Don’t judge a book by its cover

‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’ (2019) album cover

Lana Del Rey has been an unfairly misunderstood artist as cause of a somewhat rocky rise to fame with her debut lightning-in-a-bottle album Born To Die (an album that has been in the Billboard top 200, for more than 400 weeks!). Back in 2011 she had her first TV appearance on Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately, the performance was met with harsh criticism. Subsequently, that made many listeners and critics in the music world “question” her authenticity as a artist.
