Lana Del Rey is an American singer-songwriter dubbed as 'the one to watch in 2012'.
So lets face it-- Who would have given much thought to the idea of being BORN to DIE?!! It's a fact but far away from our every day thought...
The fact that her voice is truly amazing doesn't mean that she isn't exerting a lot of effort in choosing her video clips scenarios or the messages conveyed or the style of dress & make up. Every detail in the clip seems well planned and thought through, not like those silly clips today with flashing images, boobs and silliness (I guess "I am sexy and I know it" video clip comes to mind here LOL) What a contrast that I am so thrilled about.
'I'm more of a studio singer and I'm fine with that!"said Lana

So it doesn’t matter if Lana Del Ray is entirely sarcastic when she belts out, “It’s YOU, it’s YOU, it’s all for YOU.” It doesn’t matter that there is an edge to her voice that sounds something like rage and despair. Lana Del Ray has conquered America with plastic surgery, video games, a regression to nostalgia, and an appeal to the sex drive of every male music critic on the planet. It doesn’t matter if she has anything real to sell because Lana Del Ray has made us think about the relationship between selling fantasy and selling lies."
Oh well, no matter how controversial Lana Del Rey is, she is still a great voice and that is all that matters...to me at least.
