Lana Del Rey is under fire for a new message where she shades Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé, Doja Cat, Ariana Grande, and more
Lana Del Rey’s publicist has to be shaking in her boots right now. The talented recording artist announced her new album and, in doing so, she dragged a whole bunch of other female stars that have hustled for years to make it.
Fans are calling for Lana Del Rey to delete her latest message, which has been deemed unnecessarily shady. The underlying theme of the post is about her own music and how, for years, she has been criticized for her lyrical content. People have shaded Lana for “glamorizing abuse” and she doesn’t think that the industry has been fair to her. She wrote the following:
“Question for the culture: Now that , Ariana, Camila, , and and Beyoncé have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, fucking, 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?”

Defending her own music, Lana Del Rey has been criticized heavily for the post. Fans are accusing her of putting down other women in a bid to get her point across and, all morning, she has been trending on Twitter as people share their opinions.
She’s definitely going to need to address this further. We’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, new Lana Del Rey album out on September 5…
