The Saddest, Baddest Diva in Rock.

Lana Del Rey

"Yeah my boyfriend's pretty cool, but he's not as cool as me."

“My idea of a true feminist is a woman who feels free enough to so whatever she wants.”- Lana Del Rey.

Lana Del Rey’s Big Eyes is the main theme of the Tim Burton movie of the same name. Big Eyes awakening of the painter Margaret Keane, her phenomenal success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband, who claimed credit for her work in the 1960s.

Lana Del Rey’s Big Eyes lyrics

With your big eyes
And your big lies
With your big eyes
And your big lies

I saw you creeping around the garden
What are you hiding?
I beg your pardon don’t tell me “nothing”
I used to think that I could trust you
I was your woman
You were my knight and shining companion
To my surprise my loves demise was his own greed and lullaby

With your big eyes, and your big lies
With your big eyes, and your big lies

I noticed you got hot in summer you had no comfort
Your shirt was cotton your face was sunburned
You paced around like you’d been waiting
Waiting for something
Your world was burning and I stood watching
As I looked on the flames grew high you watched me frown
I said “goodbye”

With your big eyes, and your big lies
With your big eyes, and your big lies

Is it me was I wrong to have trusted you
Did I see what I wanted, what wasn’t true?
Was I wrong to go on like a little fool?
It’s amazing what women in love will do

With your big eyes
And your big lies
With your big eyes
And your big lies

About Feminism Through Cinema and Literature

Hi, its Tia. From Cambridge, England. Avid reader, film watcher and feminist. Studying for an undergraduate degree in English Literature at York St John University. The tone of my blog has hopefully developed into a more literary and critical analysis of female roles in cinema and literature. This is a development that I hope to continue as I progress with my studies. Hope you enjoy my blog and do feel free to leave a comment.
