#LanaDelReyPartyIsOver trends as Beyonce and Nicki Minaj's fans call singer ‘whitewashed privileged chick’
Lana Del Rey shared a bombastic long post on Instagram and called out her fellow singers Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé for songs about "being sexy, wearing no clothes, f**king, cheating", which left music lovers shocked. The singer announced her upcoming album which was going to launch on September 5 and she shed light on the double standards of the music industry, emphasizing on how she was trolled for her romantic songs which talk about "being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect."
However, her words came as a nightmare to fans and followers of all the singers she called out in her post and within minutes, hashtags like #LanaDelReySTFU and #LanaDelReyisOverParty started trending on Twitter. "#Beyoncé ain’t out there showing her skin, she’s proud of being a black woman and a black icon, and for #LanaDelRay to come at her is over. #LanaDelRayisOverParty," one fan wrote.
"Lana making it seem like she’s the only one getting hate for posting the music she likes, then in the same a** post calls out 6 artists for making music that they like....make it make sense #LanaDelRayisOverParty," one fan posted and another said, "#LanaDelRayisOverParty it’s so funny that now that 4 women of color are on the charts, Lana all of the sudden wants to put her two sense in. Like girl go announce your tired a** album and leave." Some felt she should have dragged men into her post instead of just talking about the female singers. "I would have loved it if Lana dragged men that don't get criticized for their music ..but coming for women that have been dragged all through their career is dumb as hell..girl please #Lana #LanaDelRay #LanaDelRayisOverParty."
"Every female artist will not collaborate with her anymore we love to see it #LanaDelRayIsOverParty," one fan posted and another wrote, "So Ariana kindly gave her a featuring and she ruined the song and now she’s saying this about her ?? bye sis #LanaDelRayIsOverParty." One disappointed fan even went on to say, "Dear Lana, I was rooting for you, we were all rooting for you! How dare you?! #LanaDelRayisOverParty #LanaDelRey." Another posted, "Not miss thing scapegoating black women in the music industry because she feels threatened that they’re more successful than her rn. Karen shit."
One called her a "whitewashed privileged chick," and said, "Keep Nicki Minaj's name out of your mouth." However, some fans still stood in her support. "She said they don’t have to face the same criticism she did while singing about sexual/romantic things that aren’t mainstream. Read it all hun," one said. But another fan painted a shade of reality by saying, "Ariana got crucified for thank u, next even if she wasn’t dragging any of her exes, Nicki gets crucified for her sexual lyrics, Kehlani almost committed suicide when the media started painting her as the villain in one of her relationships. #LanaDelRayisOverParty."
While Lana may have had a point, was it necessary to drag the names of her fellow singers? Now that the deed is done, the consequences will follow and the fan troupe of all those singers won't leave without making a point.
