vg final video isn't the original first version she made, the one that's up on her vevo is heavily edited and had a bunch of footage replaced because they (obviously) couldn't optain the rights to all the clips

 

 

although i don't think she's much more done up than what she used to wear at that time, NA being a good example of something that comes from around the same time. both are very different with their various outfits and different locations to let's say.. idk diet mtn dew or other much earlier works

 

The explosion during the intro of the original version always sends me

But yeah, I see what you mean. NA isn't that far off in terms of styling but this look/shot makes me really suspicious for some reason. It just looks a bit more 'planned' in my eyes.

Edit: I forgot how amazing she looks in this MV

Do you think that the reason Lana doesn't wear makeup or do any type of hair care, is because of that guy she's dating? I had a used to have a friend that always had cute makeup looks and wore cute outfits suddenly quit. I asked her why, and she told me her boyfriend liked the natural look and did't let her wear makeup or tight clothes. I feel like her recent lack of anything beauty related, is a out of character. She always looked nice in the past, and put a lot of effort into her appearance. She doesn't even seem to wear light, natural looking makeup. Just bare faced. Her hair also looks very dry and straw like. She doesn't seem to like taking anytime for self-care. Just wondering if you guys think it's the guy she's dating is controlling or if she's going through a deep depression? A lot of abusive men have issues with their girlfriends looking pretty, because they're insecure.

A lot of abusive men have issues with their girlfriends looking pretty, because they're insecure.

We can't know for sure what's going on inside her head or her heart, but I do believe she's depressed. I hope she isn't, but I can feel it. Thinking she's happy because she's smiling or laughing with her friends is a bit...short-sighted? Depression doesn't take away your ability to momentarily experience and/or display joy. She's not in a good place and it shows. It's very common in people who struggle with depression to give up on their appearance, and feel too drained to make an effort for anything. It would explain a lot...

 

At the same time, it's really frustrating how society expects women to put on makeup to look "presentable". As someone who wears a full face of makeup to go to the freakin supermarket, I can tell you, that shit takes time. It takes effort. I do it because I like it, but I know that for many women it feels like a chore. Not everyone is a makeup enthusiast. Maybe being bare faced makes her feel free.

 

That said, you definitely bring up an interesting point that I hadn't even considered. It's true that many fucking psychopaths men approach beautiful, beautifully made up & well dressed women, with the intention of slowly tearing down their confidence and brainwashing them into giving up on their appearance. It's fucked, and I see it all the time. The fact that Lana tends to date homely losers average looking men who are less successful than her, makes this entirely possible. I really hope it's not what's going on though, she deserves so much better than this :(

I have a few :P

- Honeymoon is better than UV. LFL and BTD are also better than UV. I still love UV though, its just my least favourite.

- Lust for life would have been better without tomorrow never came, groupie love, in my feelings, and with a solo version of summer bummer, best American record, and roses bloom for you as an interlude.

- Without You and Lucky Ones are amazing songs.

I agree to both but the first one to an extent. I really dislike L4L. Lol. But if it didn't exist, UV would be my least liked. To me it's Honeymoon, Born To Die, Ultraviolence and then L4L. 

 

Anyways, I'm gonna extend on that opinion: it's underwhelming. Not even the best songs are that good. I don't hate it but... yeah. I think the only songs that have aged nicely since 2017 are TNC,  Change and BPBP.

ok...imma say it...

Lana's longest songs per album (Off To The Races, Cruel World, The Blackest Day, Heroin) are her best songs but Venice Bitch broke that chain. (unless, somehow, there's a song longer than VB on NFR)

Lana’s writing works better as songs... not poetry. At least the style she’s going for now (her writing became more simple during UV). I don’t like any of the poems she’s shared and wish she’d focus more on her music. I prefer Florence Welch’s style of writing- don’t kill me, but I’ve been spoiled with her Useless Magic book and Lana’s poetry book feels like a weak attempt at duplicating that.

She hasn't written a truly great song in around 4-5 years. Sure, there have been good songs, but none have been great. Everything just feels like a failed attempt at recreating past themes she once perfected. I still have hope for her, and I'll probably keep supporting her music, but I'm so bored by everything she's released the past for years that I doubt I'll ever love a new song again.

They should have made In My Feelings a single. Would have done better then White Mustang.

I LOVE Florence's poetry book. The work inside is gorgeous and the way she pulled it off aesthetically is wonderful. 

 

If Lana is self publishing I imagine she won't do too much to make it look appealing. A white cover with the title of the book and the poems insides with no photos.

I prefer the radio mix of West Coast to the album/single version :O

 

Also I love all the Honeymoon artwork and visuals + The LFL visuals and artwork (besides the white mustang video which is out of place and the cover for summer bummer which I really hate?)

Honestly, I am ready for my upcoming crucifixion for this post, but here goes..

 

I get this is a public forum where we can post our opinions, whether they are positive or negative. However, I feel recently there has been unnecessary criticism towards Lana. This includes her recent BUKU performance - I don't see why what she wears and how much make-up she puts on matters so much, and of course her setlist is going to be less stan-friendly (because she is rightly tailoring it for a festival). As well as this, other areas seem to receive so much backlash at the moment, and I really struggle to understand why, e.g., her poetry, her friends, her instagram posts, her current lifestyle (excluding hillsong of course), her appearance when in public as well as on stage, her vocals on stage (I personally think they are still brilliant, but we struggle to notice this because the playback is too loud), etc. Firstly, if we only focus on the negative, then that is all we are going to see. Secondly, do all these things that we are criticising really matter? Why do we care so much about what she wears, or what instagram filter she uses, or that she likes to attend yoga and drink matcha tea? We are all here because we have a special connection to Lana and her music (I am assuming), and that seems to be lost for a lot of people here. I think we need to take a step back, let Lana be herself and live her life without so much judgement, and be more accepting/forgiving/tolerating as a fan base. Once we do that, there will be a happier fan base who can fall back in love with Lana again (for those who may have lost their connection, as I notice quite a few members seem to feel this way).

 

Anyway, thank you for coming to my TEDtalk.

girl like it's all because of delayed album/no news 
so her every action is under intense criticism atm 
everyone's ready to drag her 
if she were to release the album by now with a proper era planned in advance everyone would be much more positive & happy
regardless the performance would still get dragged cause it's lazy but everyone would not be waiting ready to attack her every move

This happens with SOOOOO many artists it’s ridiculous. People will legitimately say ‘Lana and Charli collab!’ with their whole chest and not even STOP to think about how that would work lmfao..
