Lana Del Rey Opens Up On Alcoholism: ‘I Don’t Get Respect For My Work…It Makes Me Want To Drink Again’

Published: Sunday 12th May 2013 by David

While Europe and Asia have taken her sound to impressive commercial heights, Lana Del Rey‘s US run has been modest to say the least.

Currently hovering around the 600,000 units figure- her debut major album ‘Born To Die‘ and its supporting ‘Paradise’ were the basis of her recent discussion with ‘Fashion‘ magazine- which saw her pose for a beach based spread and speak openly on her struggle to secure critical acclaim in the US.

More interestingly though, how this has affected her ongoing battle with alcoholism.

Her words below…

She explained:

I feel like my work’s important, but I don’t always feel like I get respect for it…when I feel like people don’t like [my] music and that the 10 years I spent making what I made was not for a good reason, that makes me want to drink again.”

She went on to add:

“I don’t believe in the school of hard knocks, although I’ve had them. All that stuff about whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger is so not true. Do you know what makes you stronger? When people treat you and your art with dignity.”

Released on May 10th, her spread also saw her share:

“Feeling like you’re respected among the people who do the same thing you do is incredible and necessary.‘If you are born an artist, you have no choice but to fight to stay an artist.”

So, let us know….

Is Lana underrated?

    • Django May 12, 2013

      @ MIMI CAREY.You indeed sound immature and have no taste whatsoever.Lana has one of the finest works out there,but i guess you think( future )can sing and Cheef Keef has something substantial to contribute to today’s music.Educate yourself and evolve friend.

  2. Taylor May 12, 2013

    I really don’t get this girl. She makes nice and pretty melancholy music, and she’s nice to look at.

    But I’m never wowed.

    • Just To Say May 12, 2013

      And yet you’re wowed by Taylor S***?

      • Taylor May 12, 2013

        Sweetheart, that’s my name. It’s a pretty common name.

        Use some basic common sense before you try to come for me.

      Mariah’s Singing Voice is not as strong as before , S*** happens Sweets, Even in your fav’s Vocal Chords.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

      Hey there! I´m a Mariah fan and I like Lana del Rey´s music

  6. Just To Say May 12, 2013

    I like her because shes an artist not just a product.

    • Common Sense May 12, 2013

      She’s also a crybaby. Boohoo if you don’t like my music I’ll become an alcoholic again. What a childish brat.

      • Theresa September 24, 2013

        I do agree that she should not advertize that she wants to start drinking again,but than again if i put a lot of hard work into my songs and people mad fun of me i would get pissed off. SO my advice is that for people who are fans should continue to love Lana and people who hate her should just back off so she doesn’t commit suicide or something. I would. JKJKJKJK

  7. POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) May 12, 2013

    She’s Perfection.

    • Unbiased H** May 12, 2013

      Your perfection! F*** me?

      • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) May 12, 2013

        ha ha.

  8. Jlover May 12, 2013

    Why are Mariah fans always the first to talk s*** yall need to be worried about her square shaped ass losing that job on American Idol… Not fault Mariah couldn’t last more than one season lololol

    • Tiffany22534 May 12, 2013

      B****. Go watch J-ho m***** that child she sleeping with!

      *Walks Away, while my ass is switching & hair is bouncing*

    • Rob May 12, 2013

      Check the sequence of the comments, haters came for Mariah first based soley on someone’s gravi. Don’t start nothing won’t be nothing…

    • JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

      I´m really sorry for you hun. It´s obvious Mariah destroys JLo but let me tell you this: Lana>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>JLo
      (when it comes to music)

    • Common Sense May 12, 2013

      You should be more worried about J.H**’s saggy ass and flop single which will lead to another flop album.

  9. Slaylor Swift May 12, 2013

    She make elevator music gurl next f*** this dirty heaux

    • Unbiased H** May 12, 2013

      B**** WHAT DOES THAT MAKE TAYLORS MUSIC???? TRAILOR TRASH IS A YAWN-FEST GURL AND ALL HER BREAK UP SONGS. SHE GETS THE D AND BREAK UP WITH THE MEN. F****** C*** POLISHER.

  10. nicko May 12, 2013

    thaats sad :(( . these MCarey fans should stop dissing every singer ! Mimi might be the best singer rn but it doesnt mean that the other artists cannot sing ! Lana Del Rey is boring af but shes a GR8 singer.btw, how cme u guys call Nicki a flop because she sold 850K in the US but dont say anything about lana selling only 600k in the US ? smh

    • Tiffany22534 May 12, 2013

      BECAUSE S*** FCE IS EVERYWHERE AND SHE SHOULD BE SELLING MORE THAN 850 copies.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

      Cos Lana del Rey´s promo in the USA has been non existant and because her music is not for the masses. It´s pretty indie. In fact, I would say 600,000 for her is pretty damn good. Especially taking into account her sales in the rest of the world

      • Common Sense May 12, 2013

        If by indie you mean incredibly overproduced and impossible to reproduce live with her less than impressive vocal ability, then yes she’s indie lol.

  11. Jenna May 12, 2013

    Mariah fans seem so bitter and jealous just like their fave. And Taylor fans have no room to talk with their stupid fave and corny music for 12 year olds.

