The 27-minute film – featuring cameos by Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, John Wayne, Jesus and more – follows Lana from the Garden of Eden to a strip club, a convenience store, a bachelor party and then on to the countryside. Lana, of course, provides the voice-over and musical accompaniment.

Says Consequence of Sound: “Gone is the original’s haze of dub and bass and the Nancy Sinatra undertones. In their place is the stark minimalism of a pseudo-folky cover, complete with light piano, jagged acoustic guitar, lush backing harmonies, and stand-up bass. Though Miley’s spent much of the year either “rapping” or belting, she opts for a low, husky whisper, managing to maintain some of Del Rey’s pomp while emphasizing more of the track’s inherent intimacy.” Love it.
Although she did it “politely”, Lana Del Rey turned down Kanye’s request for her to sing at the over-hyped proposal to Kim Kardashian in San Francisco. He ended up hiring an orchestra instead. Apparently Kim is big Lana fan, but in the end, money couldn’t buy her. #NewRespect (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
Here are the most hated bands of the last 30 years. This isn’t my list and in no way is it definitive, but if all this music disappeared tomorrow, I wouldn’t miss one song. OK. Maybe Smash Mouth’s All-Star. Kidding.
2. 98 Degrees
3. Smash Mouth
4. Black Eyed Peas
5. Insane Clown Posse
6. Hootie & the Blowfish
7. The Goo Goo Dolls
8. John Mayer (I don’t love him but his inclusion is more about his perceived dating douche-bagery, than his music, I think.)
9. Dave Matthews Band
11. Train (THE worst. Lead singer Pat Monahan, pictured)
13. Limp Bizkit
14. Blink 182
15. Lana Del Rey (again not my list. It’s too soon to tell about this one, but she does bug the crap out of people)
Honorable Mention: Kid Rock, Linkin Park, Matchbox 20, Spin Doctors, and Blues Traveler. So, which five bands would you add to the list? And don’t say Gaga – she’s not a band. (via Salon.com; photo: Pacific Coast News)
If you thought Lana del Rey and Lady Gaga were friends, you could be mistaken. Seems Del Rey is taking on Lady Gaga in a rather vitriolic ditty called “So Legit.” In the song that was supposedly leaked online yesterday, Del Rey sings (we think, it’s hard to make out after just one listening) something along the lines of, “Stefani, you suck/I know you’re selling 20 million/Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg,” rhyming “million” with the “william” in Williamsburg. And continues, “You’re looking like a man/you’re talking like a baby/Have we all gone Gaga crazy?” (Actually, it’s Del Rey who sounds like a baby.) While perhaps not the smooth poetry we might expect from Del Rey, the song is said to have “sultry vocals.” (It does!) It could have been written as early as 2008 or 2009, no one knows. Listen to it below. We like it.
