After facing harsh criticism of thoughts she expressed via Instagram earlier Thursday (May 21st), Lana Del Rey is defending herself.
In her initial audience, the singer called colleagues from female stars Doja Kotka, Ariana Grande, Camilla Cabello, Cardi B, Kelani, Nikki Minai and Beyonce, who “had number one with songs about being sexy, wearing clothes, f– -ing, infidelity, etc. “She then asked if she could continue to sing about her own dark past,” without being crucified or saying that I admire the abuse? “
“To be clear, because I know you like to twist things,” she wrote in the comments section of her post. “I love these singers and I know them. That̵
“I would also like to have the same freedom of expression without judging hysteria,” she explained.
Del Rey went on to defend himself through an Instagram story, writing: “Brother. It’s sad when we talk about a WOC theme, when I talk about my favorite singers. I could literally say someone, but I chose my favorite people. “
She added: “And this is the problem with society today, not everything is what you want it to be. This is exactly my post – there are some women who don’t want culture to have a voice that may have nothing to do with race, I don’t know what it is. I don’t care anymore, but I’ve never called me a racist because these are bulls —. “
The singer of “Blue Jeans” continued to push critics who thought she was calling for minority artists. “By the way, the singers I mentioned are my favorite singers, so if you want to try and make a bone to take from this, as always, be my guest, that doesn’t change the fact that I haven’t had the same opportunity. to express what I wanted to express without being completely cut off, and if you want to say that this has something to do with race, that is your opinion, but I did not say that. “
She concluded by writing, “When I said people who look like me, I meant people who don’t look strong or necessarily smart, or seem to be in control, and so on. it’s about advocating for a more delicate person, not a white woman – thanks for Karen’s comments from V.
