Ke$ha recently made headlines after her chart-topping song “Die Young” was pulled from radio following the Sandy Hook tragedy. In response, she took to Twitter and revealed she was ‘forced’ to sing the song.
This morning she sets the record straight via her website, saying:
After such a tragic event I was feeling a lot of emotion and sadness when I said I was forced to sing some of the lyrics to Die Young. Forced is not the right word. I did have some concerns about the phrase “die young” in the chorus when we were writing the lyrics especially because so many of my fans are young and that’s one reason why I wrote so many versions of this song. But the point of the song is the importance of living every day to the fullest and staying young at heart, and these are things I truly believe.
Honestly, this is exactly what I thought she meant. Kudos to Ke$ha for clearing things up.
