Lana wrote in part: “Question for culture: Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f******, cheating etc.
“Can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money - or whatever I want - without being crucified or saying that I'm glamorizing abuse?”
Explaining further, Lana said that she was fed up with people saying she is glamorising abuse when she is only singing about people’s realities.
The singer then reiterated that she is not a feminist but she feels that there should be a place in feminism for people like her who get their voices taken away from them by stronger women or men who hate women.
She also said that she had been honest about the challenging relationships she had and that it is the same with most women.

There were mixed reactions to Lana’s post. While many applauded her for being brave and speaking up, a few others advised her to delete the post saying that she does not have to bring other women down to make her point.
