Do you think that a similar crucification is happening to Lana Del Ray? Because her music is often seen as frivolous and disingenuous by serious male critics. Have you seen the Needle drop's review of Ultraviolence?

I love messages from 2012

And no because Lana’s narrative as like the artifice indie star is over and now it’s just widely accepted that she’s the maestro / house mother of so much of pop music post her debut. Her narrative now is just that it’s known she’s just the cult star. But there was an element of sexism to the criticism “faked orgasm” etc
