Lana Del Rey: A Timeline Of Her Year Since “Video Games”
Lizzy Grant. May Jailer. Love her or hate her, the artist we now know as Lana Del Rey has had one hell of a year. Since her stitched-together found-footage visual for “Video Games” popped up on YouTube last summer — it first appeared in June of 2011, disappeared, then resurfaced on August 19 — the critical lightning rod has been dissected, defended and deconstructed in countless think pieces while making the rounds as an up-and-coming pop star. From her magazines covers, modeling campaigns and, yes, that infamous SNL performance, LDR kept herself at the fore of our minds. In celebration, we’ve compiled a timeline of Lana’s watershed moments from the last 12 months.
