After years and years of seeing her music videos, interviews, photographs, discussing her on these very threads, adoring her but also criticizing her a lot, I'm finally able to say that I've seen Lana Del Rey live. It was so surreal I still cannot begin to fathom the single thought of it.
The crowd was savage but I still managed to get pretty close to the stage so I was quite delighted. I remember giggling as the decorators prepared the stage with at least twenty different potted plants and palm trees. When she got out it was fucking insane: she was gorgeous and seemed quite joyful. She spoke a lot of Spanish and the whole cigarette moment was lovely PORRR FAVORRRR lol
The singing was a little on the weak side, she seemed kinda lazy and sang mostly half of the lyrics on each song. I don't blame her though, for someone who's accustomed to stand still all that walking and dancing while singing must be exhausting. I still enjoyed it, but I do understand the complaints about it.
Anyway, when she started singing Black Beauty I felt as if my heart was being torn to little pieces and I started crying really really hard and that was just such a fucking beautiful moment. I don't think I've ever felt quite like that before. It's a moment I'll remember forever.
I feel so lucky even though I didn't get to touch her or kiss her, I don't have much to add.
