Kesha Claims She Was 'FORCED' To Sing Die Young Lyrics!

Interesting indeed!

According to Ke$ha herself, she was MADE to sing the controversial lyrics in her Die Young single.

The song, which glamorizes dying prematurely, has been yanked from radio airplay following the tragic Connecticut school shooting.

So the party animal took to Twitter to respond by saying:

And in a tweet that has since been deleted, she drops one helluva bombshell:

"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."


WHY would they force her to sing those lyrics??

Pair that with the video's symbolism, and we bet the conspiracy theorists are gonna have a field day with this one!

    An artist who had such a success in the US with the last album can be forced? It does sound a bit unlikely.

    Most pop stars are forced, no matter how much control they make people think they have, they don't.

    Liar. And fame whore. This girl - and all the other girls like Rihanna and Lana Del Rey - need to wake up. When people complain about their lyrics promoting sex and violence and soullessness, it's not because we're conservative freaks from some bible beater organization. it's because the consciousness of the planet is shifting and what they're selling is ephemeral pleasures that are no good for the human soul. That's why people think they're all illuminati or satanic or whatever - they have no interest in helping people on the planet feel good. Instead, their lyrics and acts are self-promoting and they exploit the anger or fear of listeners with catchy pop songs that go down easy and do nothing for the soul. And they ALL keep singing about dying young and being born to die. These young women are borderline sociopathic in their inability to realize how spiritually sick their songs are.

    first off the lyrics are completely innocent. Tons of songs have been written with that "We only have tonight metaphor"
    So while they are at it…why not ban- My Generation by the who, Billy Joel Only the good die young. etc…

    Re: Douche Hunter – Talking bout "m m m my generation" "hope i die fore i get old" luckily none of us got that done. I'm 62 and Roger is 68, John died at 57,
    Pete is 67, Keith came closest dying in '78 at 32 from OD of clomethiazole, he never got to eat his steak and eggs breakfast. .

    Forced? The video has satanism written all over it. In addition, it's a shout out to her Illuminati handlers. Please, save your apologizes for GOD.

  10. 10

    Forced? The video is covered with Satanism symbols, it's a video dedicated to her Illuminati handlers. Ke¢ha, save your apologizes for GOD.

    So was she "forced" to record all of Warrior, because her ENTIRE album has a theme: dying young, living in the moment, being crazy, and not giving a fxck. Plus, SHE CO WROTE THE SONG! She should have kept her trap shut.

    Wouldn't that make her more "Kesha" if she said "no I won't sing that". Or wrote her own music so she wasn't "forced" to say anything. Free speech works both ways you can not sign a contract on future speech unless the speech exists.

    Re: multipurpose – No, she wasn't forced to record all of Warrior. According to an interview her producer did in September with MTV, the chorus to Die Young was changed. The original lyrics were almost certainly written by Kesha but Nate Ruess from the band Fun wrote a different chorus. Luke said he preferred Nate's chorus, so they changed it. I can imagine that Kesha protested the change but what could she do. She's under contract and isn't nearly rich enough to break it. And why would she break it over the chorus to one song when she got her way on so many other songs like Wonderland and Past Lives, which are the kinds of songs you'd find on few other pop albums. In her tweet, she seemed to be specifically complaining about having to sing the words die young. She even explained that the song wasn't actually about dying young on the video she put out for the initial release of the song. She sings a lot about living for the moment but she likely felt the words die young would be misunderstood. It's a pity that her producer and label didn't consider that or didn't care.

    Re: Comments off C off – She does write her own music but her label or producer can insist on changes, which they did with the chorus to Die Young. I'm not sure why so many people don't get that she's under a recording contract and can't simply say no. I'm sure she argued about the decision to change the original chorus of the Die Young but what was she going to when they insisted on changing to the chorus written by Nate Ruess? Breaking her contract would have been a huge over-reaction that what must have seemed like a fairly minor thing at the time.

    Re: Joanne – It is not legal or can you enforce the exact words a person must say in the future unless the words already exist(The lyrics had to exist pre signing of contract and hers). The producers can put into a contract that they can pick her songs which but they can't actually "force" a song on her. So if they picked a song about Hitler she could say no. If she had any confidence or credibility as a song writer or the producers had any confidence in her talent they would let her have a say in the decisions or picking of the songs like (Xtina-GA-GA- Jack White-Miranda lambert- Eminem - But she is an image—-not an artist so they tell her what songs to sing to promote an image. Oh and let me know if she has a song where she has the only song credit—–didn't think so. But it helps the image

    Re: Comments off C off – henious that you would try to minimize the importnce of her major announcement

    This doesn't surprise me. Kesha is intelligent and rumored to have done very well academically, so her balking at the lyrics might follow. She didn't cause anything.
    Refuse to be forced ever again.

    A lot of these people in the industry are forced to sing a certain type of song. Pink sang about it, Kelly Clarkson got in trouble trying to get out of it, Katy Parry is still being controlled. I beleive her.

    Here's my blog post on "Die Young" being pulled from radio. Already done a lot of damage.

  21. 21

    "forced"? by whom? pretty strong word for a music star in a free country…

  22. 22

    Huh? How was she forced if she was the songwriter?

  23. 23

    Re: anunsolvedpuzzle4life – Whenever American's say they are in a 'free' country I LMFAO.
    The irony lies with the fact you do the EXACT SAME SHIT as the Middle Eastern countries do that is so harshly condemned. You just wrap it in tinsel and claim you are the ONE AND ONLY 'land of the free;' whilst women are horrifically third class, black women forth class and… Children? Well they don't matter until you pull out your ridiculous weapons and MURDER those infants do they?
    Land of the free my ass. Quick, send your barely-out-of-toddlerhood to school, show him how kewl and badass you are for having guns, wait for normal (yeah, 'normal' bullying? It's MEAN you stupid fucks) bullying, and in a few years for him to decide to go make a 'kill score' that precedes the psycho before him.
    I would live in Iraq before your fucked up country with it's drooling, hateful morons.
    Oh? I live in a Western Country and am white, Caucasian, Anglo-Saxon blah bah.
    Our of you and China? Can't wait to see China beat you blue. You've earned it you indoctrinationed, uneducated fucks.
