Roth's Lana Del Rey Rape Scene: 'So Sick, It's Been Locked in a Vault'

[Updated] In 2013, Eli Roth, director of gore and anxiety-horror films like Hostel and Grindhouse, directed a characteristically sick video for Marilyn Manson that featured Lana Del Rey in a rape scene.

Iggy Azalea Falls Victim to the SNL Curse

It's not just Halloween: television sound stages are notoriously difficult for musicians to navigate, as they are cavernous and tinny with acoustics suited for conversations and applause, and Saturday Night Live's soundstage is, notoriously, the worst of any of them.

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

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
