Ask Babe: On Not Giving Shits (With LDR)


What’s your take on the video for “Ride” by Lana Del Rey? I think it’s fucking brilliant, but I’d like a professional opinion.



Fan Del Rey,

I’m about as unclear on Lana Del Rey a I am on bangs. One minute she’s completely doable, then the next minutes she’s naked on another motorcycle and I want to silently cry about it. BUT, I’ve turned a corner once again because with her new video and song Lana has proven to us that she truly does not give one single fuck and I can relate to that. I guess she’s going to make a career of being that girl that other girls just can’t stand.

Here are a few of my fave lines from the spoken word piece she preforms like a psycho in her new video:

“I was in the winter of my life and the men I met along the road were my only summer.” (I’ve actually said this to an ex bf once when he accused me of cheating on him with his dad. He was right, I did, and his dad was my only summer.)

 “There’s no reason talking to people who have a home.” (I love homeless people too, they understand layering better than me even.)

 “I was going to be the other woman.” (Commitment.)

 “It was a fire for every experience and an obsession for freedom that terrified me to the point that I couldn’t even talk about it.” (Next season psycho moment. Love. Love love.)

 “I am fucking crazy.” (No comment.)
