In Wild Instagram Post, Lana Del Rey Announces New Album & Airs Grievances

Thursday May 21, 2020

Lana Del Rey took to Instagram early Thursday morning to announce that she plans on releasing a new album on Sept. 5 and also defended her lyrics and her artistry.

"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.," she wrote in part.

"I'm fed up with female writers and alt singers saying that I glamorize abuse when in reality I'm just a glamorous person singing about the realities of what we are all now seeing are very prevalent emotionally abusive relationships all over the world," Lana added before going on to say she's " not 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 kind of women who are slated mercilessly for being their authentic, delicate selves, the kind of women who get their own stories and voices taken away from them by stronger women or by men who hate women," she wrote.

Lana finished her post by saying these topics will further be explored in her upcoming books of poetry as well as her new album, which she previously said might be called "White Hot Forever."

After sharing her lengthy note, Lana posted a photo of herself FaceTiming with producer Jack Antonoff.

Lana released "Norman Fucking Rockwell!" last year, which went on to be her most critically acclaimed album to date and was nominated for a Best Album of the Year Grammy.
