Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass is “the title poem of the book and the first poem I wrote of many,” explains Del Rey.
“Some of which came to me in their entirety, which I dictated and then typed out, and some that I worked laboriously picking apart each word to make the perfect poem,” she continues. “They are eclectic and honest and not trying to be anything other than what they are and for that reason, I’m proud of them, especially because the spirit in which they were written was very authentic.”

Del Rey also has a new album slated for September 5, which she revealed in a prolonged Instagram post on May 21. As she wrote in regards to the perception that she “glamorizes abuse,” her comments about artists together with Doja Cat, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B drew criticism on social media.
She clarified her feedback with one other Instagram post on May 23, saying that she had wanted to deal with “the importance of self-advocacy for the extra delicate and often dismissed, softer female personality.”
