Is Ke$ha too Reckless?

 

Infamous party girl Ke$ha has found herself with her foot in her mouth, probably among other things. Recently, after the tragic and horrifying shooting that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary, Ke$ha’s song ‘Die Young’ has been criticized for being inappropriate. In response, Ke$ha absolved herself from all responsibility and tweeted that, not only did she not like the lyrics of the song, but she was FORCED to sing them. The pop star even added that the message behind “Die Young” is not what she had intended. It is no surprise that this tweet has since been deleted. Now, Ke$ha’s Twitter page reads as an apology to those who have been affected by this tragedy, and that she now knows how inappropriate her lyrics were. The song in question, which has the lyrics “Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young. We’re gonna die young,” has been pulled from radio stations across the country after shooter a deranged shooter killed 20 children and 6 adults at the elementary school. Interestingly, now Ke$ha rescinded her “FORCED” comment completely on her official site, saying that she made the comment in a moment of “emotion and sadness,” and still stands behind the message of “Die Young.” She maintains that the point of the song is to stress the importance of living life each day to the fullest and staying young at heart. Hopefully, this experience has served Ke$ha as a reminder of the influence she has on her young fans. Maybe “dying young” isn’t the perfect message to be sending out to our youth.
