For the last five years, Del Rey has pretty much done what she wants when she wants and that has yet to fail her — Lust for Life is a worthy addition to her stacked catalogue.

Los Angeles, CA — As evening turned to night on Sat., July 22, a sense of awe set into the crowd at FYF Festival, with some attendees still seemingly in disbelief that Frank Ocean — who had cancelled on the same gig just two years prior, plus a few others earlier this summer — was going to perfor
