2023 seems to be the year of celebrities getting canceled. In these eight months, countless celebrities have been canceled by the media on grounds of infidelity, criticism, and a lot more. The last month saw some of H-town’s significant ladies getting canceled. And fans believe it all has to do with Lana Del Rey.
The list contains all the A-list artists in the industry, including Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, and Ariana Grande. Here’s what the Lana Prophecy is and how it’s taking place.
What Is Lana’s Prophecy?
In the year 2020, Lana Del Rey got a lot of attention for her now-deleted Instagram post titled “Question for the Culture,” in which she defended her music in response to those who said that her lyrics “glamorize abuse.” Lana called out seven female singers in the opening line of the post for having hit singles that, in her opinion, were about ‘being sexy, wearing no clothes and cheating’. Doja Cat, Ariana Grande, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Kehlani, Nicki Minaj, and Beyoncé were mentioned on the list.
The post read, “I’m fed up with female writers and alt singers saying that I glamorize abuse when in reality I’m just a glamorous person,”
She continued, “Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani, and Nicki Minaj and Beyonce have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, fucking, cheating etc. — 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??????”
However, there was significant criticism of the article since some people thought Lana was favoring misogynistic views and discriminating against women of color. People also called her out, saying she didn’t have to call out other artists just to prove her point.
But the shocking thing is this: three years later, as of now, all the women Lana mentioned in her song, have slowly started getting canceled, in the exact same order Lana mentioned them.
