Lana Del Rey is facing major backlash for a statement she just posted on Instagram, in which she seemed to drag singers like Beyoncé, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and Ariana Grande — and then wrote that she "really paved the way" for other female artists.
Lana opened her statement by saying she had a "question for the culture," and then calling out many female artists who, according to her, got famous for "songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, fucking, cheating, etc":
Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had numbers ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, fucking, cheating, etc. — can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money — or whatever I want — without being crucified or saying that I'm glamorizing abuse??????
