Lana Del Rey has revealed that she has no interest in feminist concepts. Speaking to Fader, she said, "For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept... Whenever people bring up feminism, I'm like, god. I'm just not really that interested. "I'm more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what's going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities." However, she went on to say that her "idea of a true feminist is a woman who feels free enough to do whatever she wants". Say what she will, but it's interesting that strong women like her and Shailene Woodley disassociate themselves with feminism, when everything they've done with their career proves otherwise. And we're willing to bet that if it came down to it, she'd want to be paid equally to her male counterparts.

Del Rey is preparing to release her new studio album Ultraviolence this month, and debuted the title track from the record yesterday (June 4).
