Lana Del Rey has explained why she wore a 'mesh mask' while meeting fans last month.
The singer caused a bit of a stir on social media when images appeared of her wearing a sparkly mesh mask while meeting fans and signing copies of her poetry book Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass at a Barnes & Noble store in Los Angeles.
Under LA rules, people were instructed to wear a cloth face covering when outside of their household.
The 35-year-old musician - whose real name is Elizabeth Grant - hit headlines when images of her and her sparkly mask were shared online last month.
One fan wrote: "YOU MAKE IT SO HARD TO STAN PLEASE WEAR A PROPER MASK."
While a second wrote: "Lana please wear a real mask I'm begging you to be safe."
However, the singer has now explained to her Twitter followers that the mask actually had plastic backing.
In response to an article from earlier this week that said wearing the mask may have got her 'cancelled', she wrote: "Great article. The mask had plastic on the inside.
"They're commonly sewn in by stylists these days.
"I don't generally respond to articles because I don't care. But there ya go. Same goes for everyone's masks in my video.
"I'm lucky enough to have a team of people who can do that."
Responding to a follower who told her it 'took long enough' for her to explain, she wrote: "Bro I'm working on two albums and excitedly and happily donating a million dollars throughout the nation.
"If I responded to everything I would be [shrugging emoji]."
Well, that's him told.
Following the mesh mask incident, Lana uploaded a photo of herself wearing an animal print mask, which was praised by her fans as a 'proper and real mask'.
