“Can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money – or whatever I want – without being crucified or saying that I’m glamorizing abuse?”
Lanas fans have responded to her tweets, begging her to delete them.
“I love you so much Lana but you don’t need to s*** on other women to make a point,”

“A good question. I mean … I had different relationships with men, with people, where they were sort of wrong relationships, but still beautiful to me.”
