Although Lana Del Rey and Lady Gaga have been seen chumming it up in photos together (like the one above), an unreleased track has surfaced which finds Lana talking some not-so-subliminal shots at the Fame Monster. Believed to be recorded around ’08 or ’09, “So Legit” includes lines like, “Stefani, you suck, I know you’re selling twenty million/ Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg.” Me-ow.
Although their respective breakouts came years apart, Lana and Gaga both shared the same manager, Bob Leone, while coming up in New York City, so there could be some explanation behind the song.
Listen to Lana’s unreleased diss track, complete with lyrics, after the jump…
Lana Del Rey “So Legit” Lyrics:
You were the freak king of the piercing shop
All the girls thought they could sing, but they’re really not, shit
I don’t get it
You’re looking like a man, you’re talking like a baby
How the fuck is your song in a Coke commercial, crazy
I don’t get it
Your taste once exquisite
What happened to Brooklyn? What happened to New York
What happened to my scene? What happened to punk rock, rock
You called me the queen of the downtown scene, babe
How the fuck would you go switch it up and then replace me
I don’t get it, I’m so legit
Tell me, was it ’cause I wasn’t platinum in jewels?
That perhaps you thought I was a little bit even uncool
Kid, was that it?
Stefani, you suck, I know you’re selling twenty million
Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg
You’re hurt, I know my words don’t hurt, yeah
Oh, girl, I see you walking ’round in your pearls
Thinking that you’re number one
You’re so funny, ’cause honey, you’re not
What happened to Brooklyn, the last frontier
They said you could make it anywhere if you can make it here
But where, no magic in the air
What happened to Brooklyn? What happened to our scene, baby?
Have we all gone Gaga crazy?
Remember when the streets used to be dangerous and we were born bad
And we were born bad?
Punk rock, punk rock
The boys used to punch each other in the face and girls were walking around wasted
And everyone had a good night, come back in sunlight
Punk rock, rock, rock.
Also, thanks to Pigeons & Planes for reminding us about this. Lana really had zero chill.
