Lana del Rey announces new album, is not not a feminist, has questions for the culture

https://instagram.com/p/CAcQPuBJdir


In a lengthy note on instagram the singer

  • for some reason brings up Beyonce, Doja, Cardi and Kehlani's songs and asks if they can sing about sexuality, why can't she write about being "embodied by being in love" and abusive relationships without being called retrograde by "female writers and alt singers"

  • claims to be not not a feminist but wants there to be a place in feminism for women who say no but men hear yes, and women who get their voices taken away from them by "stronger women" or "men who hate women"

  • announces a second book of poetry in the works. Proceeds from both books will go to Native American foundations

  • announces a new album September 5th! But does not say which year

  • also posted a photo of Jack Antonoff, but why should I repost. Safe to say he'll have a hand in the new album.

I love her, but this little rant of hers is a bit over the top. She feels the media is being unfair with her? She should google Britney fucking Spears.

So her experience is invalid because another female singer got it worse?
It’s just more about perspective.
It's about having perspective which is what a lot of what white people lack. Nobody is saying she doesn't have a right to be mad about rightfully unfair treatment but she's not directing her frustration at all those white male losers on music critic sites. She's specifically targeting black women (or Ariana who I'm sure she thinks is Latina) who legit haven't said shit about her. Hell Ariana just WORKED with her.

Agreed she’s comes off as petty and bitter so tired of it
This statement is just as vacuous as her music
I love her music and I 100% agree lol
lol how is her music vacuous? this statement is a mess and i've no interest in defending it, but c'mon.
Your fave is a racist, misogynist. Deal with it.
I love a lot of her music, but a lot of her lyrics are faux-deep.
I'm a fan of her music, but let's not pretend she doesn't under-write some of her lyrics:
"He's crazy and Cubano como yo, la-la"
"Take that body downtown"
"Sugar sugar, how now, take your body downtown"
"You're so fresh to death and sick as ca-cancer"
"Guns in the summertime / chic-a-Cherry Cola lime"
"All the Colombians like / Yayo, yayo, yayo"
"You're so art deco, out on the floor / shining like gunmetal, cold and unsure / baby, you're so ghetto, you're looking to score"
The chorus of "Salvatore"???

The answer is ONTD will reach to any height if they have a hate boner for someone. The same flop heauxs who claimed to love Lana’s music two posts ago will now flip and agree it’s “vacuous” bc she’s getting dragged. Such bs.

I found this review of Normal Rockwell accurate on her politics (though I don't think she's talented either lol, the author sort of does):

"Del Rey longs for “her version of America” but it’s clear that the America she’s missing is one where privileged white women didn’t have to worry about politics. “I grew up with Obama and we were happy,” she recently told NME, despite being in her early 20s at the time. “We had gotten to a point where we could focus on music and the arts.” Her ability to ignore social issues like feminism, police brutality, and climate change until Trump’s election is another sign of Del Rey’s inability to grapple with her privilege. The Black Lives Matter movement began in 2013, after George Zimmerman was acquitted for the murder of Trayvon Martin. Meanwhile, in an older interview with Pitchfork, she says, “Under [Obama’s] administration… Everyone I knew felt safe. We were on the up-and-up.” It’s now abundantly clear which group of people she’s referring to."

mte lol
Sorry about the multiple submissions mods, I kept getting server error messages D:

Anyway this is the dumbest thing she's posted since she defended her planned Israel gig with how a good-intentioned singer like herself might help the situation with her energy and she can keep these women's names out of her mouth. Who ever stopped her writing her songs? No art is exempt from criticism and NPR journos don't decide who gets to go number one (if that was the case, Kehlani might belong on her list).
E LIZ A BETH!
What an unnecessary ~essay. Just say your new album is out in September and go.
I adored Norman F*cking Rockwell so much. It’s still such a comforting presence to me during these last few months when times have been tough. Looking forward to new music!!!
Norman Fucking Rockwell (the song) is very... calming. I listened to it on repeat while on a 16-hour flight back in January and I still do on some lazy mornings.
agreed. This song is nothing short of mesmerizing.
Same
👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
Lol ilu
What Kehlani song has gone #1 Lana? What a weird thing to namedrop her. Also her seemingly being judgemental about black women + Camila's music is not going to go down well. Yikes.
lol mte but i guess kehlani was ethnic enough for her white woman hit list. funny how she kept billie's name outta her crooked collagen mouth

