Was Ke$ha Forced to Sing Die Young Lyrics?

Since Ke$ha's song 'Die Young' has been removed from radios across the USA to show respect to the tragic events in Newtown, Connecticut last week, she has apologized for the song and claimed she was forced to sing the lyrics, but the latter comes in distinct contrast to an interview that she gave to a New York radio station.

According to TMZ she told the station: "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."

She expressed her remorse for the song 'Die Young', the lyrics of which includes the lyrics 'We're gonna die young' over and over again. She tweeted an apology though, 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." However, according to Access in one tweet that has since been removed she defended herself, arguing that she was forced to sing that song: "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," she said. 

Another of her songs has also been removed from many stations, for the words: "All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, outrun my gun." The song is called 'Pumped up Kicks' which Ke$ha's band says is about bullying.
