My eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw a photo of the possibly-death-obsessed singer Lana Del Rey in London.
Her t-shirt features the 1990 “Women of Twin Peaks” Rolling Stone cover that hung on my wall for many years.
I can imagine pouty Lana being an Audrey Horne fan like me, but there’s a major difference between us: I personally bought that magazine at a newsstand, the year after I graduated from college. At the time, Lana was about to turn four years old. Ha!
Lana’s new album, Ultraviolence, is No. 1 on the Billboard charts, and I keep thinking of all the people who declared that her career was over after her widely panned performance on Saturday Night Live in 2012. (News anchor Brian Williams called it “one of the worst outings in SNL history” and SNL itself wound up parodying the performance in a subsequent episode.) Surprise, y’all! I have a hunch we’ll be seeing her on that show again.
I loved that show! Was obsessed with Sherilyn Fennel for a bit… but so was Johnny Depp, I believe. Madchen’s hair is incredible… and I’m sure this was before extensions.
Yep with the hair! Now I assume everyone is really bald.
That cover…it’s amazing, but whyyyyyy didn’t any of us understand how unflattering that style of jeans was at the time? (Not us as in the hot babes on the cover, but us as in those of us who were wearing those jeans in college circa 1990).
I guess if we’re all wearing the same thing, the ugliness evens out, eh?
“I guess if we’re all wearing the same thing, the ugliness evens out, eh?” — that’s my theory!

I’ve never seen that show (I was probably around Lana’s age) and I haven’t seen that SNL performance (though now I’m going to hunt it down on YouTube). However, I was pretty addicted to her first album a couple summers ago and I dig her style!
You have to Netflix (or whatever!) Twin Peaks! OMG!
