Lana Del Rey's Dad Disses Lorde on Twitter

by at .  Updated at . Comments

And you thought your dad was embarrassing on Twitter.

Ad account executive Rob Grant - who also happens to be the father of Lana Del Rey - has launched a bizarre Twitter offensive against Lorde, whom he clearly regards as a rival of Lana's.

When a friend tweeted to Grant that Lana's forthcoming album is "addictive," Rob replied, "More addictive than Pure Heroine," referring to Lorde's debut release. In all likelihood, Grant then dislocated his shoulder in an effort to pat himself on the back for his clever pun.

Okay, so it's a pretty mild insult, but it still seems strange that Grant feels it's appropriate to tear down other artists in the name of building up his daughter.

No stranger to feuds with other artists, Lana attacked Lady Gaga in a song that leaked online last summer. 

For his part, Grant has reportedly bankrolled Lana's career and many stage name changes up to this point, so he may feel that disrespecting teenage girls on Twitter is a way of protecting his investment.

The always classy Lorde has yet to respond to Grant's comment but if she decides she needs an old guy to get her back in this fight, she can always call on her new friend George Brett.

Seth Rogen vs. Nancy Grace
Nancy Grace wondered aloud on Twitter whether pot was to blame for a guy killing his wife. Seth Rogen replied that the anchor is a "dumbass."

Tyler Johnson, you are a lying loser. It was a silly joke and a pun from LDR's dad supporting his daughter. Not a diss or an online offensive. WTF?! I feel dumber for reading this shit. Did you really go to college to write made-up gossip. I swear I would kill myself. And @Leelou, nobody said LDR was for little girls anyway. You pearl clutching feminazis should listen to katy perry or Miley cyrus if you want cute and fuzzy.

You should hear the latest from an interview with Lana about Ultraviolence
" I sing, for example, "he hit me and it felt like a kiss", a feeling I love." http://touch.metro.se/noje/lan... Not surprised Ella thinks she is a bad example to young girls she's screwed up all her lyrics are like this.

I don't know if you are not anglophone or are borderline retarded but your spelling and grammar... GOD!! Why wouldn't a supportive dad interact with his daughter's fans anyway. So obsessed with LDR you can't even make sense. It's not like she is plastered all over the radio and media. Just listen to Lorde (who is btw) and leave LDR alone, idiot

@simm it's called auto correct
given that most if Lana's fans are little girls that her 66 year old dad hangs out with on twitter whilst she promotes anti feminist values and domestic violence I'd say it's all really inappropriate get over it don't be such butt hurt jock

You are fucking dumb. Most of her songs that you think are anti-feminist or support domestic violence are about love. It's her love life. You're just too close minded and ignorant to see anything else.

You have yet to point out where I lied. Are most of her fans really little girls, because youtube says most are in their twenties. Whose fault is it that little girls are listening to something inappropriate? An artist creating what suits them (with an age restriction on the album cover for swearing, drug references and adult themes) or the parents who don't care what their kids consume. Or are you one of those people who wanted to censor r-rated Superbad and m-rated Grand Theft Auto because of curious kids and their lousy parents. Like I said, she is easy to avoid and if you and others like you give her no attention, she will lose influence. Or are you really scared that more people prefer her "anti-feminist values and domestic violence" over your feminazi values. LDR is a beautiful, independent women dating a man her age and utilising her talents as she sees fit but like most feminists you aren't happy unless she utilises them in ways that you like. In contrast, 17 yr old Lorde is dating a much older guy but you love her because she is still malleable and attacks other women for not behaving in ways YOU find appropriate. Can't you see that LDR is too independent and too much her own person to succumb, so your attacks on her and her family are not just spiteful but pointless.

Oh no dear. You shaded Lana del Rey with this article. First, what Lana's father sad is not an insult by any measure, he thinks that her daughter album will be better. Second, Lorde insulted openly Lana's work calling it irrelevant and inappropriate for young girls. Lana never responded directly to this insult but it's clear that nobody loves Lorde in her camp
