Only The Good Die Young,” after her hit song has been removed from radio in light of the tragedy.
But we also have been told, “She realized that what she wrote on Twitter was not right, but she feels she is being attacked over something she didn’t do, and that is be in any way a part of the tragedy!” She has even recently tweeted, “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, 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 after the horrifying events perpetrated by Adam Lanza, 20, when he killed 20 children and 6 adults.
Now Ke$ha has bashed her song solely for what our sources say is an attempt at “doing damage control because usually she doesn’t give a sh*t with controversy, but the song not being on the radio or being played is affecting her pocketbook. So she was being pissy that people are thinking the song glorifies the massacre.”
So HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Ke$ha’s song “Die Young”? Sound off below!
