    I think she just moved back to Australia, where she’s originally from, after her contract with TaP management ended. She had been Lana’s assistant since 2012!
     
    Some people say there was a falling out between them but I don’t think that’s true, as it hasn’t been proven anywhere and Instagram stans just like to stir up drama. Plus, Lana referred to Stella as her friend in a January 2018 interview with NPR during their World Cafe program, while in-between stops on the LA to the Moon tour (which would’ve been after she moved away).

    Probably a little off topic so apologies, but since Stella was mentioned, do we know why she left or is no longer Lana’s assistant?

    I have a feeling like maybe 3-5 years from now you’ll revisit NFR! and so much time will have passed that you’ll just be able to enjoy and love the album!

    NFR came out the day before i went to America to start my studies. Listening to NFR for the first time in a plane while the sun set above the clouds was an experience. Every time i listen to nfr it reminds me of the beginning of a new chapter in my life, and funny enough i got my heart broken two months later so listening to nfr was really comforting. As for COCC, nothing is happening, i’m back home and it’s depressing and boring. I’ll start college in 2021 so I hope COCC is there for me during that time

    Lana’s releases always arrive in milestone-type moments in my life & somehow manage to align with my life events, so I’m hoping that’s a positive thing lmao
     
    NFR was released right after my ex cheated and ghosted before telling me he was permanently leaving the country. I remember hearing California after I had spent days begging him to stay in America (clown behavior, I know) & had never felt more clocked by a song in my life. Cinnamon Girl and Love Song really helped me navigate the uncertain feelings towards starting a new relationship that followed the breakup. 
     
    COCC’s release will be around the time I’m applying for graduate school and hopefully just before interviewing. If COVID rates decline, I’ll also be traveling to Nebraska to visit family with my boyfriend around then, too, so maybe I’ll have Chemtrails in time for the Midwest vibe lmao

    Is now the time in y’all’s personal life for new Lana music? NFR came at a perfect time because I had just started college. I’m curious to see if COCC will arrive for all of us at an integral or pivotal moment in our lives.

    WELL HELLO! 
     

     
    And welcome to the first edition of what I hope to be many DrUnK cOvErS brought to you by yours truly. What I enjoy about these visuals - aside from the tasty beverages - is that I don’t second guess the artistic direction. I just do what feels right. So without further ado, a retro take on American Standards and Classics:

    She looks so luscious and honestly looks like she's having so much fun. The talent really returned in full.
     
    and glad nothing controversial has happened recently so I can fully enjoy this

    Those are the original lyrics in the aria. While the song is a jazz 'standard', The Gershwin Estate actually still wields and exercises an extremely rigorous hold over the rights and performance of the song, which shouldn't/can't be changed without their express permission. It's much easier for artists to just adhere to Gershwin's original lyrics, so most covers include this line.
     
    For example - when Sublime used the opening melody of the song they wanted the lyrics to be "Doin' time, and the living's easy" - the request was denied and the use wasn't granted until they changed it back to "Summertime and the livings easy".
     
    You're correct however, the word "Mammy" has fallen out of contemporary use and is now considered offensive - it should not be used outside its original historical use.

    I'm glad I bought two bottles of wine earlier. I'll be swaying alone to this all night

    This is embarrassing I think but up until not that long ago, I though that old money started not with “Blue Hydrangea”
    ...
    but “Blue Eyed Angel”
     
    I mean it still kinda fits so whatever 😂😂

    I could care less about the cover. Lana's voice will make the track shine. This is a standard that has been done a million times and the melody is perfect for her. This isn't some high school kid at a talent show. It's Lana Del Rey!!!!!
