Lana Del Rey (From a Pseudo-hater Perspective)!
Do you know about her, what do you think of the MUSIC! What impact does status, style, looks, and perception play in the modern music industry. Personally I think she is sub-par with a couple of nice tracks out there but in general I can't connect with this type of music. A lot of people, even Panda Bear, like her music (somewhere between Liz Phair and hip hop beats with strings, etc.) and topped off with cliche lyrics and lyrics about how being beautiful and rich makes her want to die. Also she has lyrics about how she wants to be a "bad girl" drinking, smoking, and partying late and what not, all stuff a I can't relate to (and others maybe can't relate). Anyway what do you think? Also, I hope the indie pop community in general, if one exists, doesn't go in this direction (just my opinion) because it almost is going towards that top 40 stuff.
