Lana Del Rey Says Her Boyfriend Inspired Bizarre ‘Cola’ Lyric
Lana Del Rey recently tweeted an image inspired by her ‘Cola’ lyric: “My p—- tastes like Pepsi-Cola / My eyes are wide like cherry pie.” While it baffled (and gave the giggles to) the masses, she finally offered a somewhat lucid explanation of the line.
She told NME, “I have a Scottish boyfriend, and that’s just what he says!” Del Rey’s dating Kassidy frontman Barrie-James O’Neill, so chances are he prefers Pepsi to Coca-Cola.
The stunning face of Versace (and Jaguar, H+M and more) said her team wasn’t too keen on releasing ‘Cola,’ but she insisted. “They just thought it was really weird,” Del Rey giggled about her handlers. “Nothing new here!” she added. still, the song is one of Del Rey’s faves. “For me that song was so cool. The guys got to play electric guitars … the chorus opens up and has tropical undertones. For me, the vibe of it is so good, I love it.”
Another upside to releasing ‘Cola?’ “There was a lot of laughter,” Del Rey laughed. “I’m getting lots of Pepsi comments, lots of Pepsi fanmail.”
‘Cola’ will appear on ‘Born to Die: The Paradise Edition,’ due Nov. 19. You can hear a snippet of the track, as well as the rest from the album, in the clip below. Sounds pretty sweet to us!
