Lana Del Rey, weirdo indie chanteuse, has burned out after one album, which is not too surprising since her presence in the music world brought at first outrage, then confusion, then apathy, then more confusion. Rather than follow up Born to Die with another album, Del Rey plans to continue modeling and move into the movie business.
In an interview with Vogue Australia (via NME), Del Rey says, “When I was starting, I had a vision of being a writer for film and that’s what I am doing now. I’m so happy… Hopefully I will branch into film work and stay there. That will be my happy place. I’d like to stay in one place for a long time.” As my buddy Joe Reid writes, “Well, we had a good run, movies.”
Meanwhile, Del Rey is now the face attached to Jaguar’s upcoming F-Type sports car. As TopSpeed puts it (because they are INSANE):
Lana del Rey is the personification of a girl that every warm-blooded man hopes to be locked in step with. She’s got a voice that can serenade a pack of big cats, a gorgeous face that can make men weep, and an all-around appeal that can convince people of any gender to buy the products that has her name attached to it.
Surprisingly, no one commented that Lana Del Rey can serenade a pack of big cats because they confuse her voice for that of the housecat variety.
