    Her speech was great. 
     
    I hope her grandmother gets better. I hope it isn't covid.

    The Grammies have been dead to me since 1989, when they finally introduced a heavy rock/metal category (about 20 years too late), only to give it to Jethro Tull (who are heavy rock/metal in the same way Adele is hip hop). Nothing that's happened since has changed my mind.

    Lana better collab with Emile again or we're kidnapping her chickens.

    I have a feeling with each album she’s gonna promote and try less and less, like LDR11 you will find the album in a paper envelope at the library  for 1 dollar…and nobody will know about it because she’s been off social media for years and living in the back of a Volkswagen going from city to city.

    I think that is something that music industry did in recent years: everything is so polished, well placed, layer after layer and we dont apreciate enough organic works anymore...  so glad that Lana is here to mess the things a little

    Okay, so here are my thoughts on Black Bathing Suit and a bit on Wildflower Wildfire:
     
    Black Bathing Suit is a journey through Lana's feelings during spring-summer 2020, and maybe even earlier in the year. It's clear that certain lyrics are in relation to things like the public response to QFTC, the absolutely vile comments people were making about Lana online, and what I think is the most interesting aspect of it all: the backlash Lana got on Mothers Day in 2020 for not posting about her mother, but rather making a post about why it can be a hard day for her and others (that whole situation pissed me off, but we don't have time to unpack all of that). I never knew if Lana had seen the hate from that post since she never addressed it, but it's clear to me through this album that she did. She literally says in the second verse of WW "You say there's gaps to fill in, so here, here's the deal..." and then the lyric about her mother. It was like her saying "you really want to know what I've been through? here you go". It's something that's so heartbreaking to listen to, but I think that for Lana, it felt important to say. 
     
    So more on BBS. Another lyric I want to highlight is the "your interest really made stacks out of it for me, so thanks for that", which I think is kind of sarcastic. Obviously NFR did fantastic in terms of sales and reception, so she's saying that the public's interest in the album really "made stacks" out of that album, but then we get the flippant "thanks for that" that we also get in Arcadia. It's not a genuine thank you. It's Lana being frustrated that despite people loving that album, they went right back to hating her just months after (I'm not getting into QFTC right now, I'm more so talking about the body shaming and general bullying that went on). And I think that the "you don't know me any better than they do" lyric is super interesting as well. There were a lot of assumptions being made about Lana around that time, so it's her saying "you don't know me any better than the rest of the public does, so don't act like you do". The whole song exudes this perfect mix of anger, vulnerability, confidence and a hint of sarcasm. She gives you that not only through her lyrics, but through her production and vocal delivery on the song. It's so smart and so creative.
