Lana del Rey Born to die

Named after the great actress Lana Turner and the glamorous car Ford del Rey. Elizabeth Woolridge Grant aka know as Lana del Rey has recorded one of the best records of the current year, the amazing Born to die which contains songs such as Blue Jeans, Video Games and the mega hit Born to die. What is more, she has just signed a contract with the Swedish label H&M, in consequence, you are to see her face everywhere. (She is the face of the Autumn season). In November she is publishing a new album and she has worked recently with Cheryl Cole. Prior to this, she published last January one of the best records of the 2012, Born to die, you are right!! this post is about the new emerging star Lana del Rey.

Lana del Rey was born in New York city but she was raised in a rural place of the State of New York, At 16 she went to a female boarding school in Connecticut which she left in order to start college in New York City, (she started Metaphysics) and then she picked her first guitar... When her career was launched her backgrounds were deemed humble but later on, it was revealed that an important record label had been working on so that create her image.. She evokes the golden age of the Hollywood actresses singing dark tales of love. As a matter of fact, almost every song in the Born to die album is about love, love stories which are not sweet, they are painful but Lana del Rey has a positive attitude towards them. Lana del Rey

Furthermore, other stories are about her experiences living in a parking and reaching fame as she was living hard times sleeping in a car and hanging out with bad people. Notwithstanding criticism her skills as a singer and a songwriter are undoubtedly fabulous. Born to die is the most important song in the album it is the main single, and it has a great video clip in which appears the model Bradley Soileau, so good it is that it would not be a surprise if it earns some awards, it is a tale of love, life and death in which Lana del Rey and Bradley Soileau act like a couple. It is really passionate and powerful.

Regardless of the success, quality  and importance of the single Born to die, Video games is the best song according to Lana del Rey. As a matter of fact, Lana del Rey still weeps when she sings it as it tells of a deeply story of love, a real declaration and  it was this song which got the attention of an important record label after being uploaded on You tube. Lana del Rey

When Lana del Rey was a teenager she used to drink a lot, far too much, something she has not done for eight years as she faced great problems concerning to drinking. She had two overly strong relationships which did not end well even though they were both in love, this can be seen on the songs Off the races, National anthem and Blue jeans. She considers herself much more of a songwriter than a singer and she started to write songs at the kindly age of eleven, she was also the leader of her church choir. The album opened last winter and she had a disappointed debut singing in the famous show Saturday Night live, such bad her performance was that she faced a lot of criticism and she was imitated in the following edition of Saturday Night Live. Her influences are Eminem, Anthony and the Johnsons, Elvis Presley, Britney Spears and Frank Sinatra. Some has called her the new Nancy Sinatra in a gangsta modern version. Many claim that she has destroyed her face because of plastic surgery, they say her lips are too big. However, she has sworn not having had a single operation at all. She also says that few years ago she was broke and living in a car therefore she has never had money to spend on this kind of things. As far as Halcombe is concerned, the important thing is the  quality of her work.

We are all born to die but you are going to hear this album several times craving for this female crooner who sings with an unique beautiful voice great love affairs and strong experiences such as the ones which Lana del Rey has experienced, she is  the new and the great star of 2012 and she has just born to live a long artistic life. By the way, Which is her best song? Do you think her appearance in Saturday Night Live was so horrible? Does she deserve the following sketch? Does she have a fake image or she is a real artist?. In my opinion, her album is great, her performance in the famous programme is strange, her best song is Video Games and she is an extraordinary artist.
