I just love Lana Del Rey! She’s extremely talented, funny, and absolutely gorgeous! She’s just something else – and that was revealed once again, at her gig in Dublin.
The 26-year-old singer was performing one of the plenora of hits, when one of her fans surprised her by throwing a pair of female pants to the stage – an honor apparently not reserved only to male singers. She took the situation quite well, giggling away as she waved the white undergarments around her head.
The event put a smile on her face for the rest of the night, as she delighted her fans not only by singing, but also hugging them and taking pictures.
Lana, real name Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, looked stylish in a feminine and flirty cream lace dress as she took to the stage on Monday evening. But after the concert, she said that she feels she just doesn’t get the respect she deserves from the music industry.
‘I feel like my work’s important, but I don’t always feel like I get respect for it… when I feel like people don’t like [my] music and that the 10 years I spent making what I made was not for a good reason, that makes me want to drink again.’
‘Feeling like you’re respected among the people who do the same thing you do is incredible and necessary. I don’t believe in the school of hard knocks, although I’ve had them. All that stuff about whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger is so not true. Do you know what makes you stronger? When people treat you and your art with dignity.’
