Lana Del Rey scored one of the season's surprise hits with her melancholic Born To Die anthem, "Summertime Sadness" (counterintuitively spun into a standard EDM remix by Cédric Gervais). But, unlike most celebrities, she didn't milk her moment in the sun. Instead, she went into stealth mode, enjoying her summer months largely under the public's radar. While the enigmatic artist has spent weeks in creative incubation, LDR fans have been desperate to know what's next on their heroine's horizon. After all, there have been murmurs of everything — from to a new, "organic" album, to film roles, to even...retirement. Say it ain't so!
Perhaps the chanteuse herself will shed light on the mysteries. She made a rare media appearance for Nylon's November cover story, "At Home With Pop's Biggest Enigma." Hopefully, we'll get closer to the truth on those burning questions — like when "Tropico," her much anticipated short film, will finally be released and if it really is a "farewell project." Then again, this is Lana we're dealing with, and there's a much better chance she'll simply respond to any queries in the form of an esoteric riddle. Keep pop culture on its toes, girl! Someone has to.
P.S. Kudos to whoever decided Lana should embody the brooding elegance of The Crow era for this shoot. That choker? An A+ alone. (Nylon)
