Lana Del Rey puzzled fans after she criticised female singers for claiming she ‘glamourises abuse’ as she reveals album release date.
The pop singer shared a Instagram post with her frustration at being “crucified” for singing about “emotionally abusive” relationships where other female performers hadn’t faced the same criticism.
Del Rey wrote: “Now that Doja Cat, Ariana [Grande], Camila [Cabello], Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé 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 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 glamourising abuse??????”
So why the outcry ? Well according to the crowd, Lana Del Rey name dropped those artists as if they’ve never were surrounded by controversy. I think the social distancing is driving people crazy?
