Singer Lana Del Rey has been causing controversy online since she shared a selfie on Instagram of herself wearing a white dress, holding her cell phone in one hand and a gun in the other!

The publication in question follows a snapshot of the program of the Coachella music festival, which the artist will headline on April 12th and 19th.
Lana Del Rey's admirers are trying to make connections between the two photos and justify this photo that shows her with a gun.
While some make references to some of her lyrics sometimes involving firearms, others see a desire for revenge on the part of the Summertime Sadness singer, who did not win an award at last Sunday's gala.
“Get your Grammy,” several fans of the 38-year-old artist wrote. “This post is a warning to the Grammys.” “Bring your gun to get your Grammy,” other groupies added. “This is how we act. No roses, but guns Yes!”
“Don't ever drag me on stage again, Tay,” continues one fan, who clearly didn't like seeing Lana Del Rey being pushed on stage with her by Taylor Swift as she won the Grammy for Album of the Year last Sunday won.
In the hundreds of comments, some glorify carrying firearms and Americans' constitutional right to do so.
Irresponsible and worrying
“A very irresponsible publication on your part,” dozens of Internet users added under the photo taken by certain media outlets, including Rolling Stone magazine.
“The gun isn't edgy, it's stupid,” writes one reader. “Americans who glorify guns, what bad can happen?” jokes another. “A gun? Really? Bad press relations. Really bad,” adds a young woman.
Many people describe these types of photos of Lana Del Rey, an artist idolized by many teenagers, as disturbing and irresponsible, pointing out that her finger is also visible on the print.
