Lol I think that’s just what being a huge fan for a while does to you. You begin to acquire knowledge naturally from reading things, talking to other fans, watching interviews, etc. Being a fan and running a blog dedicated to her is a daily thing for me and a big part of my life.
I’m so happy right now omg. I didn’t expect to see her, I wasn’t even checking that list for her to be honest. I never imagined this would happen. I knew people were rooting for Young and Beautiful, but I figured it wouldn’t get a nom. So the fact that it did, plus Paradise (which holy shit, is a major surprise and bonus) is making me all giddy and excited right now. It’s about time, these noms are long overdue. Finally.
I do have a habit of thinking most award shows are insanely stupid (usually due to who they nominate) but I know this will make Lana really happy. Especially with how she thinks when it comes to America and the media here etc…I feel like it’ll at least put a big smile on her face and make her a feel a bit better about things that have been said in the past. So I’m really happy for her.
Congratulations to Lana Del Rey for her very first Grammy nominations! Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Song Written for Visual Media.
This is a really hard question, her music is really unique…especially if you include unreleased stuff. You’ll see people describe her as pop, alternative, indie, and sadcore.
I, myself, never know what I should say when people ask me what genre she’s in because she’s a mix of everything and something new.
