I hear tell me something naïve rather than tell me something nice, at least it doesn't sound like nice to me...

Agree. I had the same thoughts.
 

I also think the "Lay me down tonight in my linen and curls" line could possibly be a reference to Lorde's young age, like she has to be put to bed like a baby.
 

Also agree that this line doesn't add up. Maybe the song's mostly about Lorde, but this line is directed at someone else?
 

Mimicking me is a fucking bore. :usrs:  :troll:

 

Also, "Need you baby, like I breathe you, baby

Need you baby, more, more, more, more
Need you baby, like I breathe you, baby
Fucking need you baby, more, more, more more"

 

She's being sarcastic/sardonic in response to this quote:

"I listened to that Lana Del Rey record and the whole time I was just thinking it’s so unhealthy for young girls to be listening to, you know: 'I’m nothing without you.' This sort of shirt-tugging, desperate, don’t leave me stuff. That’s not a good thing for young girls, even young people, to hear"

I have a confession that I thought she was talking about STDs when I first heard "You got nothing / I got tested".  :suicide:  Awkward/TMI.

Probably a good idea if you're fucking your way to the top.

The last:
 
Lay me down tonight
In my linen and pearls
Lay me down tonight
I'm you're favorite girl
 
And also it doesn't sound like 'tell me something nice about your favorite girl'
I can only hear 'tell me songs at night about your favorite girl'?

Diss songs are as old as Rock 'n Roll.  Lana generally keeps her mouth shut in her interviews about other performers, but clearly likes to write songs that are deeply personal and emotional to her.

 

Lesson here ... don't piss off Lana, or get a song written about you!  You go girl!

A little something I noticed a while ago but never posted...

 

A possible explanation for the Riviera Girls thing

 

09881df5409bd4786330636aa9475ba5.480x329

 

The Riviera (colloquially, "the Riv") is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Winchester, Nevada.The resort has one long-running show: Crazy Girls, a topless show.

 

Didn't she say she met Dan A. at the Riviera club or something like that?

Riviera can also refer to a bit of the mediterannean area that includes France (Côté d'Azur) and Italy.

I was just about to post something like this. The tour booklet doesn't add anything new. 

 

Listening to the live versions, I'm beginning to believe again that it is "drag and..."

I've got that website bookmarked for like 3 months because it was once posted at MarinaBoards but idk how reliable it is. I guess they wouldn't sell something they don't have the rights to. Here's more about the website: http://www.musicnotes.com/blog/about/

i'm pretty sure it's dragon.

if this is a diss song, dragon would be her showing her power and dominance.

calling someone a whore could mean a literal whore or fame whore.

 

anyways, this is the song that made me realize Lana is queen.

I may be irrationally angry but how does "dragon" literally make any sense? I feel like "I'm 'a drag' and you're 'a whore'" at least has some logic to it....general public can see Lana as a "drag" due to her more melancholy music.

I always get Marilyn Monroe vibes from this song. It's like Lana is singing it as a bit of a joke, but was actually thinking of Marilyn at the time too.

Everyone knows Marilyn slept with people in the modelling and movie industry, and then JFK.

And the whole "this is my show" just reminds me of her so much because in the end, she was the most famous female of her time and the people she slept with were nothing (ok besides jfk obviously, but that was an affair, not her trying to get to the top).

 

And the "lay me down tonight in my linen and curls/diamonds and pearls" - how can that not remind you of everything Marilyn?
