People seem to hate her 'cuz she's some millionaire heiress, who didn't successfully make it into the music industry as herself; 'Lizzy Grant', and claim she's had all sorts of surgery on her face to re-invent herself.
Now although I'm not an advocate of plastic surgery, to each their own, and the fact that people are dissing her because she's kinda re-invented herself instead of sticking to her old guns, well isn't that what a lot of successful artists over the last 30 years have done?! David Bowie and Madonna where notorious for changing their image over time, and most recently, Lady Gaga is the latest global phenomenon to become famous for playing a character completely unlike her pre-fame self.
So personally, I don't get what all the hating and trolling is about. I'm a bit embarrassed with how celebrity obsessed our culture is, quite frankly, and how listening to music is no longer about how amazing a persons voice is or how beautiful the lyrics/composition are, but about the person themselves, what they look like and how they came to be. Seriously? Who gives a shite.
I certainly don't. As long as the beats good and the lyrics are meaningful, then I'm on it. I get how a persons actions can kinda influence how you feel about them and their music, but Lana Del Rays is hardly in an R.Kelly situation where you sit back and think '.....Ew.....Really?'
I can't say that I'm surprised though, we live in a world where it is now easier to judge the lives of these idols and megastars instead of focusing on our own bloody lives and sorting ourselves out!
I remember a while back, there was a whole uproar about Cheryl Cole leaving the UK X-factor to become a judge on the US version, and then she got sacked and blah blah, and I kid you not, for about 3 months, every papers headline was 'Cheryl Cole this' and 'Cheryl Cole that', and around the same time I read an article that a woman in Congo gets raped nearly every minute. I found this out when generally browsing online, not mentioned in the News once, not in one paper, meanwhile Cheryl Coles bloomin' 'Crisi' was shoved down my throat every which way I turned!

So trollers, don't hate on a perfectly good songstress for no real reason, and get over your obsession with celebrities and pick up a bloomin' book.
Here's my fav Lana Del Ray song (it's a remix, bit more upbeat than original)
Is there an artist you particularly dislike for no reason? If so let me know! You might get a whole post dedicated to how wrong you are ;)
