Published

A girl’s gotta do, what a girl’s gotta do?

For the past 48 hours, American singer and songwriter Lana Del Ray has been trending for her song and statements.

The 29-year-old recently premiered a new song – “F-ing My Way Up to the Top” and of course, it got people talking.

421428_gCOVER-LANA_R1.inddIn an interview with Complex Magazine for its August/September 2014 issue, she further gives insight into the track with provocative lyrics.

She tells the publication. “You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry…but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying.”

Lana who also performed at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s wedding in Italy, revealed that she likes physical love. “I like a hands-on love. [Pauses] How can I say this without getting into too much trouble? I like a tangible, passionate love.”

What’s your take BellaNaijarians? Is Sleeping your way to the top a real thing? or is it just one of those sexist myths.

Let’s Talk About It!

    Bella naija, based on her statement she did say none of them got her a record deal, which answers the question hard work really does pay. Love Lana Del Ray by the way!

    It seems to be that she was saying – yes I did sleep with a lot of men, hoping that it would pave my way, but it didn’t. She’s being brutally honest about saying that it wasn’t/isn’t the way to take

    Hard work is the only way to the top.

      Sure is…. just depends on what constitutes hard work to each one…. Its a very subjective terrain.

    If you have an opportunity to sleep your way to the top, do it! Afterall whats the diff bw that and sleeping with your boyfriend who is not your husband, and still remain at the bottom.
    Fyi, I dont sleep around cos I no get liver, but if you can why not.

    Oya all the virgins start trolling out…….3,2,1……..

    There is no easy way to the top. only hard work, persistence and God’s favor can make one

    sometimes you slut your way up and it works, sometimes you do and it doesn’t . Getting stuck down isn’t fun.. that i can ascertain. Lana is the kinda slut i do appreciate though.

    the bible say that our body is the temple of God, so sleeping to get yourself to the top is wrong, because anything that come’s easily does not last.

    • tee

      July 24, 2014 at 12:28 pm

      Erm, strictly based on your statement “..sleeping to get your way to the top is wrong..”, are you saying other forms of “sleeping..” are acceptable? Winks!

    • Thatgidigirl

      July 24, 2014 at 1:58 pm

      If you think sleeping your way to the top is easy success, try sleeping with a man your father’s age that has a swollen stomach that looks like he ate a forbidden animal…..add mouth odour and scaly skin to that, then come back here to say its easy. Its not easy success, its degrading success but for some girls its the success that matters.

      Peeps think it’s simple and clear cut. These men won’t treat you like a girlfriend o,more like a hoe cos you want something in return so they pound it like it’s going outta style…common ladies, who wants that? Leaving you feeling used and degraded but ‘richer’

    [email protected],i guess on the judgement day you will tell God you ****ed your way to the top right? there is definitely no justification for fornication!

    Why are all the girls we call “Bad/Slut” end up marrying the cutest, rich, educated dudes?. And they actually make it to the top regardless?

    • maria

      July 24, 2014 at 4:20 pm

      because they are not hypocritical they let the guy see what he is getting and when they meet guy instead of forming “Jesus touched me” the give it there all. girls who fuck around know what they want. all those sluts in my school then are married now to cute rich guys and guess what they are happily married cos we are still friends but the spirikoko once are as single as it is praying for any man to come

    • Jamce

      July 25, 2014 at 4:53 pm

      @maria, please what is your definition of happily married. Is it what you are told or what you see on the outside.

    • Iamnephiza

      July 24, 2014 at 5:09 pm

      Ms Bossom you just took the. Word out of my mind. Been actually thinking about this for a while now . But that’s just the fact, the bad gals always end up with good guys. I just feel like it’s irony or maybe they just put themselves out there more. Who knows?

    • nene

      July 24, 2014 at 8:59 pm

      at the end of the day, the question you need to think about is “how do they sleep at night”. all that glitters is not gold. most of thee women are popping pills, they are not at peace with themselves, they are depressed, etc

    • brules

      July 25, 2014 at 4:37 pm

      Thank you Nene! And if getting married to a rich cute guy is their definition of success,then………

      July 24, 2014 at 9:09 pm

      They seem to know how to get what they want others sit down and call those men names like its done on this blog. ”You know men……..all they know is sex, they are all the same thing, they are useless’ you keep ranting while those girls use what they have discovered about men to their advantage

    • Uptohere

      these so-called “bad girls” have become good at cleaning up their act,most especially in church. which is why i still feel that if you enter church to find babe, shine your eye well cos bad-girls turned good full there and dem don dilute themselves with the virgins.but still..the past will catch up with them, most especially when the good husband finds out his lovely “good” wife used to f23k his former boss and his paddies …steady.

    hmm you can sleep your way to the top(not saying its okay) just know that your oga can give your job to the next chick that opens her legs for him. You were spicy then but you sure aren’t spicy now.

    • eesha

      July 24, 2014 at 2:43 pm

      By then you for don port to another job, if not OYO.

    Those that are sleeping around don’t forget that AIDS still exists and they have not found a cure yet. Don’t let anyone fool you, condom does not always work.

    Like Que said, hardwork is subjective. U cnt say dat sombody who slept their way 2 d top didn’t work hard. If can u say dat, oya go n try it.

    C open platform 4 critics

  17. Sunshine

    July 24, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    Hmmmm! Hardwork, right attitude, God’s favour and fate will always take you to the top. The boss you are sleeping with today may leave the organization today. He is also an employee afterall. Hardwork, confidence and a good competitive spirit will take you to the top. Do not be fooled.

  18. TANTRA

    You can sleep your way to the top. It doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are at the top. Try not to sleep again. Stay awake.

      ‘Stay awake’……..#Dead at that!!!

    If it didn’t work for Lana, it definitely works in Nigeria. It is the easiest way to make a breakthrough, I say breakthrough because it will not necessarily get you to the top. Knowing what to do after getting your foot in the door is how you will get to the top

  20. olaedo

    f- your way to the top might not be a good idea because you might to keep f- to keep your space at the top.

    If u had to sleep your way there, it ain’t d top, as far as I am concerned. We all know those who passed their exams by studying. One thing my lecturer always said, “Would you refer your relative in another town to your classmate who u know didn’t succeed the honest way?” If No, then he ain’t at d top. Wetin be top sef? Fendi bags? Gucci shoes? Abeg!

    As much as we try to not to admit. It’s all around us. There are so many ladies out there who are sleeping their way to the top. This in itself may not be good. Chicks are doing it and they are balling

    You can sleep ur way to the top n still be intelligent. Combination of talents. Supplimenting their hard work with leg spreading. Most women who sleep their way to the top aren’t necessarily lazy just unscrupulous..

    I do know a girl who is intelligent and slept her way to the top….

    i was just gonna say, I know really smart women who have slept with people (out of frustration, cos as we know, merit alone does not always get you what you deserve) to get their foot in the door and then gone on to wow the organization and achieve greater and enduring success from that initial opportunity.

    Airheads on the other hand, who all they have to offer is the yansh, are easily replaced and are a dime a dozen. They keep their place in the “top spot” by renewing their eligibility (with the yansh of course). if they ever fail to deliver, they get canned.

    I am not saying that sleeping your leg in the door (so to speak) is okay, but sadly, we live in a less than ideal world and good people have and are being pushed by some really dire circumstances to do some questionable things. We can not judge anyone ESPECIALLY if we have not walked int heir shoes.
