Good For Frances Bean Cobain For Calling Out Lana Del Rey On Being An Idiot

Lana Del Rey GIF you and I were were Born To DieJust when I thought I couldn’t dislike Lana Del Rey any more, she went and said the dumbest things imaginable about how glamorous it is to die young. But you know who has some pretty strong opinions about that? Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of the late Kurt Cobain. And now that Frances is calling out Lana on being a huge effing idiot, I want to give her a standing ovation.

In case you’re not caught up on the completely moronic statements romanticizing dying young that Lana’s been making lately, let me take care of that for you. During a conversation with The Guardian, Lana was listing off some of her idols, when the interview noticed that what connected the names she was mentioning – Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, etc. — was that they’d met an early death. He asked her if she saw that as glamorous, to which she responded:

“I don’t know. Ummm, yeah. I wish I was dead already.”

Facepalm. The interviewer, Tim Jonze, even gives her the opportunity to walk back her statement, but she only becomes more insistent:

Tim: “Don’t say that.”

Lana: “But I do.”

Tim: “You don’t!”

Lana: “I do! I don’t want to have to keep doing this. But I am.”

Tim: “Do what? Make music?”

Lana: “Everything. That’s just how I feel. If it wasn’t that way, then I wouldn’t say it. I would be scared if I knew [death] was coming, but …”

Well great. That’s just great, and soooo nice to hear coming out of the mouth of a wealthy, famous, successful, privileged idiot who’s apparently never had to experience the pain of losing someone young. She’s lucky in that regard, which is why I’m so very very glad that someone not so lucky is taking her to task. Frances’ dad Kurt Cobain died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the age of twenty-seven in 1994, and based on her tweets to Lana in response, she doesn’t find that even the least bit glamorous:

 

 

Yes. Girl. Yes. So well stated that it’s hard to remember that this girl is only twenty-one, seven years younger than Lana, and so much more mature and well-spoken. A bunch of people are up her ass on Twitter, trying to shame Frances for ‘attacking’ Lana, but that’s even dumber than Lana’s original statement. Frances is shutting Lana down for her ignorance in speaking about something that she herself has personal experience of, yeah.

But in the process, she’s also encouraging her to embrace her life and reminding her that she’s talented, which is a pretty generous comment to make about someone who was so glib about the death of your father. Frances should in no world have to defend herself for her tweets, but she’s awesome, so she did:

Okay girl. You get a C for effort, you twit, and Frances gets a standing ovation. See you the next time something foolish comes out of your mouth. (Tomorrow.)

      Uggghhhh to see how casually she talks about wanting to die pisses me off and it worries me how it could potentially effect her fans who may already be dealing with mental illness or thoughts of suicide. Someone please tell Lana to stop talking and just sing, or better yet, stop doing both.

      • Isabelle Rose

        And if she really is depressed and this is a cry for help, what is the response to her then?

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Embrace your life, you’re talented, etc.

      • Isabelle Rose

        There are no quick fixes to depression. I think it’s very insensitive to say to just be grateful, just enjoy your life. All that says is how someone really has no clue what depression is. Don’t you think that is what they want? People spend years trying to balance their brain so they can function/ think “normally”, sometimes their whole life.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Are we really gonna talk about insensitivity here? After what Lana said glamorizing musicians dying young?

      • Isabelle Rose

        I think you would rather tell an unfunny snarky joke than actually discuss anything. Didn’t Lana even clarify that she does not think it’s glamorous to be a musician and die young? It’s in an article you posted, no?

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Which of my responses are you categorizing as a snarky joke? You asked what the response would be if she really were depressed and this was a cry for help, and I pointed to things that Frances Bean wrote in her tweets that speak to that.

        This isn’t about me trying to fix anybody’s depression, this is about me writing a post about someone who said a dumb thing, and then someone who said a smart thing in response.

        Based on our previous interactions, Isabelle, I think it’s unlikely that you’d be happy with any response I made to one of your comments. Do you think that might be accurate?

      • Isabelle Rose

        But I don’t think you ever answer someone with anything substantial. It’s always some poorly worded joke that isn’t even funny. How is it dumb to answer a question honestly? This isn’t even the whole interview and everything she said.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        WHICH of my responses were snarky? That’s the only question I’m asking you right now.

      • Isabelle Rose

        Exactly, you don’t bother with actually answering with what it is being discussed. Do you know have anything intelligent to contribute?

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Girl, you’re exhausting! I’m trying to address your concern, but every time I try to nail down what that concern is, you’d rather accuse me of not addressing it!

