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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

Orgspasm : Doesn't that first hot take essentially imply that women have inferior brains?

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

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

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

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

Hey Jude : I like Lana’s music (sometimes) I think it’s catchy but it’s not some sacred women’s manifesto that only the most in tune with her femininity type of women can understand in fact in most cases it’s the opposite like teen girl bad soap opera that middle aged man trying to understand young women would write

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

Hey Jude : 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

Criley : *straight male critics LIKE YOU*

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

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.

brownguy903 : "Just like the boys can" sounds like the name of the next big indie band

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

Outdated Meme : Anal Del Ray

Jose Perez : Melon where are your eyeballs

I agree but, : LANA SIT ON MY FACE!

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

Stalin Valdez : Review Chip Skylark you Normie

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

ari : Sometimes I just try to focus on Anthony's eyes through his glasses

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.

sirdocblob : I would call Touche and La Dispute Melodic Hardcore

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.

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.

Sonali Deem : 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.

slepey : 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.

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

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.

trey waters : Straighthony Maletano

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.

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

Cashew Chestnut : WRONG. antnee is a MELON

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

Tom : Your teeth aren't actually the best in the game.

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

Malibu JoneZ : you're not fat melon <3

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.

Alex Anderson : Straight white cis male here who likes Lana

Kelly Danté : I clicked this video cos I thought Lana Del Rey was featuring on a Pitbull track... #DISAPPOINTED P.S. Will you be reviewing Tinashe's Joyride on TND soon?

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