Azealia Banks & Lana Del Rey - together at last

When they're not lazing about in hotel bedrooms, it turns out that Lana Del Rey and sweary rapping lady Azealia Banks have a mutual appreciation society going on. That's led to a collaboration on Lana's new single, Blue Jeans, which has been remixed and spruced up with a high-octane cameo from Ms Banks. There is also a massive donk on it.

File this one under "totally unexpected", but create a separate index card for "audacious and awesome".

While I'm here, there's a new Lana Del Rey video I've been meaning to post all week.

It's to accompany album track Carmen and it sees Lana return to the found footage montages she created for some of her demo tracks last year. The difference this time is that her YouTube page lists credits all the vinatge videos she's "borrowed". This may have something to do with the fact that Lana got sued to high heaven over the Video Games promo last year.

"That was a bad day," she told me in January. "A million views and it got wiped out. I have a copyright specialist that I work with now." Ooops!
