The 34-year-old acknowledges that she might’ve “given more context” to her submit, however solely regarding the title of her future ebook of poetry. 

She then offers a glib apology to the folks she offended, who she says she assumes are “super trump/pence supporters or hyper liberals or flip flopping headline grabbing critics [who] can’t read and want to make it a race war.” She clarifies that her concern was really with “female critics and female alternative artists who are dissociated from their own fragility and sexuality and berate more sexually liberated artists,” like herself and the opposite ladies she name-dropped yesterday.

Lana then claims that by mentioning she largely named ladies of coloration, these critics are revealing their true colours. “You want the drama, you don’t want to believe that a woman could be beautiful, strong and fragile at the same time… Nothing new here in your reaction. Same as ten years ago when a million think pieces came out about me feigning emotional fragility or lying out coming from no money when that was the truth,” she says. 

She concludes her message by saying: “If the women I mention don’t want to be associated with me that’s absolutely fine by me.”

As of Friday, not one of the ladies she referred to as out in her submit have spoken out and even cryptically referenced her assertion.
