Axl Rose and Lana Del Rey Rumored to Be Dating

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Mon, Apr 9, 2012 at 11:44 AM

SHUDDER. From the NY Daily News:

The "Video Games" singer and Rose, 50, were spotted leaving the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood together Friday, feuling speculation that the two are more than musical colleagues. Del Rey has long admired the Guns N' Roses singer, and just last month, attended two back-to-back shows in L.A. to show her support. Prior to making it big with her controversial stint on "Saturday Night Live," the singer even recorded a song "Axl Rose Husband," in which she exhalted Rose. "You're my one king daddy, I'm your little queen," she croons on the track.

On the one hand this pairing could have disastrous cultural implications. A young, Appetite-era Axl Rose is one thing, but the puffy old multiply transgressed Rose is some risky business. And Del Rey, of course, we hate. (Why do we hate her again? Because of SNL or because "king daddy"?) On the other hand, this seems a little trumped up. Firstly there was another woman with them when they were spotted, and this looks like a pretty safe distance:

Either way I find the idea grimly fascinating.
