  1. Tensions continue to rise in the US amidst the Black Lives Matter protest, a response to the unjust killing of George Floyd by a police officer. Protests are popping up in major cities, which are also inspiring people to loot. Lana Del Rey shared some footage of the looting in LA, which fired up Tinashe. Tinashe is likely upset because it could potentially lead to the arrests of the people looting. Thoughts? Was Lana in the wrong? Related:
  2. I don't know if you already discuss this, but back in December, some guy recorded a video when we can see Lana del Rey up in a beautiful vintage car in the streets of L.A, shooting a new video. Back then we thought it was for California or another single from Norman ******* Rockwell, but no, gurls... The marketing Queen knew she needed a video for the new era ASAP and she filmed just 4 months after NFR release date. I have the proof right here: It's not the first time she did this with a new single. I remember she filmed "Love", the first single of Lust for Life much before she even said something about it. And she gave us Honeymoon just one year after Ultraviolence. She's ready and she's comingo for blood!!!!!!!
  3. Lana Del Rey went on another Instagram rant. I don't have the energy to detail everything that went down prior to this latest clip. You can read more about it here. In her new video, it's clear Lana doesn't understand the ramifications for her past posts. She also name-drops FKA Twigs. “Hey, so I don’t want to beat a dead horse and I don’t want to go on and on about this post, but I just want to remind you that in that post – my one and only personal declaration I’ve ever made, thanks for being so warm and welcoming – was about the need for fragility in the feminist movement. It’s gonna be important," she said. “And when I mentioned women who look like me, I didn’t mean white like me, I mean the kind of women who other people might not believe, because ‘Oh look at her, she ******* deserves it’ or whatever.” Lana used the drama as an opportunity to announce her new album title, Chemtrails Over The Country Club. She continued, “I’m not the enemy and definitely not racist” in the video, continued, “I just think it’s sad the women I mentioned, whether they sing about dancing for money – the same stuff, by the way, I’ve been singing about chronically for 13 years… yes, they are my contemporaries. The difference is, when I get on the pole people call me a w***e, but when [FKA] Twigs gets on the pole, it’s art. I’m reminded constantly by my friends, that lyrically there are layers and complicated psychological factors that play into some of my songwriting. “The culture is super sick right now. And the fact that they want to turn my post, my advocacy for fragility into a race war… it’s really bad.” Related:
  4. Zara is not here for Lana Del Rey's viral rants. She posted a statement about it. Nnnn not her inserting herself into the drama but she makes valid points. “Serious question for the culture (lol): haven’t ‘delicate’ and ‘soft’ women always been celebrated? It’s literally the ‘ideal’ woman. For decades women have been seen as delicate and soft as well as passive and submissive. And if A woman didn’t fit into that standard she was frowned upon,” she said. “I do agree that sometimes women today, because we had to fight for the right to change the narrative and to authoritarian, lead, and to own our sexuality, have to put on a ‘strong girl’ facade to be seen as a ~true~ Feminist, when the truth is, women (and every other gender) is sometimes strong and sometimes soft. And you should be able to express yourself in whatever light you may wanna be in, ’cause that’s the reality. People are multidimensional. But…fight for the right to be soft? Is it necessary?” she said. “When I released ‘Ruin My Life’ I was scared I was gonna get comments about how I glamorized abusive relationships (and I did get them). I understand where they’re coming from, but as an artist I wanted to express my feelings that I had in a previous toxic relationship and I should be allowed to do that, even tho I’m a feminist!!!! Feeling like you want to ruin your life is f–ked up, but at one point I wanted that more than being without him. BUT my artistic freedom shouldn’t be the center of a feministic debate, because I think they’re way more important topics, like actual domestic abuse. Ya feel?” If you're unsure what Lana said, I'll include the related-Topics at the bottom of this post. Thoughts? Do you agree with Zara? Related:
  5. A few fans were discussing Lana's mental health in a group text on Instagram that apparently included Lana. She read the messages and told them to f--- off. Lana wrote two letters in two days. If you're a bit lost, check out those Topics at the bottom of this post. Can you imagine your fave telling you that?! I- On the other hand, imagine a bunch of your fans (strangers as well) discussing your state of mind. She just doesn't want to put up with it, so I get that too. However, there's definitely a way to go about conveying things. It's not what you say, it's HOW you say it. Maybe Lana will register an Exhale account and tell me to F off next Related:
