Ke$ha Sets Record Straight: “Die Young” Not “Forced” On Me, But I Had “Concerns”
2:31 pm, December 20th, 2012
Ke$ha has clarified her apology for her hit song “Die Young,” which has been avoided by radio stations in the wake of last week’s shooting massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.
On Tuesday, the singer tweeted that had been “forced” to sing the lyrics, even though she’d co-written the song, and said she was “so so so sorry for anyone who has been effected [sic] by this tragedy.”
She subsequently deleted the tweet implying that “Die Young” was conceived against her will.
On Thursday, Ke$ha posted a message to fans explaining her earlier remarks:
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.
