In a new feature for magazine L’Official, Lana Del Rey answers questions from an impressive group of fans including Grimes, Kim Kardashian West, Courtney Love, Stevie Nicks, and more in a feature called ‘Groupie Love’.
Kim Karsashian-West asked Lana what she would be if she wasn’t working in music and discovered Del Rey would be “a doula, or maybe working with kids” and also found out that the pop-star can’t cook.
Super-fan Courtney Love cruelly made Del Rey reveal her favourite songs of all time off the top of her head, which is : “Hole, “Celebrity Skin.” The Flamingos, “I Only Have Eyes for You.” Migos, “Bad and Boujee.” A$AP Rocky, “L$D.” Simon & Garfunkel, “Scarborough Fair.” Janis Joplin, “Mercedes Benz.” The Eagles, “Hotel California.” Lou Reed, “Perfect Day.” Eclectic.
On a different note, Grimes was asking the big questions such as “What do you think about artificial intelligence? Do you think it will be good or bad for humanity?” to which Lana replied “I think it’s just a natural progression of where technology has been leading to up until now. I think the advancements of AI will be benefits. I don’t think it will get to the point where we are boycotting the robot community because they’ve taken all of our jobs.”
She added: “That said, I did hear that Amazon’s just become the first company to deliver via drone, which I’m very excited but also nervous about, because I’ve had such bad experiences with drones. So, don’t take my word for it.”
Sean Ono Lennon asked Lana if there’s a connection between the decline of pop music culture and civilization in general and received this reply : “Probably, but I don’t really know what it is. I think really, there’s a rise of sociopathy and narcissism, and a mental health crisis. Everyone’s kind of becoming aware of the fact that that needs to be fully addressed. Maybe there is a link. It’s probably related to consciousness.”