      • emma h.

        It’s not worth it i’ve seen this argument with her SO many times.

      • M_G

        Much in the same way YOU are not bothering to actually answer HER question. Do YOU have anything intelligent to contribute, other than talking in circles in a condescending tone?

      • Isabelle Rose

        It’s the way she talks to anyone that disagrees. Usually the only reply is some joke that isn’t funny and is just a deflection

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Isabelle, I’ve responded very politely and in a friendly matter to you on this and other threads, when you do the same!

        In this very moment, I’m waiting to hear back from you as far as which of my responses in this thread have been snarky. If you’re not interested in starting there and working toward an understanding, then I don’t know how to help you.

      • Isabelle Rose

        I just think that you’re a fvcking creep.

        That is all.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Hahaha, okay perfect!

      • M_G

        That’s not true. When a commenter disagrees with Alexis in a respectful way, she engages them in kind. However, that will usually only happen for, like, 3 out of 10 dissenting comments. Most of the time, people who disagree with her or even other commenters do so by insults, condescension, typing nonsense (usually in all caps)…..why on earth should these comments be taken seriously?

      • JenH1986

        She clarified after being called out. Also in one of her songs she says she wants to die. Do I think it’s a cry for help? Maybe, maybe not. She has access to help if she wants it, unlike many clients who don’t have access at all. We can only go by what she says and she’s currently saying that she didn’t mean that. If she says it all the time someone in her life needs to step in. All that being said, based solely on her past interviews, some of her lyrics etc. I think she thinks she’s being dark and a little subversive and that it attracts fans. Depression is no laughing matter, if she really doesn’t want to continue making music she shouldn’t. But I’m not getting the “I’m depressed I want to die” vibe. I’m getting a “I’m supposed to be dark and edgy” vibe.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        She also has a full album called ‘Born To Die’…

      • marie

        Thank you! This is all Alexis knows how to do. Her unfunny snarky comments usually make me want to slam my head against a wall. She picks certain women to continuously insult (i.e Lana Del Rey, Ariana Grande, ect.) and when asked to defend her opinions she corrects spelling errors or uses some stupid insult. And the craziest thing is people actually defend her!

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        You’re ignoring the fact that I repeatedly asked Isabelle what her specific concerns were in an attempt to address them, and she was ultimately unable or unwilling to provide me with any.

      • marie

        You asked once…. after this comment….

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Isabelle: I think you would rather tell an unfunny snarky joke than actually discuss anything. Didn’t Lana even clarify that she does not think it’s glamorous to be a musician and die young? It’s in an article you posted, no?

        Me: Which of my responses are you categorizing as a snarky joke? You asked what the response would be if she really were depressed and this was a cry for help, and I pointed to things that Frances Bean wrote in her tweets that speak to that.

        This isn’t about me trying to fix anybody’s depression, this is about me writing a post about someone who said a dumb thing, and then someone who said a smart thing in response.

        You don’t read no good, yeah?

      • M_G

        “Her unfunny snarky comments usually make me want to slam my head against a wall.” And yet, you continue to read and comment on her posts.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I may be unfunny and snarky, but at least I’m consistent!

      • Nbl

        We defend her because we like her and her point of view. It’s funny and honest. You know who I hate and can’t stand to read? Perez Hilton. So here’s the very simple thing I do to make sure I don’t deal with him. I. Don’t. Go. To. His. Site. Amazingly, this strategy has worked out really well. I suggest you try it.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Hey I like this! Thank you! I like you guys also.

      • FemelleChevalier

        If only those commenters are nice and uses common sense, right?

        But in my observations, those commenters are a bunch vulgar, sociopathic tweeners who lack comprehension and can’t even properly formulate a comment without resulting to petty, personal insults. Not all, but most.

        Writers here uses a satirical tone in their blogs, which those commenters think is “insulting”. It’s like they need to be spoon-fed of critical thinking, comprehension, and humor. Why should the writers give an articulate response if those commenters are not even articulate themselves?

        TL;DR Try to come up with reasonable criticisms so you’ll be taken seriously.

      • Isabelle Rose

        It’s the mob effect. No one thinks for themselves anymore

      • Nbl

        HAHAHA!!!! Seriously? After you spent yesterday defending culture appropriation and telling everyone they’re too PC and sensitive about it, now you’re trying to shame Alexis for not being sensitive enough? Girl, take a seat.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Touche, I didn’t even think of that.

