lana del rey was a visual orgasm when she first came out.
the second time with “born to die“.
her visuals for that album era was everything.
the performances was left to be desired,
but she gave me life the way her music made me feel.
her music has gone left since her debut.
i’m not as hyped about her as i use to be.
when i saw that lana is trending today,
i thought it might have been a new single.
it was this ig post…
those alligators represent each one of those vixen ‘s stan bases she called out.
i like lana,
but ^this really ain’t it.
Starting off the letter with “for the culture” rubbed me the wrong way.
Calling out those “most black” singers and rappers made my skin crawl.
Promoting a poetry book after that rant made me vomit.
it reeked of “karen” entitlement and low-key jealousy.
lana has a lane she does pretty well in.
those other vixens do the same.
they get criticized for their shit as much as lana does for her past lyrics.
there is enough room at the table for everyone to eat.
that rant read like someone who is “on the way out” and feeling upset about it.
as much as i fucks with her,
she deserves the dragging she is getting tbh.
in this climate of racism and “privilege“,
this is not the time for anyone white to ranting and raving about feeling left out,
even though their skin colors has rewarded them success even if they’re mediocre.
i know the quarantine has folks bored,
but don’t ruin your career because of it.
