Earlier in the year, James Franco wrote a poetic tribute to Lana Del Rey for V Magazine called ‘Shades Of Cool’. He has also reportedly completed a 100 – page book called ‘Flip Side: Real And Imaginary Conversations With Lana Del Rey’. Now, he has conducted a rare interview with Del Rey for V’s fall issue in which she clarifies her controversial comments on feminism published in an interview with the Fader last year. She says:
“The luxury we have as a younger generation is being able to figure out where we want to go from here, which is why I’ve said things like, ‘I don’t focus on feminism, I focus on the future.’ It’s not to say that there’s not more to do in that area. I’ve gotten to witness through history the evolution of so many movements and now I’m standing at the forefront of new technological movements”.
“I’m not undermining other issues. But I feel like that’s obvious, like I shouldn’t even have to bring that up.”
