Lana Del Rey done stepped in some ish. The singer, real name Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, went on a tirade about the double standards in pop music — however, she dragged Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Doja Cat and more into the conversation, and got dragged herself, in the process.

Lana seems to like a little controversy — this sin’t the first time she’s made off-the-cuff statements. However, it is the first time she’s tried to compare herself to Black female artists, which was just destined to go wrong from jump.

In an Instagram post (which is never the place for an attempt at profound statements), Del Rey revealed she believes she is being unfairly criticized for her music, while others are allowed to do as they please.

“I’m fed up with female writers and alt singers saying that I glamorize abuse when I’m just a glamorous person singing about the realities of what we are all seeing are now very prevalent emotionally abusive relationships all over the world.”

Alright, girl whatever. Lana would have been fine had she stopped there, but she didn’t.

“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, f - - king, 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?”

Girl, what?!

Look, Lana has the right to feel however she wants. But, where she messed up is by bringing in other artists, women of color at that, and trying to draw a weak comparison. Twitter, of course, let her have it…

But for all the dragging, she is receiving some support…

What side are you on?
