Lana Del Rey did a cover of Nirvana’s ‘Heart Shaped Box’ during a concert in Sydney last week, and though it’s down now, Courtney Love–pardon me–Courtney Love Cobain, went on twitter today to smugly ask if Lana even knows what the song is about. And then explained it was about her vagina. The phrase ‘heart shaped box’ refers to a ladies vagina. Who would have guessed.
After that she said Kevin Spacey is Keyser Söze and Bruce Willis is a ghost. The theme was: things drunk heroin addicts find amazing but everyone else figured out 15 years ago.
People say that Lana Del Rey is too pouty and quiet but consider this: fuck those people. Lana Del Rey is awesome. She’s hot, she writes all her own songs, and she didn’t just copy someone else or rely on gimmicks like that jackass Lady Gaga. Not only that but she seems like the kind of girl that we’ll eventually see naked, and that’s a trait I really admire in girls.
NOTE: There are still plans to re-release her first album, ‘Lana Del Ray A.K.A. Lizzy Grant’, this summer. Which is smart because ‘Little Girls’ (aka ‘Put Me In A Movie’) and ‘Mermaid Motel’ are awesome. image of Lana smiling and posing with fans yesterday in London = inf and bauer griffin
