Lana Del Rey once invited Azealia Banks to a fight after the Harlem rapper blasted her for criticizing Kanye West and his love for Donald Trump.
The Lust for Life singer is now going at other female artists like Doja Cat, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj.
Del Rey said that people often accuse her of "glamorizing abuse" in her music, while giving other women in the industry a pass for their content. People are saying the New York singer is going against other women unnecessarily, and she received a lot of backlash.
"Question for the culture: Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f*cking, cheating etc - Can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money - or whatever I want - without being crucified or saying that I'm glamorizing abuse?"
Do you agree with Del Rey's point?
think Lana’s post would have been fine if she hadn’t compared herself to a group of mostly black women with the clear tone that she thinks she’s been treated worse by the media when that’s observably untrue— shon faye. (@shonfaye) May 21, 2020
lana didn't drag anyone but tbh she could've proved her point in a better way, all the women that she named have been through backlashes because of their works. she's not the only one going through it. women in music industry really deserve better.— rafia (@repromantics) May 21, 2020
What’s blowing my mind is that Lana Del Rey is VERY successful. VERY accomplished. Her debut sold more records than names mentioned COMBINED. What is she talking about???— MXM (@mxmsworld) May 21, 2020
