Lana Del Rey: from acclaim to backlash in 15 minutes

Saturday, 28 January, 2012

Her pout has been described as “a model for the entire plastic surgery industry of greater Los Angeles”. And that’s only one example of the kind of hate that’s now unloading on poor, rich, talented, lovely Lana Del Rey since she released her brand new album yesterday. What particularly upsets the Occupy class is that Lana is as privileged financially as she is genetically. You see, dad’s a millionaire whose money comes from one of the modern wonders of capitalism: web domain investing. Worst of all, though, for our puritanical champions of purity and authenticity, Lana’s real name is Lizzy Grant. This “revelation” is available to all on Wikipedia.
