The PROBLEM With Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey not long after it was announced that for the first time in history the top of the charts were dominated by blaque women decided it was her chance to speak on how excluded she feels based on the style of music she makes.

It's hilarious how Lana truly thinks that she's paved the way for women to 'not put on a happy face' and sing about dark subjects when artists like Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Amy Winehouse and many others were doing that years before her. She sounds bitter.

its crazy cuz she mentioned kehlani who has for one never had a number one record and for two literally talks about the same things as lana like they both heavily talk about toxic relationships so she was really just coming for people to come for people that happen to be doing well.

She belittled the music these women make by suggesting they only make music about "sex, getting naked, cheating" as if they each don't have discographies as complex and full of diff topics as her or any other artist. Also she's speaking as if she never sings about sex - a ton of lana's songs are about sleeping with men (rich, or shitty, or married men usually) and bragging about how she is in bed or how her pussy tastes like "pepsi cola" yet she has the nerve to paint herself as some victim of.... what exactly? What is she going through that these women arent also going through in the music industry - except they get the added layer of racism and being "big booty seductresses" for being black women embracing their sexuality but lana is some saint for embracing hers? Nope. It honestly screams white feminism and belittles the struggles black women go through in the industry - she's claiming to be the only victim of sexism, and completing ignoring the racism that goes on or the struggles and criticisms black female artists deal with :/ love how she paints herself as "delicate" as if these women haven't shown vulnerable aspects of themselves... also she didn't pave the way for making sad music / music showing vulnerability lmao

its crazy how someone like lana del rey can say something like this when it is clear that she is just angry that women who are making music that she doesn't deem good enough are more successful than her and it really shows how out of touch she is

let's talk about Melanie martinez real quick, Melanie has been told she sexulizing babies and she was making the same old music but she kept making her music and going on with her style.

So Lana could and can make her music. I've seen videos calling Meg a man, and just being straight rude (that goes for the others as well)
The Weeknd
The Weeknd:
That’s really disrespectful calling her a Mayo mischief she’s a stargirl.

The way she kept describing herself as "feminine" and "delicate" was disturbing. Sounds like she just wanted to humble-brag about fitting into a conventional gender role.

Lana lost when she name dropped artists like Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj who are constantly critiqued for things she stated in her rant(especially because of the amount of hate Beyoncé received because she was talking about police brutality in her music/people even threatened to lynch her). Lana bout to get *CYBER BULLIED*

‪Lana’s post would’ve been fine if she didn’t compare herself to mostly black female entertainers who have faced tremendous criticism in their careers. Then again the people she mentioned are just the bigger female names in music. ‬

7:47 dude you just explained what I have been thinking everytime one of her stans wants to undermine new artists or smaller artists when it comes in doing alternative music, saying that they could have never had the success or inspiration without Lana. For some reason some of her stans think that *all* alternative artists have had Lana as an inspiration. Look, I'm not saying Lana didn't made an impact on this industry or influence some edgy artists that today exist, I think she is really creative and I really like a lot of her songs. But I really don't see her as the woman who started alternative music or the *only* one who made it more acceptable for mainstream media. I know she sometimes doesn't get enough credit, and I'm not here trying to take her influence on music away from her. It just annoying how some of her stans act like she is the only one good enough to be alternative.
Rachel M
Rachel M:
Bro, I love Lana but even I don't want to be in that "mood" all the time. Her music isn't "happy" or something you can play ALL the time. Also, did she forget Adele and her incredible success for mellow music?

This just seemed so unnecessary.
Frankie Russell
Frankie Russell:
The problem is Lana's complaining about being criticized for lyrical content. And the women she mentioned are criticized for their image.

Leyou Andualem
Leyou Andualem:
You have to realize that Lana’s last album (Norman) was very different from the rest of her discography and was the most critically acclaimed. A lot of the positive reviews praised the “feminist”’ message of the album. But nowadays critics are coming around to respecting women who chose to make music that may have been considered “objectification” in previous years (like with lanas older albums). So I think Lana was just saying that all these other artists are getting love for things she has been criticized for but the truth is society/critics are just progressing enough to where all stories can be viewed as valid no matter if they are morally correct or not.

She talked about how now that these other artists are accepted with those kind of songs, she also wants to go back to her way of making music being the way she is, without being misunderstood. Also she named those artists because she likes them and never said they didn't have had a hard time coming up. She's talking about how she wants its NOW and how other people are NOW. I don't know why people don't get it how she isn't hating on anyone but the weird ways of the music industry.

Also she likes hip hop and those artists music. She would never be mad about why they're charting and she's not. It's more like she's scared and has been scared, to get backlash again.

Jungsus Xx:
Imagine saying you sing about love when you have to bash other women’s music to hype up what you do. Lana has gorgeous music, but she needs to work on her words, just because she doesn’t make music like the girls she mentioned doesn’t mean she’s superior.

(Btw Camila could be considered a minority in some ways. Shes Cuban which leads her into the Hispanic area.)

Fighting back against a culture by advocating for your right as a woman to act a certain way and then subsequently undercutting your point by seemingly not wanting to give the impression that you are emboldened or confident in your stance (see: last paragraph),

thereby *_placing yourself in a submissive role_* by being submissive about your stance on *_placing yourself in a submissive role_* in response to a culture that you feel is *_placing yourself in a submissive role_*

is incredibly fascinating in its poetic irony.

Lmao I love Lana’s music but she needs to also realize that her lyrics are not just problematic bc they’re “pick me.” She fetishizes toxicity not just submissiveness. “If he’s a serial killer then what’s the worst that can happen to a girl who’s already hurt?” But that shit sounds good so Imma keep listening haha and yess the irony of her claiming oppression by comparing herself to a group of mostly Black women was not lost on me either lmao the nerveee

i never liked her in the first place so HAHAHAH but the fact that she just seems to want to be in the 50’s so bad is disgusting, i hate when people say they were “born in the wrong generation” and wanna be born in the 50/60s were there was so much oppression for females, POC and etc. it pisses me off

It genuinely felt like she’s not looked at music for the past ten years, saw the charts this morning and made her entire opinion completely based off that. Just because some of the artists she mentioned are charting for sexualised music currently, doesn’t base their entire career based off that

The thing i'm surprised about is the fact she wants to be a Pop artist, as her music does not convey that. I thought she knew that she was kinda alternative and her market would be more niche than Ariana Grande for Christ's sake.

“Mayo Mischief” sounds like a fire song or album title though, where Lana cries and plays victim throughout the entire thing as she did here.
