AND NOW KESHA TELLS US HOW SHE REALLY FEELS ABOUT HER SONG 'DIE YOUNG': It turns out KESHA likes her song "Die Young" after all. She hit up her Facebook page to clarify her stance, saying it was a moment of "emotional sadness" that caused her to say she was "forced" to record it.
She adds that she, quote, "did have some concerns about the phrase 'Die Young' in the chorus when we were writing the lyrics...because so many of my fans are young. But the point of the song is the importance of living every day to the fullest and staying young at heart, and these are things I truly believe."
IN DENIAL - LEANN RIMES NOT DRUNK ON 'X-FACTOR': LEANN RIMES caught a ton of you-know-what for her odd performance on Wednesday’s "X Factor".
Many questioned why her voice seemed so uneven, and why at one point she looked unsteady on her feet. Of course, the speculation was that she may have been drunk while singing her duet with Carly Rose Sonenclar.
But LeAnn denies being FUBAR on stage. Instead, she threw the 13 year-old under the bus explaining the performance was awkward because of Carly, who she says was nervous. Quote: "I was trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having some trouble with the song."
TMZ claims they got the LeAnn statement from her rep, but the singer took to Twitter to deny she talked to the press, writing, “It's a shame that gossip and lies are overshadowing the performance of Carly."
"In my 18 years of performing," she added, "I've never been anything but professional onstage." Which means, then, she has no excuse for sounding like this ...

LOHAN LUNACY - LINDSAY THE COUCH THIEF?: Hard to believe, but LINDSAY LOHAN is being accused of yet another scam -- by accepting pricey furniture to appear on a home decorating show, then refusing to go in front of the cameras, as per their deal.
The producers of Bravo's “Million Dollar Decorators” say they delivered $200,000 worth of stuff to LiLo's rented pad after she approached them to ask to be on the show. But after the goods were delivered, and the home was prettied up, Linds disappeared and stopped returning phone calls.
The show, featuring Lohan's bedroom, but not Lohan, will air on January 1st.
Meanwhile … TMZ has more dropped more backstage dirt of Lindsay’s behavior on the set of “Scary Movie 5." Apparently, filming was shut down for an afternoon while Lindsay refused to kiss her co-star, CHARLIE SHEEN.
A friend close to Lindsay tells TMZ the script called for them to kiss three times, but Lindsay feared catching something gross from Sheen. And, yes, that IS a case of the pot calling the kettle black.
TMZ also reports that both Charlie and Lindsay were required to sign affidavits which promised they did not have a herpes cold sore on their lips. Ultimately, the script was re-written to accommodate Lindsay, and a body double was used for some of the kissing parts.
