Summertime Sadness, Young and Beautiful, Queen Of Disaster, Born to Die and many others, Hollywood singer Lana Del Ray is known for her songs by far. The singer has managed to win some hearts worldwide with their peppy music, but there are a few who do not fancy her. Just recently, Hollywood singer Lana Del Ray took to her social media to share an open letter. In the open letter, Lana hit back at trolls as they made accusations at her that she is glamorising abuse and defended her comments made on female singers.
Taking to Instagram, Lana Del Ray shared a caption less string of two pictures of her open letter to fans. The post read, “Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyonce have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f--king, 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 I'm glamorizing abuse????" Ray then stated that she is fed up with female writers and alt singers who claim that she is glamorising abuse. She then went on to add that in reality, she is just a glamorous person singing about the realities of what we are all seeing now, referring to the emotionally abusive relationships all over the world.
The Summertime Sadness singer continued, “With all of the topics women are finally allowed to explore I just want to say over the last 10 years I think it's pathetic that my minor lyrical exploration detailing my sometimes submissive or passive roles in my relationships has often made people say I've set women back hundreds of years.” She then added that she is not a feminist, but mentioned that there has to be a place in feminism for women who look and act like her. Lana described that the kind of woman she is talking about in her open letter and went on to share that she has been honest and optimistic about the challenging relationships she has had.
