Throwback Thurs! Getting A Once In A Lifetime Moment With Lana Del Rey! She Invited An Entire Crowd To Meet Her At Her Hotel To Hang Out!

Sometimes when you look back at all the crazy adventures you go on and say, “Why did I spend so much time on so and so…” Or at least I do. LOL. Well, one person, that isn’t the case for, is Lana Del Rey! Her new album is about to be released and it seems like she’s bigger than ever before.

Scotty and I had an amazing night with the Video Games singer, It’s really kind of unbelievable. Plus, let me tell you, it will never happen again!

Check out today’s Throwback Thurs below!

I get “the look” a lot of time I say, “I’m heading out for So and So…” Just because they are a new singer or songwriter and are not a household name. Sometimes they blow up. I got made fun of the first time I headed out for Katy Perry. She was nice, I got a photo with her, and now… Yeash, try and get that photo… Same thing for Florence and the Machine…

So, when I said, “I’m going out for Lana Del Rey” all everyone kept saying was how she sucked on SNL. Look, I love her album, I think it’s pretty damn amazing, and if she wants to she can go pretty far. When I heard she was doing a talk show here in LA, I had to check it out. Scotty already sent in his recap of events, but I wanted to talk about my experiences as well.

It was crazy!

6:12 p.m. – I just arrived and there are.. oh 25 people here… But they are all dealers with a mix of fans thrown into the mix… Ugh..

6:22 p.m. – I have the Q magazine, the Complex magazine and this rare vinyl banner for Lana Del Rey… Also taping the show today is Jeff Goldblum who ironically I need on Earth Girls are Easy and Jurassic Park.

6:34 p.m. – Oh, there’s Jeff… He’s arriving and waves… Sigh… He’s inside. Ah well… So much for that…

6:49 p.m. – More and more people are showing up… Oh Lord… One guy said it’s because she sells so well on eBay. Like up to $250 bucks for an 11 x 14 photo. That’s insane!

7:02 p.m. – It’s so cold… It’s like being trapped in a wind tunnel. There are fans from all over the world here… A lot from France, and I think a couple French autograph dealers. Is it really cost effective to fly to the US to get autographs? Man… I just don’t know about all that…

7:14 p.m. – Scotty has his Complex magazine and a pull out from V Magazine for Lana Del Rey.

7:22 p.m. – Whoa… There is a weird sort of explosion in the sky… What the…. Oh, it’s actually parachuters jumping with fireworks… Only in Hollywood….

7:34 p.m. – Man, I’m surrounded by a lot of annoying people… I have to call Scotty on the phone to talk to someone normal. Well… Scotty is next to CB so…

7:45 p.m. – Still nothing… The cold is making the time trickle by… I’m trying to mentally put myself in another place… I’m choosing Ireland, at an old castle…

7:53 p.m. – Man, tonight is not a fun night… This is just kind of rough…

8:14 p.m. – Well… It looks like something might be happening…

8:16 p.m. – There’s Lana Del Rey! She’s coming over but people just start behaving like animals… I mean I have never seen this even at the worst premiere… Well… Maybe at a bad premiere…

Lana is signing on the fence, and everyone rushes over… I can hear people yelling, “Lana we’ve been here all day!” Security is trying to get Lana Del Rey to leave, but she is fighting with them because she wants to greet her fans. But honestly, these guys are behaving like vultures waiting for their last meal…

8:17 p.m. – Lana comes to the barricade and takes a couple photos, but the pushing is too much and security takes her away. She goes back to the fence and insists on signing there. I run over, because she is leaving. She signs my Vinyl poster Lana and then says, “Guys, I’m sorry… Come to my hotel, I’ll sign and take photos with everyone!”

I was like… Huh?

8:19 p.m. – Scotty and I walk back to my car debating about what to do. We decide to head over to Lana Del Rey’s hotel. She told us where she was staying, which I have never heard of before.

8:22 p.m. – We head off, but can’t find parking… Scotty suggests we do a drive by to see if she is even there. If so, Scotty says, I can jump out because I never got a photo with her, and he’ll watch the car.

8:25 p.m. – At the hotel, we drive by and see Lana Del Rey, no security just meeting with people and signing autographs. We pull the car over and Scotty sits there while I go over… Lana is taking so much time with her fans it’s a bit of a wait.

8:28 p.m. – Scotty parked my car and headed over.

I honestly have never seen anyone so kind to their fans… I mean Lana is literally just signing and taking photos with anyone who asks…. It’s crazy.

Scotty asks Lana if she can do a photo with me, sometimes I get shy, lol… She says “Sure baby!” She grabs me and we get a nice photo.

Then Lana signs both of my magazine’s beautifully. (of course stupid ass me doesn’t bring back my vinyl poster which is double sided. I could have just gotten the other side done with a beautiful full signature! Doh! Stupid!) She is adorable, and asks “Do you want me to just sign it, or do you want me to personalize it? Or write whatever…”

I mean like hyper nice. And in the midst of having 30 people surround her. Amazing… Like above Angelina Jolie amazing…

It’s people like Lana that make me proud to fanboy.

Period.

One of the nicest celebrities out there…. I hope to God that she doesn’t get crushed by dealers and stays this way. Because even though waiting was a misery it was worth it because Lana was so so so kind.

Until next time kids…

Oh, and pick up Lana Del Rey’s album Born to Die! It’s frakkin Fan-tastic!
