I think it's either her when she was younger, or it's something really sketchy that I'm not elaborating upon unless the whole thing comes out and reinforces my crackheaded theory.

 

:smile3:

 

I just listened to this again and wow. I'm so in love with this. I really feel so much love and peace listening to it.

 

But I still don't know, who is the Violet she references to?

I believe it was her great grandmother! It says she was the mother of Robert England Grant, whose son is Robert England JR, aka Lana's dad!

Upon reading Robert England Grant's obituary (https://www.geni.com/people/Robert-Grant/6000000033603540322)

"Bob is survived by

his wife, Cynthia,

his sons

Robert and his wife, Pat;

David; and

Jim; all of Lake Placid.

His great joys also included his grandchildren:

Elizabeth,

Caroline,

Charlie, and

David and his wife Marya"

 

It wouldn't be too far fetched to assume this is the Violet Lana is referring to, as she said in the video she posted in December announcing VBBOTG as a spoken word album that she was connecting to her own family lineage! :)

the only “Violet” I can think of who fits in with Sylvia Plath, Marilyn Monroe, and Princess Diana (?) is “Dion Fortune”—who’s real name was Violet. She was an occultist and philosopher. 

 

But I’m guessing this is a different Violet than in the other poem. Maybe toddler Violet is Lana’s inner child, or maybe Violet happens to be her baby name of choice and wanted to write a poem about her unborn child? 


Feeling so Gatsby for that whole year.

I'm almost certain it's her great-grandmother! I found this shortly after she posted the poem :):

Lol have to disagree since she states “All of my kind women who came before me, blonde” but another clue is this person is blonde!

Interesting, but why are all the other women famous and she randomly mentions her great grandmother?

There’s no way of knowing for sure obviously unless Lana herself explains it, but we know Sylvia, Marilyn, and Diana are not just mere famous women to her that she listed - they hold a special place in her heart and I’m sure Lana identifies with their stories in the same way she probably identifies with the stories that have been passed down to her in her family - likely ones about her great-grandmother, Violet. 
 

In the poem, she implies that these 4 blonde women have had tragic endings to their life stories (we know of Sylvia, Marilyn, and Diana, and can assume something about Violet since she’s grouped with them) but that she dyes her hair black, perhaps to embrace the darkness that got the best of them - whatever form that darkness took - and live with the lightness that they never had in honour of them, maybe. It’s quite a layered poem and that’s my inference, at least!

I just don’t know if it’s her grandmother, doesn’t make sense to me. The other 3 women she’s never met and were famous, not contesting they weren’t special to her. They all died in their 30s and then Lana mentions she’s 34. Her grandmother died at 71. I just don’t see the connection.
