Glamorous, classic and cinematic, Lana Del Rey absolutely crushed her Coachella set like nothing I’ve seen in my lifetime. It was retro future at it’s best. I’m starting to realize that Lana is just as much of a visual artist as she’s a singer. Every single detail and camera angle was flawless. The music was amazing not just for song quality but also in terms of how well it complimented everything else she was doing. Time and space totally changed and we went into Lana’s world and it was truly remarkable. I knew she was good, I didn’t know she was a master. I’m from New York and everything about me screams it but 2 years in California and I can’t pretend like the West Coast isn’t where it’s at. It took us about an hour and a half to drive from Downtown LA to the festival, two hours and we were literally in the desert. Since I moved here I’ve been on a journey toward personal growth and everything about Cali promotes development.
Hollywood is fake, everyone knows that. Some people get trapped because they can’t see the facade but that’s just the top layer. What’s really at hand is the ability to create yourself in whatever light you desire…
People cut themselves off from their ties of old life when they come to Los Angeles. They are looking for a place where they can be free, where they can do things they couldn’t do anywhere else.” – Tom Bradley
We’re all made in the image of the ultimate creator and that means that we’re little creators. The life you want is waiting for YOU to create it. You need to visualize every single detail, see yourself as who you want to be, surround yourself with those who inspire you and make your vision come true. This weekend and California in general has helped me realize that more than ever. It also makes me realize that I want to live all over the world and be inspired by the energy of those places. Cheers to that, this is Lana’s new jam West Coast which she premiered live last night.
