Ke$ha Says She Was Forced Into Recording Die Young: Truth Or BS?

After being bombarded by negative tweets related to the lyrics of “Die Young”, Ke$ha took to her Twitter yesterday to bash the hell out of her own song and claim she was “forced” into recording the track. If she’s to be believed, she never wanted to record those words and has felt really bad about the message the song conveys since the moment it was released.

Unfortunately, there’s now a little bit of evidence that calls into question her entire story. According to TMZ, the pop star appeared on a radio show just a few weeks ago and told New Yorkers listening to 95.5 WPLJ that she personally “wrote and rewrote and rewrote that song ten times”.

Clearly, at some point, Ke$ha was lying. Either she doesn’t really have a say over the material she records and just wanted to make herself look good to the radio station, or she has complete say and spewed some bullshit yesterday in an attempt to get people to stop yelling at her in the wake of the tragic Connecticut school shooting.

This is the point in the article where I’d normally refer you to the tweets in question, but they’ve all since been deleted. So, the question is, was she really forced into recording “Die Young” or was it her idea from the beginning? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll below…
