Lana Del Rey shared a pointed post on Thursday, touching on criticism that her lyrics are "glamorizing abuse."
In the singer's lengthy message, she took aim at what she says is a double standard levied against female artists.
"Now that Doja Cat, Ariana [Grande], Camila [Cabello], Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f------, cheating etc," Del Rey wrote, "can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money -- or whatever I want -- without being crucified or saying that I'm glamorizing abuse?"
Del Rey continued, explaining that she is "fed up with female writers and alt singers saying that I glamorize abuse when in reality I'm just a glamorous person singing about the realities of what we are all now seeing are very prevalent emotionally abusive relationships all over the world."
"I think it's pathetic that my minor lyrical exploration detailing my sometimes submissive or passive roles in my relationships has often made people say I've set women back hundreds of years," she noted.
She also wrote that she wanted to make it clear that she is "not, not a feminist."
"There has to be a place in feminism for women who look and act like me -- the kind of woman who says no but men hear yes -- the kind of women who are slated mercilessly for being their authentic, delicate selves," she wrote.
Some social media users are now accusing Del Rey of calling out women of color in her post. None of the artists she named have responded yet.
In the message, she also revealed that her next album, the follow-up to 2019's Grammy-nominated "Norman F***ing Rockwell," will be released on Sept. 5.
