Did You Hear?

:: Following the controversy surrounding the lyrics of her single “Die Young” in the wake of last week’s Sandy Hook massacre, Ke$ha apologized on Twitter for the song’s poor timing — and claimed that she never wanted to sing the lyrics in the first place. “I had my very own issue with ‘die young’ for this reason,” she tweeted. “I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO.” Yikes. [The Prophet Blog]

:: According to frontwoman Shirley Manson, iconic rock group Garbage is heading back into the studio at the top of 2013 to begin working on new songs, but not a new album. “The good thing now is we don’t even need to think in terms of an album, so we’re just thinking in terms of new music,” Manson explained. Whenever she’s ready to think in terms of an album, though, she’ll hear no complaints from us. [Popjustice]

:: No touring for you, Meek MillThe rapper, whose real name is Robert Williams (did you misread that as Robin Williams? Yeah, us too), is barred from touring after a judge found that he violated his probation restrictions stemming from a 2008 conviction. [Yahoo! News]

:: A new, anonymously written roman à clef titled Elimination Night promises to spill all the drama about the backstage shenanigans on the set of American Idol — think The Devil Wears Prada about the talent competition world. After reading the pitch, Thomas Pynchon released a statement saying, “I simply can’t compete with this literary greatness. Goodbye, cruel world. I retire.” [THR]

:: T.I. performed live at Fuse Studio in New York City to promote Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head. It was pretty dope, as the kids say. And ahoy! There’s video! [Billboard]

    IDGI so is she saying RCA forced her or the other writers? (song was written by Kesha, Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco, Cirkut, and fun. singer Nate Ruess) Strange defense.. she should of just said in light of the recent tragedy we understand the song may seem inappropriate. Unless she was looking for a media bcuz her album is not selling very well.

    “I definitely make sure that every word rings true to me because I would never want to misrepresent myself to millions of people around the world,” she supposedly said. ” I wrote and rewrote and rewrote that song ten times.” — Kesha to wplj ny radio last month about the song “Die Young” ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  3. Ke$ha is just a disgusting SKANK. No one forced you to sing anything. Did they force you to take the money too? Go back to taking porn pics of yourself and shut your lying piehole.
