Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” Is My New Summer Jam

Lana Del Rey's "West Coast" Is My New Summer Jam
West Coast Represent!

Okay, okay, I get it, California, you want me to move back. I’m in! I’m game! And even if I wasn’t, the “Mad Men” premiere would have convinced me. It did not escape my notice that everyone at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Etc. Etc. Etc. is miserable except Pete Campbell, who has found a new zest for life after moving to Los Angeles. Seriously, I never thought I would say this, but California Pete is my spirit animal. “The city’s flat and ugly, and the air is brown, but I love the vibrations,” basically sums up the feelings coursing through me as I write this post from a hotel bed in Glendale. I’m also listening to Lana Del Rey’s new single, “West Coast,” which, if it wasn’t 45 years too late, would totally be Pete’s summer jam. Instead, it’s mine. Listen above!

This “Breaking Bad” Meets Lana Del Rey Parody Is As Weirdly Perfect As It Sounds

Got That "Breaking Bad" Sadness?

This Aaron Paul -approved “Breaking Bad” parody music video, featuring a dead-on impression of Lana Del Rey, is pretty darn perfect. (It also contains spoilers, so don’t watch if you’re one of those weird people who hasn’t caught up with the rest of us real fans, ahem.) Sigh … what are we going to do without this show?! [YouTube]

I suppose if you absolutely insist on wearing black lace flares, a fringed band tee, a flannel shirt, and a backwards cap all at once, somewhere, some way, some how, a Courtney Love concert might just be the right (or only) place to do it. Right, Lana Del Rey? [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Never been much of a Lana Del Rey fan. To me, her voice and her whole “thing” is like the human equivalent of Klonopin or something. And I’m not quite sure how she got crazy style icon status, but you know, you get your own Mulberry bag and suddenly everybody cares what kind of lipstick you wear. In any case, Ms. Del Rey was spotted coming back from a late night deli run in London Tuesday night, and she was wearing this coat. Which makes her look exactly like the cowardly lion.

She wore blue velvet...

There was a moment there when I thought Lana Del Rey would be but a blip on our collective cultural radar given that, um, everyone kind of seemed to hate her, but with big-name brands like Mulberry, Jaguar, and H&M backing the controversial songstress, it seems like Lana will have a role in the zeitgeist for the foreseeable future. The real question is no longer, “who is she and what is she doing here,” but rather, “should she really be playing in David Lynch territory?”

Del Rey channels the director’s trademark grim atmosphere in a new video ad spot for H&M borrowed straight from the Lynch repertoire, complete with a rendition of “Blue Velvet.” As one of those really awful fangirls who believes in the sanctity of all things Lynchian, I’m not exactly excited about the homage, but I guess if there’s any pop singer who can do this tricky thing justice, it’s probably going to be Lana Del Rey. She’s kind of creepy, and I’m totally into it. [Spin]

British GQ’s Woman Of The Year Lana Del Rey Goes Nude For The Cover

Lana Del Rey is a music-world Svengali and she knows it. There’s nothing I can say about her that somebody hasn’t said already, and better than I ever could considering I’m all kinds of ambivalent about Lana: as a singer, as a performer, as a persona, as a human being (part of me isn’t quite convinced that she’s not computer-generated). It would seem that the songstress has some unexpected fans, however, at British GQ, where she was named 2012′s Woman Of The Year. And, shocker, she’s naked on the cover! The special issue depicts Lana stripped bare save for a face full of dramatic makeup and a body dripping with opulent jewels. There’s something about this first photo that is charming to me — she’s not posing provocatively or vamping it up, and she looks really pretty and totally vulnerable. I also think it’s nice to see that she isn’t whippet-thin and has, like, thighs and stuff. She just looks very soft and not at all like she’s starving. Looking good, Lana! [Refinery29]

This got us thinking about other celebs who’ve bared it all for the sake of a photo spread. Just for fun, we decided to give you a little peep show. Go ahead, look. You know you want to.

The Ineffable Charm Of Lana Del Rey’s H&M Photoshoot

I don’t know why, but I picture Lana Del Rey as having the personality and the voice of Kristen Wiig’s “Saturday Night Live” character “Sexy Shanna” — the “sexy” secretary with the high-pitched Marilyn Monroe-ish voice who’s kind of a dumb vixen. I’m not saying she’s actually like that, but something about her affect makes me think she’s a pretty girl who farts a lot.

She’s the star of the new H&M fall ad campaign, and while the shots are beautiful, some of her poses are cracking me up. Check out her looks — and our captions — after the jump!

Style Stealer: Lana Del Rey Is Off To The Races In This Laidback Look

Lana del Rey ranks pretty high on my list as far as seriously questionable celebrities go — is she legitimately talented or the fortunate byproduct of an “image makeover” and a powerhouse PR team? Chances are we will never know, but it’s whatever because I kind of enjoy her. I like her makeup and her music makes me feel sassy and light-hearted, which is a rarity for moody, tempestuous me! I also like her clothes, but only sometimes. This is one of those times: an embroidered off-white skirt is sweet and girly, but paired with a comfortable cropped sweater borrowed from the boys (literally — snag a V-neck in a youth XL or 14 for the perfect abbreviated length) and an easy pair of flats, the whole look takes on new sporty dimensions. No matter your opinion of Lana, you’ve got to commend her for her style savoir-faire — you can get the deets after the jump. Keep reading »

I have a mixed bag of emotions regarding Lana del Rey, but I’m pretty consistent with my love of her hair and makeup. Voluminous sixties-inspired bouffants paired with heavy-lidded cat eyes is just the type of thing I’m into, and Lana usually nails the look. Usually. Whatever’s going on here is so, so questionable: large and in charge with, like, a cluster of fake butterflies pinned to it? Could someone please explain this to me? I’m afraid I don’t understand.
