In an extensive Instagram post, Lana del Rey not only announces her album, which will be released on September 5, but also lashes out at people who criticize her. The singer writes that she is tired of not being allowed to sing about what she wants to sing about.
Now that Doja Cat, Ariana (Grande, ed.), Camila (Cabello, ed.), Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had hits with songs about being sexy, walking around naked, having sex, cheating and more, may I please sing about feeling strong and beautiful because I am in love, even if the relationship is not perfect? ”said the 34-year-old singer on Instagram .
Del Rey says she’s fed up with other female writers and artists saying she makes violence in a relationship seem “glamorous.” “While I’m just a glamorous person singing about reality and what we all see in the world now.”
In the past, singer Lorde, among others, has criticized the lyrics of Del Rey, because the lyrics would encourage women to submit to a man.
Del Rey now says that she thinks it is important to be honest in her lyrics and says she is annoyed that she gets so much criticism. The singer plans to release her new album on September 5 and also be as honest as possible.
