Is Lana Del Rey engaged? Yes, yes. The singer is definitely engaged y’all- even if the news has been able to fly under the radar until now. Just how long has Lana been engaged? Months and months. Remember when it was warm in the northern hemisphere? Yeah, since then.
Multiple sources have confirmed to Us Weekly that Lana and boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill became engaged this past summer.
O’Neill is in Kassidy- a Scottish band- where he sings and plays guitar. The two began dating in 2011 and the engagement hoopla came after pictures surfaced of the couple house hunting in Los Angeles this past July- complete with a rock on Lana Del Rey’s left hand. Until now, however, we were left wondering without knowing for certain if it meant what we thought it might have meant.
Lana is known for her angst ridden somber songs about loss, but that may be changing soon. In January 2012, the singer admitted to Complex magazine that “Off to the Races” is about the highs of love. Of her relationship, she told the mag: “When I found somebody who I fell in love with, it made me feel different than I felt the rest of the day. It was electrifying. That’s what inspired the ‘Off to the Races’ melodies. That’s one of the times when you’re feeling electrified by someone else and they make you happy to be alive.”
No news yet on any wedding plans. But hey, they got secretly engaged- who’s to say they won’t get secretly married too. Congrats all around!
