Request for adding additional content[edit]

Under “2015 Honeymoon” there is little information as to why she created her record Honeymoon. I found an article that would add insight and dialogue from Lana Del Rey as to what place in her life she was at when writing the songs for Honeymoon. The article states that Lana Del Rey said “I guess the first thing that was going on was that I really wanted to have one more record out that was able to speak for me, even if I wasn’t in a place where I felt like speaking for myself” (A Letter from Lana, 2). In the beginning of the second paragraph, after the sentence “In June 2014, she said “I have this idea for this record called Music to Watch Boys To, so I’m just kind of thinking about that and what that would mean”. [130] Del Rey later confirmed in an interview with Billboard that her new record would be entitled Honeymoon. [131],” the quote along with the sentence below should be placed.

“Lana was once asked in an interview what her frame of mind was when she wrote Honeymoon, she answered “I guess the first thing that was going on was that I really wanted to have one more record out that was able to speak for me, even if I wasn’t in a place where I felt like speaking for myself”.

The NME is referenced on the page of the album, which is very detailed. Personally I do not see the need to add further material here. Also, the sentence "Lana was once asked in an interview what her frame of mind was when she wrote Honeymoon" is vague. What interview is that referring to? And "frame of mind" is rather non-descript.

Born/Raised, NYC or Lake Placid[edit]

The lede of the article has her born and raised in NYC, but then the text of the article says that she was raised in Lake Placid, and her origins are listed as Lake Placid as well. Can we straighten this out? 2A02:C7D:CA32:CC00:9F5:E4C4:71C9:888D (talk) 22:01, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Lana no longer top streamed artist[edit]

Hi, Lana has sinced faded much. She's no longer top streamed artist on Spotify. Please let's remove that post.

"As of 2015, Del Rey is the most streamed female artist on Spotify in the United States, and the fourth worldwide:

Photo[edit]

I propose changing the photo to File:Lana Del Rey "Burning Desire" Video 2013.jpg or File:Lana Del Rey at the Echo Awards 2013.jpg. The photo in use at the moment is relatively low quality, outdated, and (in my opinion) looks very amateur. Thanks.

I do not see either picture currently featured in the article? I would argue that there are currently enough included on the page. Karst (talk) 18:16, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
@Karst: I am referring to the main infobox photo. TheKaphox T 21:10, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
I do not see any reason to change the current photograph as featured in the infobox. Karst (talk) 16:31, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Excessive detail[edit]

This article has been padded out with trivial information, such as specific dates for release of promotional announcements by closely connected sources, inclusion of information identified as rumours in the sources, etc. Can't some of this be removed, so that the article focuses more on the actual albums, concerts, and other real events, which are mostly sourced to professional reporters and critics?—Anne Delong (talk) 02:11, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
