Ke$ha's "Die Young" got pulled. She's attacking it herself. TMZ reports the 'singer' says she didn't want to sing the song. It also points out she's listed as a 'writer' on the credits. That's usually an indication that she didn't really write a word. E reports:
"Die Young," which is currently No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 ranking all singles and No. 1 on the music magazine's pop chart, was pulled by many radio stations in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., that left 20 first-grade children dead.
"i understand. I had my very own issue with 'die young' for this reason," she wrote on Twitter on Tuesday evening. "I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO."
The tweet was deleted not long after. An RCA rep had not returned a request for comment at press time. Ke$ha has a writing credit on the song, alongside Fun.'s Nate Reuss and producers Dr. Luke, Cirukut and Benny Blanco.
Again, I'd normally be defending the artist but Ke$ha is clearly an 'artiste' and a fraud. If she wrote the song -- any part of it -- she wouldn't be slamming it.
So we're left with she's either a wind-up doll taking orders or she's just a liar who claims song credit and stabs her co-workers in the back at the first sing of controversy.
Either way, she's an idiot.
