Is Lana Del Rey a feminist in her music and lyrics? Not really, but maybe?
Here is what LDR said: "For me, a true feminist is someone who is a woman who does exactly what she wants. If my choice is to, I don't know, be with a lot of men, or if I enjoy a really physical relationship, I don't think that's necessarily being anti-feminist. For me, the argument of feminism never really should have come into the picture. Because I don't know too much about the history of feminism, and so I'm not really a relevant person to bring into the conversation. Everything I was writing was so autobiographical, it could really only be a personal analysis."
So that's her view of feminism vs. personal analysis. We love when LDR gets all brainy and talks higher brow topics, like this. We like her viewpoint. She basically says she is not super well-versed so it does not apply.
What's your take?