    • Common Sense May 12, 2013

      Mariah fans are more demanding of talent. Lana makes interesting music, but it’s incredibly arrogant of her to expect everyone to like it.

  12. JJFan1814 May 12, 2013

    All the haters are f****** stupid. Let me guess, if she were singing music made for radio or over a dance beat, your names, avi and life would be about Lana right???????

    Her debut sold over 3 million worldwide with no hit single or promo machine. Who does that now these days?

    Young & Beautiful is #13 on itunes, above #Beautiful which screams commercial success. The artistry and the music speaks for itself.

    In other words, LANA IS THE F****** S***. Underdogs always win, I.E. P!NK

    • Neigh-Neigh Leakes May 12, 2013

      Yaaaas hun, you betta tell them!

    • MuiMui May 12, 2013

      JJFAN Preach, shes sharp i like Lana.

  13. Neigh-Neigh Leakes May 12, 2013

    Honey, you are in the music industry.
    If you are that worried about what your peers, the media, and the masses have to say about you then you are in the wrong business. People will always talk about you, celebrity or not!
    With that being said, I love Lana. Her musical style is so different from what we’ve been hearing on the radio so I love the fact that she took a chance with her music.
    I just wish she could grow some confidence. I stay playing the “Born to Die” CD.

  14. Britney Stan May 12, 2013

    Who????

  15. Lou May 12, 2013

    I love Lana!

  16. XtinaaLovee May 12, 2013

    Ill never forget her SNL performance #Horrible

  17. Likica May 12, 2013

    I don’t even like Lana (Blue Jeans is the only song I use from her), but wish her good luck. I can’t at Mariah fans. That’s exactly what I was saying. Their ‘I wish I was the best selling female artist of all time’ fav with stank attitude is always better than everyone. No one can say something bad about her just because she’s a legend? Oh really? She had feuds with many people, so the problem is in her. Also, calling other girls s**** is not nice when we know for who they stan. They can’t deal with the fact that she’s not relevant like she used to be in the past.
    Why don’t you compare her legacy to other legends like Madonna/Michael? Oh, that’s right, she’s a joke compared to them. 0 cultural impact, 0 iconic/memorable videos/performances, she didn’t set any trends in music. If her voice and couple of songs is what makes her such a huge legend then…

    • Rob May 12, 2013

      Likica you are a hypocrite. Saying we put Mariah above everyone and then bring Michael and Madonna in to diminish her? Very few Mariah fans start the drama on here compared to some of the other stans(Navy and Hive) and most of the time we are simply retaliating to some fraudulent shade like what you wrote above. Now, although Mariah’s artistry is very different from Madonna’s and Michaels it can be compared since she surpassed them in #1’s and outsold them both in the 90’s as the best selling artist of that decade. As to her legacy, Mariah’s vocals have been patterened by many singers that came after her and she brought the pop/ hip hop collabos and remix to the forefront. Let me pull up a seat for you to SIT.

      • DOSSOME May 12, 2013

        Don’t mind LIKICA,She stans for JLO,Avril Lavigne and Xtina but thinks Mariah is the irrelevant one

    • Likica May 12, 2013

      Did i ask you about your opinion? No. I don’t care about what you have to say about your overrated diva. If sales/# 1s is the only thing that you can bring, you fail so hard. Overall, Madonna/Michael have sold more albums/singles/records than your fav, inspired more artists not just with their music, but with their iconic videos (fi. moon walk, dancing around burining crosses), performances, look. Feel free _/

      • Rob May 12, 2013

        No, you didn’t ask me, but I still told you and will tell you some more. I didn’t claim that Mariah sold more than them overall(reading comprehension), but she did slay them both for an entire decade. Also, to artistically compare Michael/Madonna to Mariah is ignorant. Anyone with intelligence(which you clearly lack) knows this. They are dancers, performance-driven and visual. Mariah is a singer/songwriter, diva vocalist along the lines of Whitney, Toni and etc. Totally different forms of impact, but all iconic nonetheless. It would take all day to list the receipts of Mimi’s legacy, but I will ask you this question: whose song do year hear played worldwide year after year every Christmas season and will continue to hear for decades to come? Need a hint? Not Michael’s or Madonnas. 🙂

    • JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

      Likica is this annoying girl who thinks she knows it all and is starting to be tripolar a la @poproyalty
      I knew since the beginning but she still fools some people in here.
      She is totally pressed at Mariah´s success now cos her fave has been slayed once more (JLo). But in the past she didn´t get tired of saying Mariah>>>Whitney and the likes cos she is a songwriter, like saying she is so much better than many artists, etc. And now she is among the ones who are overrated for her along with Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston… lol
      But of course for her Kelly Clarkson and Avril Lavigne are legends
      And some of her faves are JLo and Rihanna…. the f****** joke of the century lol

      • Likica May 12, 2013

        Johnny, la gente esta muy loca, wtf? 😀 Love you Too :*

    • Common Sense May 12, 2013

      LOL keep telling yourself that. Mariah has had more VOCAL impact on the industry than both Madonna and Michael put together. Her voice changed the way music was sung forever. Idol shows are pretty much evidence of her impact.

      Keep deluding yourself to control the hatred though lol.

