When Lana Del Ray took to Instagram to post a rant in 2020, she could not have imagined it would blow up three years later. But some people believe that somehow the 38-year-old foretold recent happenings. Apparently, if you get one thing right, it’s called a lucky guess. But if your words start shaping reality, best believe the world’s going to pay attention. And right now, the world is paying attention to what’s being called the ‘Lana Del Rey prophecy.’
Back in 2020, the ‘Summertime Sadness’ singer dropped a bombshell in a post titled “Questions for the Culture“. In it, she named seven fellow female celebrity singers while stating some controversial opinions about them. Fans felt she was trying to make headlines by name-dropping such prominent celebrities. Fast forward to today, the tables seem to have turned as the named celebrities are making headlines of their own. And netizens have picked up on it, deeming it as ‘Lana’s prophecy.’
Lana Del Rey’s old post (dubbed “Lana’s prophecy”), that mentioned female artists, is currently going viral after each artist, in order, had a controversy or incident this year.

Beginning with Doja Cat who recently faced backlash for speaking out against fans’ demeanor, the predictions seemingly started coming true. From Ariana Grande and Camila Cabello’s recent relationship hassles to Cardi B’s outburst at a fan who threw a drink at her, the artists have faced one controversy after another. But the most uncanny part is not that they’ve happened all within a week. it is how the artists’ incidents are happening in the same order that Rey mentions them in!
Next on her unfortunate list are Kehlani, Nicki Minaj, and Beyoncé. Their fans are obviously not amused by the buzz around the reemerging post. On the other hand, some netizens are feeling convinced that Rey’s words have some mystical powers!
What does Twitter think of the infamous Lana Del Rey prophecy?
While the whirlwind of scandals has the internet going into conspiracy mode, users are quick to build their opinions. As the comments pour in one after another, some reflect support for the ‘Young and Beautiful’ singer. Others choose to stand by their own favorite female artists. With one user jumping on to defend Beyonce, saying, another defended Kehlani.
