American singer-songwriter Lana del Rey, as of this writing, has been on the list of Twitter trending topics as fans of other female singers, including Ariana Grande, Cardi B, and Beyonce, hit back on her.
This came following her lengthy post on Instagram wherein she made “disappointing” comments on her peers’ music.
“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, fucking, cheating etc – can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money – or whatever I want – without being crucified or saying that I’m glamorizing abuse??????” the post read.
It quckly became a point of discussion on the micro-blogging site.

But Lana, who in the said post revealed she will be releasing her 7th album, dubbed as 'White Hot Forever' on September 5, 2020, addressed the issue in the comments section without letting the day pass.
"To be clear because I knowwwwww you love to twist things. I fucking love these singers and know them. #that is why I mentioned them I would also like to have some of the same freedom of expression without judgment of hysteria. There you go," she wrote. "By the way the singers I mentioned are my favorite singers so if you want to try and make a bone to pick out of that like you always do be my guest, it doesn’t change the fact that I haven’t had the same opportunity to express what I wanted to express without being completely decimated and if you want to say that that has something to do with race that’s your opinion but that’s not what I was saying."
