VIDEO REVIEW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvhc1cLeiR8

An exhausting celebration of white supremacy

If Lana Del Rey wasn't a famous musician, she'd be in your Facebook inbox trying to sell you essential oils and sharing racist dogwhistle memes on her timeline. This album is just the latest reflection of that.

It's no secret Lana Del Rey has a racism issue. From her tirade against black artists making better music than her, to her "I'm not racist because I'm friends with rappers" comment, to her former cop boyfriend, Lana always finds a way to sneak a little white supremacy into her shtick and rub it in on Instagram for extra controversy points.

Her latest musical endeavor, Chemtrails Over the Country Club, screams "white supremacy" at the top of its lungs just as loudly as her previous scandals. If there is one core concept that ties this album together, it is that we should celebrate our boring, white, privileged American culture shielded away from the destructive consequences of our racist capitalist system. I can't think of a better analogy than a fucking 1950's country club to express these ideas, but somehow Lana nails it.

This album is packed with references to whiteness, to ignorance, and frankly to the trashiest aspects of American culture. Like a neckbeard tipping a fedora at his favorite Funko Pop, Lana Del Rey gives a nod to conservative conspiracy theories, astrology worship, evangelical Christianity seated in deep red USA, white picket fences, and so, so, so many other symbols of complacent white American culture it is nauseating.

OH, did I mention this album is boring as fuck? Yeah, it sucks musically too.

this is obviously a very biased review, you can separate the artists actions and their music but this is just blatant hate. no obviously agrees with what she has said in the past but we can still be honest and rightfully criticize her

honestly i don't think lana is fully clean but this is a stretch. this album is nowhere near a celebration of white supremacy, and i don't understand a lot of the links (astrology? white supremacy? huh? alright.) i mean i can understand the worries, plus the lead single is literally about having privilege, but this is not at all a white supremacist album. this review almost makes it seem like it's a crime to mention white culture too, which is too far. yeah, it's boring, but it's not racist!! idk if i'd say the same about lana the person but cotcc is like 99% clean

Never got that sense once. Even if your argument was strong it still doesn’t warrant a 1

very biased
Mar 18, 2021
truthfully though. whenever people make statements like "I'm definitively not racist" you gotta cringe a bit... its like when people "apologize" that they "offend someone", but not actually feel remorse for the stupid shit they said or did.
Mar 18, 2021
thats true

Written by a white guy. Performative wokeness from someone who has never experienced racial injustice or discrimination. You have no perspective other than "this seems wrong to me and I should say something loudly about it because people will listen".
Mar 19, 2021
Aren't you white tho? It's always white people doing the most...
Mar 19, 2021
I do believe she had some racist behavior throughout her career but this is extreme.

@halbery his videos are trolling lmao, there's a few semi serious ones on occasion for small artists but aside from that it's pretty much all a joke
Mar 19, 2021
@Charlise thank god, there was a small part of me that was worried "The International Women's Day Song" might have been real

White heat is a saying. When temperature reaches a certain degree, it no longer appears blue or orange, rather white, which is an extreme heat. Originally I thought she was saying "white claw forever" lmao.

Hey babe revolution now

lana is a bad person but can you give an example of how the album itself is racist?

Lana has always referenced American culture in her music, and that includes all white sh*t. Even the no. 1 album of 2019, Norman fucking Rockwell, is a tongue-in-cheek charicature of Americana. This one's title even delves deeper into whatever crazy sh*t Americans are about. So, of course, in this ranchy, country-inspired album it's gonna have what many white conservative americans are into, including crazy ones. She has always had a tint of irony in her persona and lyricism. And all you read from that complexity is a surface-level interpretation, if that's an interpretation at all. What a woke critique! Seriously, how are you even literate? You obviously do not understand Lana as an artist, or even reading any art at all from that matter. It's a shame that you have to donate some of your earnings from your white privilege in this site to get that check mark to make your pseudo-woke, troll review seem legit when you could have spent that on funding woke campaigns or your revolution.
