Lana Del Rey Retiring "Cola" From Live Shows After Harvey Weinstein Accustations

Lana Del Rey is adjusting her tour setlist following the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

In an interview with MTV News, the singer was asked about whether the song was about Harvey Weinstein.

"I envisioned, like, a benevolent, diamond-bestowing-upon-starlets visual, like a Citizen Kane or something", Del Rey added. I thought it was amusing at the time, and I obviously find it really sad now. "I think they're really courageous for doing that".

Del Rey also voiced support for the dozens of women who have come forward with allegations against Weinstein of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and rape.

"I think they're really fearless for doing that", she said.

In the wake of the accusations leveled against Weinstein - as well as Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Brett Ratner and Jeremy Piven, all within the past week - Del Rey said she no longer feels comfortable including "Cola" in her live sets. But since the mega-producer's fall from grace, Cola takes on an uglier tune - one that Del Rey doesn't plan on singing to fans. "Harvey's in the sky with diamonds and he's making me insane", she sings before insisting: "Come on baby, let's ride / We can escape to the great sunshine / I know your wife and she wouldn't mind".

What's more, it sound like "Cola" might be retired for good. "And it's making me insane", Del Rey sings on the track.

The indie pop star knows Weinstein and even wrote two songs for The Weinstein Company-produced drama Big Eyes. Though, she wrote the tunes after Burton screened the film her.
