On March 29, Lana Del Rey shared a snippet of a new song of hers titled ‘Happiness Is A Butterfly’. She posted it to her Twitter and Instagram, and shared some of the lyrics!
happiness is a butterfly
try to catch it like every night
it escapes from my hands
every day is a lullaby
I hum it on the phone like every night
and sing it for my babies on the tourlife
Lana also commented on the post, saying “don’t try too hard to catch it … just dance until it finds u”.
On February 25, Lana Del Rey went to The Peppermint nightclub in Los Angeles where her sister Chuck hosted a karaoke party. Lana was joined by some fans to perform ‘Cherry‘ from Lana’s latest album, ‘Lust For Life’.
Some of the fans were identified as George, Joanna and Nadia. Of the night, George said “I was drunk and was mind blown when I saw her like 5 feet away from me. We got to talk a bit.” It’s unclear what happened, but a few people have stated some fans got a bit “messy”, and George even took to Twitter afterwards to apologise to Lana. However, Lana was cool about it, responding with: “It’s coool. We’re messy. We know it. Don’t worry bout it xo”

Off To The Races
Lana Del Rey recently performed at Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles, where she was also interviewed by MTV News. She spoke to Gaby Wilson about her latest album; including the LA to the Moon tour, her collaborations and her newest music video ‘White Mustang.’
Gaby asked Lana if her song ‘Cola‘ had any reference to movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, as many in Hollywood are speaking up about the sexual assault and harassment he administered. In the song Lana sings “Harvey’s in the sky with diamonds, and it’s making me crazy.” However, other fans say they hear “ah he’s” instead of the name Harvey, especially as this is the lyric in the official lyric booklet.
In response, Lana said “When I wrote that song, I suppose I had a Harvey Weinstein/Harry Winston-type of character in mind. I envisioned, like, a benevolent, diamond-bestowing-upon-starlets visual, like a Citizen Kane or something. I’m not really sure. I thought it was funny at the time, and I obviously find it really sad now.”
With this in mind, Lana agreed to retire the song from her setlist, adding that it would be “the right thing to do.” She also stated: “I support the women who have come forward. I think they’re really brave for doing that.”
“White Mustang” opens with a zoom into location where Lana stands over a man (Icelandic actor Eðvarð Egilsson), who stares at her lovingly. The video is about the pair and their relationship which ultimately fizzles out as she chooses to push him away. The video continues even after the short dreamy ballad (2.44) finishes to make up 4 minute and 40 second video, where Lana is seen driving a White Mustang, of course, in what looks like a subtly futuristic LA. She seems hopeful, despite it all.
