Lana Del Rey commented on a photo Kanye West shared to his Instagram of him wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, which shows his support of President Donald Trump.
West said “this represents good and America becoming whole again. We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendement. Message sent with love.”
In retaliation, Lana said:
“Trump becoming our president was a loss for the country but your support of him is a loss for the culture.
I can only assume you relate to his personality on some level. Delusions of grandeur, extreme issues with narcissism – none of which would be a talking point if we weren’t speaking about the man leading our country.
If you think it’s alright to support someone who believes it’s OK to grab a woman by the pussy just because he’s famous – then you need an intervention as much as he does – something so many narcissists will never get because there just isn’t enough help for the issue.
Message sent with concern that will never be addressed.”

Lana Del Rey spoke to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio today about her newest single ‘Venice Bitch’. The track, which clocks in at almost 10 minutes, was released today with an accompanied home-shot music video.
Lana also announced the title for her upcoming album which is ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’. She said that has been the title since March and right now there are 11 songs for it.
Lana added that she is thinking about putting another song out in October, but she is unsure if this will fully make sense because the track is a serious and thoughtful standalone song.
On the poetry book she’d like to release soon, Lana revealed it’s current title is ‘Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass’, which is a line from one of her favourites, and it should feature around 30 poems.
