Lana, again. The poptress of the moment is the latest starlet to inspire a Mulberry design. The new bag comes in a variety of styles and will be available in May for £630. The 25-year-old singer, who was a front-row guest at the brand’s runway show in London yesterday, later performed at the Saville Club in Mayfair to an audience packed with very well-known celebrities. Believe it or not, here in our EB-Office I’m the only one left who’s with Lana. Who cares? I still dig how refreshing and unrefined she is, and the tragic undertones in her persona make me weep. Judge yourself; watch the snippet below:
Yes, we still have a soft spot for Lana Del Rey. Her debut album Born To Die was released yesterday and went straight to #1 on the iTunes charts in 21 countries around the world. When we learned that the Taiwanese animation news outfit NMA.TV made a very literal CGI retelling the rise of what we call LDR, we could not resist watching. The tiny movie tells Lana’s story better than we ever even knew. Be amazed by their interpretation of the full Lana Del Rey story, from her receiving the Hipster Runoff crown to her transformation into the oft-quoted ‘gangster Nancy Sinatra’ to her lackluster SNL performances. Have a watch below:
Lana Del Rey, yes we have a crush on you. But there have been so many remixes of ‘Video Games’ and ‘Blue Jeans‘ we were beginning to lose interest. Now her third single ‘Born To Die‘ has been reworked, and as we’re huge fans of Clams Casino‘s work, we had to give this one a shot. It’s definitely worth a listen, although the collaboration between the hot producer of the moment and close-to-overkill singer is kinda what you’ve expected: hazy beats in bed with slow-downed pop vocals.
The interesting questions is: who came up with the idea of these remixes. Her label, Universal? Or did Clams send edits out to Lana the same way he did it with Tyler back in the day? We don’t know. But we know we can’t get enough. If you feel us, check the remix out below, as well as Woodkid’s take on the same song.
