Lana Del Rey uploaded yet another post addressing the controversy surrounding her comments about other successful female artists like Beyoncé, Doja Cat, and Ariana Grande among others.
In a six-minute black-and-white video captioned “Nobody gets to tell your story,” Del Rey attempts to justify her comments about her position in the music industry and the glamorization of abuse which drew criticism on the internet for being tone deaf and racially insensitive. She also brought in another artist of color, FKA Twigs, saying, “when I get on the pole people call me a whore, but when twigs gets on the pole it’s art.”
“You can call me whatever,” Del Rey added. “I’m sorry that I didn’t add one Caucasian, 100% Caucasian person into the mix of the women that I admire. It really says more about you than it does about me.” She said that her original post had resulted in hundreds of thousands of negative comments and someone releasing her private phone number.