      • Isabelle Rose

        No, I won’t take a seat. Having depression and wanting to die is actually a serious issue

      • Nbl

        So much stupid it hurts. I never said depression wasn’t serious and the contents of the topics ARE different but they are both extremely sensitive issues, that should be treated with respect. It’s incredibly hypocritical of you to demand respect for an issue but show none in return, even when people explain to why respect should be shown. Depression may be a more important issue to yourself but as I’ve stated before and am getting tired of saying, YOU DON’T GET TO CHOSE WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO OTHER PEOPLE AND HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT CERTAIN ISSUES. I capitolized that for you so hopefully it will finally sink in. Now if we flip your argument on its head for a moment, how does it feel when I tell you that if depression is a serious issue for you then it should still be serious no matter how others feel about it. Kind of a stupid argument, yeah? Oh and it’s “your” not “you’re”.

      • Isabelle Rose

        No one gets to tell other people what’s moral and what should be a big deal. But if someone can’t have sensitivity to someone wanting to commit suicide and suffering from severe depression than that speaks to their heartlessness. It does. Far more than not having patience for the constant PC that’s rampant in our society. Someone being so depressed they can’t even have a filter when “it counts”, is not dumb. To me it’s dumb to think that celebrities are to raise their kids. And you are comparing apples to oranges, there is much more to each situation than just it being simple. I stand by everything I said.

      • FemelleChevalier

        Hmmm. My personal opinion in this is that a person with legitimate mental issues — especially people with depression — rarely speaks such callous statements. Then again, it’s all complicated and varies person-to-person.

        Although I’m really glad that you’re aware on how to approach someone who has clinical depression. But at the same time, there’s a prevalence of romanticizing symptoms of mental illness by those who are not mentally ill. For image’s sake, if you will. And it annoys people with legitimate illness.

        I’ll reserve my judgement if she’s ill or not. If she is, then I hope she’s getting help. If she’s not, then I don’t really care much to even be mildly irritated. My only opinion is that public figures in entertainment media should be more aware of what’s coming out of their mouths.

      • Martin Balber

        Alexsis, you pro-abortion or pro- life. Just seeing if we are being consistent

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        We definitely aren’t being consistent, because my name is spelled ‘Alexis’.

      • M_G

        If that’s true, then I sincerely hope she gets the help she needs. I do. But at the same time, a newspaper interview is not the best forum to say things like that, because a) she has the potential to influence others with her words, and b) it’s very offensive to people (like Frances) who have lost people at a young age. I fully support people who want to get help for whatever baggage they have going on in their lives, but that doesn’t excuse their behavior or remove responsibility on their part.

    • Napoleon

      Lana Del Rey is such a bore. I really don’t know what else to say. She continually attempts to invoke this “troubled artist” persona upon herself and it comes across as mindless and egocentric. If she is truly depressed and hopeless then I certainly sympathize with her but the theatrics seem to indicated insincerity. Unfortunately, these kinds of people seem to awarded for their ridiculous facade and I shall rue the inevitable day when Lana Del Rey is considered an icon.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I absolutely agree. Because she doesn’t take seriously the statements she’s making, it makes it hard to take the issues themselves (depression, suicide, etc.) seriously.

    • Papillon

      I don’t even think the real topic on hand is whether Lana Del Depray is truly depressed or not. I think it is her wishing to throw away a life that she has and wishing young death upon herself, and her drawing connections to Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse’s deaths in that process. Also, what is so ambiguous about “umm, yeah” to a question where the interviewer asks whether she sees their deaths as glamourous or not. And thirdly, I think all her brains were sucked in by the plastic all inside her face. That’s why she makes such insensitive, ignorant and ridiculous remarks.

      • Isabelle Rose

        I don’t think she made that connection though, the reporter did. I believe the reporter mentioned them, not her.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        “I wish I was dead already,” Lana Del Rey says, catching me off guard. She has been talking about the heroes she and her boyfriend share – Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain among them – when I point out that what links them is death and ask if she sees an early death as glamorous. “I don’t know. Ummm, yeah.”

    • keetakat

      My brother thought the same thing about dying young and talented (encouraged by his idols — all dead) and you know what it wasn’t? Glamorous. My baby brother, stiff and curled like a dead spider with crusted foam in the corners of his mouth was not glamorous. Not even a little bit. My mother’s face as she held her hand on her son’s still heart? Not glamorous. My dad’s cries? Not remotely. fucking. glamorous.

      What an amazing young woman Ms. Cobain is growing into. I don’t know that I have it in me to be that noble.

