Lana Del Rey sings poolside at Chateau Marmont!

Hey boys and girls! I apologize for being out the loop lately here on PopBytes, I’ve been swamped with freelance design work (which thankfully pays the bills), so I’ve been dealing with that. Many thanks to my writers for keeping things running smoothly, I hope to get back to blogging very soon! Yes, I know I posted about rising star Lana Del Rey a few days ago, but I had to share this video of her singing poolside at legendary Hollywood hot spot Chateau Marmont (the night after her first Los Angeles show at the Troubadour). Lana takes on the title track of her debut album Born To Die, due out January 31st! I’m completely obsessed with her whole David Lynch vibe and haunting ways, I hope you too will soon be!
