The release of Lana's new album Ultraviolence is right around the corner; as such, we're learning a lot more about the songs that will be on the record. I was personally looking most forward to "Fucked My Way to the Top", because its iconic title is enough to assume that it would be a fantastic jam.
Well, as it just so happens, Lana recently opened up about the song's meaning. It's about a basic bitch, and that basic bitch just might be none other than former Cunt of the Week Lorde:
It’s about a singer who first sneered about my allegedly un-authentic style, but later stole and copied it, and now she’s acting like I am the art project and she’s the true super artist. My God, and people actually believe her. She’s successful! I shouldn’t continue ranting – it doesn’t get anywhere.No, rant more! We love it.
For those of you who don't know, Lorde dismissed Lana as being superficial and unrelatable because she sings about opulent lifestyles. Well, here's the thing, sweetie. Singing about not having an opulent lifestyle is just as shallow. And what's worse, Lorde's style is very distinctly Lana-inspired. So it doesn't take a genius to connect the dots.
This is the second time Lana has proven herself a warrior leading the fight against cunts; a song in which she disses Lady Gaga leaked onto the internet last summer.
Slay 'em basic bitches, Lana!
