the first time i heard the song 'video games' by lana del ray, i immediately liked it. i loved her voice, the lyrics, and the melody--simple. it wasn't until i started doing a little research for this post that i discovered the so-called controversy surrounding lana del ray, aka lizzie grant.
apparently lana came out with an album years back that had no commercial success and has since come back with a new sound, new look, or new gimmick, according to many music critics. i didn't think that was really anything new in the music business. katie perry anyone?
but whether or not an artist is credible, and/or is pretending to be something that they are not, it does affect my opinion of their music. should it? what do you think?
and ps--i do like katie perry:)
