Lana Del Rey Explains Prior ‘Anti-Feminist’ Remarks to James Franco for ‘V Magazine’
In an interview for V Magazine between fanboy Franco and Del Rey, the “Honeymoon” singer clarified comments from a Fader cover story in 2014 that were deemed “anti-feminist”. “The issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept,” she originally stated in her Fader interview. “I’m more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what’s going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities.”
“Whenever people bring up feminism, I’m like, god. I’m just not really that interested.”
Del Rey explains to the actor that her comment was, instead, a reference to her generation’s possibilities in scientific exploration. “It’s not to say that there’s not more to do in that area,” she states. “I’ve gotten to witness through history the evolution of so many movements and now I’m standing at the forefront of new technological movements.”
On the title of her new album “Honeymoon” that drops on Sept. 18, Del Rey tells Franco, “It’s the word that sums up the ultimate dream. I mean, life is a honeymoon. Life, love, paradise, freedoms…that’s forever.”
Franco’s 100-page Lana Del Rey fan fiction, “Flip-Side: Real and Imaginary Conversations With Lana Del Rey” will be released on March 15, 2016.
