Lana Del Rey, Billboard award-winner, Golden Globe and Grammy-nominated artist, Met Gala attendee, and cover girl of this month’s Interview Magazine–has said that she will “die an underdog.” So… is she suggesting something will happen between now and then? No, Lana was just singing some more self-inflicted blues as she got interviewed by her Norman Fucking Rockwell co-writer/co-producer, Jack Antonoff, and claimed she’ll end her career being misunderstood. I wonder if she brought a little tiny violin to the interview with her or if they had one already prepared?
Over the weekend, many celebrities spoke up about the Black Lives Matter demonstrations brought on after the police killing of George Floyd. Some celebrities even took part in the protests. Lana Del Rey was having a rough week with the black community, so maybe she decided to show she was sorry by going to a protest herself? Well, it didn’t end up going as well as you’d think, as she posted some incriminating video of protestors to her Instagram and got called out by Tinashe and Kehlani. Wait until they find out she dated a cop.
I hope Alison Roman spent some of her time off baking a batch of “The Cookies” to put in the gift basket she owes Lana Del Rey as a thank you for acting as a human shield this week. Thanks to Lana, things are almost back to normal wherein Alison Roman’s existence is but a mere fact filed in the back of my mind like a can of chickpeas in my pantry that I keep forgetting about until I go to put away the new can I just bought like shit, now I have six. Yesterday, Alison tested the waters with a post confirming her leave from the New York Times by directing her followers to her newsletter. She also let us know that even though you’ve spent the past few weeks forgetting who she was, she’s been stewing (yes I did, deal with it) over her situation “24/7.”
Lana Del Rey Defended Her Comments Again, This Time Adding FKA Twigs To The List Of Women Who Have It Better Than Her
The artist formerly known as Lana Del Rey (I’m stripping her of her vaguely ethnic curly cues, she’s plain old Lizzy Grant again as far as I’m concerned) spent Memorial Day Weekend as most glamorous people do— recording a video denying she’s racist and doubling down on her victimhood. Yesterday, Liz posted a lengthy video on Instagram defending the controversial comments she made about “the culture” last week, adding FKA Twigs to her list of women she faces a double standard against and reiterating “the need for fragility in the feminist movement.” Then she unfollowed Ariana Grande on Instagram. Guys, she’s just a glamorous person. What more can I say?
Earlier this year when Lana Del Rey turned up at the Grammys rocking what looked like a $40 Chico’s dress and makeup that she clearly did herself in the bumpy cab ride over, it seemed pretty obvious that the girl has no stylist. Well, apparently she also doesn’t seem to have a publicist because nobody is stepping in to stop her from tweeting her career down the toilet. If anybody in the LDR camp is listening: head over to Lana’s bedroom, turn down the Doja Cat record, slap the Marlboro Lite out of her hand, and take her phone away!
A couple of days ago, Lana Del Rey proved that she doesn’t actually spend 14 hours a day sitting at a vintage vanity, brushing her hair a million times while blowing pink lipglossed kisses to a bottle of Valium. Lana had some things to say on Instagram about her position in the female pop singer pyramid, and so she wrote out a long piece on the matter and posted it to Instagram. According to Lana, she’s on the bottom row; supporting everyone above her while getting zero recognition for her efforts.
The internet took notice, not because they agreed that Lana was underrated and underappreciated, but because Lana chose to single out many high-profile women of color in her quest for success. Lana has responded to all the social media side-eye she received yesterday, and she would like everyone to know her message absolutely 100% did not come from a place of racism, and it’s the media who turned her Instagram post into a me-vs-them situation.
