Ke$ha Releases Statement About 'Die Young' Lyrics, Retracts Tweet

Ke$ha has released a statement regarding the lyrics to her hit single “Die Young” in light of the recent school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

“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,” the 25-year-old singer wrote in regards to her tweet that she felt forced into singing the song.

“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,” Ke$ha concluded.

Earlier in the week, Ke$ha tweeted: “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.” The tweet has since been deleted.
