Lana Del Rey on Harvey Weinstein: “I support the women who have come forward. I think they’re really brave for doing that.”

Lana Del Rey recently performed at Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles, where she was also interviewed by MTV News. She spoke to Gaby Wilson about her latest album; including the LA to the Moon tour, her collaborations and her newest music video ‘White Mustang.’

Gaby asked Lana if her song ‘Cola‘ had any reference to movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, as many in Hollywood are speaking up about the sexual assault and harassment he administered. In the song Lana sings “Harvey’s in the sky with diamonds, and it’s making me crazy.” However, other fans say they hear “ah he’s” instead of the name Harvey, especially as this is the lyric in the official lyric booklet.

In response, Lana said “When I wrote that song, I suppose I had a Harvey Weinstein/Harry Winston-type of character in mind. I envisioned, like, a benevolent, diamond-bestowing-upon-starlets visual, like a Citizen Kane or something. I’m not really sure. I thought it was funny at the time, and I obviously find it really sad now.”

With this in mind, Lana agreed to retire the song from her setlist, adding that it would be “the right thing to do.” She also stated: “I support the women who have come forward. I think they’re really brave for doing that.”
