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

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 mean I really can't believe what I just read. It's so racist and delusional that I don't even feel like ripping it apart.
What a fucking clown.

EDIT: whewwww people are already making excuses for her...white women really can get away with throwing WOC under the bus like that huh
REALLY side-eying all the (white, let's be real) commenters here saying 'I love her but....!'

But WHAT, motherfuckers?

Pathetic and predictable.

Whyyyyyy??? Ugh!!
there's an alt reality where azealia beat up her and Grimes and corona never happened
I never trust these white indie singers who are convinced they are doing something different from the rest of the pop girls. It's really fucking racist and disturbing that she only called out WOC or people she probably thinks are WOC. And it's almost all black women. No wonder she is dating a cop.
Lana indie? Girl, when? Lizzie Grant was indie for a hot second, but that's about it lol
You know what I mean. She thinks she is doing something totally different from Mainstream Pop even though she isn't, lol. Real Music!!!
Tired ass karen. White women are so damn pressed when they see WOC win.
What kind of entitled tone-deaf rant?? Everyone in the comments already said it well enough, just WOW.
All the spicy and unspicy women and white gay dudes putting on their KKKone hats and "I don't see color! Why make everything about race!" goggles to defend their sis.

It's a good day to go be anti-white.
targeting all woc, most of them black women (ik ariana is white but i’m assuming lana thinks she’s a latina)... this is exactly what a white woman who’d go by “lana del rey” because she “went to miami often and spoke spanish a lot with her cuban friends” would do