  6. Lana Del Rey wrote a note to fans venting her frustration about claims that she glamorizes abuse. She genuinely wants to know why some our biggest female artists out right now, like Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Doja Cat, Cardi B and more, can unapologetically sing about $ e x, but she's not given the freedom to sing about what she wants. BTW, I don't think she's dragging the artists mentioned, just pointing out a double standard. "I'm fed up with female writers and alt singers saying that I glamorize abuse when in reality I'm just a glamorous person singing about the realities of what we are all now seeing are very prevalent emotionally abusive relationships all over the world." She added: "There has to be a place in feminism for women who look and act like me -- the kind of woman who says no but men hear yes -- the kind of women who are slated mercilessly for being their authentic, delicate selves," the post continued. Read the full note below. Thoughts?! Related:
  7. From the very start, I knew that collab with Ariana was a bad idea. I know she's everywhere these days, but I thought the song was awful, and the only part I liked was Lana's. After everything that happened yesterday, it seems like Ariana was angry at Lana. In a recent post, Lana said Ariana and Doja Cat gave her a feedback and she kind of said they did not want to be associated with her. Now we can see Lana just unfollowed Ariana, and that's the end of that friendship. Not surprised that Ariana didn't get it. Her ego is huge. Related:
  8. Lana Del Rey wrote a followup letter to fans after shouldering a wave of backlash for her initial post. “A couple of final notes on my ‘controversial post’ that’s not controversial at all. Despite the feedback I’ve heard from several people that I mentioned in a complementary way, whether it be Ariana or Doja Cat—I want to say that I remain firm in my clarity and stance in that what I was writing about was the importance of self advocacy for the more delicate and often dismissed, softer female personality.” Lana added that “there does have to be room for that type in what will inevitably become a new wave/3rd wave of feminism that is rapidly approaching. Watch!” She continued: Perhaps I could’ve given more context to my post by mentioning the title of the second book that would be out next March called behind the iron gates - insights from an institution I’m sorry that the folks who I can only assume are super trump/pence supporters or hyper liberals or flip-flopping headline grabbing critics can’t read and want to make it a race war, when in fact the issue was with *female critics and *female alternative artists who are dissociated from their own fragility and sexuality and berate more sexually liberated artists like myself and the women I mentioned. But in truth making it about race says so much more about you than it does about me—you want the drama, you don’t want to believe that a woman could be beautiful, strong, and fragile at the same time, loving and all inclusive by making personal reparations simply for the joy of doing it it [sic]. Nothing new here in your reaction. Same as ten years ago when a million think pieces came out about me feigning emotional fragility or lying about coming from no money when that was the truth." Lana defended herself in the comments section of her initial post yesterday. “I ******* love these singers and know them,” referring to Doja Cat, Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Kehlani, Nicki Minaj, and Beyoncé, who, in yesterday’s post, she claimed, “have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, *******, cheating etc.” She continued, “#that is why I mentioned them I would also like to have some of the same freedom of expression without judgment of hysteria. There you go.” Lana also addressed the elephant in the room: that the women she mentioned were women of color. “Bro. This is sad to make it about a WOC issue when I’m talking about my favorite singers,” Lana wrote. “I could’ve literally said anyone but I picked my favorite ******* people.” She added: “And this is the problem with society today, not everything is about whatever you want it to be. It’s exactly the point of my post—there are certain women that culture doesn’t want to have a voice it may not have to do with race I don’t know what it has to do with. I don’t care anymore but don’t ever ever ever ever bro- call me racist because that is bull****.” Here's another comment she left: "By the way the singers I mentioned are my favorite singers so if you want to try and make a bone to pick out of that like you always do be my guest, it doesn’t change the fact that I haven’t had the same opportunity to express what I wanted to express without being completely decimated and if you want to say that that has something to do with race that’s your opinion but that’s not what I was saying." "And my last and final note on everything—when I said people who look like me—I meant the people who don’t look strong or necessarily smart, or like they’re in control etc. it’s about advocating for a more delicate personality, not for white woman—thanks for the Karen comments tho. V helpful" Related:

  10. Ever since Lana released her 7-million no. 2 sophomore album, Born to Die... Lana has managed to release 6 studio albums (her most recent being NFR released in 2019) in which 4 have received massive critical acclaim from the GP, fans and critics. So, of these 6 studio albums, which was Lana's best work and worst album ? Vote in the poll!
