Knowing you guys, as well as knowing everyone else who ever comments on the internet ever (I know a lot of people, obviously), you either hate this with everything in you or you’re continuing to root this girl on. There’s really no middle ground when it comes to Lana Del Rey, which is part of why I find her so interesting. If I say anything about her, half of you will comment on how terrible she is and the other half will swoop in to defend her. It’s neat, is what I’m saying.
That’s why I’m eager to hear what you have to say about the fact that Lana went and landed herself on the cover of this here Vogue. It’s a pretty big deal: does she deserve it? Do you still hate her lips? Are you way over her at this point?
While you mull all of this over, I’ll go ahead and give you a few quotes from her interview:
On the meaning behind her album and also being sober: “The album is a tribute to living life on the wild side. I’m sort of kidding because I’m not that wild any more… I used to drink a lot. Too much. I haven’t had a drink for seven years now.”
On her other work: “Homeless outreach, drug and alcohol rehabilitation – that’s been my life for the past five years. My friends are a core group I met through work, and they never really knew I was a singer, because nothing was ever happening. I consider myself coming out of retirement as a singer at this point.”
On the next step: “I don’t think I’ll write another record. What would I say? I feel like everything I wanted to say, I’ve said already.”
Whoa, she’s not planning on writing another record? Then … uh … where do we go from here, Lana? You know I love you, so don’t take this the wrong way, but you can’t really rely on performing from here on out, you know that, right?
