Lana Del Rey's latest album 'Chemtrails Over the Country Club' has been an eagerly anticipated project. On any other day, Lana's latest update would be a cause of much rejoicing, but now that she has shared the album's tracklist and black and white artwork for the same, she is trending on social media for all the wrong reasons. In a long post she wrote about the artwork, Lana asked listeners to not make "a WOC/POC issue" adding that "I’m not the one storming the capital". And so, is now being slammed on Twitter for being a racist and a closet Trump supporter. Is Lana one though?



 

Taking to Instagram to share her latest update about 'Chemtrails Over the Country Club', Lana wrote a very long comment in the post explaining the artwork. "I also want to say that with everything going on this year! And no this was not intended-these are my best friends, since you are asking today. And damn! As it happens when it comes to my amazing friends and this cover yes there are people of color on this records picture and that’s all I’ll say about that but thank you. My beautiful friend Valerie from Del Rio Mexico, my dearest friend Alex and my gorgeous friend Dakota Rain as well as my sweetheart Tatiana. these are my friends this is my life. We are all a beautiful mix of everything- some more than others which is visible and celebrated in everything I do. In 11 years working I have always been extremely inclusive without even trying to. My best friends are rappers my boyfriends have been rappers. My dearest friends have been from all over the place, so before you make comments again about a WOC/POC issue, I’m not the one storming the capital, I’m literally changing the world by putting my life and thoughts and love out there on the table 24 seven. Respect it," she wrote. 

Not all were in a mood to listen and her explainer may have rubbed some the wrong way. "Lana Del Rey really just released an album and then was racist in the post trying to say she wasn’t a racist. Just say you didn’t want your album to succeed girl," a user shared on Twitter.



 

 

It looks like Lana might be trying a bit too hard to seem not racist. And people on social media might have caught up with that. "People constantly call her a racist/trump supporter and she just tries to rip that label of her as she’s never been any of those things," one pointed out. "“I’m not the one storming the Capitol” Lana Del Rey really just said I’m not Trump supporter so therefore I can’t be racist. Also she really needs to learn when to shut her mouth," another commented. 



 

 



 

 

"I remember last year she said some snide remark about women of color being overly and aggressively sexual and charting while she can’t have her daddy complex and be on the charts. I haven’t forgotten." In 2020, following controversies, she had taken to Instagram to share "I f**king love these singers and know them," referring to Doja Cat, Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Kehlani, Nicki Minaj, and Beyoncé, who, in the previous day's post she claimed "have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, fucking, cheating etc."



 

The singer's latest Instagram post is now filled with comments of shock, disbelief and pure anger. "Girl, if you don't shut your mouth...you're only making shit harder for yourself. you literally didn't need to say anything about this," one wrote. "Lana we're tired please stop, your white is showing," another added. 

It has also earned her the tag of being a Trump supporter. "Lana Del Rey confirmed among those performing at Trump’s inauguration as president of the confederate states of America 2," one tweeted. "Lana del rey really turned into to that aunt that claims she didn't vote for trump but everyone in the family knows she lowkey agrees with what he stands for," another added.
