I used to figure that Lana Del Rey's music doesn't suit me, and never will. And I hated them for some time because of the music videos, which I considered as uncreative and bad for my mind. Most of the time I couldn't figure out why would Lizzy use such weird and disturbing themes and stories for her music videos. I wondered if I should blame the director or her, or nobody because I'm just being nosy for worrying about such things?

I was being stubborn, unfair, and misogynistic I guess. I ought to give myself a chance to love her songs, appreciate the joy that she has brought to us, and to the whole world. And after a while, I came to realise that her music wasn't that bad after all, and I find that the music videos were actually presented with really beautiful and meaningful stories. And for being such a talented and beautiful singer and song writer, I think she deserves to be praised and awarded for what she did for the musical industry. You will always be in my heart, Lizzy. And I'm sorry.
