Lately, the news for Lana Del Rey has been full of ups and downs. For instance, she was recently dissed by punk rock legend Kim Gordon in her memoirs. But Lana Del Rey does not need Kim’s approval or disapproval because she is strutting her stuff in un-retouched photos while people discuss if she is the perfect Ariel for a new live-action version of Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
Recently, Lana Del Rey was photographed for a men’s fashion magazine called Another Man. The photos were stunning, and fans immediately tweeted their praise of the glamorous way Lana Del Rey looked. However, one thing that is interesting is a photo that proudly displays Lana Del Rey’s laugh line wrinkles around her eyes.

Style Magazine notes that Lana Del Rey’s photo session for Another Man was “Shot by Alasdair McLellan and styled by Alister Mackie, Del Rey sports Miu Miu and Saint Laurent looks while made up like a ’60s siren. Inside the issue is a full spread of the singer.”
On top of tweeting about her beautiful new photos, Lana Del Rey fans are also tweeting about links to her being a mermaid — again. Rumors that started in January are resurfacing on Twitter that speculate about Lana Del Rey playing the role of Ariel. A Lana Del Rey fan account on Twitter stated that there were rumors going around that she could be cast to play the main character of Ariel and stated the following. “Imagine Lana Del Rey being announced to play Ariel in The Little Mermaid. Rumors are going around that she is a contender for the part.”
It’s time for Disney to do a remake where @LanaDelRey plays a boozed-up Ariel. Partofyourworld would make all the boyz drop dead in the club

How did this Lana Del Rey Ariel rumor begin? In January, Lana Del Rey walked down the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards wearing a pleated teal dress that gathered at the waist. MTV said that Lana Del Rey must have been doing her best Ariel impression from The Little Mermaid — because her dress looked like a mermaid tail.
It also does not help that Lana Del Rey has a song called, “Mermaid Motel.”

The rumors linking Lana Del Rey to Ariel from The Little Mermaid that were published on Twitter on March 12 are referencing a video published the same day. Beyond the Trailer published a brainstorm on YouTube that discussed how Lana Del Rey would be an ideal possible contender for Disney’s live-action version of The Little Mermaid. The reasons Beyond the Trailer stated included how Lana Del Rey has already done a great job with “Once Upon A Dream” for Disney.
If Lana Del Rey ever takes on the role of Ariel in The Little Mermaid, she would look great in that “God bless the ocean” Miu Miu or Saint Laurent sparkly dress she was wearing in the Another Man magazine photo shoot. Of course, some fans want to see Lana Del Rey’s new Another Man photos for her next album, Honeymoon.
