Kim: Lana Doesn’t Understand Feminism

Kim Gordon has criticized Lana Del Rey (pictured), claiming that the “Video Games” singer “doesn’t even know what feminism is.” Writing in her new memoir, “Girl in a Band,” the Sonic Youth founder says: “Today we have someone like Lana Del Rey … who believes women can do whatever they want, which, in her world, tilts toward self-destruction, whether it’s sleeping with gross old men or getting gang raped by bikers. Equal pay and equal rights would be nice.” Last year Del Rey told Fader magazine that feminism was “just not an interesting concept.” Gordon also criticized Del Rey’s romanticizing of dying young, in what may have been a reference to an interview the “Ultraviolence” star gave in 2014, in which she said “I wish I was dead already … I don’t want to have to keep doing this.” Gordon wrote: “If she really truly believes it’s beautiful when young musicians go out on a hot flame of drugs and depression, why doesn’t she just off herself?”
