Lana Del Rey: Feminism Isn’t Interesting

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Features,

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.

LordeLorde claims she's working on a new album which is "totally different" than her debut record.

The 17-year-old singer, who achieved global success with her album Pure Heroine, feels she has grown as an artist and writer in the past year and thinks her new material is more mature.

"I think I've learned so much as a songwriter, there's going to be so much of an improvement because of that. I'm working on stuff quite tentatively, it's definitely still at the beginning and yeah, it's totally different," she said.

The star claims she wrote her debut album about her life in New Zealand before she became famous and people who have always been close to her, whereas her new material looks at a time after she found success and how she is now part of the showbiz world: "I wrote the last album about that world which was the suburb where I grew up and populated by my friends and people who were really familiar to me. Now I'm in a different place every day and I'm with new people every day and it's a different vibe."

Despite being busy with her new fashion venture, the 43-year-old actress has also been juggling her family life, and admits her marriage with Ben Falcone couldn't be better: "We have a great marriage."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues, Meltdowns, Features,

Justin Bieber and UsherUsher believes that Justin Bieber needs to "manage" his own life now that he's an adult.

The rapper has mentored the pop heartthrob since his career took off at the age of just 13, seven years ago, but he hasn't tried to stage an intervention following Justin's recent run-ins with the law and bad publicity as he insists the youngster needs to learn from his own mistakes.

"I gave every bit of advice and always told him it was up to him if he really wanted this. Now that he has it, as an adult, it's his to manage. Do I turn my head in shame based off of what I see, what I know? Nah, I don't because it's all part of life's process. Am I in it with him? Yeah," Usher said in Nylon.

Usher, 35, was mentored by Diddy from the age of 15, so he understands why it's important to have someone else in the industry looking out for you. "Artistic development made me who I am. Somebody took the time to help me find what it is that works for me as an entertainer and who I am as a music maker," he explained.
