Don't call Lana Del Rey a feminist.

In a new interview with Fader, the "West Coast" singer admits she doesn't really care for talking politics when it comes to women's rights.

"For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept," she says. "I'm more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what's going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities. Whenever people bring up feminism, I'm like, god. I'm just not really that interested."

However, Del Rey adds, "My idea of a true feminist is a woman who feels free enough to do whatever she wants."

Del Rey also reveals to the mag that she has a secret illness she's be living with for years.

Referencing a performance she did in Dublin back in 2013 in which she broke down and cried on stage, Del Rey explained, "I'd been sick on tour for about two years with this medical anomaly that doctors couldn't figure out. That's a big part of my life: I just feel really sick a lot of the time and can't figure out why. I'd gotten these shots in Russia, where we'd just been. It was just heavy. It's just heavy performing for people who really care about you, and you don't really care that much about yourself sometimes. I thought it was sad. I thought my position was sad. I thought it was sad to be in Ireland singing for people who really cared when I wasn't sure if I did."
