** She has claimed to love "the greats of every genre", citing Music/KurtCobain of Music/{{Nirvana}} and ElvisPresley [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTeNqydC1AU (about whom she even wrote a song!)]] as inspirations.

* AlbumTitleDrop: In "Honeymoon", "Ultraviolence" and "Born To Die", obviously.

to:

* AlbumTitleDrop: In "Honeymoon", "Ultraviolence" and "Ultraviolence", "Born To Die", and "Lust For Life", obviously.


Added DiffLines:

** The song "Old Money" is a remastered, re-written version of a song Rey wrote, called "Methamphetamines". While the lyrics are largely different, a few lines mirror the original.


Added DiffLines:

** "Music to Watch Boys To", the line "Nothing good can stay, like love or lemonade" in the bridge, may be reference to the line "Crying tears of gold, like lemonade" in "Ultraviolence"'s bridge.


Added DiffLines:

** "Cherry" is "Lust For Life"'s adaptation of this trope, as well as "Heroin".

* CastingCouch: Literally has a song called "Put Me In A Movie." "Hit & Run" is centered around this trope. "Put Your Lips Together", too -- in a much less spritely manner.

** According to WordOfGod, "This Is What Makes Us Girls" -- a song about a young woman falling in and out of the wrong side of the track -- is autobiographical.

* {{Lolicon}}:
** "Put Me In A Movie".
** A few of her various TeacherStudentRomance songs, as well.
** Despite its title, "Lolita" doesn't really touch on matters of age -- but the implications are definitely there if you squint.

Lana Del Rey (born June 21, 1985) is an American IndiePop singer and model.
