Oh! Summertime Sadness!
Lana Del Rey has FINALLY explained her cryptic tweet from last week about her “farewell project,” a short film called Tropico.
While it doesn’t sound like Lana is leaving music forever, gurlfriend is in major need of a half-year’s break from the fame game, saying:
“I don’t think [my current career’s] been conducive to writing, being on the road and all that. I don’t really feel inspired to write at all, but beforehand, when I was in Brooklyn for nine years… I was kind of a night owl and just walked around and met weird people. That was me picking up life experiences and meshing them into my own. That really did it for me. Actually, Lollapalooza is my last live commitment. It’s too bad ‘cause it’s been such a long time since the last record. I really feel like I need six months to live again, time to be like, normal or abnormal. I don’t have anyone writing anything for me. It’s such an internal well and if it’s not full, it’s just not full.”
Since Lollapalooza was earlier this month, seems like Lana may have said farewell even BEFORE she tweeted it.
We look forward to Tropico’s release (whenever it is), but the music world will be a Dark Paradise til Lana returns.
But we can’t WAIT to hear what she writes during her hiatus! Good luck, LDR!
