Lana Del Rey is still in the midst of promoting her new album by touring various places, so there's lots of choice material of her confusing sweetness still going around. Here she's at an actual record store in LA. Wow, they still have those? And are those real CDs behind her there? I haven't seen one of those in years. I think I might have some of those out in the garage somewhere. I forget, can I play those with my iPhone? Is there an app for those? I'll have to look into that.
Anyway, back to Lana. She is a conundrum. Her preppy getup and the shampoo commercial hair all seem to be appealing to one audience, while her music is going in a completely different direction. I don't know if those contradictions are just some subtle ploy to maximize her appeal to a wider audience, or a genuine reflection of a duality in her personality. All I can say is that I really like one aspect of her, and mostly dislike the other. You can probably guess which is which.
