Lana Del Rey Says Feminism Is ‘Just Not An Interesting Concept’

Lana Del Rey Feminism


I'm in love.

Lana Del Rey opened up in a recent interview, denouncing feminism and discussing a mystery illness that afflicted her while touring in support of her 2012 debut Born to Die. Regarding her views on gender equality, she told Fader, "For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept. . . Whenever people bring up feminism, I'm like, god. I'm just not really that interested." She went on to say, "I'm more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what's going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities." Lana Del Rey's Odd 'Summertime Sadness' Success When asked more about her feelings on feminism, she defined the word. "My idea of a true feminist is a woman who feels free enough to do whatever she wants." And when the interviewer followed up that statement by asking her why she's often choked in her videos, she said, "I like a little hardcore love."

First, it's obvious that Lana Del Rey has access to some kickass drugs, but didn't she just say feminism is when a woman can do whatever she wants? So what exactly is the problem? Because if you're more concerned with whether or not a person finds your concept interesting rather than what she believes your concept actually means, then you're kind of a dick. And she's right, feminism isn't really all that interesting, because depending on who you ask, it's either about "women's equality" or "gender equality" then you have male femisnists and everything gets confusing then you get mad when I don't hold the door for you and your message gets kinda lost. I'm not sure why we haven't figured out that everything women and other minority groups want is already covered by the 14th amendment, but we're talking about women here, so it's alway less stressful when you make them feel important or that they're included in your plans besides showing up at a specific time so you can bang them. It sucks women still don't receive equal pay for equal work, but it usually ends up working itself out and you have a ton of fall back options. For example, if your job isn't paying you enough and you need some time to think about your next move, just get pregnant and your job will pay you to take vacation! That's pretty cool, right?!  Or just meet a rich guy, marry him, then hope he cheats on you. That's residual montly income right there. And if he refuses to pay, you can always say he's "not a real man" and embarrass him so he pays you! Maybe even more if you shut up about it! Or if you buy into the patriarchy and general consensus of doctors about living a healthy lifestyle to maintain an attractive body, people will actually pay you to let them see it on stage! You can make like $1,000 just for one song! That's really awesome. And if none of these options appeal to you, you can keep your job and save a lot of money due to the societal obligation that states men pay for all your dates. Dates can really add up, so think of all the money you're saving! That money can be better served for Starbucks or when H&M has a sale, especially for all the pumpkin spice. Ladies, you know I love you, but I feel like I didn't cover everything. Did I cover everything? Oh yeah, the engagement ring you can sale if true love doesn't work out. That's a pretty big one. Cha-ching!!
