GOD DAYYUM! My greatest fear used to be Islamist extremists, but after tonite, my new phobia is Lana Del Rey’s Lebanese fans. In a move that, in retrospect, caused way too much trouble, I teased that Lana Del Rey will be in Beirut this May after leaking that she will be one of the headliners in the Byblos Festival.
I wasn’t lying though, I have confirmed that Lana Del Rey will be in Beirut on the 30th of May for the opening of Sky Bar Beirut. And it doesn’t matter if she has a performance a day before and a day after, appearances at clubs means a short performance and she won’t have to be in Beirut too long.
The hint that there will be no tickets and announcement should’ve been obviously interpreted as a guest star at a club, but, some folks thought I was alluding that she won’t come at all and was trying to ruin their night.
Take a look at some of the tweets which made my night. On a side note, I love you all, and I apologize for not interacting with you more after dropping that bomb shell, but I was celebrating my dearest Najib’s bachelor-hood all over Beirut and Keserwen =P
