Lana Del Rey Claps Back at Beyoncé & Nicki MInaj Fans: ‘Don’t Ever Call Me Racist’

Published: Friday 22nd May 2020 by Rashad

After Lana Del Rey called out Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Kehlani Doja Cat, and more for ‘wearing no clothes’ and ‘singing about f*cking’ in an open letter to address double standards she faces, she managed to piss off almost every major stan base in music simultaneously (click here to read more).

Needless to say, she endured a merciless dragging as a result – namely from the fan bases of Minaj (#Barbz) and Bey (#Beyhive) who asserted Del Rey’s comments were race-driven due to the dearth of White Pop divas listed in her rant.

As the hoopla continued to dominate headlines, the ‘Born to Die’ diva is looking to dead it by slamming accusations of racism.

See her fiery response inside:


Del Rey via Instagram:

“To be clear because I knowwwwww you love to twist things, I f—ing love these singers and know them. that is why I mention them. I would also like to have some of the same freedom of expression without judgement of hysteria.”

Later, she continued:

“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—ing 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—.” By the way the singers I mentioned are my favorite singers so if you want to try and make a bone to pick out of that like you always do be my guest, it doesn’t change the fact that I haven’t had the same opportunity to express what I wanted to express without being completely decimated and if you want to say that that has something to do with race that’s your opinion but that’s not what I was saying.”

She concluded by writing:

“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.”

    I don’t this she’s racist but I can see how ppl got upset about her talking negatively about their faves. If you criticize all black artists and 1 soulful white artist its bound to make ppl side eye you if you are white. I think it’s weird that she says they are her faves n friends but she shaded them. That doesn’t sound friendly.

    Help her lord

    • Lanafan1 May 23, 2020

      Yeah, no. Nothing about what she said says racist. Especially when she has praised these women openly in the past! 😂

  3. Only Facts May 22, 2020

    Yes Lana!! You are not racist at all! Get them together!

  4. tyty May 22, 2020

    It’s mostly her own fans attacking her though 🤷🏽‍♀️ and white feminists…..

  5. #TheTruth May 22, 2020

    She should have known better. It was easy to see that coming. She’s not new in this industry.

    Did u see the way see mentioned only relevant girls


    When did she mention normani or dua, that’s right both of them dont have number 1’s.
    No number one song, no number one album
    We love to see it

    • Meme May 22, 2020

      No she simply mentioned girls who wear no clothes and sing about f**king.

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 22, 2020

        Ur upset she didn mention Rihanna
        Nobody remembers rihanna as a musician,
        Rihanna is an avon lady.
        She didnt even write many of her number 1’s

        She mentioned relevant girls and Camila is on that lost even those she hasnt released any new songs in 2020.
        Her power

      • Bogus May 22, 2020

        Actually she claims these are artist she listens to YOU make everything a competition

    I get Genevieve Gertrude better.

    She demands there be a negative correlation between a bad ass pen and being bodacious, sassy, and Terry-Crews-intense on stage.

    Aka mousy wanna roar lyrically.

  8. stan May 22, 2020

    she could’ve left this whole thing in draft.

  9. eric May 22, 2020

    I don’t think it’s a race issue. I felt like she was talking about current top artists with a #1. The wording was bad, because it sounded like she had something better to offer than what the other ladies have been getting noticed for. She was very blunt when talking about their work, but when it came to her own it’s “singing about being in love even if the relationship is not perfect.” So I don’t completely buy her explanation, but I also don’t think racism is involved.

    F*** you Karen

  11. Edward+Norton May 22, 2020

  12. Only Facts May 22, 2020

    #DojaCatIsOverParty trending on twitter after being revealed that she supports alt-white (AKA anti black groups). How are y’all going to spin this now? I told y’all, all of LA knows how evil this girl is. Lana probably leaked the screenshots 🤣

    • Queen Nicki Minaj May 22, 2020

    • PinotNoir May 23, 2020
