Elizabeth Grant’s, erm, Lana Del Rey’s new album, Lust for Life was released today, and boy, is it one sultry 16-track album.
I just can’t get enough of her voice sometimes!
My favorite track on the album is the title track, “Lust for Life,” featuring another crooner fave The Weeknd. There’s so much intense imagery and repetition in the lyrics, which I’ve always really loved about Lana Del Rey’s music.
To celebrate Lust for Life, let’s enjoy this piece of Lana Del Rey fan art by Brazilian illustrator Will Costa that I found on Facebook. It has just the right amount of playful cartoon characteristics mixed with real human qualities. He captures Lana’s lips and eyes perfectly!

Had an extremely long week, so Fan Art Fridays is taking the week off. See ya next week!
Capital Cities duo Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant just made my Friday with the release of their new EP Swimming Pool Summer.
I was so caught off guard when I heard their voices coming through my headphones at the office while listening to Spotify’s New Music Friday!
The EP is super summery and upbeat. Long-time fans will not be disappointed.
In celebration, let’s enjoy this fan art I found on Twitter by Filipino Capital Cities fan @imnotjess. I love how vibrant and fun the colors are in this poster-like fan art. Perfectly matches the personality of the band!

Is this supposed to be the re-emancipation of Mimi?
This week, Mariah Carey did a photo shoot while floating on the Dead Sea to promote Dead Sea Cosmetics, and it is now confirmed that she’s indeed extra.
I mean, I can’t say I would pass up the opportunity to do a photo shoot on such a gorgeous piece of scenery, especially if I were a multi-platinum artist.
To celebrate her extra-ness (is that a word?), let’s enjoy a normal pencil sketch I found of the singer on Pinterest by reifra.

LIGHTS released a new song today called “Giants,” and now I’m excited about her upcoming album Skin&Earth.
I didn’t even know she was putting out a new album, much less that she had dyed her hair red! Where have I been?!
Anyway, let’s celebrate the release of “Giants” with this awesome fan art I found of LIGHTS by @kellymusler over in Instagram. Her hair looks super fiery in the color pencil sketch, which I absolutely love!

And here we all thought that the sass was real on Demi Lovato’s “Confident.”
Today, Demi’s collab with Jax Jones and Stefflon Don titled “Instruction” was released, and boy, I don’t think I wanna disobey!
Demi is basically boss lady on this track and I love every second of it.
To celebrate this amazing song, here’s some fan art of Demi by @londonhazz on Instagram. Look. At. Those. Lashes!
Check out some more of @londonhazz’s art and listen to “Instruction” here.
Katy Perry’s new album Witness dropped today, and although some think it’s pretty terrible, I kinda liked it. A little.
“Chained to the Rhythm,” one of the singles on the album, is an instant fave for me. I absolutely loved the music video for it as well. In terms of non-singles, “Tsunami” and “Déjà Vu” are really great. I do agree that Katy Perry tried to stray from her playful self a bit too much on this album.
Regardless, Teenage Dream still holds the spot as my favorite Katy Perry album.
Enjoy this intense digital fan art of Katy Perry that I found over on Instagram. It’s by by Indonesian graphic artist Muhammad Lutfi (@mdlutfi057). I can’t get over how captivating her blue eyes are in this piece!
Anyone else kind of miss Katy Perry’s dark hair days?
See more of Lutfi’s amazing fan art on Instagram, and give Witness a listen.
