Lana Del Rey (born Elizabeth Woolridge Grant) is a famous American Indie Pop singer-songwriter, who in mid-2011-12 was a big part of the tumblr sad girl trend because of her songs Summertime Sadness and Born to Die. It is also referenced as an inspiration for the Flower Crown trope.

Her music is noted for its stylized, cinematic quality and exploration of themes of sadness, tragic romance, glamor, and melancholia, containing many references to pop culture, particularly 1950s and 1960s Americana.[1]

Because this, the title and plot of their songs are often popular themes in various fanworks, being used in fanvid, references in fanfics, and used to assemble aesthetics, mostly with AU universe.
