Imagine a tour named “Fucking Blue Chemtrails Worldwide Tour” :oprah:

just imagine :oprah:

I want her back on tour :trisha: and I want it now :crying2:

I'm sorry to disappoint, but in the live chat she said:

I'm not doing a tour, I'm writing mostly. I'm doing some other things that hopefully in time won't be seen as absolutely mad.

Still shaken by the hate crime of not including the strings on the release of Beautiful :crying4:


Stick with the winners // Go where it’s warm // Don’t go to the hardware store for bread // Don’t date mean people // Run at the sign of anyone who ever yells at you or gets mad at you // Try and have nice friends.

I think Dealer was the most streamed on Spotify out of the non singles when I looked earlier

No, it’s IYLDWM


I'll do it for the right reasons

Who is dealer about? Discuss :oprah3:

 

 

:creep3:

I assumed it was about her mother during adolescence accidentally funding Lanas drug habits at one point- 

I honestly can’t imagine Miles using “Ether” in conversation.

Miles is Lana. 
 

Lana is singing her moms part. 
 

she said her mom yelled a lot.

#1. Norman fucking Rockwell

#2. Born to Die

#3. Ultraviolence

#4. Blue Banisters

#5. Chemtrails over the Country Club

#6. Lust for Life 

#7. AKA

#8. Honeymoon

 

Honeymoon dead last? No ma'am. Blue Banisters already at #4 is a good sign for the album's longevity I suppose.

Wow, this actually blew my mind and makes so much sense! The only line I can't link to that interpretation is " Please don't try my father either. he ain't been home for years"

Well, IYLDWM was added to major playlists & lanz said it might get a video so it seems that, in her and her teams mind, it’s a single

i’m still assuming dealers about g-eazy, (firstly bc he’s a POS) but second because the dad thing would make sense - he and his mom left his dad when he was super young

i still havent done a proper write up about this album yet, but i did have some quick thpughts so far on violets for roses. i do think it's about both a man and the public trying to change her, but one line that stood out for me was the "you tried to trade in my new truck for horses" which made me think of the chemtrails photoshoot. remember she posted that picture of herself on top of her truck but the only official picture we got of her in that outfit was the one with the horse. it made me wonder if maybe it was her managers who were trying to change her? maybe she wanted that as the album cover and they were like "no lets do it with horses, its classier" or something and maybe the official album cover was her rebelling like "whatever i'm not using that one either." but then that could just be a coincidence with the truck and horses.

 

She's saying "you tried to trade in my new truck for Rollses" like Rolls Royces. She wants the simple life with a truck, and he wants her to live up the luxurious lifestyle that she's not interested in. I do think the message behind the song can apply to both a man and the public though, but I also think Beautiful takes a similar theme and applies it more explicitly to the public/fans who try to tell her what her art should be.

It’s funny the stark contrast between COCC and BB release in Lanaboards and I guess the fandom in general.

 

Almost everyone for the most part loves Blue Banisters, the concept, songs, themes.

 

COCC was different.. everyone was nitpicking at something different.

 

Lana really did THAT with Blue Banisters, a TOP 3 album in her discography. Exquisite


By the way, thanks for that, on the way, I'll pray for ya
But you'll need a miracle
