Lana Del Rey has finally addressed the mesh mask she was seen wearing to an event last month.
The singer wore the controversial accessory to a meet and greet at Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles, where she signed copies of her poetry book Violets Bent Backwards Over The Grass.
LA county has instructed people to wear a cloth face covering when speaking to people outside of their household in public and private spaces as the Covid-19 pandemic rages on.
Lana’s silver face covering, which had holes in it, divided her fans when pictures from the signing were posted online.
So far the Born To Die singer has remained silent on the matter but recently spoke out in response to an article from The Michigan Daily.
The star explained that the mask had plastic inside it, so her mouth and nose were, in fact, covered as required.
She tweeted: ‘Great article. The mask had plastic on the inside. They’re commonly sewn in by stylists these days.’
‘I don’t generally respond to articles because I don’t care. But there ya go,’ she went on.
‘Same goes for everyone’s masks in my video. I’m lucky enough to have a team of people who can do that.’
Violets Bent Backwards Over The Grass was also released as an audiobook/spoken word album in late July.
It came after Lana took to Twitter to defend her political beliefs after fans began to speculate she had voted for Donald Trump in the US presidential election.
As fans patiently wait for her new album, she has lent her voice to Liverpool FC documentary The End Of The Storm, singing a haunting cover of You’ll Never Walk Alone.
