Ke$ha’s “Die Young” Pulled From Radio, Sinks on Charts


Ke$ha’s latest pop hit is getting the silent treatment following the massacre in Newtown, CT, last Friday.

According to TMZ, “Die Young” was sitting pretty at #3 on the radio playlists on Friday, the day of the tragic shooting, where it reached 167 million listeners nationwide. By Saturday, the day after the shooting, airplay dropped by 3 million listeners. By the time the new week came in, the pop smash dropped down to 148 million listeners—a 19 million drop from it’s previous potation.