She def thinks Ariana is ethnic too
Yikes.
I love her music but she has and always will be stupid as a person
I agree.
Never forget when she thought talking about physics was more important than talking about feminism lol
She's glamorous?
ikr has she seen any of her post btd promo
mte like....what


i'm guessing she equates plastic surgery & her rip-off Priscilla Presley lewk as "glamour"
She’s the Lauren Conrad of music. That’s not glamour (I mean neither are passive-aggressive racism, white fragility, extreme entitlement when you’re not actually facing adversity to making your music just social and artistic criticism about the content, or boot-licking anti-equality MRA type BS, so...).

Also there’s totally a place in feminism for women like her (as she is asking for while implying there isn’t) - it’s called White Feminism and she should probably familiarize herself with it since she like the epitome of it.
Calling herself glamorous made me roll my eyes so hard.
Not for ten years.
Glad that I have never fucked with Lana like that. Love that for me.
I don't wanna hear someone who sings about fucking old men for money crying about being labeled controversial. She got fingers getting wagged at her back then because it was mainly stupid teenagers on tumblr listening to her and thinking it was cute to be a dumb dolly prostitute (yes I fell into the sugarbowl tag once, it was not pretty nor anywhere near safe lol). No one even tut-tutts her anymore like they used to because unfortunately no one really cares. Every album is her murmuring in a daze about dick. Maybe if she used actual beats instead of fuckin instrumentals every goddamn song, she'd have a number one hit by now. Like, the entitlement to think you can put the entire nation to sleep and still get a smash hit??? Wake up by Hilary Duff.

Wow it’s like you bottled my disdain for her trite music and distilled it into this comment *chefs kiss*
screenshot SAVE
I love a lot of her music but this is absolutely true lmao
i had to separate this tab from my browser so i could minimize it, walk around, and make myself a coffee so i could come back and fully appreciate its beauty. brava
Brilliance. This should have been the first comment and END POST. Perfect.
lmfao i circled back a few hours later and this is still killing me
i wasn't gonna come into this post because it enraged me and i didn't want to read a single comment agreeing with her and then i came in and saw this gem

Damn it I was not ready for that comment 😂
"the entitlement to think you can put the entire nation to sleep and still get a smash hit??"

"The kind of woman who says yes but men hear no" really irks me but I can't precisely articulate why. "Bad men made me?" How it kind of smacks of feminists being big butch meanies while she just wants to be a fragile princess?
it absolves men of wrongdoing. idk if she's high on her own beauty or what, but being fawned over by creeps isn't a feminist act ffs. like she didn't have anything to say about the shitty way moby described her in his book but natalie correctly called him a creepy bald liar going after a woman so much younger than him rather than accepting the ~*~teenage temptress~*~ label.
Yes, it's very much cutting off her one piece of the cake away from both men and women like she can.
What did Moby say?

Also Natalie Portman, like most people, isn't really going to take being preyed on by an older man as validation of her beauty or worth. Lana probably takes it as a compliment, and weirdly seems super intent on being "young and naive" to men when she's a grown adult...she has issues tbh.

You got it the other way round but it's because it's rape culture, saying that when a woman says no she actually yes. I can't believe she actually said that, that's so fucked up. She really glamorizes the whole fucked up way women were treated in the past.

Basically saying she wants to have shit men in her life because it must give her character. Keep saying that when women are actually dying at the hands of men. Esp in lockdown. Dumb as f.
Girl, wait until the beyhive and barbz finish their online summer school work, they are going to chew her ass up
RIGHT ON UP!!!!