  18. Rita is queen May 12, 2013

    Ariana Grande >>>>> Mariah Carey

    • Tiffany22534 May 12, 2013

  20. Cici Slaaaaays May 12, 2013

    Mariah fans are worst then the beyonce fans so bitter & jealous of every gurl these days. You basic b****** need to stop just like your fav your to OLD to be acting the way you do.

    • Heauxsitdown May 12, 2013

      • TurntUp4Cici May 12, 2013

        Leave my name out of this you b****.

    • Common Sense May 12, 2013

      Jealous of what? We tell it how it is. All the girls these days are nothing compared to the talent Mariah offered and still offers. It is YOU people that settle for such mediocre artists that need to be informed.

  21. Natasha May 12, 2013

    I like this girl, hope she can learn to be ruthless because you have to be to stay standing in that industry. Lambs are always starting s*** for someone who is so ‘untouchable’. Mariah is such a legend why are you so insecure always need to justify her against the younguns doing their thing today?

    • Cici Slaaaaays May 12, 2013

      Yaaaaas b****!!! they stay beefing with the young gurls aka the barbs, csquad, hive, navy, xtina fans, & now lana del reys

      • Natasha May 12, 2013

        Exactly, now Iike Mariah but her fans are too much. You don’t see Janet, Whitney, Madonna fans etc. doing the most like them because they don’t feel the need to!

      • Natasha May 12, 2013

        ***I like

  22. Jay Jay May 12, 2013

    I like Lana! She’s more talented than some of the mainstream acts today like Rihanna. Hell if Rihanna didn’t have her amazing team (management, producers, song writers etc) she will be a prostitue at Atlantic city sucking d***, spredding her legs (which she does now) and twerking for canned goods

    • RiRi Bad May 12, 2013

      b**** bye Rihanna is fursure a better singer than lana del flat mk

    • Queen Barb May 12, 2013

      Shut yo ghetto ass up h**.

  23. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 12, 2013

    90% of the comments are about Mariah. 23 years later and she’s still cemented in the brains of you peasants.
    Death @Likica flip flop ass. I see through basic b****** like you.

    • Queen Barb May 12, 2013

      b**** stfu you lambs stay running yo mouth thats the only reason Mariahs washed up ass is being talked about on here alright f** bag???!

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 12, 2013

        b**** please. Your fan base is all over Mariah’s twitter account talking s*** about her so don’t pretend as if every fan base doesn’t come for other artists

      • Queen Barb May 12, 2013

        Mariah deserves to be dragged she started that s*** with Nicki until she apologizes she’ll get dragged h**

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 12, 2013

        @QUEENBARB

        Nicki is just as much to be blamed as Mariah. Don’t be one-sided!

        My point is that every fan base does that sort of thing so be making it seem like it’s only the Lambs. SMH

      • Common Sense May 12, 2013

        B**** Nicki deserves to be trash talked just for existing. Her “music” does nothing but pollute the integrity of the music world.

    • Natasha May 12, 2013

      But its not for good reason though.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 12, 2013

        It doesn’t matter if it’s for good reason or not.

  24. Queen Barb May 12, 2013

    I love @Lickia she’s a REAL B****. That mutha fucka @SlayriahCarey Is one of the FAKEST BASIC B**** On this site im sick of this moomoo stan

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 12, 2013

      Fake?

      How am I fake? Unlike, Likica I’m a loyal fan. I don’t pretend to like someone and then shade them the next day. I’ve always been honest with my opinions. It’s okay though, say whatever you like…

      • Likica May 12, 2013

        I don’t hate Mariah Carey and I prefer her over Nicki Minaj. She’s a legend, but Lambs are doing it too much these days. Downplaying every artists in Mariah’s favour. When I said that her new song is cute but another generic r&b song all her fans came for me because I said that. Do I have to like it just because it is Mariah and she’s a legend? No. Plus, she was never in my top favs, I just respect her because of her voice (I think that she is the best singer of all time, for me better than Whitney) and some of her songs. Her stans are always shading my fav so I’ll shade her as well.

  25. DOSSOME May 12, 2013

    “Real” lambs don’t go trolling other artists’ post and expressing negativity when the artist in question is of absolutely no relation to Mariah…….Lana Del Rey is a great musician.just started getting into her music 2 weeks ago and i don’t support her sentiments here.I think she should grow a thick skin if she wants to survive this unfair industry

    • Todd May 12, 2013

      !

    • JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

      I know! It´s hilarious everybody is blaming Mariah Carey fans in this post when we are usually one of the most reasonable ones, like you, @MC or @johnvidal LOL
      Now seriously, I´m a Mariah Carey fan and I´ve always said I like Lana del Rey. I also said Born to Die was in my top10 albums of 2012 and that yes the girl can´t perform but she admits it and her artistry is in her songwriting skills and songs (and her voice fits the type of songs she makes perfectly)
      So don´t get what all these people are saying. In fact this fake @likica girl has made fan of me several times for liking Lana del Rey. And now she wants to act like Mariah fans hate everybody and are slamming Lana del Rey?????????? B**** please

  26. MDNA May 12, 2013

    MARIAH CAREY = OVERRATED DIVA

  27. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 12, 2013

    “You don’t see Janet, Whitney, Madonna fans etc. doing the most like them because they don’t feel the need to!”

    That’s because there aren’t many Janet, Whitney and Madonna fans on this blog. If you go on several of Mariah’s youtube videos you’ll see Whitney fans belittling her and the Madonna stans are vicious too so don’t come with that one sided BS.

  28. Love On Top May 12, 2013

    Did I just read someone call Mariah an ‘overrated diva?’ Whats overrated about all of them octave ranges and one of if not THE best vocal techniques in pop music history? Not to mention her music that speaks 1000 words to people. Mariah is in her own lane for her own reasons it has nothing to do with Madonna and Michael. Just because you don’t like the way her fans are don’t go shading Mariah b**** I don’t even stan for her like that but that was one of the stupidest things i’ve ever read!

    • Love On Top May 12, 2013

      Directed to @Likica the ORIGINAL person who called an ‘overrated diva’.

    • Lou May 12, 2013

      Likica says a lot of stupid things, the other day she said she would’ve never thought Rihanna was black because she was standing next to a dark skin dude lol.

  29. Hmmm May 12, 2013

    DEAD at me seeing Mariah Carey more than Lana Del Rey in this post.

    • Dirty GURL May 12, 2013

      Lmao

    i love the lambs

  32. DOSSOME May 12, 2013

    Some of my fellow lambs are just out to make Mariah look bad…1st the Nicki post and now this,SMH..Not here for cyber bulling,total contrast to the #BEAUTIFUL vibe we’ve been promoting this past week

    • CiCi Slaaaaays May 12, 2013

      you guys look very bitter towards the young gurls… is it cause you wish Mariah was still young?

      • Common Sense May 12, 2013

        Nicki is 30 years old. She’s a grown ass woman not some teeny barbie girl. And it’s not bitterness, it’s truth. Some fans can’t take it.

  33. NΛVI May 12, 2013

    Best thing to happen to music since Rihanna, my 2 main b****. Lana these hate mongers don’t understand your artistry but we do and we love it! Don’t let the bastards get you down. Turn it around with another round.

    • GURL May 12, 2013

      pop music that is.

  34. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 12, 2013

    @LIKICA

    I would like if you clarified who these “Lambs” are that you speak of because there are fake stans on this blog (see Cici Slaayys) who go around on posts just to start s*** and get their supposed “fave” dragged.

    I never said that You hate Mariah. I’m just saying that it’s weird that you were stanning (by the looks of your comments) for her and then the other day your shading her heavily.

    And No, you don’t have to like her her new music just because she’s a legend. I don’t like #beautiful and I’ve even said that she tried too hard in it’s music video. I don’t “downplay” other artist, I just state my honest opinion on every artist that I know (including Mariah).

    And you keep talking about Michael and Madonna. What do they have to do with anything? Mariah, Whitney, and Celine have always been compared to Madonna so don’t make it seem as if one is way behind the other because they’ve all done things that the other hasn’t.

    Lastly, you are talking about Mariah having an “attitude” and how she’s always feuding with someone. That’s ridiculous because Maraih has always been focused on her own music and other artist came for her first. Madonna threw shots at her first back in 95 with the “I would rather die than be Mariah” comment. Eminem has mentioned Mariah in several of his songs before mariah released “Obsessed.” Jlo was involved in the stealing of mariah’s ideas for the Glitter album. Hence, Mariah had to make changes to her work, right before it’s release. Whitney and Mariah never had issues, it was just public making comparisons.

    Sorry for the long comment.

    • Likica May 12, 2013

      Okay honey, I’m sorry if I offended you. But really, there are many Lambs (I wouldn’t like to tell their names, you can see in comments) who call Rihanna a s***, call her music trash (btw i know that you support her). Mariah is a great singer/songwriter, no one denies that. Some of her fans are doing it too much sometimes with their downplaying of other artists like Xtina, Beyonce, Rihanna (even though Mariah inspired most of them), now Lana. Janet can’t sing but people consider her a legend, so does it matter if Lana or every other singer doesn’t have a good voice? Maybe I overreacted, I admit it (when I’m mad I can say things that I don’t actually think), but some Lambs need to stop it too (not you though).

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 12, 2013

        It’s Okay honey. I would also like to apologize for my behavior and I’ll try to keep it Cute from now. LOL… I’ll TRY.

      • Heauxsitdown May 12, 2013

        Janet doesn’t have a “big diva voice,” but she CAN sing! Her voice is light, sweet, melodic, distinguishable and poetic. She earned her legendary status by way of her amazing performing skills, trendsetting choreography, acting chops, sensuality, amazing artistry and music, and the fact that she’s a JACKSON didn’t hurt either.

      • Likica May 12, 2013

        @SLAYRIAH
        LoL, oki.

        @HEAUXSITDOWN
        Exactly. But many people call you untalented if you don’t have a great voice like Mariah (this goes for Madonna, Rihanna). Janet has a very strong discography and she’s an amazing dancer, no one can compete with her in that area. I do believe that girls like Beyonce/GaGa/Britney, maybe Rihanna will end up being legends for younger generations in the future. Maybe I’m wrong, we will see it.

      • Heauxsitdown May 12, 2013

        Madonna is the KWEEEEEEN of pop lol. She isn’t a great singer, but she’s EVERYTHING an ARTIST should be! I grew up on a lot of DIANA ROSS, WHITNEY & MADONNA lol!

        I agree. Beyonce, Britney and Rihanna will be legends. Beyonce is almost there. Rihanna may not be the best performer, but she can sing (although she’s inconsistent) and she has a crazy discography already…8 years into the game. Britney has already made her mark in pop culture. She’s a baby legend. I just wish she’d unleash the old Britney (performance wise). I’m on the fence about GaGa. She’s too Madonna & Grace Jones-ish for me. Everything about her screams try-hard & unoriginal. I miss the old Gaga (Pokerface, Paparazzi, Bad Romance, Alejandro, Just Dance).

        A great voice doesn’t make you a star. A great team, good music & star quality does. Some of the greatest vocalists are mega flops because they didn’t possess any of the above!

      • Likica May 12, 2013

        True. Madonna is Madonna. My #1 legend tbh.

        Rihanna is inconsistent and lazy, she needs to hire a vocal coach and work on them vocals. But I do think she has great songs (trashy as well, which artists doesn’t have them?) Britney and Beyonce are the closest to legendary status, Xtina too, many fans call her Legend X. 😀 I used to like GaGa during TF(M) era(s) as well, but I do agree with that. She’ll be there with them. Her success is crazy, 5 years in the game and huge star power, tours, album sales, singles.

        True that last paragraph.

  35. Music Soul Harmony May 12, 2013

    Lickika, ur a joke. U shading MC and comparing her to MJ
    And Madonna but forget that Mj and Madge were dancers and sung
    And made more commercial and dance hits. MC is a commercial
    Entity as well but was known purely as a vocalist. So of course 2 entertainers
    will inspire more ppl when they have commercial success and were stage performers.
    U were the same person shading Whitney a long time ago.
    So it’s okay. I know u and most the navy are used to being inspired by
    uptempo dance songs. nothing wrong with that. But don’t discredit
    Legendary singers who have inspired many singers in the industry.

    • Likica May 12, 2013

      LoL ok, but some fans of these legendary singers need to stop doing the same with other girls like Xtina, Beyonce, Britney, Rihanna, now Lana (even though I don’t like her that much) just because they don’t have big sales/voices like legends. I am pretty sure that many of them will become legends of our generation in the future.

  36. Nivea Stan May 12, 2013

    Since we’re stanning for flops today, may as well join the crew.

    Mariah sounded a mess in Almost Home, BTW.

    • Lil Mo Stan May 12, 2013

      Yaaaas she did a hot shitty mess.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 12, 2013

        Maybe if LIL MO wasn’t so busy stalking Keyshia Cole’s twitter, she could have a platinum album….

  37. Nivea Stan May 12, 2013

    What I will say, though, is that Lana has endorsments with a modeling agency and a sports car manufacturer. B**** some folks can’t even get on the radio, stuck in December, or come back and flop YET Again after a failed Fantasy Ride or whatever. Count your blessings and stop complaining.

  38. Lil Mo Stan May 12, 2013

    Lana Del Who?

  39. Hive May 12, 2013

    Lickia getting DRAGGED fake ass B****

    Dont you Stan for r**** and Kelly Clarkson lmao gtfoh h**

    • Common Sense May 12, 2013

      Sounds like someone is still heated that Kelly out sang the s*** out of Beyonce at Obama’s inauguration…

  40. Heauxsitdown May 12, 2013

    I’m not the biggest Mariah fan, but from what I’ve observed, the other stanbases like to start stuff with the Lambs (mainly the Aguilera stans). They usually only attack when provoked. Mariah is a LEGEND. The Lambs really have no reason to go onto other posts talking ish & comparing the artists to Mariah…just my two cents…

  41. Lolz May 12, 2013

    I like Lana. But let me just say @Mimi Carey is a fake ass Mariah stan who stans more for Rihanna more than Mariah of what Ive seen. Look how the b**** has just disappeared off the post and is not even defending her. Ive seen her shade Mariah in the past. Imo, its a Navy posing as a Mariah stan.

    • Heauxsitdown May 12, 2013

      Like those three Ciara stans. They can’t be real! If I were a Ciara stan, I’d be humble as hell. Almost EVERY stanbase can drag her ass lol.

      You don’t see Brandy stans acting a fool and dragging other artists because they already know…..Brandy has been humbled and so have the Starzz!

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 12, 2013

        DEAD @ The last paragraph.

  42. Heauxsitdown May 12, 2013

    I am living for the Nivea & Lil Mo Stans!!! Lmao!

    • Likica May 12, 2013

      LOL. I like reading your comments, you are always realistic, never unbiased. Who do you stan for?

      • Heauxsitdown May 12, 2013

        I like everyone! Well almost everyone lol.

        I love Beyonce, I think she’s my #1. I love Rihanna, Jessie J, Pink, Katy, Fantasia, Ariana Grande. I also like some of Lana’s music (I haven’t heard a lot of it though).

        It’s hard to post here sometimes because people make you feel like you can only like ONE artist, but I pretty much like anyone who makes awesome music 🙂

      • Likica May 12, 2013

        Yeah, I like all of them, and people like Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne (her old stuff), Madonna, Britney, Christina Aguilera, Justin T, Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue, Shakira.

        I agree with the second part..

      • Heauxsitdown May 12, 2013

        I love Kelly C and Avril lol. Justin T’s new album is the s***, I miss the old Christina 🙁 and I used to love Shakira also. I used to love me some Chris Brown too, but he’s too thugged out for me now.

  43. WILD DEBUTANTE May 12, 2013

    IDGAF if she can sing or not…..sure vocally she’s not great, but her voice is unique and recognizable and it works for her writing style and tone of her music.

    She’s a fantastic writer and her music is just AMAZE. Im not the type of person caught up on someones vocal ability, if I can relate to you and your music and you seem REAL then im down. I love her.

    Only thing I would say about her critical is she should really work on her live performances.

  44. Kitty May 12, 2013

    What in the actual f*** is a Lana del Rey?

    • cookin May 12, 2013

      I love her shutup

  45. MariahIsMusic1 May 12, 2013

    Oh okay b******. I am a mariah carey stan you know why because she shitts on all your faves combined. I’m 18 and I can’t stand the current music! Especially the current musicians Rihanna, Katy they all produce trash. Stupid music actually. I’ll shade Rihanna or Katy or any one else because my fave has 200 million+ Albums sold WorldWide. 18 1s# Diamond albums. She has made a huge impact in this world. Your ugly basic faves are inspired by her soooooo I’ll be humble if your faves could achieve that 🙂 maybe I might be nice! Enough of that who’s lana del Rey? I’m not shading her its just that I’ve never heard of her or even her music. I mean who’s this b****? Irrelevent b****** YAWN

    • Heauxsitdown May 12, 2013

      Babe music taste is subjective. I happen to like most of Rihanna and some of Katy’s music. I like Mariah also, but I will not sit up here and act like she hasn’t produced some garbage ass music herself.

  46. mc the place to be! May 12, 2013

    i like lana point blank period #lamb

    • Nivea Stan May 12, 2013

      Cookie, or Mooriah’s diet plan as a reward?

  47. MariahIsMusic1 May 12, 2013

    You can’t compare Rihanna stupid songs to Mariah’s legendary songs b****. You just can’t

    • cookin May 12, 2013

      No rihanna sings WAYYY better than that whispering cow.

  48. rihking May 12, 2013

    Wait wait wait wheres rosie? EXPOSED! ROSIE IS AN UNDERCOVER BEYONCE STAN WHO PUTS LANA DELRAY AS HER AVI TO MAKE IT SEEM LIKE SHE STANS FOR HER WHEN IN ALL ACTUALITY SHE DOESN’T.So just remember whenever y’all are trying to diss USER ->ROSIE just drag beyonce not lana. Dumb ass b**** thinks she foolin h***.smh

    • Lou May 12, 2013

      Or maybe she just has a life and doesn’t sit on TGJ all the time.

      • rihking May 12, 2013

        But she’s only leaving comments on BEYONCES post never her claimed to be stan lana delrays post EVER! I’ve noticed the pattern.

      • Lou May 12, 2013

        Mkay, nice to see you’re stalking her. She knows a lot about Lana though and goes off for her so I believe she does stan for her aswell as Beyoncé. But whatever.

    • RIHKING May 12, 2013

      Wonder why you care so much ???? iknowwwww

      • Lou May 12, 2013

        I don’t.

  49. MariahIsMusic1 May 12, 2013

    Only people I prefer in this generation are beyonce, lady gaga, eller varner, Adele, Justin T, Usher,Bruno Mars . They’re very talented but they wiLl never reach godriah’s success.

    • Casanova May 12, 2013

      B**** no one care gaga music is straight garbage

  50. MariahIsMusic1 May 12, 2013

    *leaves* “rihanna sings better than mariah”

  51. BarbieWorld May 12, 2013

    The Lambs strike again. So insecure and so pathetic. Always attacking the new girls like they did to Christina.

  52. Jlover May 12, 2013

    Rosie better come read these mooriah Stans they so pressed

  53. Lana Del Slay May 12, 2013

    I can’t believe what I’m seeing, I should have know how shady you salty b****** were when you were shading Nicki. Please leave Lana alone, she doesn’t trouble any of the other girls and is nice to everyone, except Gaga.

    • Misty May 12, 2013

      Lana is getting dragged gurl … Where’s @Rosie?

    • NickiSaidDis May 12, 2013

      Yes sister, this is what we’ve all been saying. They are just as mean as their linebacker fave.

  54. NickiSaidDis May 12, 2013

    Hmmmmmmmm hmmmmm and hmmmmm once more. Do you see girls see what we went through now?

  55. Todd May 12, 2013

    Dafuq yall? I love Mariah , but i would never come hatin or bringin her up on another artists post .

  56. Lotus May 12, 2013

    I feel so bad for the Lana Stans the lambs are evil

  57. Born To Die May 12, 2013

    Why is it that lanas last album outsold Mariahs

    • QueenCeline May 12, 2013

      That’s WHY they came at her today. They’re mad because out of all the girls she is the biggest flop TODAY even though she used to be the queen in the 90s. Celine would never.

  58. BionicLotus May 12, 2013

    I can’t wait until Rosie gets here. You high cholestrol Lambs have played your last hand TODAY.

  59. Born To Die May 12, 2013

    Born To Die >>>>> Any Mariah album

    Tbh

    Mark my words when I say the Lambs will come for Ariana next.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

      Leave my beloved Celine Dion alone b****. I´m sure you´re not a fan of hers. Always hating on other true greats

        Let that be last time you call me a b**** and let that be the last time you question my love for Claudette.

  61. KatyKat xo May 12, 2013

    Lmao wheres this b**** @ROSIE yall? Ya gurl Lana getting dragged by the lambs bahahahahaha!!

    You be talking s*** bout everyone else fav but know ur fav getting dragged yo ugly ass is no were to be found lmao hilarious you weak b**** stay in hiding

  62. BitchyBey May 12, 2013

    I am so ashamed of the Lambs today.

  63. JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

    Damn, give me a break Mariah is owning all posts these last week lol
    Anyway, Lana girl, don´t be so hard on you, you have art, I like you and you have many fans around the world. I mean, even her USA sales are not bad at all for the type of music she makes.
    American, Summertime Sadness and many more have been my s*** for many months. She is talented as a songwriter and her voice is perfect for the music she makes, she admits she is not a live performer. So it´s all good
    Some talentless girls fans are pressed and want to make it seem as if Mariah Carey fans are the ones trashing Lana or the rest when they are the ones living in TGJ to just hate and shade everybody else, when their faves are talentless!!!

    • TaylorWins May 12, 2013

      Who is talentless? Name names b****.

      • JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

        You know who. I don´t want to give names cos this Lana del Rey post will become pure crap.
        I just support Lana´s ability to make songs and defend Mariah. But you have to know who is truly talentless when it comes to everydamn thing

  64. Chelsea Del Rey May 12, 2013

    These lambs must not know that I am a tiger and I’m ready to eat them for my supper tonight. Tonight, I SAY!

  65. JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

    Damn are you f****** serious????? lol Lambs are not doing a damn thing now. All these pressed people commenting on here just want to hate on Mariah and are using Lana (when they usually trash her). So pathetic. Pressed at Mariah´s success for damn sure
    Go Lana del Rey. Do your thing

    • HausMuthaAdele May 12, 2013

      Success?! Don’t make me p*** myself with the laughter sis. EVERYBODY is outselling Mariah in today’s world and that’s why she had to use Clear to sell her song.

      Could Mariah tour the world today and sell out arenas like Celine, Rihanna and Bey can? No she cannot and so you take out your anger on the new girls like you did to Aguilera.

      • JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

        To Aguilera???????????? See? You are a bunch of fake b******. I´ve found myself often defending Aguilera these last few months everytime the hate has been insane towards her in this blog and for no damn reason. Poor girl. most people on here have talked s*** about her and you come for me when I haven´t? B**** bye
        We´ll see in the future if it´s true you are so good and unbiased like you are claiming to be in this post
        All I know is b****** like @MC or @DOSSOME are among the few sane and respectful ones on here. And you come for the lambs?????? Give me a break

  66. TaylorWins May 12, 2013

    Mariah knows how to drag everything BUT a diet plan 2bh.

    • Common Sense May 12, 2013

      She looks fantastic compared to that albino stick insect fave or yours. No boobs, no ass, no curves, no personality, no talent that’s pretty much Taylor Swift.

  67. BlackOut2.0 May 12, 2013

    I am going to laugh so hard if Mariah’s new album doesn’t sell over 300k. I really will.

    • Common Sense May 12, 2013

      I’ll laugh even harder if Britney is still selling when/if she gets to her 14th studio album.

  68. VisionOfMimi May 12, 2013

    I see the Queen has you lesser stans pressed.

    • Lana Del Slay May 12, 2013

      Pressed? Like the 15 panini’s Mariah has for breakfast every morning.

      • Bow Down May 12, 2013

  69. ShadeNOShade May 12, 2013

    WHO IS SHE ?
    I NEVER HEARD OF HER.
    I GUESS SHE BETTER KEEP ON DRINKING CAUSE . . .

  70. JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

    Damn, this has to be the same person using every single artist out there to just hate Mariah on a Lana del Rey post! Pathetic
    Lots of people are saying they like Lana del Rey but they can´t read. Ok

    • NickiSaidDis May 12, 2013

      That’s what you want to believe. I don’t think the people shading Mariah even like Lana but i think they’re fed up of the entitled teas the Lambs stay giving the rest of us.

    • Glamuilera May 12, 2013

      Typical Lamb mentality. You strike and then act surprised when people strike back. I’ve dealt with this on the other forums for years.

    • Holy Hive May 12, 2013

      You lambs talk crap about everyone don’t be surprised that alot of people on here dislike Mariah and her messy insecure sloppy lambs

    • JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

      B**** please you are the same person using three different stan bases to shade Mariah Carey. I didn´t strike a damn thing. I´ve always declared my “love” for Lana del Rey´s music. Since January 2012 when she released her Born to Die album. So shut up and move on. Why are u pressed?

      • Heauxsitdown May 12, 2013

        Lmao its so obvious that it’s the same person. I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the Ciara stan too.

  71. Holy Hive May 12, 2013

    Looks like people are feed up with the lambs

  72. Holy Hive May 12, 2013

    Atleast Lana doesn’t need Payola to sell like Mariah does.

