    So maybe she and Jimmy never had a relationship but he knew she liked him but he mainly wanted to support her music so that's why she facebooked him Yayo? Because obviously You're Gonna Love Me is partially about him, "Jim, I'mma dedicate this whole album to you/You told me to get my way, that's exactly what I'm gonna do" - he told her to do her own thing and maybe Yayo was the start of the AKA era, so she sent it to him because she wanted to show him that he had a positive effect on her career.
     
     
    I still think Radio is about Jimmy though, when she talked about it she was also talking about people "coming out of the woodworks", so maybe what she meant with him coming back was that he changed his mind, which brings me to Gods & Monsters. She's obviously written a lot of songs about their imaginary relationship and now he's interested in her because life imitates art. It also fit with her stalking admiring him from afar, "a groupie incognito posing as a real singer" and "If I get a little prettier, can I be your baby?". She literally made herself prettier (lips and so on).

    I was thinking about what tied the whole trilogy together and when TV in Black & White leaked the line "troubles come in threes" really stood out to me. Maybe the trilogy is about the main troubles of her life (weaved in with honouring love lost, etc): BTD is about addiction and death; BJ is about K going to prison; VG is about her having to let go of her career ambitions because things weren't going anywhere and "relaxing into a more simple life".

    Before Sirens leaked I thought For K Part 2 was about David Kahne, as someone stated previously.
     
    In that facebook-interview (the one where she says "I just thought it was so sad that like, I don’t know, God had found someone so perfect for me and that we really couldn’t be together") she talks about the person she had a relationship with that influenced BTD and she says "we were birds of a feather"
     
    In a Lizzy Grant interview she says
    "My producer, David Kahne, and me got along very well because he knew that I lived in my songs, and so he just tried to make them better. He asked me in a letter what I wanted the record to sound like, and I said, “I want it to sound famous, like a sad party.” He thought that was a wonderful idea, and we began working the next day. I like to think we’re birds of a feather."
     
    It's probably nothing, she's just using the phrase to describe different people, but I did used to think that FKP2 was about their (professional) relationship, "Use that voice, sing that song , And tell me to come on, to come on, come on" but this doesn't really fit with For K (or anything else for that matter), still, it might interest some.
     
     
     
    I used to think K was Elvis. She's said that she was obsessed with him as a teenager, K is for King, Elvis was The King.
    Elvis' body guards were called the Memphis Mafia - gangsters (not literally), and in Gangsta Boy she sings "high school, loved you from the beginning". She's also said that when she saw Elvis for the first time she was blown away by his beauty. In Lucky Ones she sings "everybody told me love was blind, then I saw your face and you blew my mind".
    In
    interview (or it might be in part 2) the interviewer asks her if Million Dollar Man is about Elvis, and she says "maybe" and smiles. "One for the money, two for the show" is also a lyric in Blue Suede Shoes. When I googled it I found that the expression "one for the money..." is one used in horse racing, as in Off to the Races.And obviously Elvis fits the description in American "tall, tan/skin so golden brown" although it doesn't really makes sense that American would be about him since she namedrops him. Also, Elvis is from Mississippi (Raise Me Up). I thought that maybe, since a lot of people think she writes each song about more than one person, that she uses Elvis as a base-character and then writes autobiographically around that base... if that makes sense.
     
     
    I'm sure Y&B is about Jimmy Gnecco (also Radio and Bel Air)
     
     
     
     
    I just read this on wikipedia: "In Nabokov's 'Lolita', the name is used in reference to Mr Clare Quilty, the man who takes Lolita from Humbert. Carmen and Clare being both male and female names, Lolita uses them to deceive Humbert into thinking he is a woman and no threat."
    I knew there was a song in Lolita called Carmen
     
     
    and so I assumed that's where she got the name from. I'm not sure if it's relevant or not (God, imagine if every song she's ever written is just fan fiction about Lolita) but thought I'd share.
     
     
     
    And this has been bothering me for a while, in the album booklet it says "Thank you to my devoted managers Ben Mawson and Ed Millett. And to A.G."
    Who is A.G.?

    Has the question on who Ray is been answered yet? 'Cause this is Ray Neu:
     

     
    It was mentioned way back in the Lizzy Grant Misc photos thread.

