Lana Del Rey did a casual Instagram cover of Ariana Grande’s new ode to Pete Davidson titled, of course, “Pete Davidson” and it’s a pretty great crossover of two pop stars. The singer posted a video of herself singing the song from Grande’s Sweetener, singing the lyrics “I thought you into my life, look at my mind. No better place or a time, how they align.”

On Tuesday, Lana Del Rey released her own besotted song, “Venice Bitch” from her upcoming album, perfectly titled Norman Fucking Rockwell. Her album, she announced on Beats 1, will come out early next year, and it’s produced by frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff. Where did the hilarious album name come from? The singer said she was in “a little bit of a lighter mood” and wrote a song “about this guy who is such a genius artist but he thinks he’s the shit and he knows it and he like won’t shut up talking about it.”
“Venice Bitch” is also a nine-and-a-half-minute song, and she said on the radio her managers were a little miffed. “They were like, it’s 10 minutes long. Are you kidding me? It’s called ‘Venice Bitch.’ Like why do you do this to us? Can you make a three-minute normal pop song?”
Could there perhaps be a future of a “three-minute normal pop song” created with Grande? May we be so lucky.