      • Nbl

        My heart goes out to you and your family.

      • keetakat

        Thank you so much. It is such a pervasive affliction and it doesn’t discriminate at all. Our young people are vulnerable and they need role models that are uplifting, inspiring and positive. Talent & fame don’t make people wise, it just provides a platform — how they use that platform determines whether or not they are actually worthy of it. Francis Bean may very well be…this Lana person, not so much.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I’m so sorry that you had to experience that.

      • keetakat

        Thank you and thank you for shining a light (or at least passing the torch) on this horrendous abuse of achievement. Everytime my brother listened to and obsessed over people like Layne Staley or Kurt Cobain or even Justin Furstenfield (he’s still living but his lyrics are self-indulgent and seductive), I just wanted to scream, “STOP IT!!! Just turn it off!” (as if that would put a stopper in his depression… Foolish, I know).

    • Martin Balber

      How dare you call someone an idiot. Lana hs reached a level that few people achieve, despite ongoing undisclosed illnesses, endless hours touring, endless hours in the studio, endless rehearsals, endless daggers thrown at her by low achievers as yourself and a break-up of a long time fiance. Until you’ve walked in her heels, why don’t you give her the benifit of the doubt. By the way lets not forget Ms. Cobains Sweet Suicide 16 party.

      • Tate

        First you shouldn’t like your own comments, it’s sad. Second, Lana is an idiot. Saying she wished she were dead so she didn’t have to continue on, is the epitome of being a moron. She thinks her life is so hard, then stop making music and get a real job. Nobody is forcing her to be a musician. When rich successful people bitch about how tough their life is it makes them look like idiots and is a slap in the face to people who actually have tough lives.

      • Martin Balber

        I didn’t press like on my comment, but someone with obvious intelligence did. Anyway, you would be lying if you never said you wished you were dead. Do you think rich sucessful people just get that way, were lucky in some way. Vitriol against someone you don’t know is more sad, more pathetic. I reiterate, haters just hate because of latent fears about themselves

      • M_G

        I can’t speak for anyone else, but sure, I admit I have had low points, that I have uttered “I wish I was dead right now” (though, in all honesty, I think it came more out of exasperation from the situation(s) than out of a genuine desire to be dead). But the difference is I didn’t say it (and repeatedly defend my position) while being interviewed for a magazine article. As you’ve said, she’s achieved a lot, and she has a lot of fans, people who listen to what she has to say. Saying things like this in interviews is dangerous, regardless of her intention. I hold celebrities to a higher standard, not because I think they’re better than the rest of us, but because they have far more influence than the average person. And I think Frances was completely justified in calling her out for it.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Well said.

      • Tate

        I don’t hate her because she’s successful. Anytime a rich person complains how tough their life is it irritates me. There’s millions of people who live paycheck to paycheck, who can’t afford health insurance etc. They have it tough. Nobody (except delusional fans) want to hear some rich person complain that their life is so tough because it’s not.

      • Isabelle Rose

        Anyone can have a tough life no matter how much money they have

      • Tate

        Yeah not having to spend a majority of your life working 9-5, having millions of dollars and never having to worry about bills, food, gas etc, is so tough.

      • keetakat

        “…Lana hs reached a level that few people achieve…”

        That means exactly zero if she abuses or neglects to recognize her influence. In fact, it makes her obliviousness all the more offensive.

        Some of us don’t measure success by what one achieves, rather we measure it by what one contributes to humanity. A song is beautiful but cheap when compared with how she may inspire people who do walk in her shoes every day and see her as a role model.

    • Martin Balber

        Hahaha! Yeah, I saw that one……yikes, you pissed her off! She’s even attacking the other fans who even appear like they agree with you. “You obv don’t love her enough to kill her haters.” I mean, TOTES OBV, am I right?

        Why not ? Your in a pofession that’s cries exposure. But I shall look you up.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I’m sure you think this is some deep statement, but I’ve read it several times and it literally makes no sense.

      • Martin Balber

        Publish or die, isn’t that correct. But a blogger isn’t a real journalist i suppose.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        ‘Publish or die’ is a phrase that’s used to describe professors scrabbling for tenure, but sure.

        And the fact that I’m not a journalist is the first thing you’ve gotten correct all day.

      • Martin Balber

        I glad you accept its applicable. That would be two correct things all day. That is a record for me.

      • Nbl

        Well there goes my faith in humanity!

