Lana Del Rey Won't Sing 'Cola' Anymore After Harvey Weinstein

Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey is cutting her 2012 song "Cola" from all future set lists after Harvey Weinstein, who's referenced in the song's lyrics, has been accused by scores of women of sexual harrassment and assault.

The line in the track that references Weinstein says: “I got sweet taste for men who're older/ It's always been so it’s no surprise/ Harvey’s in the sky with diamonds/ And it’s making me crazy/ All he wants to do is party with his pretty baby.”

Lana told MTV News: "When I wrote that song I suppose I had like a Harvey Weinstein/Harry Winston type of character. I envisioned a benevolent diamond-bestowing-upon-starlets visual. I thought it was funny at the time. I obviously find it really sad now, and I support the women who have come forward and think they're really brave for doing that."

The Lust For Life singer added that she's no longer comfortable with the song, and permanently retiring it is "the only right thing to do." Watch the interview, below:
