Lana Del Rey Is More Interested in Space Travel Than Feminism

Lana Del Rey tells Fader she doesn’t care much about feminism. To her it’s a boring subject. Can we talk about space travel instead?

“For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept,” she says. “I’m more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what’s going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities. Whenever people bring up feminism, I’m like, god. I’m just not really that interested.” Fortunately, her ambivalence about politics doesn’t undo any subversiveness that may be embedded in her work (though, nor does it excuse any ill it may cause). When pressed, she adds, more illuminatingly, “My idea of a true feminist is a woman who feels free enough to do whatever she wants.”

It’s like when someone tries to talk to me about Obamacare. Ugghhh, can’t we talk about Kim Kardashian’s ass instead?
