Is Lana Del Rey Dating Axl Rose?
Axl Rose-Lana Del Rey Dating Rumor
The rumor that Lana Del Rey and Axl Rose are dating was started when the two were seen leaving together from the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood. Axl Rose, frontman of the reconstituted Guns 'n Roses, is 50. Lana Del Rey, whose "Video Games" video set her up for a disastrous SNL outing, is 25.
The groundwork for the Axl Rose-Lana Del Rey hookup rumor, though, was started by Lana Del Rey herself.
Lana Del Rey has a song called "Axl Rose Husband", which features lyrics like "You're my one king daddy, I'm your little queen", and "White Pontiac heaven, Me your red, white and blue girl, Star spangled danger". True, "Axl Rose Husband" isn't literally about Axl Rose, but come on.
Guns 'n' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba says that Axl Rose and Lana Del Rey are just friends, though we suspect that Slash would dispute Ashba's further assertion that Axl Rose is a "cool dude".
