  1. yeah but it comes across as white feminist ignorance, as a "moderate" white woman she should know better. She knew what she was doing. Literally half of the singers she listed haven't got a #1 lately or she described their #1 in a way that was totally inaccurate and just false. Ariana's last #1 is the SWU, Beyonce's is Perfect Duet, Cardi B's is I Like It, even Doja Cat isn't as crazy as she's trying to dumb it down to. like girl....

  2. I hate the fact that you non-black or non-POC stans are trying to defend her actions when it doesn’t even matter to you. The way she named mostly black women is very suspect to me especially as a black person. ”There has to be a place in feminism for women who look like me” ....so? what is she trying to say? white feminism matters only?

  3. The way black women had to fight for the right to sexual freedom, and still do til this day. Black women are constantly sexualized and demonized. But leave it to a white woman to make black female empowerment about herself. She gets rightfully clocked for her regressive lyrics that paint woman in horrible positions and glamorize them as if it’s something positive. Being a door mat is not cute or anything to brag about. She is honestly so disgusting

  4. she really should of sat there and ate her food what is her point anyway? just because those girls went #1 (nicki doesnt count), it doesnt mean they didnt receive their fair share of criticism dont be mad because you never appealed to the GP at the scale to snatch a #1. Also, women rappingg/singing about their sexuality is incredibly empowering in a sexist/homiphobic/racist etc world we live in...esp when its women of color. Singing about “he kissed me and it felt like a kiss” is not empowering

  5. I could write a book on how many times White Gays will be up and front and speak about black issues when all they dream about is being a white American Housewife with a man that satisfies their daddy issues.

  6. “Question for the Culture:”, says the white woman who doesn’t understand the culture to name Ariana and Camilla as part of the “culture” Sis highkey was targeting a certain demographic and it was just a MESS. She has said multiple times she’s “not a feminist” so why is she trying to get the appeal of feminists about ultraviolence, which DID glamourize abuse and problematic relationships??? Like She truly could have kept that first paragraph out and had an actual conversation about it, yet she wanted to ask.... The Culture why she got criticized???

  7. I think what people are calling her out for is stupid, but I also think it's stupid that she thought pop girls singing about regular sex is comparable to messages like "Come on, you know you like little girls" "I hear sirens, he hit me and it felt like a kiss, give me all of that ultra-violence" etc that she gets criticism for. I really don't know what to say!

  8. I mean, She didn't lie about certain points but there was no need to mention names. She should have kept it general.

  9. Most logical people understood the point of the post - but the name drops were completely unnecessary. It's high-key likely it was an unfortunate coincidence that majority of the artists she mentioned were of color (very much likely just mentioned recent names from the chart battles of the past 3 weeks). but Twitter and various are going to run with the racist sentiment. The conversation could've been easily discussed but the unfortunate name drops have people now in the thought that she's a racist - far from the truth. People who read the first paragraph only will run with that sentiment thou

Beyoncé was boycotted constantly and been dragged all through her career over her baby, pregnancy and more Ariana was scrutinized for her relationship with Mac Miller AND Pete Davidson constantly being called a whore and shit Kehlani almost killed herself over criticism over men Cardi B about being a stripper i can keep going Lana is not special in any form of way.. if she ants to write her abuse porn th

  22. I'm trying to get your point, and I think I do get what you're trying to say. But the way you worded it, it didn't come off right. You might live in a context of oppression, but that doesn't mean you know about what affects African Americans more than they do themselves. Sometimes it gets annoying seeing how many situations on Twitter end up being about race, but then again remember that social media is a platform where minorities can be the most vocal about anything concerning them in a society in which they're oppressed and you and I don't know what is relevant or not to them.

  23. I get that that's what you read but that's not what he said He didn't say "ever" first of all, he said that at any given moment (meaning right now in the current time), his nation is being more oppressed. I read it as "ever in the history of American blacks" too at first but then I re-read (because I OBVIOUSLY couldn't believe he meant that, he's not stupid y'know, he's actually extremely intelligent about political issues and social justice) and then I got it Interesting analogous case anyway lol. He didn't say it so let's move on. And let's also move on from Lana being supposedly raci

  24. For fuck sake dude, let me engage with this. So from the description you gave in an above post I am assuming you are a Palestinian (sorry if I'm wrong). Yes, Palestinians are subject to disgusting oppression and racial apartheid from their Israeli occupiers. This is a well-documented fact and no one would ever take that away from you. But if you knew anything at all about the history of blacks in America you would know that at the very least you should recognize the analogues between their experience and that of your people and show some solidarity. What you instead chose to do was p

  25. I see some people here saying that her lyrics are not empowering or that they are regressive or problematic but that's what she was calling out. People think that feminism means women always have to be strong, having the 'independent' 'bad bitch' persona when that's a fraction of what women experience in their lives. She's saying there's has to be a place in feminism for women who are vulnerable, who can't be strong all the time, who have suffered abuse and want to tell that story in their own way. I just think she's trying to say that it's her right to write about her own experiences wi

  33. the backlash on her post is already starting honestly i don't think there's going to be a big mess though because once you read through it it's clear what she means and that she's not demeaning the artists mentioned in any way but knowing twitter, reading probably wont happen 🤡

  34. there's basically a whole contingent of the music journalism industry that's sustained by defaming Lana's character so I'd expect no less! I think the optics of her calling out those specific artists are a little weird but they are literally THE most hyped and relevant right now so people are doing the most literally some stans have NO reading comprehension that it's scary, how did you even pass your 2nd grade reading assessments anyways, any press is good press and we're still being fed!

  39. what does this have to do with Little Monsters She's not even mentioned in the paragraph nor Is her base the one even the one attacking her on Instagram make it make sense. You clearly just keep adding to the point that fossils are obsessed with her. Nobody said Lana is WRONG for singing about abusive relationships. She's wrong for pitting feminism against feminism, especially with WOC. She's wrong for assuming that not only do those singers not sing about abusive relationships as well, but that because they perform sexually they can't be taken seriously. I actually screami

  40. i really dont have an issue with it, but i dont have an issue with girls singing about sex, cheating, etc either shes basically saying “these girls get number ones and receive no criticism when they sing about sex but i get criticized for glamorizinng abuse”... but you have glamorized abuse? and those girls DO get criticized despite having number ones. Cardi gets called stupid, a whore for being a stripper, etc so she shouldnt have brought them in to prove her point (which she doesn't even have because she HAS glamorized abuse, so the criticism she receives is fair).
