People found plenty of humor in her questionable words.
If you’ve been on social media today, you probably know by now that Lana Del Rey kicked off everyone’s Thursday morning with a controversial Instagram post.
In a statement, she seemingly dragged huge female artists — including Beyoncé, Cardi B, and Nicki Minaj — and said that if they’re allowed to sing about “being sexy, wearing no clothes, fucking, cheating, etc.,” then she should be allowed to sing about “being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money.”
She also claimed that she “paved the way” for female artists to “be able to say whatever the hell they wanted to in their music.” That didn’t sit well with people.
