Kim Gordon (formerly of Sonic Youth
) has a memoir called Girl in a Band
out Februrary 24th, and a new excerpt has been shared in which Gordon claims Lana Del Rey
"doesnít even know what feminism is" among other harsh words:
"Today we have someone like Lana Del Rey, who doesnít even know what feminism is, who believes women can do whatever they want, which, in her world, tilts toward self-destruction, whether itís sleeping with gross old men or getting gang raped by bikers. Equal pay and equal rights would be nice. Naturally, itís just a persona. If she really truly believes itís beautiful when young musicians go out on a hot flame of drugs and depression, why doesnít she just off herself?"
