Lana Del Rey doesn't want Kanye West respond to 'The Greatest'
Lana Del Rey doesn't want Kanye West to respond to "The Greatest", in which she blasts his support of US President Donald Trump.
The 34-year-old singer/songwriter appears to hit out at Kanye - whose wedding to Kim Kardashian West she performed at in 2014 - and his support for US President Donald Trump on the track from her new album "Norman F**king Rowell".
Speaking about the lyric "Kanye West is blond and gone", Lana told the New York Times: "Here's the thing: I don't want to elicit a response. You never feel better for having written something like that. But Kanye just means so much to us. And by the way, I'm grateful to be in a country where everyone can have their own political views.
I'm really not more of a liberal than I am a Republican--I'm in the middle. But it was more like the mood and the vibe around, Yo, this man is the greatest! Really? The greatest? It hurt me. Did I have to say anything? No. But it's more just a line that represents a lot of things."
Lana also spoke about her love for Billie Eilish, and said pop-music has been waiting for a star like Billie to come along.
She explained: "I love Billie Eilish, and I feel like I've been waiting for this time in pop-music culture. I personally am very discerning. I can tell if a female pop singer, for instance, has a generosity of spirit or a playful fire in her heart. With Billie, she's prodigious. I needed to hear one line of one melody and I just know."
