When I did my AOTY snippet, I described her like this: "The music that Lana writes is a throwback to smoky noir movies, slow burn gangster tales, all mixed with the glamour of the olden days of the music industry and Hollywood. The dream like quality, present through all of Born to Die, is akin to curling up with a glass of brandy and smoking a cigarette. You know it’s not a lot of substance, that it’s even a little bad for you, but it’s just so warm and nice that you can’t really argue against it. Lana del Rey isn’t out to break any boundaries, and you can’t expect a whole lot from a woman who writes about her pussy tasting like Pepsi cola."
I don't get why there is such an uproar over her being "fake" -- like, do you think other pop stars are exactly the way they portray themselves? At least Lana is putting out good music, as opposed to the others. Take Katy Perry for example-- makes a career out of pretending to be the weird, odd girl out, and exploiting the LGBTQ community. I'll take Lana any day, thanks.
