Lana Del Rey has opened up about a particular song from her album Ultraviolece. "Fucked My Way Up to the Top" is the 9th track on the most recent album, and the song hinges on the narrator’s pursuit of stardom and using sex to achieve it.  Knowing that Lana is an artist who writes songs based on voyeuristic nostalgia, I assumed that elements of this track (including lyrics like: ‘I’m a dragon, you’re a whore’ and ‘What I ...

On June 22, Frances Bean Cobain spoke out about Lana Del Rey’s recent comments regarding the glamorization of musicians that die young, specifically her now infamous statement: “I wish I was dead already.”In a series of tweets that tagged @LanaDelRey, Cobain reached out to the singer, saying “The death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize…I’ll never know my father because he died young & it becomes ...

I’ll be the first to say it - I’m a Lana Del Rey fan. I have my copy of her album Born to Die. I like her songs for the most part, no matter how cheeseball that makes me.  But in her cover story with Fader magazine, promoting her new album Ultraviolence, Lana has now (infamously) stated that, “the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept…Whenever people bring up feminism, I’m like, god. I’m just not ... Read More
Just when we thought we had finally eschewed all reason for live TV, last night's broadcast of the Grammys made us glad we slogged through all those Pepsi commercials and Justin Timberlake sponsorships. Not for the ceremony itself, but for the debut of a brand new trailer for Disney's Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie as the hottest Disney villain since Hades. Angie stuns as the Sleeping Beauty villain in a horned headpiece, green CGI flames, and a collar higher ... Read More
After several delays, Lana Del Rey’s highly anticipated short film Tropico has been released, and it does not disappoint. Featuring Lana Del Rey and Shaun Ross, Tropico begins with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and chronicles their descent into crime and poverty in Los Angeles after eating the forbidden fruit. Tropico, essentially three connected music videos, isn’t necessarily a major creative shift for the songstress. She is known for her ... Read More
Do you ever get sick of hearing about Beyoncé’s sex appeal, or reading a paragraph long description of Lana Del Rey’s lips? You’re not the only one. While feminists have often disparaged the physical representation of women in the media, it seems that journalistic coverage, particularly magazine profiles, might be just as superficial and ultimately detrimental. Carly Lewis recently dissected how male writers cover famous women, often writing profiles ... Read More
Despite the fact that she only just released the four-minute long trailer yesterday, Lana Del Rey’s video for “National Anthem,” featuring A$AP Rocky, was released this morning- and it's definitely interesting. Directed by Anthony Mandler, the video features Lana playing both Marilyn Monroe AND Jackie Onassis while A$AP plays JFK in what appears to be a live-action instagram reel. Whether it has you bleeding red, white, and blue or ready to move ... Read More
The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute benefit gala is unofficially one of fashion's biggest nights - Ralph Lauren declares it the "Super Bowl of fashion." A-listers, armed with their $25,000 tickets, came together Monday night in their most adventurous outfits to make an impression and celebrate fashion as an art at the Vogue-sponsored event. And while some of the sartorial choices on Monday shone, many fell flat, and some were just perplexing. ... Read More

Watch Katniss be a total badass.  You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this video   YEAH!! Takes that, Game Makers! While we're on the topic, check out this Hunger Games parody of Lana del Rey's Video Games. You need to a ... Read More
Everyone and their mothers have an opinion, it seems, on Lana Del Rey. We here at BUST have blogged about her twice in the last month alone. (That’s actually a small number if you consider how many times her name has come up in conversation around the office.) The controversy over her is passionate, fascinating—and completely unnecessary. When I hear people getting up in arms about her sex appeal, her body modifications (lip injections, anyone?), or ... Read More
