Lana Del Rey

She's everywhere and no one seems to be on the fence about her. Its all love or hate. One music bearcub hipster pal put it thusly. He feels she's to much like product, he gets the feeling that she sold out too much.

Its odd though, everything seems perfectly in sync to me, the image and the songs. The wispy warbly pouty little girl voice and the introspective nature of the lyrics. She sounds like somebody who's locked in her bedroom singing her inner thoughts to herself. Wether she locked herself in or someone else did is unclear. And the over botoxed face is like that of a gangster's girlfriend, definatly tragic beauty......

The whole phenonenon and people's responses is fascinating
