They’re saying that Lana del Rey’s collection for H&M is so L.A. noir.
You should be very careful with those words.
You should be careful with that city.
This is definitely not L.A. and never will be.
But how do you sell clothes when you’re singing about girls
that are so tired and so drunk and so addicted to fame
to tripping in front of cameras
to kneeling in front of strangers ?
How do you wear Lynch on your T-shirt?
How do you style terror with
“Talk to me about Hawaii, I’m your dream girl”?
What do you do with your hair when you’re
make-up is all over your face and your prom queen crown
is all crooked?
I was watching the pictures with her and I felt sad.
She was wearing her dread like the most expensive pair of shoes
but they were trying to hide all her rawness, all her sadness
behind powerful lights and jokes about
how dark she is.
You should be so scared, you should be screaming and making clothes
that tell a story about all the girls in her head in her songs.
“She says you don’t want to get this way
Famous, and dumb, and no age
My, I’m dying.”
