    Would love to know what you guys think of Lana Del Rey. Lately, I seem to find myself playing her music constantly. I'd like to learn more about her.

    I think she has an amazing voice, and writes awesome, powerful....meaningful lyrics. The voice is hauntingly beautiful.

    I've never understood what all the controversy was over regarding her Saturday Night Live performance.

    I've also read that her song on the latest CD- "Fucked my way up to the top" was a slam on Lorde, who chastised her for not being a good image for young girls. Read that Lana was raised with a lot of money, but also read that she was a raging alchoholic at age fourteen, and was kicked out of school.......moved in with her Grandfather, and he taught her to sing and play piano.

    She changed her name to Lana Del Rey to model Lana Turner, her idol.

    Favorite song right now- YeYo, which I recently learned is slang for coke. "I like the snake on your tattoo, I like the ivy, and the ink blue..."

    I'm so in love with her tbh.

    There was "controversy" bc she was so nervous and it reflected that. But she is also 1 out of 2 artists (I think) to perform on snl before their debut album was even released.

    Yeah she had some issues with alcohol but hopefully she's taken care of it. I want her to be around forever.

    She used her real name, Elizabeth Grant, to perform at first. Then went to Lizzy Grant, then May Taylor or Jailer, then started using Lana Del Rey.

    I think you mean Yayo.

    The first song I heard by her was Video Games and I was in awe cause she was nothing like I'd ever heard. Yeah artists usually had a slow song on their album but they would usually release a upbeat song with a flashy video. But I knew the second I saw that video that she was different.

    My favorite song? That's tough cause I honestly love them all, but I'd probably say Born To Die.

    i think she is pretentious crap, her only good album was born to die which I loved and thought she is high class, but as she has proven, she is boring one trick pretentious pony with repetitive lyrics and quite basic and vulgar

    Yeah I love her. She has become one of my favourite singers. I even bought her first album twice because I bought it when it was first out, then bought it again when it was re-released in the 'Paradise' edition and I've never done that with any other singer!

    My favourite track from the new album is 'Freak'.
