Lana Del Rey sounds so relaxed and serene in this video that it’s hard to realize that she has been the victim of vandalism.
In a now-deleted Instagram Live video – but saved on YouTube by a pop culture website – Lana explains that her car was broken into and her backpack containing her computer, multiple hard drives, and a camcorder were stolen. She also reveals that she was writing a book for Simon & Schuster, and her 200-page manuscript was among the items stolen, as well as a camcorder filled with family footage.
Her ninth studio album was also on the stolen laptop, and the famous singer is also begging fans not to listen to the leaked music. I suppose that whoever stole all this, will eventually leak it? But what is exactly the point to steal the personal life of someone as famous as Lana Del Rey? Asking for a ransom?
She even admits her complete carelessness as she didn’t back up anything, anywhere. Is that even credible? A professional musician with many albums and a prolific career has only one digital copy of her work? And she leaves everything unattended in her car? Aren’t backups the most basic procedures you learn to do as soon as you use a computer?
On top of this, according to many comments, this is not the first time this is happening: she was the victim of another robbery in 2019 and her jaguar was already stolen earlier this year while she has been dealing with multiple stalkers as this article explains.
I don’t blame Lana for what happened to her, this is really crazy that she has been the target of criminals so many times, but I don’t understand her nonchalance. Would it be time for her to hire security guards and back up her work?
Despite her loss of hours of work and two precious projects, she is so Zen-like in the video that she must be taking Xanax or something. She is smiling the entire time! Anyone in her situation would be either very angry or panicked or unable to sit quietly announcing that their life was ruined!
