ɪᴍᴀɢɪɴᴀʀʏꜰᴀɴʙoʏ : Melons can't "get" human music.

Whang! : "Baroque" I don't think that word means whatever she thinks it means.

feroui hamza : the only men who can get lana are radiohead

Jane Ross : Suggesting that straight men can't appreciate femmeness is itself just playing to gay man stereotypes. This seems to be a fan of and believer in stereotypes.

Mom's Spaghetti : You know the comment hurt when he goes on a minute-long rant about his lifestyle and habits

Criley : *straight male critics LIKE YOU*

Julia Anderson : I think they "get" her music, it just doesn't particularly appeal to masculine men. And yes, I'm using stereotypes. Of course not all masculine men dislike her.

zamba : to be fair you have to have a very high level of estrogen to understand lana del rey

Suzi Visser : To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Lana Del Rey. The writing is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of literature concepts most of the references will go over a typical listener’s head. There’s also lana’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into her stage persona- her personal philosophy draws heavily from Vladimir Nabokov’s literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of this music, to realise that they’re not just intellectual- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Lana Del Rey truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Lana’s existential catchphrase “My Pussy Tastes Like Pepsi Cola,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Americana themes. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Lizzy Grant’s genius wit unfolds itself through her music. What fools.. how I pity them. And yes, by the way, i DO have a “Fuck me Daddy” tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the daddies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel sweaties.

FLOWER PUNK : LET'S ARGUE: Single-race people can't "get" logic

DogBeef : Her username is "Lana Fan Fiction" 😂😂😂

Yung Jigglypuff : “R&B is more sexualized and has masculine friendly production” some of these tumblr chicks out of control

Alexis Diaz : Melon spent 2 minutes of a 12 minute video just bodying a lana del rey fan account

Tony Harrison : To be fair, you need a multi millionaire father and a fetishisation of poor, small town American to really understand Lana Del Rey's music.

Natasha B : "Women do things" -Anthony Fantano 2k18

vickie g : that's a lana del rey fan fiction account

Comthony Mentano : Who tf said the melon is fat? Some people have different body compositions but that doesn't mean theyre fat. Melon most certainly is healthier than 90% of the world.

luke666808g : I heard a Chinese metal band called Black Kirin, even though they're really good I was like "This is not okay! They're not allowed to make white music!" Now I have to travel to China and protest their shows and call them Nazis, and throw red paint at anyone who enters the venue.

Ned Kuczmynda : ugh, when is anthony going to stop looking at everything through rose colored glasses

Gone Swimming : So whose gonna tell sis that baroque music was male dominated and modern R&B music is predominantly women ... even men who make R&B music have to fight off gay rumors because “R&B is for Simps” cues Usher Chris Brown Neyo Trey songz Drake are all gay rumors because of the music they put out

Jasper Paolo : A large part of Lana’s appeal is that she’s not afraid to say that she’s an accessory to her man, she’s not really an independent woman. A lot of women (and some men) feel this way but are too afraid to say it due to the feminist backlash. So Lana’s music is an outlet for these people.

Jewlz Cartagena : Lana del Rey fan fiction makes me cringe harder than Vanilla Ice giving a gender studies class.

M M : If you've ever seen Breakfast at Tiffany's, then you "get" Lana Del Rey.

AH Productions : I love Lana. Everyone has a different taste. You like Radiohead, i do too. You like Death Grips, I don't.

Venenoso : You’re not a man you’re a melon

I agree but, : LANA SIT ON MY FACE!

Jose Perez : Melon where are your eyeballs

Dood Bro : I love how Melon just rips the Lana person apart.

Chaser Chaser : anthony is nicki manaj and reviewbrah is cardi b

Kirko : Drake is not a cultural appropriator due to the fact that Caribbean culture is heavily intertwined with black culture in Toronto. Making Dancehall music is paying homage to all of the people of Caribbean descent who populate Toronto. Its not a fad or a trend, Dancehall is all you hear in most urban Toronto clubs. Drake has had dancehall inspirations in his music since his debut album. If anything he is the reason we are seeing Dancehall's influence so frequently throughout mainstream pop.

Carter Sheehan : The Cardi B thing is true bc Nicki Minaj made it that way. Before, there were TONS of rap females co-existing (Lil Kim, MC Lyte, etc) but when she came in she monopolized it and became catty with anyone who tried to opposed her by being her same gender.

PWNED5805 : I could honestly listen to you talk about music hours. Have you ever thought about doing videos that weren’t necessarily reviews but like points of discussion in different genres of music or music as a whole?

dreaminginnoother : cultural appropriation. lol. It's stupid in every domain, but I personally love variety in music, and the best way to get a huge variety is to imitate others from various backgrounds. Makes for more interesting music.

8yrsold : I disagree w that person but I disagree with you on how you criticize her lyrically. Sure there are some cliches but those cliches are mixed in with a lot of references to mythology, philosophy, classic film, and there are plenty unique type of lyrics that visualize a certain “aesthetic” that is pretty unique. I also think that she is a huge influence on a lot of pop artists in 2018’s visual aesthetic. One thing I do think though, is that the reason lana’s old old songs and unreleased songs are better lyrically is because she’s releasing “safe” music. There are a lot of exceptions, but, overall, yeah.

Biishop : Varg had stabbed a band mate to death and was discovered with plans to blow up a church. While I do find his music to be good I don’t want to be associated with him.


REVEN6E : Melon more feminist than these Tumblr thots.

A2BS : can we have a "cringing with Lana Fan Fiction" episode

Cashew Chestnut : WRONG. antnee is a MELON

I'mAtTheBridge : I appreciate Lana Del Rey.

Deadpanlolli : Anthony have you heard of the Lizzy Grant stuff or the song pawn shop blues? I like the underground stuff better than what makes the final cut on albums a lot of the time.

lainepeezy : As far as the Cardi B and Nicki Minaj comment I think it has to do a lot with how similar they are. They sound similar. They rap similar. They even have a similar appearance and it comes off like Cardi B is emulating Nicki so that's why it seems like they can't coexist. Not just that they are both female rappers.

Stalin Valdez : Review Chip Skylark you Normie

Seth Bishop Music : what the hell is *masculine music production* LMAOO

Selfie Glam : How could you critisize Lana :( Name one other artist today who has a sound anything like her, vocally or productionwise.


Bassotronics : I do not agree with Anthony @ 10:05. Just because a song has the lyrics that talks about horror does not make it a horror song. It’s the instrumentation what defines the song or the music. For example, just because I take a Techno song and talk about trap does not mean it’s trap. It’s still techno. So if I hear horror punk, I expect the music to sound like a horror (with ghost and goblins sound effects etc.) despite the lyrical content. But if you can take a song horror sound effects and at the same time have horror lyrics then you have a winning combination.

fisk : 6:50 I believe the appropriate term is thicc

Sharlenn La : I feel like Lana Fan Fiction is a bit biased

Lucas Bicske : This is the best segment of the channel
