Lana Del Rey Weighs In On Shady Kanye West Lyrics

Lana Del Rey is NOT trying to start beef with Kanye West, but she just felt it was important to comment on Ye’s absurdity!

Read on to see what Lana Del Rey had to say about Kanye West…

The Grammy nominee Lana Del Rey recently sat down with The New York Times to speak on the inspiration behind her sixth album Norman ‘F–king Rockwell,’ has learned.

Lana Del Rey was asked about a certain line in her single “The Greatest” referencing Yeezy’s support of Donald Trump.

She responded by saying that it wasn’t about shading the rapper, well sort of not shading Kanye.

Del Ray explains:

If this is it, I’m signing off / Miss doing nothin’ the most of all / Hawaii just missed that fireball / LA is in flames‚ it’s getting hot / Kanye West is blonde and gone / ‘Life on Mars’ ain’t just a song / Oh, the livestream’s almost on.

She admits, “blonde and gone” is a clear nod to the rapper’s 2017 blonde phase, which came around the time he unapologetically endorsed Trump before promoting his philosophical theories on slavery being a choice.

Lana Del Ray told the Times she hasn’t received any sort of reaction to the line — and she hopes it stays that way:

Here’s the thing: I don’t want to elicit a response. You never feel better for having written something like that. But Kanye just means so much to us. And by the way, I’m grateful to be in a country where everyone can have their own political views. I’m really not more of a liberal than I am a Republican—I’m in the middle.

She adds:

But it was more like the mood and the vibe around, Yo, this man is the greatest! Really? The greatest? It hurt me. Did I have to say anything? No. But it’s more just a line that represents a lot of things.
