On February 8, Lana Del Rey arrived in Dallas, Texas for her concert later that night at the American Airlines Center. Before her show, she stopped by the Seacrest Studios at the Children’s Medical Center to pay them a visit.
During her visit, Lana was taught how to play four chords on the ukulele. She sang some of “This Is What Makes Us Girls” which was requested, and also made up her own “new little tropical song” on the ukulele which she said she’ll call ‘Starry Eyed.’ You can see a snippet of this on her Instagram account here (or below). Lana also got a picture from a girl which she said made her “so happy”, and played some games with all the children!

🦄 Told you I’d bring something more sparkly than a fish pebble for next time 🎆 We had song requests but both girlies acknowledged I would have to alter the lyrics if I sang them !! And what were the chances of having four ukelele players in the room ?? So they all taught me four chords and I started to write a new little tropical song. Had the best time. Sending lots of love xo @ryanfoundation
Last month Lana Del Rey visited the Children’s National Hospital in Washington D.C.
Today, February 6, Lana arrived in Nashville, Tennessee for her next show tonight, and stopped by the Seacrest Studios at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
Lana shared some moments from the visit on her Instagram page, which you can see below, including some of the questions the children asked. One girl asked Lana what word she would use to describe herself, and she said “sparkly”.
Lana explained in the post, “Everyone asked questions but Caroline would rather have one of the fish pebbles from the bottom of the question bowl. Then we played a game of Lana Del Yay or Nay. Yay to grocery shopping – nay to making my bed.”

Everyone asked questions but Caroline would rather have one of the fish pebbles from the bottom of the question bowl. Then we played a game of Lana Del Yay or Nay. Yay to grocery shopping- nay to making my bed. Next time I’ll bring u something more sparkly than a fish pebble. Promise 💋

On January 28, Lana Del Rey attended the 60th Annual Grammy Awards held at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Lana’s album “Lust For Life” was nominated for ‘Best Pop Vocal Album’, but unfortunately lost to Ed Sheeran’s “Divide”.
Lana is wearing a custom made Gucci dress: an ivory silk-crepe gown with crystal star embroideries, soft draped V neck crystal rope necklace, finished with a headpiece made of silver and crystal stars and metallic platform shoes. Her look is reminiscent of a dress and headpiece actress Hedy Lamarr wore in the 1941 film Ziegfeld Girl. Lana also wore a white rose on her right wrist in support of the Time’s Up movement.
At the event, Pitchfork asked what was coming next and Lana said: “I’ve got a couple of other tracks. I’ve got this weird track ‘Bartender’ that doesn’t belong to a record yet.” She also explained that she’s hoping to create a video for the song, adding that she hopes for a collaboration with her friend Father John Misty (who appeared in her music video for ‘Freak’) in the future.
MTV asked Lana where she is with the upcoming music video for “Cherry”. She said: “I’m so bad [..] I have to say this arena tour has been the craziest thing I’ve ever done; it’s so amazing but it’s taking up a lot of my time, but I have 20 days off before my South America part, so I’m hoping to shoot it then.”

On January 26, Lana Del Rey visited the Children’s National Hospital in Washington D.C., where she spent some time with the patients. She was also interviewed at their very own Seacrest Studios! During the interview, Lana sung some of her song “Once Upon A Dream” from the Maleficent soundtrack. Lana was asked a bunch of cute questions from her favourite animal (cats) to her favourite colour (anything that sparkles)!.
Later in the day, Lana arrived in Pennsylvania for her next show later tonight and met some fans. In one video, Lana is in awe at a fan’s tattoo, and shows compassion asking “where is your jacket?” before signing some autographs.

Had the best time at the Children’s hospital in Washington DC today before we left for Pennsylvania.
The kids were ready with lots of requests and put me on the spot to sing some songs I’ve done for Disney movies and some other old classics. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/PuLsq7b5eR
