Lana Del Rey pre-emptively defends 'Chemtrails' album cover.


On Sunday, Lana Del Rey took to Instagram to unveil the artwork and tracklist for her new album ‘Chemtrails over the Country Club.’ 

The cover shows the singer sitting at a table with a group of women. No one batted an eyelid at it. If the cover received criticism for its lack of racial diversity, I was not aware. 

She fiercely defends it, and rants about having rapper friends and boyfriends. That's pretty much the equivalent of “I’m not racist, I have black friends,” and further highlighting she is still tone deaf. 
.
It should also be noted that a lot of white people don't have close black friends and vice versa. Honestly, no one cared about black women not being on her album cover.

Paranoia seems to have infiltrated Lana's mind because on multiple occasions she has been accused of being a lowkey racist. 
.
That is prior to previous drama in an Instagram post where she targeted several black women whom she claims "have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f*cking, and cheating." Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj were two of her biggest targets. As for the cover, this is one of those issues that never needed to be addressed. Lana will release her seventh studio album, ‘Chemtrails Over The Country Club,’ on Friday, March 19th.
