Oh this is a thread for me since I am collecting her inspirations for a long time now. 

 

Well first , lets talk about her music inspirations .

She loves the 'masters of every genre' . She loves Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen , Eminem , Biggie Smalls , Britney Spears and Nirvana . She is also a huge fan of Anthony and the Johnsons , the Crystal Method , The Beach Boys , Nina Simone , Elvis Presley , Chris Isaak , Bruce Springsteen and Jeff Buckley . 

She always listens to the same songs over and over again . The first single she ever bought was Coolios Gangsters Paradise . 

 

Her lyrical inspirations would be Allen Ginsberg and the other Beat poets , Walt Whitman  , Albert Camus and Sartre. She mentioned the last two in an interview and posted quotes of them . Allen Ginsbergs Howl was her introduction to the world of poetry and she said it changed her live , she is transporting a copy of it in her pocket . Cute , isnt it ?

She also loves self-help books like The Master Key System . Lolita the book and the movie is also a huge inspiration of hers. 

 

She generally loves the 50s, 60s and 20s . Fashion icons are Marilyn Monroe and Lauren Bacall .

Oh , her favourite movies are The Godfather 1 and 2 , American Beauty (the soundtrack influenced Born To Die a lot) , Sin City , Virgin Suicide and Scarface. 

 

And also this is a fitting quote of hers .

 

 

 

JJ: What is your biggest inspiration whether it be a thing, person, or place?

LDR: That’s a good one. My own imagination, and my own vision for the way my future could look is inspiring to me. The landscape of California, the energy of New York. The potential I see in possible new innovative technological advances we’re making day by day.

 

 

/close this thread .

Any questions ?

It's so funny that she says that Britney is one of her inspirations and none of her released stuff has a glipse of Britney on them, her unreleased stuff on the other side...

for some reason Lana only has likeable inspirations. :usrs: Coincidence? Maybe.
Not only Icons but Icons that are loved. Maybe many don't like Britney's music but I never met a person who dosen't like Britney. ;)

I don't if this has been mentioned / discussed elsewhere, and I do know it's kinda speculative, but bear with me...

 

Blanche Dubois. You know, of 'A Streetcar Named Desire'? I've recently re-watched the film and it got me thinking.

 

From Wikipedia - "(...) the former Southern belle has a lurid past (a marriage to a young homosexual who committed suicide when she discovered his secret; notorious sexual promiscuity; ongoing alcoholism, etc.) as well as genuine spiritual idealism and refinement."

 

Also her attraction to violent and "wrong" men / abusive relationships, the tragic death of her first love (albeit in very different circumstances), her insecurity and absolute need to be adored by everyone (especially men), and last but not least Blanche's iconic quote "I have always depended on the kindness of strangers", which Lana could be referencing in the Ride monologue as well as in Kinda Outta Luck and Carmen.

 

Carmen in particular sounds like it could have been at least partly inspired by her or a Blanche-like character --- Darling, darling, doesn't have a problem / Lying to herself cause her liquor's top shelf / It's alarming honestly how charming she can be / Fooling everyone, telling how she's having fun (...) Baby's all dressed up, with nowhere to go / That's the little story of the girl you know / Relying on the kindness of strangers / Tying cherry knots, smiling, doing party favours / Put your red dress on, put your lipstick on --- not to mention the little French interlude.

 

At the very least she's maybe a character Lana somewhat relates to / feels inspired by? I don't know, maybe it's too much of a stretch, but what do you guys think?

One of my favorite movies :crying2: . Um bonde chamado desejoooooooo aiiiiiiii. can it be? :raven:  Possible. :assad: I mean the "kindness of strangers"quote is very famouis. I never thought about that :oprah2:  and I saw that movie at least 4 times. Gentileza de desconhecidos its a common say here maybe that's why I didn't did the connection. You're a little genius aren't you? :whitney:

Kindness of Strangers

When I studied A Streetcar Named Desire in English, I noticed the 'kindness of strangers' part too and it reminded me of Lana. I do think her and Blanche have quite a bit in common cause they both have the sketchy-mystery-past and speak poetically, although Lana still has her marbles. I imagine Lana really liking her as a character for some reason.

It's one of my favourites as well. Vivien Leigh and Marlon Brando are absolutely fantastic in it!

 

The quote was obviously what caught my attention, but it was all the other similarities that really made me wonder... And then Carmen and that French interlude... But I dunno, maybe I'm just imagining things.

 

And OMG I'm definitely not, I just have way too much time on my hands. :$

I always got a Natural Born Killers vibe from a lot of her stuff. I don't remember if she ever mentioned the movie, so it might be speculation, but I think she has seen and loved it.

 

Like the way the movie uses lots of unrelated vintage clips to set a mood is similar to how Lana does it in her videos. That whole Ride-or-die, American sweetheart turned crazy with lots of bad wigs-kinda style that Mallory Knox has going on reminds a lot of Lana too.

I nearly throw up with that coincidence. I have not seen this movie i will now. I am literally shivering about the likeness of what seems to be this movie and Miss Del Rey over here.
