Lana Del Rey and Kathy Griffin have beef. At least, that’s what the Fashion Police star told host Seth Myers after an appearance on his show.
During a Wednesday night appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, comedian Kathy Griffin said she had an awkward run-in with singer Lana Del Rey at a benefit, who was angered that Griffin added her to the “worst dressed list.” Griffin was busy chatting up House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) when she spotted Lana out of the corner of her eye to say hello.
“She’s like ‘Acchhhh, I don’t think so,'” Griffin recalled while putting her hand into the air to imitate Lana’s reaction. “So you go through the rolodex, like ‘Oh God, why are they mad at me this time?’ So then Nancy Pelosi goes, ‘Oh my, did you put her on the worst dressed list?’ And Lana Del Rey, who I don’t know, is like, ‘Uh huh. She did. Yeah. She did.'”
Griffin continued, much to the delight of the audience.
“So Nancy Pelosi, like she has done for decades, was basically mediating between myself and Lana Del Rey. Nancy Pelosi, of all people, is like, ‘Oh Lana dear, it’s just a show where they show pictures and make little jokes, dear. Don’t be upset.’ And Lana Del Rey is like, ‘Acchhh, I don’t think so.'”
So did Griffin and Del Rey eventually make up? Not exactly.
“So I kept saying ‘I hear you’ [because] you can’t say you’re sorry.”
And Griffin isn’t the only celebrity who’s got beef with Lana Del Rey. As reported by the Inquisitr, Lana was called out in Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth fame’s new memoir. According to Consequence of Sound, leaked excerpts from her memoir find Gordon ripping into Del Rey’s “feminism,” or lack thereof.
“Today we have someone like Lana Del Rey, who doesn’t even know what feminism is, who believes women can do whatever they want, which, in her world, tilts toward self-destruction, whether it’s sleeping with gross old men or getting gang raped by bikers. Equal pay and equal rights would be nice. Naturally, it’s just a persona.”
Gordon continues, getting intensely personal with her criticism.
“If she really truly believes it’s beautiful when young musicians go out on a hot flame of drugs and depression, why doesn’t she just off herself?”
Ultimately, Lana Del Rey has yet to officially respond to either Gordon or Griffin at this point. Maybe she’s too busy making new music to care.
