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.

What she means is, they are using her as an Illuminati puppet and the song Die Young does suggest that you should party hard and not practice safety and just die young - like who cares if you die at all?

It's a song. Everyone needs to take their tampons out and stop being so damn sensitive about everything. It's not like that song had anything to do with the massacre.

Ok this is just stupid. Why is she saying she did not want to sing the song? I will tell you...she is not wanting people to be mad at her which is insane. Looks like she would stand up for who she is ...the song was not meaning any harm. This makes me look at her in a very different way..and not a good one.. Be who you are.

Ke$ha is just a disgusting SKANK. No one forced you to sing anything. Did they force you to take the money too? Go back to taking porn pics of yourself and shut your lying piehole.

This girl    

This song came out months BEFORE the shooting. Can we please not blame someone who was completely uninvolved, and instead focus on the appropriate response, which is sending prayers and positive thoughts to the families and friends affected by this tragedy?

When will folks just learn to say, no comment? There is nothing to defend. She didn't PREDICT the tragedy.

Kesha is a song writer and producer, she knows what she was doing! That video is the most Satanic praising
image I have seen before. This chick is part of Satanic
worshiping "Hollywood" industry. You either join them
or your career will be like the titanic. People are hungry for fame and fortune at any cost! Kesha is not
innocent as she is trying to seem. She and Lady Gaga are Devil worshipers, amongst many who gave in to the business for millions! As a Christian I am praying for artist like Kesha, who get caught up in the Devil's web of deceit for fame and fortune. It's ok to want to word hard to be successful in life, but not at the cost of praising the Devil in songs and one's daily walk. Nothing is worth putting your soul, and morals leaning towards the depths of hell!
