Ke$ha
has just -- shockingly -- come out and said she never wanted to sing the controversial lyrics in "Die Young" -- even though she's listed as one of the writers of the song.

TMZ broke the story ... Ke$ha's hit song has been yanked from a huge number of radio playlists since the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. 

Ke$ha just tweeted, she understands why her song is now inappropriate, adding,  "I had my very own issues with "die young" for this reason.  I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO."

The lyrics include this:  "Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young.  We're gonna die young.  We're gonna die young."

A bunch of people lashed out at Ke$ha on Twitter, slamming her for the song in the wake of the tragedy.

Ke$ha is listed as a co-writer of "Die Young," along with Dr. Luke and others.  She does not explain why she was forced to sing those lyrics.

Power of the ILLUMINATI!
They told her if she doesn't sing the songs they want, she won't be famous. Just like all the other Illuminati singers She sold out FOR FAME.

The only tragedy concerning this no talent chick is that people actually buy her crap songs.

"Die Young" has been a metaphor, a figure of speech and in music and poetry for years. This reactionary country that we live is makes me sick. It's art and it's about youth and that we have a short time being young so live your life...etc. Making Ke$ha the focal point/fall guy of what happened shows how immature we really are as a country. GIVE ME A BREAK !!!

The song is about living your life to the fullest extent because you never know which day will be your last. This song has been out before the tragedy and has NOTHING to do with children so the fact that people are even mad with her over this is simply disgusting and ridiculous. People are always seeking a scapegoat and they've just found one.

The thing is, half of the people talking ill about the song have never heard it to grasp the concept of it. All they see is "Die Young" and they immediately think children, which in my opinion is ridiculous. America needs to stop playing the blame game, especially with a female whose song came out BEFORE the Sandy Hook tragedy. It doesn't even make sense.

It's ridiculous that this is even a story. I don't believe anyone made her sing the lyrics, but that's not the issue and I have never heard the song. The timing of the release was unfortunate, but it's not like it was planned around the tragedy. She certainly never knew it was coming and deserves no bad press because of it. If that was true, maybe we should be blaming Billy Joel for "Only the Good Die Young". I think that song came out about 35 years before the tragedy. He must be really insensitive for making us think about it for so many years before it happened.

First, before anyone feels that I'm being insensitve about the shooting, I am not. None of this matters to the families and friends of the deceased, and they deserve the uttermost compassion and privacy while they grieve and mourne their loss and try to rebuild. But even if TMZ, Kesha, and her producers later retract her claim about this and her Tweets, let's take into account her bizzare performance on the Today Show, which, by the way, was performed in front of a live audience of mostly CHILDREN. Even though the song was released before this CRIME was committed, which just so happened in "NEW"town (more than likey to signify NEW World Order, if there is any real association), what compelled her and her crew to adorn a tidal wave of Satanic symbolism, including pentagons and an upside down cross on the front of her outfit? Why? Was it the same people that supposedly forced her to sing the lyrics? Mickey Mouse may as well wear a gold chain of a huge pentagon around his neck and a tatoo of a swastica on his forehead. Dying young is in reference to child sacrifice, which is a satanic practice on higher levels of worship. It may very well be a coincidence that this CRIME occurred afterwards, of which most of its victims were children - too young to know anything about Kesha or any of this madness - but it makes you wonder. Besides, the shootings are about relinquishing the US citizens of their 2nd Ammendment right to bear arms. Drive by shootings and the likes, as tragic as they are, do not touch the heart of people as stiffly as do first grade children and teachers. That is entirely another matter. Notice the wave of anti-gun hysteria. This is how low these heartless, cruel, and diabolical satanist will stoop to acieve their goals. Expect such CRIMES to intensify. These are not madmen. These are wealthy, powerful and crafty people under the rule of Satan who aim to rule the world, which raises the question, again, about Kesha's satanic performance. You all only think it is about mental disorders because that it what the media informed you. The CRIME scene is closed off for months and the shooter and his mother are dead. Who can speak for the dead? WAKE UP people! In honor of the latest victims, the ones before, and others that will follow, do not surrender your rights or support any such unconstitutional legislation. The invasive Patriot Act and the Homeland Security Agency was formulated with similar stratigems. This is their goal. And if they stoop to this, and other past crimes on a scale you could not imagine, what do you think will happen if you are defenseless? And another tad bit of info: Die Young, was relased on September 25, 2012. The short lived TV show, Good and Evil (colors themed black against white), launched on September 25, 1991, a total of 21 years. Coincidentally, there are 21 Satanic points. Or is it a coincidence?
