Ke$ha Backtracks on Comment She Was ‘Forced’ to Record ‘Die Young’
Ke$ha is in damage control mode after claiming in Twitter Tuesday that she was “forced” to record her latest single “Die Young.” As previously reported, the pop star made the comment after a firestorm hit over the song’s title in the wake of the tragic Newtown shooting and is now clafirying her comments.
“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,” she wrote on her official site. “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.”
The song has been put back into radio airplay this week.
