    people who haven’t been through certain hardships or even just have an open mind to all sorts of artists expressions will simply never get it lol. They lack the compassion and understanding to realize art like that is just as worthy of existing as songs and about sunshine and rainbows. They find the song appalling (which, in a way, they should) but misplace their outrage to the artist and the song, instead of the message behind it. 
     
    They’re mad at Lana for making a song about abuse when they need to be mad at abuse.

    I have never had a problem with the lyrics of “Ultraviolence” (the song). I’ve always believed true art expresses the ugly and fucked up in a beautiful way so that we can understand the mindset of the individuals under less-than-desirable circumstances.

    a fandom opinion more than a lana opinion, but i wish people would understand that when some fans talk about wanting a trap or hiphop sound from lana we don't mean an album full of In My Feelings or Summer Bummers.... we mean a trap or hiphop influence mixed with lana's trademark sound 
     
    altho Summer Bummer is one of my fav lana songs so sure go ahead and give me an album's worth if you feel like it bestie

    "maybe my contribution could be as small as hoping
    that words could turn to birds and birds would send my thoughts your way"

    I love the amount of songs she gives us but I'm starting to tell myself that Lana should put the brakes on her projects because there is a pretty considerable loss of interest.
    She's a person who certainly has thousands of projects in her head and she has trouble channeling it all, it goes all over the place and we don't really understand anymore...
    She's an artist that I love and I don't mind having as many songs from her as possible but since these last 2 projects she's been on the decline, I think she should take a break just to think about everything.
     
    I think her entourage influences a lot on her way of perceiving things and doing her albums, her friends are children of rich people in LA and you can feel this unnecessary lust in her songs, it's not luxurious like Ultraviolence where the universe was super interesting and deep. She needs to hang out with people who I think have a real identity, daring musicians, not with those little b*tches who seem to hang out with Lana because she's popular.
     
    I don't remember anything about her last album apart from Tulsa and Yosemite, it's not for lack of trying.
    I would like her to come back to her deep voice and come back to the fundamentals, heavy sounds with guitars if possible or more hip hop. I overdose on her whisperings and minimalist albums.

    Lana is extremely smart and people should stop underestimating her intelligence. She sometimes take dumb decisions, but who haven't?

    I am really sick of her namedropping people in her songs, especially after today
    It's okay to do in moderation but enough is enough
    I get that it's hEr LiFe but Jesus, Chuck and Jen and Nikki and Charlie and Joni and Joan and whoever else do not need to be mentioned in every song ever
    Less is more. She does it so much that it is not lyrically impactful at all because it's just a mish-mash of names
    There's a reason the CD booklet usually has a page for acknowledgements and she should use it

    Bartender is a great song.

    Wildflower Wildfire was my immediate favorite of the three. Blue Banisters had somewhat better lyrics, but it had to grow on me. I’m so shocked Text Book got so much love from people.  The BLM lyric makes me cringe so hard. I LOVE switch-ups in songs, which is why West Coast was truly an amazing experience the first time I heard it and still remains to me one of her best songs. But in Text Book? It sounds like a mess. I get offended every time someone compares it to West Coast or even claims it’s the best of the three... NOPE. Absolutely not. I don’t like the production. I just don’t like the song at all. I wish it was never released~ and that is TRULY my most unpopular opinion.

    This song is severely underrated

    Rick Nowels was the GOAT. I miss him on Lana's production.

    I feel like Freak is a bit underrated on this website. It's a banger and I absolutely love the instrumental.

    I hate when people say that only now Lana is showing herself and at the begging of her career she displayed the image that her record company wanted. They're practically stating what the media said about her when she debuted.
     
    And I do believe that she has a persona, everybody has one. She changed because she got older and have other views, was exposed to different things, acquired other tastes, have new friends... Not because her persona is fading

    hoping this doesn't come across harsh and/or selfish but....
     
    stage fright, slightly uncomfortable, deer in the headlights, worried about how she sounds and performs Lana >>>> literally not giving a fuck, doing the bare minimum, forgetting she's even on stage Lana
     
    i don't wish anxiety on her whatsoever so this isn't 100% serious of course, but i miss when she actually cared about her performances  even if it occasionally made her voice a little shaky it was still captivating to watch!

    Of course Annie got uncomfortable as it went on, but people are acting like Lana turned to politics completely unprompted while Annie tried to discuss the music. Asking about 2020 is a loaded question, of course she's going to get into politics. She just didn't do it in as streamlined and concise of a manner as people would have liked, but her points were totally valid and she has every right to express them.
     
    Complex is too major of a publication for total trash clickbait headlines like that, especially given the long relationship they have with Lana. It was completely disrespectful and tasteless.

    I figured the Mountain Dew was about that guy (can't remember his name) with longer hair on his myspace? Iirc he had a direct image of Diet Mountain Dew & even a picture of fetuses and how he wanted to name them Lana and Ray, which was also the man that potentially inspired Wayamaya?
     
    Also Afraid is a song (to me) about escaping physical abuse, could she have 'extremified' the type of abuse and written along the same scenario you think? Like she had to leave because of his relapse and she was possibly afraid of his potential abuse or how much he'd wither? 
     
    Lucky Ones too? holy shit
     
     
     
    This isn't related to the quotes but I'm both amazed, terrified, and heartbroken reading all of this. Not because it's such a death ridden life but because it's so interesting reading all of this down to the specific wire. Even in it's early days literally nothing is ever NOT found on the internet, think about celebrities living similar lives to Lana's ten years ago but right now, everything they'll ever fucking do will be even more findable than these- and all these examples are from an internet era in which everything was harder to use. 
     
    It's also insane just seeing how much we know about one persons life- we have threads about her as Lizzy even fucking babysitting in photos, a thread about finding her boyfriend that supposedly murdered people and was sent for a death pentalty (the fact people have even found his NAME is scary.)- stuff so secret and private and yet here we are, hundreds of fans she doesn't know finding out everything about her- even information she herself probably had forgotten. It's also such a goddamn telling tale and fantasy, her life before fame is literally a plotline that would've been written as a book years ago and would've become a tragic literary american classic, I hope when she's older she can remember all of these things and produce a fully transparent auto biography, because her life is SUCH a work of art.
     
    Every little reference just makes her entire discography that much richer and more telling, the simplest titles inspired some of her best work, i love her so, so much- she's the only person that deserves the entire world in my opinion
