Lana Del Rey‘s no stranger to nabbing headlines for her outspokenness, a trait that’s now put her in the bad graces of Camila Cabello supporters.
Cabello’s fans, affectionately called #Camilizers, are slamming Del Rey for taking to Instagram to render what was perceived shade toward the former Fifth Harmony star’s announcement about her next solo project. As we reported here, Camila’s been teasing the effort with a slew of cryptic videos that reveal little more info than its premiere date (September 5th).
When comment creepers caught Del Rey saying ‘what the hell’ in response to the new music news, hell broke loose and led to a war between the singers’ respective fan bases.
After news of Del Rey’s comment (seen above) made its rounds, Camila fans went on the attack. Their stinging reactions reached the desk of the ‘Norman F*cking Rockwell’ singer who, in turn, quickly set the record straight.
“I meant what the hell in a good way,” she wrote in response to a fan’s question on Instagram. “As in it’s so good.”
Lana’s statement above may have quelled slams from #Camilizers, but her fans are still expressing their disapproval of Cabello and assumed the ‘what the hell’ comment was in reference to plagiarism. Accusing the 22-year-old of using her new material to copy the ‘Ride’ monologue from Del Rey’s 2012 major label debut album, ‘Born to Die,’ they took to Twitter in droves to call her out.
