On that note (no pun intended harharhar), I am unapologetically obsessed with Lana Del Rey. I worship the ground she walks on. Not only is she one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen in my life, but she's also mad talented. I spent at least an hour today on Pinterest just pinning pictures of her. She just oozes this incredible sultriness. Her voice has that gorgeous raspiness to it. I love how she's a most intriguing combination of sugar and spice. Her lyrics are gritty, sexy, vulgar, catchy, lovely, fun, and dark. Take these lyrics from her song Gods and Monsters from her Paradise album.
As a good Christian girl, I should be offended by the use of such language. Right? Wrong. So very very wrong. Let's go to Confession for a moment. The more nasty, raunchy, vulgar, dirty, and even dare I say... twisted that something is the more drawn to it I find I am. Don't get me wrong, I love sweet things. I love The Bible, The Book of Mormon, Jesus, Church is one of my favorite places. I'm just saying on the way to church I may listen to My Neck, My Back by Thug Misses, Khia. Maybe that will lose me some church friends or respect, maybe that makes me a hypocrite but, I am what I am.
|To put it bluntly.|
So, back to my girl Lana. If God said, "Amanda, I grant thee one wish. I will make thee look like anyone you want." I'd be like, "K, so morph me into The Coney Island Queen".
So to the music. My favorites:
Born To Die
Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Tell me all the things you want to do
I heard you like the bad girls
Honey, is that true?
He says to "be cool" but, I don't how yet, wind in my hair,
Hand on the back of my neck
I said, "Can we party later on?" he said, "Yes"
Now my life is sweet like cinnamon
Like a fucking dream I'm living in
I think I'll miss you forever
Like the stars miss the sun in the morning sky
I even think I found God
In the flashbulbs of the
Gods and Monsters
Dope, shoot it up straight to the heart please
I don't really wanna know what's good for me
