American singer-songwriter, Lana Del Rey upset her fans due to her choice of face mask at a recent book signing in California.
The star appeared at a branch of Barnes and Noble in Los Angeles, where she read passages from her new poetry book Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass.
At the event, Del Rey wore a glittery, mesh face mask that she’d previously used in a cover shoot for Interview magazine.
It would appear that the mask provided no barrier to the spread of Covid-19.
“Lana, please wear a real mask. I’m begging you be safe,” wrote a concerned fan, under an Instagram photo of the star at the book signing.
“I love Lana but this is incredibly irresponsible,” said another. “Girl, we’re in the middle of a pandemic,” added a third.
Del Rey’s sister, Caroline “Chuck” Grant, who livestreamed the poetry reading on Instagram, said the singer had “tested negative” and was remaining six feet away from her fans.
However, pictures posted on the pop culture showed something else.

Face coverings reduce the spread of coronavirus droplets from coughs, sneezes and speaking.
They should mainly be worn to protect other people from coronavirus, rather than yourself.