    • J_Doe5686

      Honest to God, I’ve never heard a single song of hers. But all the pictures I see of her and interviews I peruse leads me to believe that she’s boring as hell! She probably was trying to be “edgy & interesting” but came out as a childish comment. A kid wanting attention.

      • Martin Balber

        Boring enough to keep searching her out. She must be in your head

      • Martin Balber

        I mean you have to type her name in the search engine, seek out articles about her, log in or register, then write something stupid. A lot if effort there buddy

      • J_Doe5686

        Martin Balber, please get out of your mom’s basement, take your meds and reply me in about 2 months. Let me know how it goes!

        ETA: Whenever I have insomnia. I do read her interviews. It’s better than warm milk and honey and herbal tea. Better than Tylenol PM and my trusted allergy medication. So your right, but please follow the instructions I gave you in the first paragraph.

      • Martin Balber

        What’s up buddy, having a bad day. Your not denying that’s exactlly what you did. I actually do the same thing, but my focus is to call out assholes as they present themselves. My bias is I love Lanas music and story. Your not man enough to your admit your bias against not necessarily Lana, but achievment in general because its foreign to you and no have no successes to call you own. My moms basement is 3500 sg ft, how big is you moms ?

      • Nbl

        I don’t have a basement but I own my own house and choose to brag about my own achievements and not my parents.

      • Martin Balber

        And that has what to do with j.does’ original comment. I know its tough, but follow the conversation from beginning. So, how much is the tea in China ?

      • Nbl

        I wasn’t responding to the original comment. If I was, the reply would have been under that specific comment. I was responding to your smartass comment with a smartass comment.

      • Martin Balber

        Well, that was fairly obvious. So what do you think of this bloggers piece. I mean that’s what we are here for. Does she have the right to call someone an idiot without total context ?

      • J_Doe5686

        Dude, reading is fundamental. I can tell by reading your comments that English is not your native tongue. It’s OK, but if your going to criticize a blogger at least, the least you can do is polish your English a bit more. And instead of criticizing another poster who commented on your wannabe smart-ass comment realize that you need to get a grasp on how replying works, too. IF you want to rip me a new one don’t reply to yourself.

      • FemelleChevalier

        I dunno. The mere fact that he wants to compare his mom’s house to other people’s mom’s house is clear sign that he’s too young.

        That and the math.

      • J_Doe5686

        And it shows that he still lives with his mom. He keeps shooting himself in the foot. Like WTF? !

      • Martin Balber

        “I’m sorry jdoe, maybe to you college-level English would seem like a second language. I will try to use simpler words next time.”

        You’re very amusing, you know.

      • J_Doe5686

        You just killed your argument right there. It’s “Second” not “Secounds,” and the only reason I keep messing with you it’s because you keep shooting yourself in the foot. Not my fault! What’s your retort?

      • Martin Balber

        See, it worked. Made it dumb enough for you to understand. Gave you a little morsel to parse so you would not feel lonely,emasculated

      • J_Doe5686

        I’m not a man, bro! I’m a woman, bring the sexist jokes!!! ETA: IF you use better punctuation and grammar you English could pass as native or at least college level ESL.

        Well, you didn’t deny your not lonely. Sorry, don’t have any sexist jokes.

      • J_Doe5686

        Great, keep using good grammar, (not great, but it’s something. A good start!) And you’d get farther!

      • Nbl

        Yes, Del Ray made an idiotic remark and deserves to be called out on it. Sometimes just a few words can tell you a lot about someone. For example, I know nothing about you except for the few comments you have made on this board. However, from those comments, I’m convinced you’re an insufferable douche and banging my head against a concrete wall would be more mentally stimulating than having a conversation with yourself.

        Oh btw, if you have a mortgage you don’t own home. But you know that right.

      • Nbl

        Really? You’re going to argue semantics? You really need to remove that stick that’s shoved up your ass. My unclogging you will shake loose a sense of humor. I doubt it but one can hope.

      • Tate

        You do realize you can love her music and still criticize her for being an idiot, right?

      • Martin Balber

        I think your being a little dishonest. You’ve called her a moron, now an idiot. Thinks she should quit making music. So why lie about loving her music

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I don’t think Tate made any claims about loving her music — it was more a comment about thinking someone is an idiot and liking their music aren’t mutually exclusive. In my case, take Ariana Grande, for example!

      • Martin Balber

        So, I can take from that Tate hates her music and thinks she’s an idiot. That makes more sense. I’m ok with that. Lets ask Tate

      • FemelleChevalier

        Read again.

