Lana Del Rey has released the new cover art for her second single, "Blue Jeans", and she's becoming a trending topic yet again...

Lana tweeted, "Video coming soon," and posted this shot of her lying down with a tattooed man's hand around her neck. While he appears to be checking her pulse rather than strangling her, the profane ink on his knuckles certainly isn't going unnoticed!

Despite her shaky performance on Saturday Night Live earlier this year, Lana's first album, Born To Die, debuted on the Billboard music charts at number two, selling 77,000 copies in its first week. We do love Lana, but is this cover art a little too much?

We're sooo confused about Lana Del Rey -- she has such great outfits in her music videos, but when it comes to her street style, she's not exactly nailing it.

We snapped the "Video Games" songstress leaving the Wiltern after the Guns N' Roses concert over the weekend with her midriff exposed, and earlier in the evening we snapped her shopping in Hollywood in an all green ensemble. Hmm, maybe she does need a stylist!

Lana Del Rey Has Her Mouth Full In The Latest Issue Of Lovecat

lana-del-rey-lovecat-230.jpgLana Del Rey covers the latest issue of Lovecat Magazine, and the 25-year-old "Blue Jeans" singer chats about what she spends her millionaire father's money on.

“My biggest indulgence is being an artist," Lana proclaims. "I still think it’s beautiful that I make music for a living. The music videos that I make myself are expensive and it takes money to clear all the copyrights."

"My second indulgence is diamonds," Lana continues. "I have a jeweler in Brooklyn named Uri and he makes me all my custom gold and diamond pieces—grills, triple rings, etc.”

Good thing her daddy made all that dough from investing in domain names, eh?

We've been having a bit of a love/hate relationship with Lana Del Rey lately -- we can't stop playing her new album, Born To Die, but her live performances are pretty weak and we're not fans of her blinged out tooth cap.

The 25-year-old singer was spotted out in Hollywood last night after appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and she signed autographs for fans before making her way to the Chateau Marmont.

So what does she have to say about her plump pout in the "Video Games" music video? Lana tells The New York Times Style Magazine, "They're real lips. I mean … in real life my lips don't look that big. I think because I cartoonized the footage of myself in the video for "Video Games" things look exaggerated." Uhh, ok...

Lana Del Rey Tries To Redeem Herself By Performing At Amoeba Music

Feb 8, 2012 11:45 AM

Lana Del Rey Amoeba Music singing performance

Even though she postponed her tour following her weak SNL performance, Lana Del Rey is still trying to prove that she has the talent to sing live!

The 25-year-old "Video Games" singer performed a quickie set at Amoeba Music in Hollywood last night, and after the show she spent time greeting fans and posing for pictures.

While it was speculated that her management team and record label execs were the ones who pulled the plug on her upcoming concerts, a source tells Fox News, "Interscope had nothing to do with booking or postponing a tour. Jimmy [Iovine] is excited and thankful that Lana is performing at a Grammy event in his honor this week." Think she can pull herself together for a tour to support her album?

P.S. Thoughts on the sparkly cap Lana rocked on her eye tooth? We know it's not real ... and it just seems a bit ridiculous!

Lana Del Rey Postpones Tour After Shaky SNL Performance

Feb 7, 2012 11:59 AM

ldelrey020212_09_X17.jpgLana Del Rey has decided to postpone her tour following her lackluster Saturday Night Live performance last month, according to sources for Fox News.

"[Lana] and her manager decided to cancel [the tour] after SNL," a source told Fox. "She was very upset." The tour was supposed to coincide with the release of her debut album, Born To Die, and even though it's number one in 14 countries (we bought it and can't stop playing it!), her live shows still need a little bit a lot of work. The source added, "They figure it allows time for her to clear her head, then go back to selling tickets. More importantly, they figure, the extra time gives them more distance from SNL."

Another source said Interscope's Jimmy Iovine and Del Rey's booking agents at CAA knew after SNL that she was not ready to tour and that live shows would actually hurt her record sales. "Jimmy knew if she would have disappointed again, it would have backfired," the source said.

Lana Del Rey Shakes Off Her SNL Scandal And Greets Fans In Paris

Lana Del Rey is in Paris to promote her new album, Born To Die, and it seems like the 25-year-old internet sensation-turned-songwriter has recovered from her embarrassing performance on Saturday Night Live earlier this month.

Despite her shaky rendition of "Video Games" on SNL, Del Rey (real name: Elizabeth Grant) told Rolling Stone,"I actually felt good about it. I thought I looked beautiful and sang fine ... I know some people didn't like it, but that's just the way I perform, and my fans know that." Del Rey did admit to being nervous, saying live performance has never been her forte because she is "not a natural performer or exhibitionist." Um, can someone please remind us why she's a singer?

"There's backlash about everything I do. It's nothing new," she continued. "When I walk outside, people have something to say about it. It wouldn't have mattered if I was absolutely excellent. People don't have anything nice to say about this project." Well, maybe if she was more forthcoming about the fact that her millionaire father financed her career, we wouldn't mind!
