"Now that Doja Cat, the Ariana, to Camila, the Cardi B, the Kehlani, the Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé managed to reach the top of a number with songs about being sexy, being naked, cheat, etc - can come back to sing about feeling lovely for being in love, even if the relationship is not flawless, without accusing me of romanticizing violence?"
While it doesn't appear that Lana was critiquing any of these singers, people found it odd that she was comparing herself to a group of mainly black female artists who experience the music industry very differently than she does and don't benefit from her white privilege. She expressed that she's "fed up with female writers and alt singers" who accuse her of glamorizing abuse.
The post has generated some mixed responses on social media. She also said in 2017 she no longer sings the line "he hit me and it felt like a kiss" from Ultraviolence.More news: Prince Charles calls for 'army of people' to help pick crops
In her initial post, the "Summertime Sadness" singer, 34, clapped back at accusations that her music glamorises abuse.
Lana writes, "Question for culture: Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f******, cheating etc".
On her earlier albums, Del Rey was tagged as "sadcore", The Los Angeles Times reported in October 2019, describing her career as "unusual in many ways". "I could have literally said anyone but I picked my favourite fucking people". 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.

Opinion has been divided between those who didn't see Lana calling out other stars, who she says are her biggest inspiration, as shady, and others who saw name-checking other stars, many of which are women of colour, as necessary or appropriate.
"Let's be clear, I'm not a feminist - but 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 singer continued.
"I f**king love these singers and know them".More news: United Kingdom track and trace system in place from June
