Lana Del Rey, aka the enigmatic singer known for her soulful melodies, poetic lyrics, and epic outfits, has recently sparked intrigue and curiosity among fans after making an unexpected appearance at a Waffle House in Florence, Alabama. The ‘Summertime Sadness’ singer has seemingly taken on a new role as a waitress, leaving fans to wonder what on earth the artist is up to.
On Thursday 20 July 2023, Lana Del Rey was spotted serving patrons at Waffle House, dressed in a sky-blue uniform and with her name tag “Lana” in plain view.
In the video, the 38-year-old singer-songwriter is heard playfully cautioning someone not to film another customer without their permission. The caption accompanying the post simply reads, “Just Lana Del Rey working as a waitress at a restaurant.”
Another lucky customer got to sing ‘Amazing Grace’ with Del Rey during one of her shifts:
As pictures and videos began surfacing from different social media accounts, fans couldn’t quite believe what they were seeing. Some wondered if her waitressing stint might be a covert music video shoot, others joked that she might be conducting research for an upcoming album, which some netizens have already ironically titled Waffle House Serenade.
But wait, there’s more. In addition to serving up waffles, Del Rey has also been spotted at a local nail salon and a Starbucks in the area. Is this all part of a master plan for a new music project, or could it be a very Lana-esque break from the West Coast to fully unwind and escape the pressures of fame?
As fans eagerly await a potential explanation from the singer, the mystery of her Waffle House gig remains unsolved. One thing is for sure, whether it’s a clever marketing ploy or a genuine expression of her artistic spirit, Lana Del Rey never fails to keep us on our toes.
