Okay but why hasn’t someone made a dickjoke about this
I do not think Lana Del Rey has ever actually read Lolita.
Her lolita references disturb me on several levels: as a woman. Who used to be a young girl. As someone who isn’t really that into paedophilia. As someone opposed to rape. As a feminist. As a consumer. As a literature student.
Such pretty music, I really wish it didn’t make my skin crawl.
Manslation: I have absolutely no understanding of anything in the entire world.
In recent news I tried to be friends with my ex. He got into a fight with me because I told him not to tell depressed people to “just cheer up”.
I don’t care what ideology you claim to prescribe to. If you shame or judge housewives and stay at homes moms, you’re a misogynist.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Lolita basically about an old stepfather taking advantage of a 12 year old girl? Why is this a thing people romanticize? It’s disgusting.
My darling tumble user. Oh my god. Be my best friend. Finally someone understands. Can you and I track down Lana del rey and explain this to her. Can we convince her talking about being her ” old man’s scarlet harlot ” is not cool. Can we explain that quoting the opening lines of Lolita does not make for good lyrics for a sexy catchy pop song. Can we establish to the world statutory, incest and child abuse is not glamorous. Can we remember Nabokov and HUMBERT HUMBERT HIMSELF admits to the abusive nature of the relationship?
Finally can we agree that the one thing more disturbing than the novel about paedophilia, kidnapping, psychological and sexual child abuse is people’s treating it like a love story.
It’s my birthday. 21. Feel free to send me nice messages.
