Lana Del Rey: living on hate and daddy’s hand-outs
HAVE you ever heard a cow giving birth? It’s a horrible, guttural, depressing noise. So to, is the appalling singing voice of Latest Hot Thang, Lana Del Rey, who has based her fledgling career on daddy’s paycheck, giant lips and making songs that take all their inspiration from 13 year old girl’s Tumblr blogs.
And yet, Del Rey has no idea why she has so many ‘haters’. Or, as they were once called ‘perfectly legitimate critics’.
This week, Lana saw Karl Lagerfeld piping up, saying: “Lana Del Rey is not bad at all. In her photos she is beautiful. Is she a construct with all her implants?”
As compliments go, that really is as cackhanded as they get. And now, such is the volume of negativity around Lana Del Rey, her pals are rallying around her. “She’s never done a thing to hurt anyone or said a bad thing about anyone,” a good Lana pal sounds off on the backlash the young singer has received.
“I don’t know why there are so many haters,” the source continues. “She’s done nothing to inspire it… she’s a great gal.”
Gah. That kind of talk will see people who like pointing out the obvious flaws in popular music, scurrying back to their bedrooms to reassess what they initially thought… won’t it? Like hell. Hype. It’s there to be shot at. Being nice never thwarted it.
