  1. LilacNailPolish liked a post in a topic by MargaretThatcher in Speculations on Lana's relationship with her mother   
    I have always wondered about this.
     
    It looks like Lana has a great relationship with her dad. We have seen her with her mom, but it’s been a while. Then she had that Mother’s Day post on IG back in May and it kind of makes you think there are issues.
     
    I believe her parents live in Florida now judging by Rob’s IG posts. Makes sense considering the fact that people are fleeing New York and for good reason.
     
    Lana probably wasn’t an easy child to have around. Mothers freak out when they see their daughters going wild. I get the impression that maybe Patricia was emotionally unavailable or just didn’t understand Lana and her issues. Lana could very well resent her mother. Who knows. Sending Lana to boarding school was probably her mother’s idea. We do know that Lana is a recovering alcoholic and has had mental health issues. I for one know what it’s like to struggle with mental health. As for alcoholism, my father had a drinking problem for many years. When someone is drinking you often want them to just stop. If they don’t then you kind of want them to go away and not do it around you. Hence, in Lana’s case, Lana being sent to boarding school.
     
    I think Lana’s art is how she deals with her personal issues. I remember James Franco saying that Lana lives in her art and I think that’s very much true.
     
    I am curious as to how Chuck and Charlie’s relationship is like with their mother.

    Not to speculate, but vaping can certainly affect one’s singing voice. I wonder if the vaping affected her voice and then maybe she quit vaping after seeing it’s not good for her voice.
     
    Vocal coaches left and right are telling these kids who sing not to vape. They always have to say it now because so many kids now vape.

    So this is the ultimate rebuttal of everything America has become under Trump. We have a President who denies climate change and does not even try to unite the country.
     
    Lana sees America has being fragile. We think of our nation as strong, but we are only one incompetent leader away from being a mess which is certainly the case now.
     
    Lana sees what is really going on. She can speak out about it but if she doesn’t then Trump prevails plus Lana ends up in the psychiatric ward. Kind of reminds me of when Lana called out Kanye for backing Trump. She said that a Trump winning was a loss for the country but active support for him was a loss for the culture.
     
    Lana believes in an America that lives up to its promise.
     
    Then there are the biblical references about Adam and Eve; when we take and take, we destroy the paradise that we can have.
     
    All in all, Lana is challenging Trump’s populism and this culture of greed that has been holding society back.

    Lana is Scottish.
     
    Grant is a popular Scottish surname. I think her ancestors came from somewhere outside of Glasgow.

    “LA, who am I to need you when I have needed so much, asked for so much, but what I have been given, I'm not sure yet
    I may never know that either until I'm dead“
     
    Been thinking about this part. So many people come to LA expecting magic to happen. The thing is you make your own luck in LA. So many people move to LA thinking the city will solve all their personal problems that they bring with them. Lana says that she won’t know her true legacy until she is dead. No artist ever finds out their true legacy because your legacy isn’t written when your alive. So this is very powerful.

    Bruce Springsteen played Lana again on his SiriusXM channel the other day.
     
    Bruce had more praise for Lana. The other day he said the following;
    “That is ‘American,’ by the lovely Lana Del Rey. She’s, uh, name checking some guy from New Jersey in there. I’m not sure who, but … uh, she is from New York, and was raised in Lake Placid. Lake Placid, a fabulous little American town where I have spent many a lovely summer evening with my children and my family over the years. And Lana is simply one of the best songwriters in the country, as we speak. She just creates a world of her own and invites you in. So a big favorite of mine, the lovely Lana Del Rey.“ 
     
    To have this kind of praise from a legend such as Springsteen is a huge honor as I have said before. Woody Guthrie inspired the likes of Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen. Dylan and Springsteen inspired Lana. Lana's folks roots can be experienced in all of her songs whether they feel folky or not. 
    Regardless of what the critics say, Lana having the support of legends in this business such as Bruce Springsteen, Joan Baez, Stevie Nicks etc matters a lot. Lets remember that much like Lana, when Bruce came on the scene he wasn't taken seriously at first. The critics didn't understand him and they wrote him off. Well, we all saw how that worked out. Lana has every reason to believe in herself and to always be reaching for the stars. She is this generation's greatest musical storyteller.

    I’m pretty sure she is bipolar. It runs in my family. I have it. This is part of the reason why I relate to her so much.
     
    My father is bipolar and he was physically abused by his grandmother. He was also abused (corporal punishment) in Catholic school as a kid. He developed a drinking problem at a young age. Lana also developed a drinking problem at a young age.

    I love this series! I have it on DVD. David Lynch is one of the great creative minds of our time.
     
    The third season is perfection. That 8th episode was a masterpiece.... “Gotta Light?”

  13. BeautifulAnywhere liked a post in a topic by MargaretThatcher in Britney Spears   
    We know about her mental health struggles. She had a very public breakdown in 2007-08. That is when the conservatorship was put into place.
     
    What I wonder is about what kinds of medications she has been put on. I do wonder that if her condition is really bad, was she potentially put on meds before 2007? Like maybe around 2003 when she was crying during that 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer? If she was put on something at an early age then the effects of the meds could wear off. I wonder if she was put in lithium back in the early 2000s, it could have worn off around 2007 or she would have certainly been taken off of it when she was pregnant. I do think that it is possible that certain people around her have been playing games with her meds, if indeed she is on meds. People do seem to believe she has been put on something at some point. I think it may have been confirmed publicly at some point, I don't recall.
     
    However, with a conservatorship, Britney would not have any say in regard to medications she is put on. With the elderly and disabled, a conservatorship allows the conservator (with consultation of a doctor) to put them on whatever medication is deemed necessary. 
     
    So I do think career wise, she is allowed to be in control. When it comes to how she runs her own finances, her personal life and her own mind, I don't think she is in control.
     
    But this is just me guessing, so I can't be sure. None of us can really. But it sure makes you wonder.

    And this is why Lana is fed up with the music industry establishment. She innovates, everyone else copies her. Everyone else gets the credit and Lana gets snubbed at the awards losing to people who copied her.
     
    Anyway, Lana’s book comes out in one month! Looking forward to it!

    I was in school too on 9/11. We were able to see lower manhattan from where we were. It was probably the most horrible thing I have witnessed with my eyes.
     
    Lana and I both hail from the same state and we both saw how it affected daily life in the days, weeks and months following the attack. 
     
    It's important that we always remember that day and pay tribute to those we lost, that we give thanks to the first responders, FDNY and NYPD. On that day we saw the worst of humanity, but also the best in humanity because we all came together to help each other out. Most importantly, we were all Americans on that day. 
     
    May God Bless the United States of America!

    Some people just love to be offended and SJW culture actively encourages those tendencies. It's dumb but at the end of the day they are wasting their time being mad over things that really don't matter. There is nothing wrong with anything that she has said in this interview.
