Last May, Del Rey came under fire for an Instagram post she posted in which she hit back at claims she was “glamorously abusing” with her music. In her post, she named a number of female artists in pop and hip-hop – including Doja Cat, Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Kehlani, Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé – who she said wrote, “Have had numbers one with songs being sexy, not wearing clothes, fucking, cheating etc.” “.
She added, “With all of the subjects that women are finally allowed to explore, I just want to say that over the past ten years, I find it pathetic that my minor lyrical exploration detailing my sometimes submissive or passive roles in my relationships has taken place. Often made people say that I ‘made women go back hundreds of years.
She later denied that her post was an attack on the artists she named, most of whom are women of color, calling “a headline grabbing critics.” [who] I don’t know how to read and I want to make a race war of it ”and claiming that the singers she spoke about were some of her favorite artists. She also posted a video post, in which she discussed “the need for fragility in the feminist movement” and further responded to claims that her post was racist.
“I’m not the enemy, and I’m certainly not a racist, so don’t twist it. No one can tell your story except you, and that’s what I’ll be doing in the next two books. So God bless you and yes fuck yourself if you don’t like the message, ”she said.