  11. Lana Del Rey got her first dose of success in 2011, when her homemade music video for her song "Video Games" went viral. Clips of Hollywood glamour and vintage nostalgia were backed by the melancholic love song. In a pop culture landscape dominated by manufactured controversy, popstars, and aggressive EDM parties, Lana Del Rey was a breath of fresh air. “Video Games” brought in a wave of vulnerability, reflection, classicism, and sadness that was nowhere to be found in the pop music world. Furthermore, Lana came into an industry where pop songs often had multiple songwriters, producers, and vocal effects, and where artists often had entire machines behind them. On the flip side, “Video Games” was written by Del Rey and only one other songwriter, only had one producer, all of the vocals were Del Rey’s, and she created, recorded, edited, and released the music video herself. It’s not uncommon nowadays for popstars to write their own music videos and come up with ideas for their music videos. In fact, you’ll find it hard for audiences to embrace popstars without this level of genuineness nowadays. But back then, this hands-on, personal approach was rare in pop music. “Video Games” was only just the start of Lana Del Rey’s influence that would come to alter the pop music landscape for years to come. In a time before mental health had come to the forefront, Lana Del Rey took sad music and struggling mental health to the mainstream. She showed people that it okay to be sad. She was ahead of the “sad culture” that seems to be so prevalent today. Even emo rap, which you wouldn’t think would have any connection to a female popstar, wouldn’t have been possible without Del Rey bringing depression to the forefront of music. Del Rey was also first to bring the sexual version of “Daddy” mainstream, and she did it often. Now, take a look at any large college campus and you’re bound to find at least one girl wearing a baseball cap with “Daddy” written on it. Del Rey revived an alternative sector of the pop music genre, paving the way for artists that ultimately became more successful and recognized than Del Rey herself, despite them having Del Rey to thank for their potential. Artists like Lorde, Billie Eilish, and Melanie Martinez embraced this alternative pop music genre. Lana Del Rey broke the boundaries of music genres and was one of the first to begin mixing music genres. Her first album, “Born to Die” mixed hip hop beats with classical strings, and melancholic, swinging vocals. Her music is so distinct that the music genre, sadcore, was essentially created to describe her music. Moving to the visual aspects of pop culture, Lana Del Rey’s grandiose and creative music video began inspiring other popstars as well. Take a look at Del Rey’s “Ride” music video, which includes a poetic monologue. Compare that to Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” monologue and Camila Cabello’s “What Do I Know About Love?” monologue. Del Rey was also arguably the first to do any sort of “visual album.” Her short film, “Tropico” included a main storyline with 3 of her songs intertwined into that storyline. 3 years later, Beyonce releases her “Lemonade” visual album, with her entire album intertwined into a visual storyline. Contrasting with the conventionally attractive male models usually included in pop music videos, Del Rey was the first to start bringing a diversity of male models into her videos, including slim tattooed “alternative” models, middle aged men with dad bods, older men, an albino male model, and A$AP Rocky to be portrayed as JFK. When it comes to body image issues, self-love, and a greater range of diverse representation in the media, once again, Del Rey was ahead of the curve. Additionally, Lana Del Rey inspired a whole era of the “Tumblr aesthetic” including flower crown, pouting faces, and vintage Hollywood glamour style. She inspired the looks of the first social media influencers. It’s a shame how little Del Rey is recognized for being such a trailblazing pioneer in pop music and pop culture. Do you think Lana has been underappreciated as a pop culture force?
  12. Lana Del Rey is hard at work on new music while the world is put on pause because of the Coronavirus. They're also COVID-19-related. We love a theme. The working titles are “If This Is The End… I Want A Boyfriend” and “Grenadine Quarantine.” If this is more freestyle poetry or related to Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass then she can keep it. Otherwise, bring on the depressive bops! Thoughts on these song titles?
  13. Lana cancelled her tour on doctor's orders because she lost her singing voice I was gonna see her tomorrow in Amsterdam. I'm so bummed. We're getting a refund for our tickets so no chance to see her in the near future In a statement, Lana says, “Sorry to let everyone down so last minute but this illness has taken me by surprise and have totally lost my singing voice. Dr has advised 4 weeks off for the moment. I hate to let everyone down but I need to get well.” She has no plans to reschedule any of the dates. Lana also has festival shows booked, including Lollapalooza festivals in Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. She’s also booked for Coachella and Bonnaroo in the US and Primavera, NOS Primavera, We Love Green, and Glastonbury in Europe. It's unclear if she'll perform them or not. She may have enough time to heal her voice by then.
  14. GOOD MORNING, ANGELS. The rumors were true! Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey recorded a new song titled “Angels” for the forthcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot.
  15. Guys, I know there's been going on a big wave of threads, but I can't help it. It's a question and maybe a enlightment. I am big fan of Lana Del Rey, as much as I'm Britney's. Her last album sold 115k in the first week, and she's much less relevant than Britney and did zero (I mean, actually less than zero). How can Britney, who has sell tons and tons of albuns (even Circus who was recent was 500k), sell so little? I can't realy believe it. Do you have any explanation? Even Britney Jean, which was released with zero buzz sold 107k. What makes Glory being predicted to sell 120k, being awesome with all types of promos? Enlighten me, please.
