Beach House might be up your alley if and when you're looking for similar artists.
Oddly enough, Lana and I have history lol.
Not Lana's music, Lana. Bless her heart.
OK, bro. Don't be coy. You can't drop a bomb like that & not elaborate a little bit.
I mean you're talking to a guy that's listening to NORMAN FUCKING ROCKWELL on repeat right now at 4:21 in the morning. So, do me a solid & fill me in.
She and I have been known to get into an online spat from time to time. There's no love lost there. I've been pretty mean to her in the past, I feel bad about it.
Really? Where? On her website or her Twitter? You're still being too cryptic, bro.
What did you two get into it about? Her music?
I guess I've been cryptic bc after I made the initial post I started feeling bad about what I said to her.
I saw her in a spat with another person on Twitter and didn't like the way she came at her. I had no idea who Lana was at that point and thought she was some random valley girl from Cali. I started defending the other poster, and Lana started going in on me and was like, "Like I'm going to care what some nobody says, I'm famous." So I looked her up and realized she was an up and coming pop star (this was around 2011), and went back and said, "You're not very famous, i had to Google you to find out who you even are." This made her very mad, and she started going in on me, like, "Who are you? Some nobody from nowhere that matters. I've got money and fame. You've got nothing." She said this among other nasty things. I told her that as someone who follows pop culture and music very closely and had no idea 10 mins before that she even existed that if she thinks she's famous she should probably kill herself bc she's delusional. Then she was like, "Leave me alone." I kept going and she was like, "You win, leave me alone."
Years later I heard about an interview where she said, "I wish I could die young and be a music legend like Kurt Cobain," and I went back to her Twitter and told her who I was and that I'm sorry for saying she should kill herself and to live a little while.
She blocked me. I've really felt bad ever since.
You bastard. How dare you upset my favorite current recording artist like that!
Nah, that's not so bad. Hey, you apologized.
I've come a long ways since those days. I value human life so much anymore that I'd never say something like that to anyone.
Tbh, I've grown fond of her music myself. She's not half bad.
That's putting it mildly, bro.
And, yeah. We all do shit that we later regret. Yours was but a minor infraction in the greater scheme of things. So, no worries.
Cheers bud. You might appreciate this, to a point.
So far my favorite albums are BORN TO DIE ( the PARADISE edition ) & NORMAN FUCKING ROCKWELL. They're both so awesome that I haven't been able to get to her others yet because I keep listening to those two. I want to savor her work slowly.
Fuck that bitch, what a stupid cunt.
"I'm famous, you're nothing."
What an idiot
Got put onto Lana Del Rey in 2012. Found her extremely attractive, voice is haunting, and I like her vibes. She's cool in my book.
Beach House doesn't have a lot of variance in their music, but when they're on they're on. They've made some great records over the last decade.
Canas music isn’t bad, but seeing her live was kind of boring. Maybe I was just on too much molly.
Where & when did you see her?
I'm not much into the concert scene anymore but I'd definitely go see her live.
If you like Lana Del Rey @sweetviolenturg you should check out the underrated and highly talented Bat for Lashes if you haven't heard of her. Amazing talent.
OK. I'll check these videos out. Thanks, man.
