Lana Del Rey Won’t Be Performing With American Flags Because Trump Is President
Another example of these ungrateful entertainers. Maybe she should go to Russia and see how she is treated or maybe Iraq or Iran? These people are brain dead.
They live in their sheltered little rainbow world. Why do we/you support them? Stop buying the music or art from these people, stop supporting them by going to their concerts.
YOU are feeding this hateful / hurtful beast know as hollywood!
Singer Lana Del Rey will no longer incorporate the iconography of the red, white, and blue into her performances. The reason: because Donald Trump is president.
In an interview with Pitchfork, Del Rey explained that it is “uncomfortable” to be romantic about America when Trump is in the White House:
“It’s certainly uncomfortable. I definitely changed my visuals on my tour videos. I’m not going to have the American flag waving while I’m singing “Born to Die.” It’s not going to happen. I’d rather have static. It’s a transitional period, and I’m super aware of that. I think it would be inappropriate to be in France with an American flag. It would feel weird to me now—it didn’t feel weird in 2013.”
Del Rey further stated that she and her co-workers were concerned about what was happening in both the United States and the world as the 2016 election was occurring. “I was posing a real question to myself: Could this be the end of an era? The fall of Rome?” she said.
She also stated things were better under President Obama’s administration because, according to her, “…at least everyone I knew felt safe. It was a good time. We were on the up-and-up.”
If you dont feel safe when you see the American Flag, PLEASE seek some serious mental health.
