She posted this in response to a post by Instagram user @lanasluck discussing the “black narcissist” line -
45957146624_7bca4c2be1_b.jpg
45957146604_78743582cf_z.jpg

 

 

 

I don't have any songs about race of any kind.

Maybe that's a problem?
 
Also, really? It's not central, but it's not like her catalog is absent of lyrics suggestive of race or ethnicity. And you could write a whole dissertation or longform thinkpiece on race in her music video catalog. (Has anyone? I'd be fascinated to read one.)

 

This song is deeply personal and introspective having nothing to do with anyone outside of my immediate circle of people i know personally.

This comes uncomfortably close to sounding like "I don't know enough POC to have any songs about them."

 

This is why I have absolutely nothing to do with the majority of the culture.

Again, that's the problem.
 
Also, LOL at trying to have it both ways, decreeing Kanye West's MAGA-hat-wearing ways "a loss for the culture" (I don't disagree) while simultaneously trying to distance herself from "the culture" and sidestep cultural critiques when it suits her.

 

Speaking of her tweets about Kanye, I'm reminded she specifically mentioned his "narcissism". Lana, whether it's about Kanye or Azealia or not, OF COURSE people are going to think a line like "black narcissist" might be a reference to them after you publicly feuded with them using similar language. Even if wrong, it's a reasonable inference. Poor form to chastise your fans and others for making it. C'mon, Lana, if Azealia dropped a track using a label she'd called you on Twitter and even threw "white" in front of it you know you'd think it was about you.
 

 

Lana, use a publicist for any statements on sensitive subjects.

I swear some of y’all want the line to be racist sooooo badly.... I’m over this topic
We all know what the line means, and any doubt anyone has can be dispelled because y’all forced the poor woman to explain herself... and it still ain’t enough?

I think she was just trying to clarify that it isn't about Azealia/Kanye because she isn't close to them but yeah this whole thing could've been worded better

She just doesn’t see her privilege in these situations...which is hard for many people to see.

However, yeah the cultural part just seemed very toxic and passive aggressive . “THIS is why I’m not a part of the cultural.” You mean general criticism?

Also how can she get mad when people insinuate if she’s not gonna explain? And yes I know she said in the past she doesn’t like to comment on the music, she wants it to speak for itself, which is perfectly fine. BUT fans will always insinuate and try to piece it together. If you don’t like it , then explain yourself!

All your criticisms, I completely agree with. I’ll also add and this is toward the people who say fans are “reaching”: it’s okay to criticize an artist you love, and still enjoy their music. We’re not saying she’s racist. I think HIADT is a fantastic song, but I also agree that the wording could’ve been better and her ignorance is a bit telling in her response. I’m still annoyed by the events yesterday because of how she handled the release and her response to it when her lack of information didn’t help at all and contributed to the controversy. All it takes is 5 seconds to make a post to announce a song is coming up, that’s it. It takes little to explain that’s its personal and has nothing to do with any drama you had with anyone recently. That’s all.

Exactly! People in here are acting like were saying she's a racist, when were actually saying her explanation could have been worded better, that's all.

i'm lost, why does she have to have a song about POC???????????? is that a requirement these days??

She explained herself, but not well enough imo. I'm not impyling she's saying anything racist with her explanation, just that she could have made some adjustments to it.

fair, but i guess for someone her status and because she probably didnt think twice about the line because she knew what it was about, she was probably frustrated with her response and wanted to just state what she felt

 

everyone is just under a microscope these days

A requirement? lol People rn, me included, just think it could’ve been handled in a better way. Like even before she released it, it was messy. And personally, I get why people had a problem with that lyric. It’s a long tiring explanation that I don’t want to get into, bc it’ll get twisted on here. And I think most of the people saying she’s racist were on Twitter. Not here. We get she was referring to depression, people were just saying she could’ve worded it better.

*your skin so golden brown echos into the background*


American is the first song that came in my head when Lana said she didn’t have a song about race of any kind lol
