Time again for Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week! Last week I thought Gaga looked pretty and Lindsay was trying too hard. Gavin Rossdale “won” my worst look.

Lana Del Rey, despite plans to step out of the spotlight, has been a busy little slurry-voiced bee. Her short film, Tropico, premiered. It’s a 27 minute short film and contains appearances by dead celebs John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, and Elvis Presley. (Ms. Del Rey once sang, “Elvis is my daddy, Marilyn’s my mother.”) You can watch it here:
She also announced the title of her next album. And that title is Ultra-Violence, a borrowed term from A Clockwork Orange. Huffington Post says we can expect it, “in the coming months.”

Lorde better get ready for another fight with a female singer, since she’s (sort of) dissing Nicki Minaj and Lana Del Rey (and Drake, too!) for their music. Lorde is known for the hit “Royals”, a song that starts with “I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh…” and she revealed what inspired her song about songs about opulence. From Interview magazine via HipHollywood:
Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey. They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn’t relate to me—or anyone that I knew. I began thinking, ‘How are we listening to this? It’s completely irrelevant.’
Dude, Lana Del Rey sings about blue jeans and video games, so I don’t know what the hell Lorde is thinking. But I agree with her other points. I wonder if Minaj will miss the point and take this personally and respond like she’s dealing with Mariah again.
I’m mostly team Lorde, but she had no ground to throw Lana under the bus with Nicki and Drake, especially since Ms. Del Rey praised Lorde saying she wished her album, Born To Die was as good as Lorde’s Pure Heroin. Personally, I think Lana’s is miles better, though Lorde’s is great. I think Lorde is crazy-talented. And fine, yes, I love Lana. The End.

Lana Del Rey‘s got a short film titled Tropico coming out, and it may be her last project for a while. I know I’m sad-facing, probably one of the few here. That’s okay. A teaser was just released and it’s pretty funny. I’m hoping it’s meant to be funny. How could it not be? Ms. Del Rey is praying, “Dear John, forgive us for our sins” and then we cut to someone dressed as John Wayne:

You know how Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian at that baseball field or whatever and used a Lana Del Rey song as part of his great production? Well, there have now been tabloid reports that Kanye wanted Lana to perform the song live but that she said no thanks. I could see why that would maybe be the case, but apparently it’s just not true!
“I would never deny his request. That’s not true.”
A woman of few words, that Lana Del Rey! Here’s a video of it in case you really needed to see it:
What do you think – did Lana actually refuse? Was she never asked? I’m going towards the latter on this one.
