Kanye West raised many eyebrows when he announce his support for President Donald Trump – even visiting the White House in a Make America Great Again Hat.

And among those celebrity friends annoyed at Yeezys Trump endorsement is Lana Del Rey.

The songstress, who performed at Kanye and Kim Kardashians wedding in 2014, is not a fan of the rappers political leanings, and called his endorsement of POTUS reckless.

Speaking to NME, Lana, who has just released her new album Norman F***ing Rockwell, said: His commentary felt so bold and reckless and self-assured, and it was talking about somebody – the President – who has engendered a lot of hatred within the culture.

I feel like theres a carelessness there to not see that theres been an increase of meanness [spread] around by certain supporters.

And speaking about the President, the 34-year-old said: People were p***ed before when I didnt say anything. We didnt have Trump as President before. There was less to say.



I grew up with Obama and we were happy in New York. We were really happy with everything. Thats what I think people miss. We had gotten to a point where we could focus on the music and the arts. It was great.

Lana namedrops Kanye – who used her song Young and Beautiful as the soundtrack to his proposal to Kim – on her song The Greatest, about the current climate, singing: Kanye West is blond and gone.

The Born To Die singer previously hit out at the 42-year-old rapper after he ended his Saturday Night Live appearance last year with an unscripted pro-Trump rant.

Lana commented on Instagram: Trump becoming our president was a loss for the country but your support of him is a loss for the culture.

I can only assume you relate to his personality on some level. Delusions of grandeur, extreme issues with narcissism – none of which would be a talking point if we werent speaking about the man leading our country.

If you think its alright to support someone who believes its OK to grab a woman by the p***y just because hes famous, then you need an intervention just as much as he does.
