lana del ray sings blue velvet. best thing ever.
Ladies and gentlemen, the face of blatant white ignorance. White process looking ~pretty~ is more important than natives asking you not to disrespect our sacred symbols.

Okay. No. This is the second big-name musician in less than a month to abuse a war bonnet.
Every single time it happens it’s all that pops up in #Native American for like a week and I’m sick of it.
Here’s why it’s wrong that she wore it:
- But Why Can’t I Wear a Hipster Headdress?
- My Identity Is Not A Costume for You To Wear!
- On why prancing around in a headdress and war paint isn’t ~appreciating~ “native culture”
- An Open Letter to Non-Natives in Headdresses
- Redface!- The History of Racist American Indian Stereotypes
When you make these posts you are complicit in encouraging this behaviour.
Just reminding everybody that this is not okay
Lawl, you’re all fucking ridiculous.
It’s ridiculous because you don’t know how it feels to have your culture taken, turned into an outfit, a shitshow or an annual ‘holiday’ like so many people do. Shut up.
**even if you do, why would you think it’s funny that someone else is hurt or offended by shit like this?!
oh my god, wine some fucking more. Posts like these are the most annoying to see on my dash
On one hand, I feel like it might be nice to be as ignorant as you. But I value intelligence more than being a blind fucking idiot to racism
GO DIE IN A FUCKING FIRE, NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOUR FUCKING FEELINGS, ya’ll not even natives so please just shut the fuck up.
but she looks pretty in it so who gives a fuck
Also, why has everybody started saying that it’s not natives who are upset about this kind of thing? Because… it is. This entire conversation was started by a native. This shit hurts us. Maybe sit down and read a few of the links above? Try giving a fuck about people other than white celebrities for a change.
i know some folks like her for her camp factor and other stuff but this is pretty gross. that whole “i’m living in 1952 and i’m a weird housewife/sex symbol” thing only goes so far.
Oh Lana I am so sad.
Someone posted a Supernatural reference in the Jane Eyre tag and then someone else posted a Lana Del Rey reference plus someone wrote that after reading the novel she was “balling” her eyes out and basically my life is complete.*
*Not mocking the error, it is just a beautiful image, balling one’s eyes.
Patrick Wolf covers Lana Del Rey’s “Born To Die”.
The only time I put any consideration into coordinating my bra and underwear, or into the level of sexiness thereof, is when I am performing a very serious and elaborate Lana Del Rey interpretive dance for myself in my own bedroom. And then I immediately put on a giant T-shirt and spend the rest of the day laying on the floor watching Netflix and drinking gas station iced coffees.
LDR fans forever.
