Ok, so people should probably go easy on Ke$ha. We can think of a thousand songs that would be deemed slightly inappropriate to play in the wake of the Newtown school massacre, though it seems the Tik-Tok star hasn't been telling the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
In case you haven't heard, Ke$ha claimed to have been forced into singing the lyrics for her track 'Die Young', after several radio stations around the country stopped playing it. She told Twitter followers, "I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO." The track - a Billboard hit - featured the lyrics, "Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young. We're gonna die young. We're gonna die young." The problem is, Ke$ha is credited as a co-writer of the track and during an appearance on 95.5 WPLJ in New York back in November she told the host, "I definitely make sure that every word rings true to me because I would never want to misrepresent myself to millions of people around the world ... I wrote and rewrote and rewrote that song ten times." You can't have it both ways, Ke$ha.
On December 18, the singer seemingly apologised for the whole furore, saying, "I'm so so so sorry for anyone who has been effected by this tragedy.and I understand why my song is now inappropriate. words cannot express."
