Lana Del Rey Will Release A Spite Album

Lana Del Rey will release a spite album

 

Lana Del Rey is claiming she wants revenge, but what is this all about? One thing is sure, she is a prolific singer-songwriter: she has just announced the release of another album, ‘Rock Candy Sweet’ (set for June 1st), while ‘Chemtrails Over the Country Club’ is not even a week old! But revenge?

According to several publications, and mostly Harper’s Bazaar that published an article about the songstress just 2 months ago, Lana Del Rey is a controversial figure. How did we reach that point?

Her pseudonym ‘Lana Del Rey’ has been called an ‘appropriation of Cuban culture,’ her storylines have been judged to be appropriations ‘of low-income neighborhoods populated by people of color.’ And even when she sings ‘Brooklyn Baby,’ she is still faulty because she fails to mention gentrification that displaced Black residents who could not afford the skyrocketing rents. People have even criticized the braided hairstyle she wore in a 2019 video, another so-called ‘cultural appropriation,’ and even when women of color make an apparition in her work, we are told that ‘they are deprived of voice and agency.’ Everything that Lana Del Rey does is heavily scrutinized and criticized under the very woke lens of 2021. And this is becoming ridiculous.

She has tried to respond to critics but has only managed to worsen her case: she clumsily declared ‘my best friends are rappers, my boyfriends have been rappers,’ in an awkward attempt to prove she had Black friends, and she has even tried to dissociate herself from the pro-Trump crowd: ‘I’m not the one storming the capital.’ Her defensive tone has been honestly quite bizarre as if she was trying too much. But at the same time, none of the previous accusations looked justified. Art should not obey any irrealistic woke ideology.

Lana Del Rey got in more trouble with the woke culture when she name-checked a series of female artists while lamenting that culture had reduced the music of her fellow female artists to ‘wearing no clothes, cheating, fucking.’ Since all the female artists she included in her rant all happen to be non-white (Beyoncé, Doja Cat, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Kehlani, and Camilla Cabello), she only did more damage to her reputation of all-white glamor, insensible to the cause of people of color. At the top of this, Lana has also paused as a non-feminist and that was more than enough to bury her image under the most offensive sins.

‘Just want to say thank you again for the kind articles like this one and for reminding me that my career was built on cultural appropriation and glamorizing domestic abuse. I will continue to challenge those thoughts on my next record June 1 titled ‘Rock Candy Sweet,’ she wrote in an Instagram story including a screenshot of the Harper’s Bazar article. ‘You’re right, it would have been unnecessary if no one had significantly criticized everything about the album, to begin with. But you did. And I want revenge,’ she added in a response to the author of the Harper’s Bazaar article who was criticizing her once again for defending herself a bit too much.

Lana is mad but could her next album be an act of revenge from critics? Can you even do that? Should an artist do that? Revenge has always been a great motivation in life, but is responding to the critics even worth it? If we believe her, Lana Del Rey will release a spite album. She is truly a unique artist, I cannot think of anyone else announcing a new album and saying it’s released just for revenge.
