Francis Bean Isn't Impressed With Lana Del Rey's Suicidal Act

Lana Del Rey took her profitable act of sad core Americana too far recently and said she wished she was dead. Maybe acting sad all the time actually makes the singer unhappy, or maybe that too is all a charade. Who knows, but what is clear is that Frances Bean, daughter of Kurt Cobain, one of Del Rey’s fallen heroes,… » 6/23/14 6:45pm 6/23/14 6:45pm

Female celebrities' images are easy to tarnish

Recently, Lana Del Rey stuck her foot in her mouth and she knew it. She admitted to dreaming of an early death, not a surprising musing of a woman whose music centers around all sorts of dark tropes of early loss and passionate love with difficult men. But the press wasn't so enamored of this interview and she was… » 6/22/14 4:51pm 6/22/14 4:51pm

Lana Del Rey Wishes She Was Dead And Is Somehow Mad About It

Lana del Rey has been doing a flurry of press in recent weeks to promote the release of her (excellent) latest album Ultraviolence, and, in typical Lana del Rey fashion, the press tour has been characterized by Lana del Rey saying ridiculous shit. The latest round of Lana vs. The World involves an interview with a… » 6/20/14 4:40pm 6/20/14 4:40pm

More pictures from the possible nuptial of the future (current?) Mr. and Mrs. West have surfaced. Among them are shots of guests en route, guests arriving, and a very special photo of the sky from Kim with the caption "little angels are blessing us." Also: Lana Del Rey is rehearsing!

Selena Gomez Got All Artsy (And Naked) On Her Instagram

Selena Gomez posted a very artistic and ambiguous photo of herself being sacrificed to a curtain monster frolicking in the sun on her Instagram yesterday and the internet erupted in idle speculation about what it could all mean. Is Selena finally taking control of her career and shedding her good-girl image? Is she… » 3/22/14 11:30am 3/22/14 11:30am

New Maleficent Trailer Features Lana Del Rey's 'Once Upon a Dream'

Disney dropped a bigger, better Maleficent trailer during the Grammys, this one featuring an atmospheric (or, if you're feeling less generous, droning) cover of "Once Upon a Dream" by none other than Lana Del Rey. She sounds like a old-timey gramophone abandoned in a forbidden forest. But it works! » 1/27/14 10:35am 1/27/14 10:35am

Dear Lana Del Rey: You Are Not a Latina Gangsta Girl, So Cut the Shit.

Sadcore singer Lana Del Rey recently released “Tropico,” a 27-minute art film/music video, and the first image I saw was of the white artist dressed as a woman bearing many of the stylistic hallmarks associated with Latino gangster culture (right down to the teardrop tattoo). Now, was that a polite way to start my day? » 12/10/13 7:40pm 12/10/13 7:40pm

Scream Like It's 2001: Timberlake Reuniting With *NSYNC at VMAs

Justin Timberlake will reunite with late '90s asterisk pirates *NSYNC for a performance at the VMAs, which I like to imagine they strong-armed him into. ("What, you're too good for us now just because you got rid of your Instant Ramen-looking hair and married the hot girl from Summer Catch?") But they aren't rushing… » 8/20/13 9:00am 8/20/13 9:00am

Hear Lana Del Rey's Contribution to the Jam-Packed 'Gatsby' Soundtrack

Remember Lana Del Rey? She's the chanteuse who twirled, twirled, twirled as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live before her debut album had even been released. She didn't do a super great job at the time, but then her album was released and people were all either "hate it with the fire of a thousand suns" or… » 4/23/13 12:40pm 4/23/13 12:40pm

Reese Witherspoon's Sorry She Was a Bratty Jerk While Getting Arrested

Reese Witherspoon totally regrets that she Tracy Flicked out on the cop who pulled her and husband Jim Toth over around midnight on Friday, booking Toth for a DUI and Witherspoon for disorderly conduct (Reese yelled "Do you know my name?" at the cop and claimed that he was not a real police officer). Above, find her… » 4/22/13 9:00am 4/22/13 9:00am
