Hello Everyone! I am pretty sure I am a little late at discovering this artist, Lana Del Rey, but I am so obsessed with her right now. ‘A bit retro, ironic and modern’ T magazine describes her sound. The innocent yet very seductive Brigitte Bardot look and voice itself for me is very hypnotic and her lyrics are dark, giving the slightly dysfunctional beauty queen vibe. Pouty lips, big brown eyes with cat eye liner, bouffant hair is everything guys desire and girls would like to be. There has been controversy to her look and that she was a manufactured star. That shouldn’t really matter, it should be about the music. I have caught myself putting her ‘Born to Die’ album on repeat. All the songs are very catchy and it is hard to pick a favorite. There is a hint of hip hop influence in her lyrics and sound, which may be why I am absolutely obsessed with her music right now. Lana really is someone to watch out for, I’m looking forward to see what her future in the music industry looks like.
Check out her newest video ‘Carmen.’ Her videos to me seem to have the french cinema look to them, love it!
Until next time!
