Here's the amazing part - my friend and I had been singing along to Lana's songs on my iPhone as we waited (because we're obsessed). After Lana took a few pics with us, she didn't just run off, which she totally could have. Instead, she stood there, asked us how we knew each other, told us how great it was to meet us, and just had a great conversation.Nothing felt forced. Nothing felt like we were a bother to her. She was honestly thrilled to talk to us and made us feel like we were the only people in the world. When I told her we'd been rocking out to her song and started to play it, all three of us started singing along to it. That's right - I had a sing-along with the illuminating Lana Del Rey! I kept thinking I should be taping this because it was so amazing, but my head was exploding too much to do anything like that.
For weeks I've been reading and hearing all these stories about Lana being above-and-beyond with her fans, but I didn't realize just how incredible she was until I met her in person.
As we talked, a car was running nearby waiting for her. Finally, after a good ten minutes, she said she should probably go because it was his (the driver of the car) birthday (!). Oh, and then she said she'd email me. Maybe she wants to be BFFs, too? :) I don't know if she will, but even saying something like that was awesome!
Now, I don't know who "he" is, but I'm assuming he was her boyfriend (because he was fine), which makes the entire experience even more mind-blowing. She spent all that time with us when she clearly could've blown us off to go celebrate his birthday. Seriously, I'm still speechless and in awe of her. I wanna be BFFs with her. The energy she gives off is warm, kind, and grateful. She's stupendous and deserves every bit of success and fame heading her way. Thank you, Lana. I'm inspired by you.
