    Remember Taylor Swift won Best Pop Vocal Album in 2016 when the more talented and vocally gifted legend Florence Welch was nominated? Grammys truly have no taste

    I'm letting this go since taste is subjective (even though you've slandered TNC, Brooklyn Baby and you think GBA is one of the best. I'll give you points for liking Cruel World though) and because you're one of my favorite members. If you were someone else, I would put a big post on why Heroin stole Cruel World's wig and sent it to @@Stargirl's dimension.

    is there a link for the grammy entries, is that real?
     
    @@salvatore- I disagree with your interpretation of Heroin as IMHO it's a continuation of Coachella and what comes after
     
    If anything, I think it is the mirror to 13 beaches, which in essence was High by the beach
     
    so

    let me break down some reasons as to why I love it personally
     
    in terms of the placement, it makes all the difference- it starts off the final three tracks, all revolving around the idea of change. i see it as Heroin being the admission to the problem, she recognizes she needs to change; Change being the motivation, the desire to go- and Get Free taking the torch of desire and carrying it to a promise and commitment to herself & her surroundings.  i love how cold and hollow it sounds, it reminds me of the aftereffects of a heavy emotional scenario in which you or the person that just got off the episode is dying down, cooling off, fairly numb to their senses.  the lyrics are great, not saying LfL is bad lyrically but i personally didn't see many similar stanzas throughout LfL with previous work until Heroin (Love fits too just not sonically). the verses are written so, so nice. the 'Topanga's hot tonight, the city- by the bay. has movie stars and liquor stores in soft decay' the melody works great. plus the amount of one liners that are incredible that hit hard not only in the way its written- but sung.  "I want to leave I'll probably stay another year" to me is a perfect representation of depression, i dont want to be depressed- i want to be happy, but it doesnt seem plausible nor realistic so ill just stay in my current situation no matter how low it'll take me. "The Rumblin of distant shores sends me to sleep-but, the facts of life can sometimes make it hard to dream" same with above, it reminds me so heavily of my anxieties that can keep me up in the night, no matter how serene and perfect the place you're in physically- your mental state will forever force priority over your emotions. both Heroin and Cruel World play with her usual aesthetic- but i find Heroin to be more mature, purely in the sense that it uses her natural imagery without sounding like her previous work or relying on her buzzwords- 'party dress' is the easiest comparison. Heroin stays with her vintage starlets and alcohol and drugs whereas CW sounds a little more juvenile in her work, but thats purely because she was coming off of BtD- but extremely depressed, not having fully rinsed her stereotypical lyrics. with how cold and icy the song sounds and feels, it makes the explosive bridge that much more powerful- having her sing quietly and softly and then yelling loudly is a huge wake up- it's emotional, the notes are shifty- she swears, it's the perfect emotional breakdown. she's leaving what she knows is holding her back-   
    those are just a few reasons why i love Heroin- def not all but it's a big representation as to why i personally love and relate to it, much more so than Cruel World. Cruel World is a good song, i have general distaste for it mostly due to the countless live performances, but I can guarantee people love it a LOT more just because its on Ultraviolence. Most songs on there that would normally go for mediocre are boosted, just because it has UV instrumentals and was a part of the era.

    I love cruel world to death, and I love heroin too, but can't deny it really could use some more power. But as for the "I've really changed" part..it's probably the line that hit me the most out the whole album. It made my chest so tight and eyes watery. Cruel world could never

    But ya'll how can you be doing Cruel World dirty like this? The chorus and the screaming towards the end is so goood! "FUCKING CRAZAAAAY OHHHHHH" is better than "I'VE REALLY CHAAAAANGED"

    i just wanna say that's it's unhelpful and quite dangerous to imply that Lana's past history & her self-professed penchant for older men makes it plausible or probable that she'd willingly submit to Weinstein's advances. it's one step short of victim blaming & gross speculation about a situation that we simply don't know whether was consensual or abusive, or if it even happened at all.
     
    i've seen quite a few people in this thread write several variations of what essentially amounts to "Lana isn't the type to be abused", which is a naïve and sadly very incorrect take on how & why abuse happens. it's also pretty insensitive to speculate on consensuality based on her apparent friendly demeanor towards Weinstein, or the fact that some of her loved ones (namely her sister) seemed to have a cordial relationship with him at one point - taking a look at some of his proven victims' relationship with him over the years, all the smiling photos at industry events, etc. would suffice to prove my point.
     
    lastly - maybe nothing happened, maybe it happened and was consensual, or maybe it wasn't. we'll probably never know for sure, or not for a very long time, and song lyrics definitely aren't the way to prove anything, especially not in someone as prone to fantasy & half-truths as Lana. i just want to add that trying to own/appropriate abusive events in order to try to regain some sort of control over the situation is a frequent victim response, so even if Cola and FMWUTTT are indeed celebrating something that happened with "Harvey", it doesn't necessarily mean her agency in the real life situations played out exactly like it does in the songs.

    It's impossible to see the truth from Lana's lyrics or analyze them deeply, especially since much her lyrics are so characterized or melodramatic that you can't even tell if it's about her own life or how much of it is true. Ex. Kinda Outta Luck, lol do you really think Lana killed a man by hitting him with a gun for fun?

    It's such bullshit that some of you are assuming Lana/Harvey relations are true. We don't know if it is, and we certainly won't find out through Lana's niche for ambiguous lyricism. We shouldn't pretend to be detectives using unreliable and circumstantial evidence to find out the intricacies of their relationship and whether or not it was abusive. Hopefully Lana will clear it up soon, but in the meantime let's not assume it's true? It's one thing to discuss this controversy but it's another to claim something as true when it has not proven to be. There are so many victims in this mess and it's all so horrible, so let's not count Lana in just yet?

    Yeah... let's just go up to her and ask "Hey lana were you sexually abused by harvey weinstein?" i'm sure any abuse victim would love being tossed that question in a meet and greet.
     
    i swear. sometimes it's like y'all don't even think she's a human being.

    Well, this *completely* ruins my username. 
     
    Also, I honestly don't think it's appropriate to be gossiping about if Lana was harassed or assaulted by a serial creep and abuser. I don't think anyone would appreciate being the subject of that speculation. As another matter, I think often fans mistake Lana's lyrics for real life way too often and think they know things about her that they don't. Same with her comments to the press, many of them happen to not be true. Especially from her early career. I think she was nervous with the press and trying to live in this persona she created as Lana del Rey, and that led to a lot of strange comments that fans latch on to and take way too seriously.

    I feel very weird about this because Lana of course can do whatever she wants in her life and I don't want to preach @@her, especially since it's just now that i've heard about weinstein's doings but i know she has a knack for getting herself into dangerous situations, especially with men. So imagining her and harvey makes my blood freeze, even tho it shouldn't be my business. 
     
    He was clearly a huge admirer of her in 2012, I can only hope he kept his lecherousness for himself. At least we know she went off making an album with a much different sound (so we know she wasn't trying to surf on the craze around btd/pe/ss remix vibes) and didn't consider going for a career in acting or movies. So maybe that suggests she took some distance from all that? 
     
    I don't want this to have happened, who knows....

    1 Coachella, still my favorite and still listening and still what I said June 30, the #1 song of 2017.
    (and those that don't like the instrumentation (drum), listen to Marlene Dietrich's "Der Trummelman" (German for "Little Drummer Boy", and the stark live reading of "Where have all the Flowers Gone" .
