    That's why I'm gonna wait. Also wanna listen to it before I buy it. Was too disappointed of Midnights. And seeing all versions of Midnights and 1989 everywhere makes me think most editions will be available still at release date. And since it's a new release, they might even put up signed-art-card-editions again shortly before release date. 
     
    Besides I am boycotting this "only available for 3 days" - sales strategy. 
     
    We haven't got even a single yet to tell something about the album style, right?

    My god.
     
    There is a culture of FOMO in the Taylor fandom that she actively and purposefully encourages in her messaging and it's always, always, always packaged in a way that makes the die hard fans think it's not a trick. And for the most part, it's actually tricks that give them something -- like having a secret song unique to each show of a tour. This is great and special for fans at each show, but it also encourages fans to seek out content online for EVERY show to see EVERY new moment - boosting her social media metrics. It also encourages fans-of-means to go to multiple shows and to spend thousands of dollars doing so. Part of what she achieves by all the secret messaging hinting at what's next doubles down on the FOMO culture - you have to stay ever-present in the Taylorsphere to catch them all, and you have to post about it online and discuss it with each other. Yes, it's lovely that it creates a community, but it creates superfandom and tricks people into feeling like they need to purchase every vinyl and every deluxe edition in order to qualify as a superfan.

    No one else does this. I completely understand how it's fun and exciting for the fans. But call a spade a spade, a capitalist a capitalist, and a woman seeking domination a woman seeking domination. This is absurd.

    Another alternate variant just announced with bonus track “The Albatross”
    So far I like this cover the best actually, I can’t describe it, there’s just a certain feeling about it I resonate with somehow x

    not again... she'll probably announce another variant at the singapore shows too then announce just before release week all the "exclusive" variants are available at retail stores worldwide

    Fully agree with the critics. These short distance flights can hardly be justified. 
     
    (But, btw: Someone should also do an insta account to report about the CO2 impact of 10 vinyl variants sold in 10 different shops 😎 I think artists (incl. Lana) should think about how necessary this is, too.)

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. The woman is on the cusp of birthing her TENTH album in a little over a decade. Another lil' reminder: almost all her albums are well-received critically, some even lauded retroactively (like Born to Die). The woman DOESN'T owe us a smooth anything. She can drop it whenever the hell she wants, given how productive she is.
     
    Also, Beyonce's new album is similarly appearing out of nowhere. Dua Lipa has dropped two singles, and there's still no news on the album name, or release date. 
     
    So, just chill, an count your blessings. We have an album name, the genre, the tentative release date, and even some of the songs. So, we good. Mother is feeding us well and keeping us warm. Shush.

    friendly reminder that Lana del rey is a human being and she didn't sign a contract to be our servant and provide us with on demand entertainment when we see fit.

    I really don't know what to feel about this. Like yeah the Taylor climate terrorist memes are funny, but at the same time it's also absurd to think someone of her caliber of fame can just ride commercial flights without any ruckus. I feel like the best way to like make this work is to like ask for a hefty fee for private jet users which can then be used for environmental purposes. Like I'm not the biggest fan of Taylor but it's absolutely absurd how people disregard her safety and privacy concerns (which are all valid imo). This is a grey area issue imo and I feel like people don't really acknowledge that given how polarizing Taylor is.

    Look I understand her having and using a private jet
    I'm not against it per se because I can imagine the spectacle if she flew commercially BUT this shit should be regulated
    No private flights under a certain distance unless you have a good reason or it's an emergency
    Maybe an overall limit on miles per week or something
    Billionaires can't be trusted to give a fuck so we need rules

    She’s so obsessed with micromanaging every aspect of her public perception that I genuinely expected her to change her ways.

    For those that have not actually looked at her flight patterns. Things like this are a regular occurrence.

    it's kinda weird how people go out of their way to defend a 34 year old woman's behavior  nothing about what he's doing is an invasion of privacy because as stated, it's public info. just another example of taylor/her team being upset the narrative can't be easily controlled. oh, and the whole 'she lends her jet out to other people' excuse does not make her look any better? lmao. pearl clutching bc some college student is calling out her jet plane usage is as embarrassing as taylor sending out her lawyer to threaten them. there really is nothing stopping her from using a jet this frequently, she just doesn't care

    Same here. Lemonade is my favorite album by her and partly it felt a bit country, which I loved. Got big hopes for this, just hope it won't be too much dance/pop style all together... 
     
    PS: I still think she's exaggerating with all this half nudity and references to sexuality in her visuals, it is constantly getting on my nerves since the music video for partition. 
     
    @Veinsineon my first thought listening was Kylie's Golden, too. 😁 Looks like she was kind of a pioneer 2016 again, before everyone else went country fusion.

    They basically have done no promo since releasing React, so I guess they got back together as a cash grab and since it flopped (And then covid happened), they decided that separating was the best. Especially since they seem to hate each other

    She sounds amazing, I’m kinda into this honestly. I haven’t had much interest since Lemonade so this is nice. 
  22. Ultra Violet liked a post in a topic by Olympia in what is a Lana concept/ idea that you can write a 50 page single spaced 12 pt. MLA paper about?   
    That was my first thought, too. I found it very interesting how so-called feminists said how she should behave to support their idea of feminism, which was actually just replacing one supposed prison guard (men) by another one (so-called feminists), lol. 
     
    I also often think about how strong she is compared to many other artists, although AND because she allows herself to be weak and talks about it. There are so many artists saying all the time how strong they are and sending out messages about how to become as strong as them - and then you look at their insta feed and can easily spot all the self-esteem trouble they actually deal with. Lana is just herself and looks like she wants, more kilos than before or not, without making a big fuzz about it. She's a much better role model than all those "be yourself" shouting artists who never upload pics without filter and get their photo shoots retouched like crazy.
