Watch: Lana Del Rey Reignites Racism Backlash With New Statement / Compares Herself to FKA Twigs

Published: Monday 25th May 2020 by Rashad

“…when I get on the pole people call me wh*re, but when [FKA] twigs gets on the pole, it’s art.”

Stinging words from Lana Del Rey who – days after being slammed for commentary against Beyoncé, Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj, and Kehlani that many deemed racist – continues to campaign on social media in her own defense.

Previously relying on worded Instagram posts to combat the critics, Del Rey most recently uploaded a video to express her disappointment with the response to her openness.  During the 6 minute rant, the GRAMMY nominee revealed:

“The very first time I decide to tell you anything about my life…200,000 hateful, spiteful comments come in, my phone number leaked, and comments like, ‘You f*cking white bitch’. It’s the opposite of the spirit of an advocate…but it’s not gonna stop me. Period.”

That’s not all she said.  Look inside to hear her double down for the umpteenth time about her refusal to apologize:

    How self important do you have to be to think people call you a w**** because you talentlessly try to work a pole and not because you sing about fvcking 90 year old men for old rusty ass coins??? Lana, Sit. Down. And please entertain the possibility that these women get away with being s***, because they are. And you don’t, because you’re not. Think about it sis.

      She is though.

      • Hmmm… May 25, 2020

        I’m sure she is to the sugar babies and old geezers ready to kick the bucket that she appeals to. But thats how she’s positioned herself and her “art”. Her aesthetic is pretty specific. And her inability to see that just shows she lacks self awareness.

        Shes conflating all of her problems. She doesn’t get criticized because she talks about s3x. She gets criticized because she glamorizes being a gold digging plaything for rich married men. E.g., Ultraviolence in its near entirety. She doesn’t get criticized for getting on a pole, she gets criticized because she doesn’t know how to use it. Maybe she needs to accept the fact that people dont have a random vendetta to subdue her sexuality and hers alone, and consider the possibility that she just didn’t know how to leverage it. Because every single one of the women she’s named have been, more PUBLICLY than she EVER has, criticized for their lyrics, relationships, clothes, etc. too. So what is really her excuse? Because she’s not being singled out for talking about s3x like she says she is.

    She’s taking the Kanye West approach and, it’s working.

    • Clarks0o0ñ May 25, 2020

      Honey kanye isnt as dumb as this
      Kanye is also black, so he can speak about oppression and challenges he faces in the music business

      Lana is WHITE
      She was born a Rich white privileged girl.

      • my+name May 25, 2020

    • Hologram May 25, 2020

      @onlyfacts stfu , Normanly is burying herself in flopness madness lmfaooooooooo

  4. Adelaide May 25, 2020

    From the very start I knew the kind of person Lana was and is proving to be in these last few days. Her whole “victim”, broken girl shtick was tired from the very start and sends an awful message to women everywhere!

    Shame on everyone who supports this vile woman. Shame!

    • Paulo May 25, 2020

      my feelings exactly

  5. Biancacook May 25, 2020

    I’m confused at what ppl are mad about. Isn’t this the same thing nicki pretty much said a few yrs back that started the beef with miley just reversed? I mean this is HER experience. These girls have def been criticized but the same time extremely praised and applauded. I don’t think she said anything racist. Ppl pick n choose on things that’s why I hate this cancel culture. Cardi gets called names for doin the same things all these other girls been doin etc. Point is ppl pick n chooses based off of who the like and dont like

    • FAF May 25, 2020

      But it’s different because nicki is black and from a poor background Lana is someone who manufactured her blonde middle class conservative background into a dark persona. She’s trying to be oppressed. And idk why

  6. May 25, 2020

    She is really milking this, a lot of people knew this was a pub stunt from the get-go.

    • Justmeeeee May 25, 2020

      Exactly….plays the white girl victom role…
      So tired & predictable.

      Thus chick WANTS attention
      She was triggered by the success of 4 black women on top of the charts SO instead of asking tge fans who BOUGHT their songs about their personal preference of music choice…

      Just admit that you were Jealous in that moment and get the hell on.
      She is NOT winning fans and the attention thst she wants is actually pity
      Girl Bye

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 26, 2020

        Lana is more successful than this bitchez

    • Charli+Cheer+Up May 25, 2020

      Yeah kinda is with her new LP in the horizon.

  7. Ropeburn May 25, 2020

    Plenty of folks actually proving her point by telling her to shut up cause she’s White. I do wish she would stop dragging other people’s names into the mix though. This is getting way too damn messy.

    • Justmeeeee May 25, 2020

      Ehat she is whining about is utter bullsh!t, THEN on top of that she is trying to act her being white has nothing yo do with it when it has everything yo do with her jealous- hearted claims.
      People see right through her

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 26, 2020

        Why she jealous these s**** girls? if she wants she can b slutter than them

  8. Jonathan May 26, 2020

    I stand with Lana! I read and understood exactly what she meant and didn’t even think about race as an issue. It’s pathetic how often people pull the race card now days.

    • Justmeeeee May 26, 2020

      She is Jealous because we are outshining her and her fragile ego can’t take it….
      Deal with it.
      Buh- Bye
