Last year, Complex cover star Lana Del Rey made some controversial statements about feminism to Fader. She told the magazine in last year's summer music cover story that she was "just not really that interested" in feminism. "For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept. 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.'" The comments spurned many attacks on the songstress with her coming under fire for what was perceived as anti-feminist remarks.
In a new interview with collaborator and fanboy James Franco (who also co-wrote a book about the singer due out next year) for V Magazine, Lana revisits the comments she made explaining "The luxury we have as a younger generation is being able to figure out where we want to go from here, which is why I've said things like, 'I don’t focus on feminism, I focus on the future.'" She continued, "It’s not to say that there’s not more to do in that area. 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," before adding "I’m not undermining other issues. But I feel like that’s obvious,' she said, 'like I shouldn't even have to bring that up."
The singer went onto discuss her new album as well, saying that the album title Honeymoon "just felt right at the time." Speaking on her life in general, she concluded "I really try and keep my world beautiful but it’s tricky. We’re at a point in time when life truly can be what you want it to be."
