Lana Del Rey Faces Backlash For Israel Performance

Featured Posts

Yes To Heaven

Speculated for the last couple of days, now confirmed. 

Lana will be performing at a festival in Israel, sort of shattering her political ideas and things she has advocated for in the past. Many fans have taken to social media to voice their opinion.

and began to comment on her manager’s posts (check comments)

Artists in the past have also received backlash for even accepting to perform there, even after cancelling the event. I’m hoping she acknowledges this sooner than later.

Gaga performed in Russia when she obviously didn't support the government. Sometimes it's the fans that matter.

It's called BDS. Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions. I'm sure you are aware. 

It does worked. It played a major role in the fall of the Apartheid government is South Africa. It can play a major role in the fall of the Apartheid government in Israel. 
Disappointed in Lana. I expect better.

IF AN ARTIST PERFORMS IN ISRAEL, IT DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING POLITICAL! IT SAYS THEY CARE ABOUT THEIR FANS!

There’s so much going on here in America and I really don’t check for what’s happening outside.

I mean its a lot more then this but:

Israel and Palestine have been in conflict since forever now, the United $tates (via UnitedNations) has acknowlegded Israel as a country but pulled its veto (in the United Nations) against making Palestine a country. Israel have surpressed the people of Palestine and the only place where they can live somewhat safely is in GAZA. But GAZA isnt safe, is heavly garded by Israel both on land and on sea cause they want to "eradicate" their people. So everyone who goes to perform in Israel basically supports those acts (or at least thats what the people who give the backslash say)

So she shouldn’t perform in the US under Trump’s government too.

Most of her Israrli fans are against the extreme right facist government in Israel, like me.

if someone thinks the government cares if she cancels, they are wrong, they will just use it to show that “everyone hates Israel and is antisemitic”

I'm not serious 99% of the times ;)

She is there for the fans, not because she supports the governments.

If artists shouldn't visit countries "where the government is horrible and literally murdering people", they shouldn't tour the US too. Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, etc.

Israel AND Egypt.

Gaza is f-ucked up by Israel, Egypt and Hamas.. and Iran is funding Hamas so they can keep the conflict alive.. it’s for everyone’s favor to keep Gaza the way it is for political and power reasons..

Someone else would have complained if she DIDN'T book in Israel. There's no winning lmao it's pathetic the scrutiny that people who have NOTHING to do with it are expected to make statements. It would be different if the artist were from Palestine or had SOME sort of affiliation with Palestine but she's literally just a rich white woman from the states. Give it a break.

So Israel people will never be allowed to go to a concert because social media advocates think a Lana Del Rey concert can change political stuff that's going on for centuries now (?) :saladga:
