My feelings about Lana Del Rey are: I like “Video Games” a lot, but I think the rest of the album is mediocre — in particular, I think her lyrics are ludicrous — but I don’t really care about the whole authenticity debate or whether she had plastic surgery or that she sounded/looked totally different when she was Lizzy Grant. She’s a performer! But this, from T magazine, is ridiculous:

Without straying too far off the pop grid, she’s the perfect antidote to Rihanna-Gaga overload — dare we say, a skinnier Adele, a more stable Amy Winehouse? 

WHAT? On like every level: WHAT?

It’s so beyond. And when he pops a boner because someone thought they were a couple. And this:

There’s also more than a little of Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the USA” in  the song. Both you could play alone dancing in your bedroom, sing along  to in your convertible with the top down or (it might surprise Cyrus’s  Disney producers) find yourself gyrating to at an illegal warehouse  rave.

Teehee. I mean, Cyrus did a pole dance to that song on national television two years ago, when it came out, she’s a well-known pot smoker, and she gives guys lapdances at parties. Which is all obviously great. But does he not know what? Or does he not know that Party in the USA has probably been played at an “illegal warehouse rave?” This story needed a fact checker and a reality checker.

This will at some point stop being a Lana Del Rey blog, but not today. (And having listened to the rest of the album more or less, I agree, it’s not that great but it has glimmers of the “Video Games” magic here and there, and I find it way more interesting than a lot of what’s charting right now still; and I still feel like every dude who’s written about her gets it wrong.)
