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.

Who cares about Ke$ha and her illumanti filled Die Young video. Everyone has there own interpretations about this song, but it really has nothing to do with the tragedy that has happened. But I for one am glad they banned her song from the radio because that song is basically telling young girls its okay to be a ***t. "Young hunks, taking shots Stripping down to dirty socks Music up, gettin' hot Kiss me, give me all you've got It's pretty obvious that you've got a crush (you know) That magic in your pants, it's making me blush (for sure) Looking for some trouble tonight (yeah) Take my hand, I'll show you the wild side Like it's the last night of our lives (uh huh) We'll keep dancing 'til we die" Way to be a role model Ke$ha! Don't get me wrong her music is catchy, just not appropriate for younger girls.

I don't think that Kesha litterally means to die young... I think she means to die young in spirit...

here's an idea.... write your own songs and don't sing songs that you are being "forced" to. please go away, ke$ha.

I like the song. I just wished she would have just kept her mouth shut. I'm sure she wasn't "forced" to sing the song no more than she is "forced" to sign all her big paychecks.

I'm sorry but songs that were out before the shooting have nothing to do with psycho killers. Hell songs that come after shootings have nothing to do with psycho killers PERIOD!
