Immediately, people began to comment that Lana Del Rey was shading all of the women she listed in her letter, and because they're all women of color, the singer was labeled as a racist.
Del Rey has released six studio albums. She added, "I've been honest and optimistic about the challenging relationships I've had".
"If you want to say that that has something to do with race that's your opinion but that's not what I was saying".
"Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyonce have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f***ing, cheating, etc - can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling lovely by being in love even if the relationship is not flawless, without anyone saying that I'm glamorising abuse?" the post reads. It's about advocating for a more delicate personality, not white women - thanks for the Karen comments tho. While it seemed as if she was looking to speak about allowing women to express themselves however they like, Cancel Culture went wild and blasted Lana Del Rey throughout all social media platforms for being shady.
I don't know who was giving Lana Del Rey a hard time but I'm pretty sure it wasn't Black women.
"Commercial success hasn't made them exempt from misogynistic attacks masked as constructive criticism".
"Even if she made a point, the inclusion of other women was so unnecessary and the fact the women were mostly black has left a bad taste", added journalist Toni Tone.
"She also shared the following GIF on her post with the caption, "#fuckoff". "It's a messy statement".
Beyoncé was threatened to get lynched because she dared to sing about police brutality, Ariana got death threats for the death of her boyfriend that she had no control over. "I could have literally said anyone but I picked my favourite fucking people". And this is the problem with society today, not everything is about whatever you want it to be.
