Kesha song pulled over school shootings

Los Angeles - Kesha's latest single Die Young has been pulled from US radio stations, following the tragic massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Conneticut.

The 25-year-old singer's latest single was pulled from US radio stations and the blonde star has come out saying that she understands why it has been deemed inappropriate, because she herself was never happy with the lyrical content of the track.

In a tweet, which has now been deleted, she wrote: "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. (sic)".

The Tik Tok hitmaker went on to express her sympathy for the 26 victims of the shooting, which happened on 14 December, and appealed to fans to donate to a charity fund set up by music group OneRepublic.

'It's a celebration song'

"Its beyond words what has happened. Help families affected by the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary," she wrote.

"I'm so so so sorry for anyone who has been effected by this tragedy and I understand why my song is now inappropriate. words cannot express.(sic)"

Kesha has previously explained that Die Young - which features the chorus line: "Let's make the most of this night / Like we're gonna die young" - is a "celebration" song.

"It's a celebration song, which I'm obviously known for writing those, but this one, the concept of it 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," Kesha said in a previous interview, when asked about her latest single Die Young.
