Lana Del Rey is dependable like the sun rising with her ability to create conversation, debate and controversy with her music and this is one of the many reasons music critics and fans adore her.
Some music artists walk close to the edge of controversy with their lyrics, others will avoid creating any type of controversy with their lyrics and then there is the American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey who jumps into the 'lake' of controversy head-first without a life jacket or any regard for playing it safe.
She is again the center of much controversy and debate on social media thanks to a 'leaked' sheet of lyrics that are part of a song on her upcoming album "Honeymoon" in which her lyrics talk about her interest in someone who has a history of violence (The Gloss - May 20).
An interesting aspect of these lyrics from the song is that they address a reality that exists in society as many women will admit to at one time being attracted to a 'bad boy' just like many men are admitting that despite all the controversy created by her lyrics and actions they still find themselves attracted to her like "bees are attracted to honey" but yet when the words come from this artist controversy ensues.
She is receiving praise from some feminists for her song lyrics for their honesty and vulnerability while other music listeners question the content. However, whether a person agrees with the lyrics of her song or disagrees an indisputable fact is that her songs attract attention which leads to fans buying her songs and her name being constantly in the media.
Lana Del Rey, a singer whose fearless lyrics have made her a popular 'lightning rod' in the music industry that her fans and music executives love.
