Lana performed yesterday night at the ‘Jonathan Ross Show’ in London. I uploaded many screencaptures into our gallery and above you can watch a video with a better quality than the one we had before. Enjoy!
Now that we’re done with reflecting on 2011, it’s time to start projecting into 2012. With the reign of Adele perhaps taking a brief hiatus, and buzz building around several newcomers, some legendary reunions and highly anticipated sophomore albums, 2012 is already shaping up to be a year filled with some pretty amazing music. We’ve put together a list of 20 of our most anticipated albums for 2012 — what are you looking forward to in 2012?
Lana Del Rey – Born To Die (Expected Release Date: 01/27): Possibly the most hyped artist of 2011, we’re excited for the record to finally come out so we can stop judging the hype and start judging the material! She landed a highly coveted spot as the musical guest on the January 14th episode of Saturday Night Live, so expect the clamor to grow.
Some fans asked us how many tattoos Lana has and I tried to find some pictures where you can see them better. Lana has 3 tattoos as far as I know: 2 on her left hand and one on her right. But it’s very mysterious that the tattoo on the right hand disappears sometimes. xD And unfortunately I don’t know yet what the right-hand tattoo says.
Edit: “The tattoo on her right hand says “Life is beautiful”. Also it looks like it’s in the same handwriting as the paradise tattoo.” – Thanks to Jane for this information!!
We found a little video of Lana Del Rey performing Video Games at Dior’s SS12 Fashion Show in Beijing, China during last month, the quality isn’t good. If you want to see pictures of this event, click here.
A fragile star with a mysterious dark past, attempting to gain legitimacy in a world that doesn’t want to take her seriously. Sounds familiar, eh? Yes, Lana Del Rey has made the link between her re-tooled Americana and Hollywood’s most mystifying and tragic icons, Marilyn Monroe.
It begins with a sample of the actress singing The Star-Spangled Banner before we’re swept into a newsreader announcing her death, intermingled with JFK squawking about the actress singing Happy Birthday for him. This is a 20th pop culture re-told, Lana style.
That her trail of broken hearts has lead her to MM is logical (from the Tupac featuring ‘Video Games’ video to ‘Off To The Races’ hints of a Mickey and Mallory from Badlands-type bad romance, one of her themes has been the doomed and glamorous) but that she manages to re-imagine the tale in her terms is not.
