Lana Del Rey is certainly a hot topic these days. The frenzy surrounding Lana Del Rey’s authenticity is an age old story really, because everything pop culture-big is coated in corporate lipgloss before it’s sent to make the monies. Truth.
It’s true, her album has been described as “a multiple choice test with every answer scanned “C.” and “music [that] doesn’t communicate actual feeling.” Ouch. However, it seems that critics have fallen on deaf ears, as her album Born to Die is number 1 in 11 countries.
I’ll admit that I can’t get “Video Games” out of my head. It is the best song to sing in your car. Trust me. Sometimes we like “B” things, and that’s okay man. Guilty or not, pleasures are pleasures.
