Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Ke$ha understands why people might not want to listen to “Die Young” right now.

In response to reports that the song’s radio airplay declined in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn., the pop star tweeted, “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.”

TMZ cited Mediabase statistics saying that “Die Young” reached 148 million U.S. radio listeners Monday, an 11 percent drop — significant for a top 40 pop song — from the 167 million people who heard it Friday.
