Pop singer Kesha has no issue with stations pulling her Top 40 hit “Die Young” from airplay in wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting that killed 20 children and seven adults. “Die Young” was number three on Billboard’s Hot 100 weekly singles chart.
The 25 year old artist tweeted on her @keshasuxx Twitter account 12/18 that she understands the move: “I’m so sorry for anyone who has been affected by this tragedy and I understand why my song is now inappropriate. Words cannot express.” In just three hours, the tweet collected more than 3,000 retweets and nearly 1,500 favorites, reported WPXI-TV.
Earlier this year, Kesha told radio and TV personality Carson Daly that the song’s message “was to live each and every single day like it’s your last and to always remain having a youthful spirit no matter how old I get.”