    Who Radio is about haunts me 
    I do think it's about Jimmy though, in Radio she sings "how do you like me now?" a line she also used in Get Drunk, and in GD she sings "I am sleeping with your best friend" and I loosely remember reading something about there being a triangle drama between Lana, Jimmy and some other dude. (Arthur?)
     
    It bothers me that in the HDB demo she sings "Ruby Tuesday's or Citco, I loved you then" and in Every Man Gets His Wish she sings "He found me waitressing at Ruby Tuesdays" and references a Chevy/Chevrolet in both but in This Is What Makes Us Girls she sings "Teachers said we'd never make it out alive" and back in EMGHS "You said I'd never make out outta here alive"
     
    It's like she's doing it on purpose to confuse us

    It's like a Hollywood movie
    The black and white waves sparkling truly
    My man likes to watch me while I watch TV
    while he's t-t-touching me
     
    I remember vintage green wall paper
    Your criminal arms, I couldn't feel safer
    King Creole, daddy, chasing that paper, I l-l-love you
     
    Baby you'll never be old in my eyes
    With your golden grill true love never dies
    We're forever young in Paradise, as long as you got the Chevrolet I will ride
     
    Baby you know my mama never had much money
    but I plan on using this face to pay, honey
     
    give me give me give me give
    You're so funny
    Love you 'til I die
     
    Who's living life like it's the Belvedere?
    Swinging all night on the crystal chandelier
    Bring that Velvet Elvis over here
    Come on, baby you never know 'til you try
    Baby you never live 'til you die
    Baby you never love 'til you're mine, you're mine, you're mine, you're mine

    You aren't coming back and I know that now
    so I let the wind hit me in my face
     
    Every man gets his wish,
    Every man gets his wish
     
    Your red hawaiian shirt and your hair jet black
    Hangin' round with your friends by the track
    Baby, you can't come back from being that bad
    Just to sit at home, pledge allegiance to the flag

    You told me this, now you're gone

    You told me this, where is mine?
    Every man gets his wish,

    You told me this, were you lying?
     
    And the Velvet Elvis and the rosaries
    And your white Corvette under willow trees
    You the one for me, my one true king

    You told me this, now you're gone

    Maybe Carmen too? It's got similarities to Humbert's Wanted poem and that sort of explains the french part

    I hope it's not literal because wearing grills is tacky 
     
    But lanalysis wise it sort of makes "sense", golden grills is a K-thing, so when she wore one gold/diamond tooth it was honoring K just like how the two tears were in solidarity of the double homicide. (in my mind at least)

    Lemme explain the two fingers to the sky bit. It is, as you said, a way of showing her love of God. She puts her fingers up when singing "is it by mistake or design" - design obviously referring to God. Catholics cross themselves (when they sign a cross on their chest; it's a type of prayer) and some of them either use two fingers upwards (like Lana) or the first three fingers brought to a point (symbolizing the Trinity). When you do this prayer you say "In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" moving your hand to your forehead (symbolizing the Father), your stomach (the Son), your left shoulder (the Holy) and finally your right shoulder (Spirit). Then you put your hands together and say Amen.
     
    So basically, when she has her hand upwards she is signing "the Father" and while she does it singing "design" she's basically saying "the design of our Father".
     
     
    She also does this sign when singing Without You live at the "I even think I found God"-part.

    tbh, I think this song is in poor taste. Even if it was written out of jealousy and only for Lana to hear, it's just a mean, spiteful song. "You’re looking like a man, you’re talking like a baby///Stefani, you suck, I know you’re selling twenty million, Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg". She was what, 23-24 years old when she wrote this? She sounds like a bratty 14-year old. I wonder if she has any regrets about writing this

    remember when Ride came out and on pretty much every lyric site it said "I look up to hear myself saying, baby, too much strive, I just ride"  
     
     
    in diet mountain dew I was convinced she was singing "baby stopping at ~some posh french name~ (something like shumura l'evin), baring his work in new york, heaven" and I had this image of her and her painter-boyfriend driving to an art exhibition were he was showing his paintings
     
    which fit with what I misheard in Blue Jeans which was "love you more, than those pictures before" because she was like "I don't love you because you're an artist, I love you because you're you~". For such a long time I thought all her songs was about a boyfriend who was a failed painter ("well shit at least you tried") who turned to selling drugs
