    I dislike that she's not wearing a mask, that none of them are.e

    She looks so nice. Soft pink is so beautiful on her.

    I forget about The Pretty Reckless too because they are so low-key compared to other bands! But awesome, I love them so much. 
     
    I also forget about Jesse Jo Stark until she releases random new songs a few times a year.

    The most common belief of where her name came from:  
    "I wanted a name I could shape the music towards. I was going to Miami quite a lot at the time, speaking a lot of Spanish with my friends from Cuba – Lana Del Rey reminded us of the glamour of the seaside. It sounded gorgeous coming off the tip of the tongue."
    Thought to be inspired by actress Lana Turner and the LA neighbourhood Del Rey OR the Ford Del Rey sedan. 
     
    But, a conflicting interview from early in her career: source
    Was it a conscious decision to be a solo artist, and where does your stage name Lana Del Rey come from / why did you choose to use this instead of your real name?
    “No. I wanted to be a band but the label I was with and the team I had around me absolutely wanted me to be a solo artist. Lana Del Rey came from a series of managers and lawyers over the last 5 years who wanted a name that they thought better fit the sound of the music. My music was always kind of cinematic so they wanted a name that reflected the glamour of the sound.”

    Mine is Elliott Smith. He was amazingly talented but his music is a bit too depressing for me so I go on long periods without listening to him.

    And if it wasn't for X&Y (the song), I would forget about Coldplay too

    It's absolutely my favourite, hands down their best! 
    I love how it sounds sexual and revealing while also dark like it could be a dead body. Sry I just love that.

    It could be. I thought it meant a time when she was happy doing nothing. Nowadays perhaps she can still do nothing but it's not satisfying and entertaining as it used to be. It reminded me of how she explains what Video Games is about- when she was just hanging out with her bf, doing nothing/whatever. Stuff like that, when you miss the little things. Like she can still do the little things now, but it meant everything back then and now she has more to worry about, which could be politics included.

    I agree with this. I remember Kurt Cobain talking in an interview about how he has always had a fascination with dolls, but he did not have the money to buy them and when he could actually afford something to his liking, it was like finding a treasure, and now that he could buy the whole store it doesn't mean as much. I guess once you've found your fame, not only the materialistic stuff it gets you as in Cobain's case, but the little pleasures you were once so fond of may not hold the same importance or effect they used to do. I think this could be why Lana gravitates towards living a simple life and talk about not changing in Dark But Just A Game.

    With “The Greatest” what do y’all think Lana meant when she said “I miss doing nothing the most of all?” For me it felt like she was referring to the political climate in the US. Possibly referring to a time where we didn’t have to worry so much because even if there were problems in the world they weren’t so in our face.
     
    With Chemtrails (esp the title track) I feel like she kinda continues this theme. Living a privileged life amidst the chaos in the world and under the chemtrails (which I figured were symbolic of the chaos in the US again).
     
    Idk. I could be reading too much into lyrics but genius sucks at annotations for Lana songs so.

    This is random but it does relate to Lana-I’ve been thinking about the question for the culture post and applying to myself and it’s actually really helped myself.
     
    As a young Bi male I’ve often had strange experiences where I feel people have fixated on me as an idea and not as a person and the reasoning people have always provided is me being hysterical. Well I now believe this all relates to our societal hate of “feminity” - I never presented myself in a stereotypical “gay” manner, though there is nothing wrong with doing so-at the very least I have some feminine traits and mannerisms. 
     
    With feminity in society it’s never truly praised like masculinity merely sexualised - I must exist as an anomaly like many others as I’ve consistently had behaviour which I felt strangely similar to that of women although the difference is it is constantly reiterated that I am a man that isn’t overtly “gay” and so said behaviour is acceptable.  People feel as though they can constantly critique and comment on my appearance/behaviour both positively and negatively in both a sexual and non sexualised manner(mainly from men) and I cannot object as women do not see this as being reflective of their own experiences of sexism in force which is understandable as there obviously would be clear differences on a gender level. 
     
    It is however frustrating as I have been consistently isolated as an individual and wondered much like Lana(though her post was worded terribly) whether this was my fault and whether I caused it in the vein of me saying no and them seeing yes.
    I now see this represents a much bigger picture and am grateful of her terribly worded but well intentioned essays.

    So their new song “Her Body” has me obsessed. Idk if anyone else here has the same thoughts or maybe I’m late to the party. I’m playing the song and video on repeat. Gabi is amazing, she is iconic, I’m now waiting for her to blow up cause she has that Lana vibe but she knows how to move. She looks and sounds amazing, I just can’t get enough. I’m also loving their little docu series on Netflix. It’s really fun to see 4 random chicks come together and make music while Charli xcx makes cameos. Anyway, I suggest watching this if you want a new Lana-like obsession.

    Mentally prepare yourselves for Mother's day this Sunday when she'll probably post a picture of some carnations and chocolates along with a caption about how Candace really loved them
    Last year it appeared to be the beginning of her descent into QftC and the subsequent cursed clarification video

    What I hate about Lana being called an industry plant is not the concept itself but the idea that “industry plants” are somehow a bad thing...
     
    Like all artists who were unknown to the GP before being famous are industry plants, cause labels seek out new talents and then heavily invest in them hoping for a return 
     
    Britney Spears is the definition of an industry plant, Gaga, Justin Bieber etc... all “industry plants”
     
    But they don’t get called industry plant cause nobody is out to get them
     
    Plus Lana is one of the most successful artists in the world so even if her start was “fake” and “planted” she’s long overcome it

    It’s so dumb bc like yea i don’t like industry plants but video games was an authentic viral hit & she was publicly signed to a major label so it makes no sense at all omg
