Ke$ha once called her greasy sophomore album, Warrior, “really positive, really raw, really vulnerable and about the magic of life,” and said that she rewrote the lead single “ten times” before deciding on the current version.
Now she’s singing a different auto-tune, denouncing “Die Young” after hearing that it had been pulled from radio stations because the lyrics could be considered insensitive to the families of the 6 and 7 year-olds lost in Newtown, Connecticut.
“I understand. I had my very own issue with ‘die young’ for this reason, I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO,” Ke$ha tweeted.
Way to throw a good but overplayed pop song under the bus.
The song has four co-writers besides K. Sebert, and I highly doubt a single one of them could force the woman who “destroys men on a weekly basis” to do anything.
Or MAYBE Ke$ha is all talk, and doesn’t actually brush her teeth with whiskey?
Why anyone felt the need to point fingers at the least serious woman in music’s ode to dirty socks, dancing and crushes is beyond me.
Call me crazy, but I think the victims mothers might be doing something other than tuning into Z100. Any mental patient with $40 can buy a gun, but for God’s sake, take Ke$ha off the radio and pull the video game commercials! So glad America has their priorities in order.
