Lana Del Rey Gets Slammed By Musician Kim Gordon

“Today we have someone like Lana Del Rey, who doesn’t even know what feminism is, who believes it means women can do whatever they want, which, in her world, tilts towards self-destruction, whether it’s sleeping with gross older men or being a transient biker queen,” Kim wrote in her memoir Girl in a Band (quote via HitFix).

Kim continued, saying: “Equal pay and equal rights would be nice. Naturally, it’s just a persona. If she really truly believes it’s beautiful when young musicians go out on a hot flame of drugs and depression, why doesn’t she just off herself?”

    This is how someone can make a fairly good point and then totally blows it in the end with a hate rant.

    If so many young women are turned off by feminism, it’s the so-called feminists themselves who are to blame. Yesterday’s feminists were about empowering women, about giving them choices. Today’s feminists are only about man-bashing and treating women as victims who can only be saved by government legislation. They’re only about choice if it’s a choice they agree with. Feminism has been taken over by the most radical parts of the Democratic party. I just read somewhere how Drew Barrymore talked about her first kiss when she was younger, about 10, I think; a boy ran up to her on the playground and kissed her and ran away. She thought it was cute. Today’s feminists, however, would have that boy suspended from school and make him take some kind of sensitivity training.

  • Jess

    I love Kim Gordon, but damn. That was harsh.

  • Lee

    Plain English, everyone knows Lana Is a hack, bogus as monopoly money

  • jason

    it had to come from an old, ugly angry woman

  • Guest

    Your comment is a joke. You know nothing about feminism. At least Lana confessed she is ignorant.
    But you are ignorant and you don’t want to admit it. Just shut up.

  • b324

    Sounds like you’re the new generation of not understanding what and who is feminist.

  • Jay

    Um… Lana Del Ray I think admitted a while ago that it’s an act. She was blonde and didn’t get taken seriously. From that SNL performance you can tell her vocals aren’t her main selling point. So she changed her sound and changed her look, and she suddenly became the queen of grunge and an acclaimed artists. Even she was surprised. It’s all about perception. I really like her music, don’t take the rest seriously. I think nowadays with ‘stars’ it’s best not to look too closely.

  • Lulu

    Who is an amazing artist, musician and woman. You don’t even have a clue about who Kim Gordon is or what has done for female musicians and artists.

    Get educated.

  • Lulu

    Kim Gordon was not only a pioneer as a woman in a male’s world, but she is an artist with honesty and integrity.
    Lana del Ray should get an education and learn what words mean before she opens her mouth, which, to her own admission, she used for other activities to help her getting where she is.
    Something Kim never did.

  • Sandy McFarlane

    …….i’m sorry but who is kim gordon?

  • Binks

    The Democratic party is in no way shape or form “radical.” I wish it was…

  • idgaf

    omfg. my female fav is being problematic… /_

  • Sarah

    Good job Kim Gordon bashing on other women in the industry….
    Why don’t you just leave Lana alone. It’s her music and her sound so you should let her express herself the way she wants. Women shouldn’t tear each other down they should lift each other up.

  • machud

    But she is right, and you know it, about what the feminist would want for a 10 year old boy that dared to kiss a girl on a playground and then run away. The feminist would immediately want the boy arrested, charged with sexual assault, take 3 years of counseling, and register as a child molester.

  • @Marmont

    I DID NOT KNOW WHO THE FUCK WAS KIM GORDON! I DON’T CARE WHAT SHE THINKS OF THE QUEEN! BECAUSE, IF LANA IT’S NOT INTERESTED IN FEMINISM, IT’S NOT! SHE IS TRYING TO IMPUT THOUGHTS ON LANA! FUCK KIM GORDON AND HER FEMININIMS PROTECTION! BECAUSE IF SOMEONE WANTS TO BE BLIND AND DUMB, LET HER BE! AND MORE, THAT THING KIM GORDON – THING. SHE DOWNGRADED TO A THING! She should not even do 5 dollars on her albums! “whether it’s sleeping with gross older men or being a transient biker queen” – AND THEN! she should mind her own business!!!! “If she really truly believes it’s beautiful when young musicians go out on a hot flame of drugs and depression, why doesn’t she just off herself” – I think believing is not threatening, it’s not going to come out from her head!!! LOL GROW UP KIM GORDON!

  • Callum Traynor

    lana is not ignorant she just doesn’t care about the feminist views , and she thinks women can do what they want no need for feminism

  • YildizEstrella

    Maybe Lana feels empowered enough to not give a shit? Last I checked this was a free country and we had the right to not give a shit? Why this slavery enforced upon all women that they must give a shit about “women’s issues”? Do we enforce all gays to give a shit about gay issues? No. They’re allowed to give a shit or not give a shit. Do we enforce all black people to give a shit about MLK? Of course not.

    And I love Lana Del Rey. I was on the SNL bandwagon until I actually listened to the album and loved it. I don’t give a shit if she can’t sing live due to stage fright or whatever. Her melancholy vibe soothes me. Unlike this hate filled anti-feminist rant telling another female to commit suicide.

  • YildizEstrella

    Lana cares more about Issac Asimov shit like Space X and Tesla.

  • Lisa-Marie

    I completely agree.

  • Lulu

    Get an education.

  • Lulu

    You mean like Lana should do, instead of saying she used s*x to get where she is, and then say she is not a feminist?

    Please.

  • Lulu

    Queen of grunge?
    Do you even know what grunge is?

  • Lulu

    You are an idiot. I am not even going to try and educate you.

  • Jay

    Lol, as I typed I knew someone would call me on it. I just couldn’t be bothered to find the word, and I knew you would still get what I meant. But yeah I know it’s not grunge.

  • Guest

    She IS ignorant: “For me the argument of feminism never really should have come into the picture. Because I don’t know too much about the history of feminism, and so I’m not really a relevant person to bring into the conversation.”

  • New Yawka

    @Lulu, I just looked at your comments and responses. You have contributed nothing to these comments except insults. You are displaying the anger and rage that feminists are now perceived as. So instead of calling everyone a moron and telling them to get an education, maybe you should educate us in a humane way. Prove to everyone that feminists aren’t angry, bitchy women who offer little explanation aside from talking points and insults. Stop perpetuating your own stereotype.

  • Callum Traynor

    she just does not feel the need to campaign for feminism because she feels females can do which they want

  • Guest

    @Lulu: It’s ‘Rey’ not ‘Ray’ so how about YOU get educated. smh

  • Lukas

    1. are you 12 years old?
    2.do you live under a rock?

  • 4kobe

    Funny how Kim Gordon’s not very tolerant of Lana’s differing view of feminism. I wouldn’t wish for anyone to off themselves like Kim does but the world would have been a better place if Kim Gordon had just stfu instead of thinking she could actually sing…
