Lana Del Rey: Controversial?

Who is she? While the former Lizzy Grant has changed her stage name, appearance (hello plastic) and tune throughout the years she has resurfaced with a great new sound.

"She is one of the most controversial figures in indie, especially as we begin to uncover her past. She was basically a failed mainstream artist who is being 'rebranded' behind major label dollars"

Despite all this, retro's new designated gal pal, Lana Del Rey's songs are absolutely excellent.

Topic: Unrequited Love.

Even though her most recent live performances reflect someone unsure and awkward these ethereally, lo-fi and old school videos below do a good job of hiding that.

I say 'You da bestest'
Lean in for a big kiss
Put his favorite perfume on
Go play a video game

Blue jeans, White shirt
Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like, james dean, for sure

People are taking notice, even Odd Future did a remix of one her songs.
