Lana Del Rey was unleashed on Instagram to defend herself from those who accuse her of “glorifying abuse” with her songs.
The interpreter of “Born To Die” replied to all her critics who affirm that the lyrics of her songs are loaded with misogynous content that invites women to act submissively.
Del Rey is known for her tragic love themes, something that is reflected in her hits “Ultraviolence” and “Summertime Sadness.”
The singer criticized the double standards that exist in the music industry. She Mentioned other singers like Ariana Grande, Doja Cat, Beyonce, and Camila Cabello and said that they all had #1 on the charts with songs about being sexy, not wearing clothes, and cheating.
Lana also said: “I am tired of the singers who say that I glamorize abuse; I am just a glamorous woman who sings the reality of the things we live today; toxic relationships are something that happens very often, my songs just try to reflect reality.”
Lana mentioned that in the past she suffered because of toxic relationships and that she didn’t want any other woman in the world to have to go through something like that.
On the other hand, the singer expressed her disagreement with the rejection of the feminist community towards her lyrics.
“In feminism, there has to be a place for women who think like me. Women who say ‘no’ but men understand ‘yes’ Women who are criticized for looking and acting delicate, but who are not submissive.”
Lana ended her publication by announcing that her new album, which will be released in September, will cover topics such as toxic relationships and the harm women suffer in these relationships.
She also mentioned that she is writing two new poetry books that are also related to abusive relationships.
