Singer and songwriter Lana Del Rey hit Instagram on Wednesday night, in part, to tease her upcoming album.
But the promotion turned into a rant aimed at critics who say her music "glamorizes abuse."
The "Summertime Sadness" artist compared her music to that of other women in the music industry, including Beyoncé, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj and Doja Cat.

“Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f**king, cheating, etc – 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?"

The 34-year-old then wrote that she's just speaking her truth and doesn't understand why it's been viewed as the glorification of abuse, as a 2014 Time article suggested
"I'm fed up with female writers and alt singer 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," she added. 
According to Del Rey, her career has "paved the way" for other women to own their agency in music and say what they please. 

"But I also feel it really paved the way for other women to stop 'putting on a happy face' and to just be able to say whatever the hell they wanted to in their music — unlike my experience where if I even expressed a note of sadness in my first two records I was deemed literally hysterical as though it was literally the 1920s," she wrote. 
Twitter wasn't having any of what Del Rey was serving — with the general sentiment being that she was blatantly ignoring the hate the aforementioned women have received and are receiving for their work. 

Many are also upset with Del Rey taking issue with critics when she has admitted that she has struggled with expressing her thoughts effectively on abuse. 

In 2017, she told Pitchfork that she doesn't sing the line "he hit me and it felt like a kiss" from the track "Ultraviolence" anymore. 

"Having someone be aggressive in a relationship was the only relationship I knew. I'm not going to say that that [lyric] was 100% true, but I do feel comfortable saying what I was used to was a difficult, tumultuous relationship, and it wasn't because of me. It didn't come from my end."

None of the women Del Rey mentioned in her post have responded to the singer's comments. 

According to Refinery29, the post initially served to promote her album's release date of September 5.

Well, that was a fail.
