I think there is a tendency to equate complexity with masterful writing, and simplicity with amateurism but that is a fallacy. Simplicity can be powerful, and overwriting can obscure the soul of a work. I see a lot of the criticism of IYLDWM as falling into this trap. Is the chorus simple ? Yes. But, it is because that is all the song needs to say. Padding is bad writing. The verses paint a vivid picture and the chorus adds the necessary emotional context to understand the picture. Using a lot of big words does not make meaning profound. If you are discussing the profound it will bleed through the words whether your style is simple or complex, and Lana, well is vast and contains multitudes.

And that applies to Beautiful, too :sass:

“I’ve been running on stardust alone for so long” and “I’ve been running on stardrip IVs for so long” have to be some of my favorite lines from Lana ever. 
 

They’re just so unique, visual, and dreamy. :ohno:

i feel like i’m the only lipster who actually likes LFL. i became a stan then so it’s sentimental to me but i played BTD and LFL the most in 2017 and 2018 so they also hold nostalgic value. 

you're not alone :kiss3:

You are not Lust For Life is an solid record It’s better than COCC or BB any day.  With songs like 13 Beaches, Heroin and Get Free alone make it a great record.  It has so much more variety and intrigue then BB also.  It get’s unnecessary hate by this fanbase. 


Arches are Illusions solid at first glance

The way we would see her here in france 3 times and now she just gone :sadcore:

Then, she'll probably tour again in 2 years but only perform in the same US cities, as always :agree:
