‘Off To The Races’ star Lana Del Rey teams up with Jaguar to endorse their new F-Type automobile, via the brand new video for the cut- ‘Burning Desire‘.
As far as the song goes, we’d say it wins on a melodic tip but fails to wow creatively- with Lana’s subject matter going no further than the realm of hopeless romanticism. Sure, while it makes for a good listen, one would hope her forthcoming sophomore LP sees her tackle new thematic ground.
Either way, we love the video- so check it out below…

As far shoots go, very few can say they take snaps as stunning as those served by Lana Del Rey.
That point was proved once again this week when her cover for Elisabeth Dijan‘s ’Numero Tokyo’ surfaced online, ahead of its official March 2013 release.
Marking one her best covers to date, the contralto’s spread in the magazine precedes the release of her UK #1 album, ‘Born To Die‘ and its supporting EP, ‘The Paradise Edition’.
Peep her in action below…

Before he’s set to dominate the 2013 Grammy Awards Ceremony next February, Frank Ocean extends his 2012 winning streak this week with another ‘Channel Orange‘ related nod.
However, whilst most-if not all- of the awards he’s picked up this year have seen him celebrated for his craft, his latest achievement sees him awarded for his- well- sex appeal.

As evidenced by the rant of ‘Believe’ beau Justin Bieber‘s manager, it’s pretty safe to say that some camps are still up-in-arms about the 2013 Grammy nominations unveiled last night.
Indeed, every year sees some scorned team or artist supporter feel “cheated” due to an absence from the nominations tally (see: Jill Scott’s rant last year), but this year marks a noted difference in that A) the male domination of categories, B) the absence of hip-hop and R&B from major categories, and C) the glaring, 2011-instated removal of “gender-specific” categories.
With only acts who released material from September 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012 eligible for consideration, the wealth of overlooked talent is earning a collective side-eye from many-a-music lover. Just ask fans of Brandy & Monica‘s ‘It All Belongs To Me’, Mary J. Blige, Lana Del Rey, Madonna, and, of course, Nicki Minaj & Justin Bieber…

Oh to be a fly on the wall at the ‘Chateau Marmont’ this week.
For, in what makes the stuff ‘stan fantasies’ are made off, the hotel reportedly played host to a slumber party thrown by ‘Mean Girls’ actress Lindsay Lohan, attended by Interscope sisters Lady GaGa and Lana Del Rey.
Snapped leaving the hotel yesterday, a considerably ‘tamer’ GaGa hinted at the night’s events through a series of Tweets, which she – quite interestingly- deleted soon after publishing them.
