She said: "Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce have all had number ones about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f**king, cheating etc - can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling lovely by being in love even if the relationship is not ideal, or dancing for money - or whatever I want - without being crucified or saying that I'm glamorizing abuse?"

I don't know who was giving Lana Del Rey a hard time but I'm pretty sure it wasn't Black women.

Lana Del Rey announced the release date for her new album and slammed critics who say she "glamorizes abuse" in a lengthy Instagram post this morning-while simultaneously igniting the wrath of half a dozen music fandoms. The fans accused the singer of condemning other artists in order to defend and express her point of view, also asking that the publication be deleted.

Responding in the comments and her Instagram story, she wrote, "To be clear because I knowwwwww you love to twist things, I f-ing love these singers and know them. that is why I mention them".

In the post, the singer said that she is "not not a feminist" and that it's "pathetic" some have said her lyrics have set women "back hundreds of years".

"Reverse repo rate stands reduced to 3.35%", Shaktikanta said. "RBI's Monetary Policy Committee met again from May 20-22". The EMI payments will restart only once the moratorium time period expires on 31 August.

Lana del Rey did not give details about Norman Fucking Rockwell's successor!, the album with which she was named Grammy for Album of the Year in 2020, however, it is speculated that her new work will be titled White Hot Forever.

In her initial post, the "Summertime Sadness" singer, 34, clapped back at accusations that her music glamorises abuse.

However, Lana opened the statement by comparing herself to a group of female popstars and rappers, and people are calling her out for what she said about them. However, the singer has hit back at the criticism, describing: "This is sad to make it about a WOC issue when I'm talking about my favorite singers". "And this is the problem with society today", she wrote. "I don't care anymore but don't ever ever ever ever bro- call me racist because that is bulls-".

The post attracted some criticism from people, including the fact that most of the women singled out by Del Rey are women of colour.
