Lana Del Rey tells MTV News that she will no longer perform her song "Cola" at future shows in light of the multiple sexual assault stories involving Harvey Weinstein. At the 12:18 mark of the interview, Del Rey admits that the track which includes a line mentioning a person named Harvey ("Harvey's in the sky with diamonds") was partly inspired by the disgraced Hollywood mogul.
"When I wrote that song, I suppose I had a Harvey Weinstein/Harry Winston-type of character in mind," Del Rey told MTV. "I envisioned, like, a benevolent, diamond-bestowing-upon-starlets visual, like a Citizen Kane or something. I'm not really sure. I thought it was funny at the time, and I obviously find it really sad now. I support the women who have come forward. I think they're really brave for doing that."
Del Rey says she doesn't feel "comfortable" performing the song anymore. "Obviously I don't feel comfortable with it now," she said. "I thought of that right away." When asked about "retiring" the song, Lana responded, "Definitely. That would be the only right thing to do."
