Obsession | Lana Del Rey
Ever since an old high school friend (Alexis) posted a video, I've been hooked on miss Lana Del Rey. Whether you know her from her former Lizzy Grant days or are just listening to her songs for the first time today, it's hard to ignore her "Gangster Nancy Sinatra" ways, as she claims. She's oozing with old Hollywood glamour and setting some 60's styled ballads mixed with modern pop as the new sound in the music industry.
With her self-made videos for 'Video Games', 'Diet Mountain Dew' and 'Blue Jeans', she's set herself as a creative soul. She landed the cover of British Vogue (among many others) and recently won a Brit Award for International Breakthrough Artist (and no she's not the same like Adele, they're two completely different genres). Her record, "Born to Die" went #1 in 11 countries in its release and Mulberry even named a new bag after her (the "Del Rey")! I don't care if her lips are fake or real or if she doesn't hit every note in her live performances...there's no one quite like her and I love her for it.
I even bought her physical CD to support her, that's how obsessed I am with her. I love "Radio", "National Anthem", "Dark Paradise", "Off To the Races"...who am I kidding, I love anything by her. She can do no wrong in my eyes! Have you seen her sick style?! PS: Check out her video for 'Born to Die' if you want some seriously gorgeous cinematography!
