Lana Del Rey Claps Back At Critics Of Album Cover’s Racial Diversity…Before Being Critiqued

Published: Monday 11th Jan 2021 by Sam

Lana Del Rey isn’t afraid to address drama head-in.

And that seemingly extends to drama that hasn’t even manifested yet.

See what we mean below…

As reported, Del Rey revealed the cover and tracklist for new album ‘Chemtrails over the Country Club.’

The artwork showed the singer surrounded by a group of ladies and seemed tied into the theme of the LP.

In a unique move, the star commented on the image herself shortly after sharing it. The goal? To pre-emptively clap-back at any comments about a lack of racial diversity:

“I also want to say that with everything going on this year! And no this was not intended-these are my best friends, since you are asking today. And damn! As it happens when it comes to my amazing friends and this cover yes there are people of color on this records picture and that’s all I’ll say about that but thank you.

My beautiful friend Valerie from Del Rio Mexico, my dearest friend Alex and my gorgeous friend Dakota Rain as well as my sweetheart Tatiana.

these are my friends this is my life. We are all a beautiful mix of everything- some more than others which is visible and celebrated in everything I do. In 11 years working I have always been extremely inclusive without even trying to. My best friends are rappers my boyfriends have been rappers. My dearest friends have been from all over the place, so before you make comments again about a WOC/POC issue, I’m not the one storming the capital, I’m literally changing the world by putting my life and thoughts and love out there on the table 24 seven. Respect it.”

While arguably a random measure to take, Del Rey may be looking to avoid a repeat of the hot water she found herself in after an Instagram post she shared slamming claims she was “glamorizing abuse” with her music.

Within that post, she listed several female acts of color in both Pop and Hip-Hop – such as Beyonce, Cardi, B, Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande – whom, she said, “have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f*cking, cheating, etc.”

    Much ado about nothing. This record will flop whether or not POC are placed on the album cover.

    A white woman with other WW on her covers who cares….yall desperate for Lana del ray to be inclusive?
    She is a privileged chick who lives in a fantasy world of eras long gone. Let her live in her housewives 50s racist era?

    But please have some dignity stop begging for inclusion.

    No one was going to say anything. No one cares this ho bringing new album. She needed to drum up some controversy to let people know she’s on the way (again)

    Yes, because white rappers don’t exist, Lana.

    She should have just stopped at “my beautiful friends” instead of going on to stereotype black men as rappers in her argument to prove the opposite.

      Eminem, G-Eazy, Macklemore, etc.. bye.
