Lana Del Rey's Song 'Cola' Inspired by Harvey Weinstein

The 'Summertime Sadness' crooner sings about getting 'sweet taste for men who're older' and then name-drops the movie honcho.

AceShowbiz - Lana Del Rey's track called "Cola" is reportedly inspired by Harvey Weinstein. An insider told Page Six that the 32-year-old singer whose real name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant penned the song after the movie honcho pursued her.

Several years ago, she was enlisted by The Weinstein Company to write soundtrack for 2014's movie "Big Eyes". The song earned her a Golden Globe nomination. "Lana Del Rey exemplifies strength, femininity, and independence as an artist," the Weinstein said back then.

"Cola" is taken from her third extended play "Paradise" which came out in 2012. She sings in the track, "I got sweet taste for men who're older /It's always been so it's no surprise /Harvey's in the sky with diamonds /And it's making me crazy /All he wants to do is party with his pretty baby."

Harvey reportedly flipped out when he heard the lyrics. "Harvey went bananas and insisted Del Rey change the lyrics, which she did, removing Harvey's name, so the line now goes, 'Ah he's in the sky with diamonds and he's making me crazy,' " the source claimed.

Despite the alleged changes made at Harvey's demand, Lana still could be heard clearly singing "Harvey" in the song. She also refers to his wife Georgina Chapman, "Come on baby, let's ride /We can escape to the great sunshine /I know your wife and she wouldn't mind." Although seemingly suggesting that they had affair, she allegedly turned him down.

Rumor has it, Harvey did not just sexually harassed actresses. He bullied them into wearing his wife's fashion line Marchesa on red carpet. She reportedly knew about his "bad behavior" but chose to turn a blind eye because "they both benefited from the relationship."

Georgina Chapman dumped Harvey Weinstein after he fell from his grace. "My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband," she said. "Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time."
