Ke$ha: 'Leaked songs are old'

Pop star Ke$Ha has reached out to her fans after previously-unheard tracks were leaked online, insisting they are "old songs" she's not planning to release.

The Tik Tok hitmaker's private tunes appeared on the web recently, sparking speculation they are set to be included on her upcoming second album - but Ke$ha has shot down the rumors.

In a post on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "animals! i know some music leaked but those are all old songs that are not goin on the album. promise i'll get u new shizzle ASAP!!!"

The leak is the latest online drama for Ke$ha - her Twitter.com page was hacked earlier this week (begs07May12).
