The pop singer’s Top 40 hit “Die Young” was yanked from radio airwaves yesterday in response to the Newtown, Conn., school massacre. She took to Twitter earlier to express her sadness:

She also urged her fans to contribute to a Newtown-related charity:

We’re not sure what she means when she claims that she was “forced to” sing the song, on which she is listed as a co-writer. Maybe that’s her excuse for this verse:

Young hunks, taking shots
Stripping down to dirty socks
Music up, gettin’ hot
Kiss me, give me all you’ve got
It’s pretty obvious that you’ve got a crush
That magic in your pants, it’s making me blush

In any case, there’s considerable debate about whether it should have been pulled. What do you think?
