Lana Del Rey sat down with several radio stations last week as part of a promotional tour for her new, critically acclaimed album Norman Fucking Rockwell!, and during one interview she dished on Flip-Side: Real and Imaginary Conversations with Lana Del Rey, a project by actor James Franco that had been reportedly slated for a March 2016 release but never hit shelves.
Speaking to Kevin Manno at 104.3 MYfm, Del Rey said, "I thought it was cool that someone I really liked was writing a book about... me? Question mark?" before adding, "But then I had read an excerpt of it."
"We hadn't really spoken all that much yet," she elaborated. "I wasn't thrilled with the, um, presentation. It was definitely a projection.
"I was like, 'Wait a minute, I don't think we talked about that.' And he was like, 'Well, I think we did,' and I was like, 'I'm pretty sure we didn't, where's the recording?' It was just kind of an interesting twist. I think at the time we were talking about a more collaborative poetry book, or a book of short tales, and then it was a weird story about me being, like, a freak."
