Lana Del Rey Confirmed?

Recommended Posts

She’s not chiding those singers for singing about what they sing about, not are those women ashamed, so why shouldn’t she name them?

It’s funny because she’s clearly named them all due to them all being big names and having huge singles recently, and most of them happen to be women of colour which should be celebrated, but instead due to her subject matter and wording it’s been painted as her pointing fingers.

Yeah, that's kind of what I meant. It was needless purely from the perspective of knowing what the internet is like, and the inevitable shit storm that would follow. This whole thing wouldn't have gotten half as much hate if she didn't name those names.

It also wouldn't have gotten half as much hate if some people had better reading comprehension 🤷‍♀️

Yup. But, why bother taking the time to read and comprehend something when you can save valuable time firing out a hot take as quickly as possible.

Malice or no, she is evidently over-sensitive about perceived slights. It's a lot of needless PR blowback, even if the post has been taken out of context and she isn't a racist (dating a cop is dodgy, mind, and it's strangely timed when four WOC hold the #1 and #2 slots in the US charts, but hey but let's gloss over that.)

She tore a veteran writer last year for having the gall to talk about her use of persona in her art – in an otherwise very positive review. She waltzed all the album of 2019 votes and people were lining up to call her this generation's Dylan, and that the nuance in her work is advancing feminism, not setting it back. I don't know why she thinks she's got it so hard, and this statement/album announcement didn't help. A pretty pointless quagmire to get yourself stuck in tbh.

I hope a new album September 5th means she will still be on the festival circuit.

Yeah, the album's set to age beautifully. Already on its way in that regard. Remember when Kanye being blonde and gone was the least of our troubles...

I’ve been listening to The Greatest a lot the past couple of months and welling up. Hamilton Leithauser even did a cover with outro adapted for current times but like the rest of it was already there man.

Aye. It was buried in the Twitter rant.

Has not rescheduled primavera 

Aye not looking good then as I can't imagine why she's reschedule some and not others, unless she has prior commitments elsewhere for the Primavera dates specifically. 

Surely she's gotta tour at some point mind, now with one album she's barely toured and another one on the way?

It could just be that she hasn't been confirmed /yet/. Still a lot more names to be announced for Primavera.

They’ve roped in quite a few headliner sized acts though. It looks like she’s been replaced already.

Yeah this. Looks to me like they've lost Lana and have replaced her with one of/both Tame Impala and Gorillaz. Doesn't look like there's any room at the top of the lineup for her now, unless she's still in talks and they're just planning on packing the top lines with huge acts.

There'll potentially be a few more big names coming to Primavera – Nine Inch Nails were meant to be playing, and might be one in the pipeline.

But yeah it looks like Lana might have packed it in for this album cycle (and Kacey, boo)

Ugh so we might end up losing Taylor, Kendrick AND Lana? Christ. So continues the dismantling of one of the greatest ever lineups.

Where's the news that we're losing Kendrick coming from? Grim if so, but is it just guesswork?

Someone with kosher info about European festivals says he’s not rescheduled.
