Lana Del Rey: Feminism Isn’t Interesting

Lana Del ReyLana Del Rey thinks that feminism "isn't interesting."

The "West Coast" singer, who is set to release her new album Ultraviolence this month, insists that she doesn't find feminism "an interesting concept," and admits she is often bored when people talk to her about it.

"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," she said.

However, the star went on to explain that her idea of a true feminist is a woman who "feels free enough to do whatever she wants."

Meanwhile, the star, who debuted the title track from her new album yesterday on YouTube, also spoke about video footage taken by a fan of her crying on stage last year during a gig in Dublin, Ireland. "I'd been sick on tour for about two years with this medical anomaly that doctors couldn't figure out. That's a big part of my life: I just feel really sick a lot of the time and can't figure out why. I'd gotten these shots in Russia, where we'd just been. It was just heavy. It's just heavy performing for people who really care about you, and you don't really care that much about yourself sometimes," she explained.

Lana Del Rey with her fiance Barrie-James O'NeillPerhaps Lana Del Rey will be singing less somber songs about summer now.

The "Summertime Sadness" singer became engaged to Kassidy musician Barrie-James O'Neill several months ago, several sources confirmed recently.

Engagement rumors began swirling when the pair were spotted house hunting together in July last year, with Lana wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring. The two were believed to have begun dating back in 2011.

Although Lana has been pretty mum about her relationship with the Scottish guitarist, she did seem to reflect upon their relationship (not naming any names, of course) while discussing her track "Off to the Races" last year in January: "When I found somebody who I fell in love with, it made me feel different than I felt the rest of the day. It was electrifying. That's what inspired the 'Off to the Races' melodies. That's one of the times when you're feeling electrified by someone else and they make you happy to be alive."

Kanye West and Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Ray refused to perform at Kanye West's surprise proposal to Kim Kardashian. The 36-year-old rapper popped the question to the reality TV star at AT&T Park in San Francisco on her 33rd birthday on October 21, and was forced to pay an orchestra $50,000 to play Lana's hit "Young & Beautiful" after the 27-year-old singer "politely declined" his request to sing the track, which is one of Kim's favorites, live.

"[Kanye] asked Lana to perform for Kim at surprise marriage proposal in San Francisco. Lana politely declined, and didn't give any reason for not being able to perform. It was a very firm no from Lana and her camp. Kanye did try to push it, but didn't get anywhere. Kanye decided to hire an orchestra to perform the song for Kim, and he was much happier with how it turned out," a source said. "Kim was bummed that Lana didn't perform for the big event, but she is still a huge fan. She just loved that Kanye tried to make it happen. Kim is jokingly saying Lana will want to perform at their wedding," the insider added.