    • Common Sense May 12, 2013

      You’re right. All she needs is unwarranted hype, a try-hard mystique persona, and slow depressive songs that all sound the same.

  73. the real xoxo May 12, 2013

    Your music is mediocre. don’t cry when people speak the truth.

    • Bow Down May 12, 2013

    Cant wait for my gurl Rosie to get here & drag these annoying hateful bitter lambs!!!!!!

    • JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

      Stop it! It´s not the LAMBS dragging Lana del Rey. There are plenty of them from other stan bases

    • Rosie May 12, 2013

      I’m here, b******.

  75. Vanilla May 12, 2013

    Wow, so many Mariah haters here today. Poor unfortunate souls.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 12, 2013

      LOL here we go again with the crazy likes and dislikes. I don´t know if it´s a pressed JLO stan or a pressed Nicki stan or TGJ themselves. But it´s getting old
      It´s clearly someone doing it and they have destroyed a Lana del Rey post and made it about hating Mariah

  76. AlexandraIsPretty May 12, 2013

    Gworls, I just came back from Church. What happened here? Why all the drama?

  77. HotSexWithMinaj May 12, 2013

  84. Rosie May 12, 2013

    MIssed this post because I was out having a life but DEATH @ stans of people 1000x less talented and respected than Lana saying anything about respect, especially Rihfund stans. I don’t see anyone looking up to her, the public views her as a h** who can’t sing and depends on Chris Brown for publicity. And Nicki stans, your fave is the sole reason American Idol is dead ratings-wise and explain to me why Roman Reloaded has sold only SLIGHTLY more copies as Born To Die in the US and why Lana has outsold her discography worldwide? Why Nicki’s clothing line can only get to Kmart? For someone who’s a “big worldwide female rap superstar!!!1” that’s pathetic. Lana is irrelevant according to most of you but is really on the same league worldwide as most of you f***’ faves.

    • Lou May 12, 2013

      Death at everyone waiting for you though! Go INNNN!

  85. Rosie May 12, 2013

    And I forgot the Lambs. Tell me again why is Young & Beautiful above #Uglee on iTunes? Why has lana’s album outsold all of Moo’s since 2005/06? Why Moo is a “legend” yet has been reduced to a flop American Idol judge? Please explain.
    Off to having a life again. I’ll see you thirsty SKANKS in a couple.

    • NickiSaidDis May 12, 2013

      Miss b****, it’s high time I straightened you the f*** out. We were all defending Lana against the lambs but you wanna come up in here throwing shade at the Queen.

      I never wanted to get ugly with you so apologise or face the full extent of my wrath 2bh.

    • Common Sense May 12, 2013

      The answer to your question is because Young and Beautiful is the single of the soundtrack to “The Great Gatsby” which will no doubt come in at #1 this weekend.

  86. Rosie May 12, 2013

    Like seriously, go celebrte your mother like I’ve been doing most of the day.
    Oh, I forgot, no one gives a s*** about you thirsty F******.

  89. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 12, 2013

    LOL @ this Nicki stan. well ready to team up with other fan bases to drag Mariah and eventually Rosie spilled the tea all over you and your dusty fave.

  93. HoneychildPlease May 12, 2013

    The fact that nobody had to end this b**** career was funny enough! All she had to do was go on SNL, and commit career suicide…No talent ass tramp!

  94. HoneychildPlease May 12, 2013

    Nobody respects this b****, and never will…She drink yourself to death h** nobody won’t miss your ass…I heard more talented ass people on the subways in NYC…

  99. Ropeburn May 13, 2013

    No offense but this girl needs to grow a backbone. Show business is not for the weak at heart. You might make a hit or two but you wont last if you’re going to cry or guzzle vodka every time someone says a critical word about you. Take a page from Madonna’s playbook and just stop giving a s*** what the critics say.

    I’m not going to refute anybody’s opinions about the amount of talent Mariah Carey has over anyone else in the industry. However, I know I can only speak for myself and the other’s whom I know love Lana. Lana’s fans (including myself) love her because she’s sings about events in her life that are relatable to our lives. Her songs are often confused with feelings of sadness but to make the assumption would only be superficial because she’s really singing about memories and nostalgia, not depression. Yes, her voice isn’t conventional to say the least but we love it because of that very reason, because it’s deep and raspy tune may remind some of us of that of Janis Joplin’s or even Nancy Sinatra’s. That’s the kind of aesthetic she’s shooting for and we love it because it’s absolutely regal! Not to mention the style in which her music is produced/composed makes it even more climatic and modern with great beats!

    I love Lana del rey, I think she’s very talented and her music is different from the rest of the crap I hear on american radio. No wonder del rey isn’t popular in the states…we’re too busy listening to Garth brooks and crap like that

    In all retrospect to be “wowed” by lana del rey you must understand where shes coming from. Personally, I love her music; its beautiful and inspiring and its a shame not many people in the U.S are big fans. If anything shes a product of old true american music; however original and riveting at the same time. xoxo

    Lana is most definitely under appreciated.

    Her lyrics and music is extraordinary and moving. It drives me insane that people in today’s pop media get more respect and rep than what Lana gets. She is truly an artist and she doesn’t conform to all the b******* that some of the other stars do. I have mad respect for her and I pray to God she continues doing what she does. Hands down favorite artist, as real as it gets.
