KE$HA apologized for her Die Young lyrics in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting.
The singer’s latest single was at No 3 in the Billboard singles charts, but was pulled from US radio stations after Friday’s tragedy.
The 25-year-old singer said she understands why her song is inappropriate.
In a tweet which has now been deleted, she wrote: “I understand. I had my very own issue with ‘die young’ for this reason. I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.”
She also expressed her sympathy for the 26 victims of the shooting. She encouraged fans to donate to a charity fund for Sandy Hook victims.
She wrote: “Its beyond words what has happened. Help families affected by the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary by donating here: indiegogo.com/OneRepublicForSandyHook.”
Although the title may seem inappropriate after what happened at Sandy Hook, the lyrics themselves say something different.
Ke$ha previously said that Die Young was a celebratory song. The concept of which was to live each day like it’s your last.
What do you think of Ke$ha’s tweets? Should she have said anything?