      • FemelleChevalier

        How old are you? I’m just curious.

      • Tate

        First I never said I like her music, although she does have a few songs I like. Second, when I said you can like someone’s music and still think something they said is ridiculous, I was referring to you. For example: I like Tom Cruise as an actor. I think he makes some pretty good movies. Yet I think he’s an idiot. Jumping on Oprah’s couch the whole Scientology thing. So see, you can like someone’s music/movies and still think they’re an idiot.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Totally agree on Tom Cruise! Just got back aboard that train with The Edge Of Tomorrow.

      • Tate

        He was great in that movie and movie was outstanding.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        So. Good. Everyone at work is tired of hearing me talk about it.

      • M_G

        Unless your mom lives in a castle, I find that hard to believe.

      • Martin Balber

        Amazing how irony and sarcasm are completely lost on some people

      • M_G

        There was absolutely nothing ironic about your comment. Sarcasm is a bit of a stretch, too.

      • Martin Balber

        To mock or convey contempt with emphatic expression. I think I did both

      • M_G

        “My moms basement is 3500 sg ft, how big is you moms?” Explain to me what in this sentence I should find mocking, contemptuous, or emphatic.

      • FemelleChevalier

        Maybe he thinks that the comment is “contemptuous” enough? *Shrug*

        I would ask him, but he’s not replying to me. I feel left out. :-(

      • M_G

        Well, feel free to jump in on this “what constitutes irony and sarcasm” debate if you’d like. ;-)

      • Martin Balber

        Hey, I’m sorry, I’m between patients right now, how can I help you

      • M_G

        Ah, see that? THAT is sarcasm.

      • Martin Balber

        Thank you. Hey, can’t hit a homerun every time

      • FemelleChevalier

        Is that sarcasm?

        Awww… Little Martin got it! *wipes a single tear*

      • Martin Balber

        I was mocking the poster who said I was in my moms basement. My moms basement is bitch’n. Some people you really have to spell it out for them.

      • M_G

        …..because nothing about your comment actually mocks the other poster. At all. In any way.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I have a feeling you’re right.

    • Tate

      Lana is a moron. The people defending her are morons. Seems the world is full of morons. Shocking I know;)

    • marie

      She actually has severe depression, an un-diagnosed illness and serious stage fright…. Theres no way you can say she’s not talented though. You don’t have to like her, but come on she can sing and writes fantastic lyrics.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I don’t particularly like her, so I’m biased as far as her talent goes. I don’t find her to be particularly talented, but you’re welcome to disagree!

      • marie

        Fair enough.

    • emma h.

      I love Francis don’t get me wrong, but can we stop praising her for being such a great role model. She had a freaking suicide themed 16th birthday (that cost 300,000+ none the less).

    • Martin Balber

      Hey, all you posters to my comments. Y’all have great and this has been a blast This would have been great, in a bar drinking togerther. Words like idiot, moron don’t have a place in proper argument, so just be a tad nicer. If I missed insulting anyone, I apologize and will try to do better next time. I am declaring victory in this debate and moving on to antagonize someone else. Thank you

      • Nbl

        I just declared that I’m the Queen of Jupiter and Tom Hiddleston is my future husband.

      • Martin Balber

        Excellent

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Congratulations!!!! Also I am very jealous.

    • deshaunny

      Although I don’t agree with what Lana said I still love her as a person and I love her music

    • Christie

      This is the same girl that had a suicidal themed sweet 16 party, no?

    • Fuckyouall

      Plot twist you’re all fucking idiots. LANA DEL REY IS BETTER THAN YOU AND THIS SHITTY ARTICLE

    • Martin Balber

      In other news, Lana del Reys Ultraviolence has sold 356000 albums worldwide placing the singers sophomore effort at no.1. With Born to Die, conservative estimates are saying upwards , for both albums should total 10,000,000 by end of year. However, all is not what it appears. Alexsis Rhiannon, on good authority, has incontrovertible proof that Lana has not really sold not one album. Her claim is that Pat Grant, Lanas father has bought all the albums and has them stored in his 3500 sg. ft basement in Lake Placid ,New York.

      Ms. Rhianon, real name Diasy Whatthefuck, saying of her sources, ” Thier information is impeccable, their grammar perfect. After all being grammatically correct is more important than being factually correct”

      We hope Alexsis keeps up the good work. She had turned down an editor-at-large position at the New York Times to concentrate and support the half-dozen posters that read her blog. Saying Alexis “fuck journalism, blogging is where its at”
