Lana Del Rey defends herself after Radio 1 interview taken out of context

Lana Del Rey recently gave an interview to BBC Radio 1 to promote her upcoming album ‘Chemtrails Over the Country Club’ and its lead single of the same name. During the interview, Lana shared some political beliefs as she and Annie Mac discussed the storming of the Capitol, Trump’s narcissism, and how sociopathy and narcissism are an epidemic of their own.

Some media outlets, such as Complex and Consequence of Sound, faced backlash from fans when they tweeted out headlines that took Lana’s quotes out of context and made it look like she defended Trump or wasn’t taking the situation seriously, when this wasn’t the case.

Lana eventually responded to this problem on both Twitter, with a string of tweets, and Instagram with a video.


Want to know what Lana actually said? Here are some useful quotes from the Radio 1 interview:

“I always thought something like this would happen much sooner. From a total, like… first of all, pandemic wise I always wondered how, with what 8 billion people in the world, this had not happened sooner. When they got rid of the contagious disease sector of the white house I was like ‘we’ll never make it.’ So that was one, because I’m like a bit of a fatalist, you know [laughs] I’m like scared. So I thought ‘well something’s definitely gonna happen there.’ And then, also, what I’m saying again about in terms of that wider picture of the government that you see on TV or whatever, you know, being a reflection of what’s going on in our homes. I was not surprised that the second epidemic that came out of the pandemic was household violence and general upset. It’s like 911 calls going up like 350% in every state.”

“You know, I think the madness of Trump, as bad as it was, it really needed to happen. I mean we really needed a reflection of our world’s greatest problem which is not climate change, it’s the problem of sociopathy and narcissism, especially in America. It’s going to kill the world. It’s not capitalism, it’s narcissism. And I wrote a very tiny but pretty book called ‘Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass’ an I had a little poem in there that’s called ‘My bedroom is a sacred place now there are children at the foot of my bed’ and it’s all about because I got a crazy person out of my bedroom. I was just surprised we didn’t have sort of a live-television psychopath crazy person as a president a long time ago because that’s what we see on TV, and that’s what we see on Instagram, and a lot of really self obsessed influencers etc. Not to say there’s not some really cute, great, happy-go-lucky influencers who have totally cheered up my life.”

“I once had an novelty call with George K. Simon who wrote a book called ‘A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing’ and it was all about people who didn’t know they hurt other people. Like Trump. He doesn’t know that he’s inciting a riot. I believe that.”
Annie said she thought it was “very very clearly obvious that [Trump] knew what he was doing the whole way,” but Lana explained that he has “delusions of grandeur” [a hallmark symptom of narcissistic personality disorder], which Annie understood. Lana continued, saying “I think this is actually the most important thing I’ll say in this interview: I think, for the people who stormed the Capitol, it’s disassociated rage. They want to wild out somewhere. We don’t know how to find a way to be wild in our world and at the same time our world is so wild.”
