‘Tik Tok’ hitmaker Ke$ha wasted very little time responding to reports her hit song ‘Die Young’ was yanked from radio air due to insensitivity to the recent Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy of Newton, Connecticut.
As stories of the song’s removal from radio ran atop headlines, Ke$ha ran to Twitter to offer an explanation of the song’s origin that may have incited a new set of headlines of its own:
Ke$ha originally took to Twitter to say:
“I understand. I had my very own issue with Die Young for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.”
Without offering explanation about who forced her, the tweet was quickly removed and replaced with:
PR redo 101. For, without question, the masses would want to know who (or what) forced Ke$ha to sing those lyrics. Lyrics to a song, mind you, she claims to have written. Either way, despite public opinion being torn on whether the song deserved to be ripped from radio considering its arrival pre-incident, we still give Ke$ha thumbs up for being a good sport about the issue.
