Lana Del Rey Responds to Backlash for Comments About Her Critics

Lana Del Rey is reacting to backlash.

The 35-year-old “Lust for Life” singer posted a series of comments explaining her thoughts further upon being met with criticism for a post earlier on Thursday (May 21), in which she name-checked stars like Beyonce, Kehlani and Ariana Grande while discussing how critics suggest she’s glamorizing abuse.

“Bro. This is sad to make it about a WOC issue when I’m talking about my favorite singers. I could’ve literally said anyone but I picked my favorite f–king people. And this is the problem with society today, not everything is about whatever you want it to be. It’s exactly the point of my post – there are certain women that culture doesn’t want to have a voice it may not have to do with race I don’t know what it has to do with. I don’t care anymore but don’t ever ever ever ever bro – call me racist because that is bulls–t,” she wrote in one comment.

“When I said people who look like me – I meant the people who don’t look strong or necessarily smart, or like they’re in control etc. It’s about advocating for a more delicate personality, not for white woman – thanks for the Karen comments tho. V helpful,” she added.

“f–k off,” she simply hashtagged a post on her Instagram, complete with shots from her “Tropico” music video.
