Lana Del Rey’s “Ultraviolence”: Slammed For Supposedly Endorsing Domestic Violence

Publicada Jueves Junio 5, 2014 10:25 AM GMT

She’s gearing up for the release of her new album and Lana Del Rey just unleashed the title track “Ultraviolence” to mixed reviews.

The “Summertime Sadness” songstress deals with the topic of domestic abuse in her lyrics, though some critics have declared that it sounds like she condones the crime.

Lana sings, "I can hear sirens sirens, he hit me and it felt like a kiss. I can hear violins violins, give me all you've got, ultraviolence."

In a previous interview, fellow songbird Lorde shared concern with the way Ms. Del Rey plays fast and loose with dangerous emotions.

“I listened to that Lana Del Rey record and the whole time I was just thinking it’s so unhealthy for young girls to be listening to, you know, ‘I’m nothing without you.’ This sort of shirt-tugging, desperate, don’t leave me stuff. That’s not a good thing for young girls, even young people, to hear,” she noted.
