Lana Del Rey Not Interested in Feminism, Would Rather Discuss Space

Illustration for article titled Lana Del Rey Not Interested in Feminism, Would Rather Discuss Space

Famous wedding singer Lana Del Rey has a thought or two about feminism. Mostly, she's fucking bored by it.


Via Fader:

"For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept. . . Whenever people bring up feminism, I'm like, god. I'm just not really that interested....I'm more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what's going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities."

[...]"My idea of a true feminist is a woman who feels free enough to do whatever she wants."

Add another famous woman to list. Sigh. Yes, everyone. Stop boring Lana Del Rey with your struggle for basic equal rights. She's trying to think about living on Mars or something.

Gender equality just isn't everyone's passion, and y'all are gonna have to learn to make your peace with that instead of picking on people for it. It's fine, really! I bet many of you are just bored to tears by environmental activism, or by trying to find a cure for cancer, or economic justice, or whatever other causes we're all supposed to support are out there.* People have different passions in life, and the key isn't to try to make every single person out there super passionate about your thing, it's to get the people who are passionate about it to do the best jobs they can. People who aren't passionate about it just creates a too many cooks in the kitchen issue.

Besides, she goes on to talk about "SpaceX and Tesla, what's going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities", which is confusing but I'm going to take that to mean she's a giant nerd who wishes she could be a crewmember on the USS Enterprise. So she's a female celeb who's talking about how cool science and space exploration and learning about different species is. How is this a bad thing? Or is it just that girls aren't supposed to like science before they've embraced the feminist label? I think she sounds hilarious and delightful and I'd share a bottle of wine with her.

*And, you know, maybe a bunch of super privileged straight white ladies who think growing out all the body hair is more empowering than affordable housing do not have a leg to stand on in judging other people for not being passionate about causes we are all supposed to support. People who live in glass houses, and all that.
