After drawing attention on Instagram earlier in the week for defending her new album cover and saying she isn’t capable of being racist because she’s “dated rappers,” Del Rey is now backpedaling after saying she doesn’t believe President Trump willfully incited the riot at the Capitol last week.
Speaking to BBC Radio 1 Monday, Del Rey (born Elizabeth Woolridge Grant) said she didn’t think Trump knew what he was doing when he gave his address urging his followers to “fight much harder” to defend the “stolen” election and to “show strength” at the Capitol.
Del Rey told the BBC she thinks Trump should be given the benefit of the doubt.
“You know, he doesn’t know that he’s inciting a riot and I believe that,” Del Rey said.
Del Rey also said that she thought the riot “needed to happen.
“The madness of Trump… As bad as it was, it really needed to happen,” Del Rey said in the interview.

“Just to take a moment to say that what I was describing w the bbc was that Trump is so significantly impaired that he may not know what he was doing due to his significant lack of empathy and the wider ranging problem is the issue of sociopathy and narcissism in America,” Del Rey said on Twitter Tuesday evening.
In the video she added, “I really don’t appreciate being painted as some white Republican who’s always been given everything and supports the incite of the Capitol riot.
I just think sometimes because of the way I look, it’s easy to paint this picture, but man, did I struggle to become the genuine singer-songwriter I am,” she said.
