Are Lana del Rey, 25, and Axl Rose, 50, a real(ly gross) thing?

Lana del Ray Axl Rose

Somehow Lana del Ray’s so-called “real” lips are still gathering attention in a most inexplicable manner. This story is a strange one though because Lana was photographed exiting the Chateau Marmont with Axl Rose (of the formerly awesome Guns ‘n’ Roses) in tow. Weird, right?

Ordinarily I’d try not to make a huge deal out of this sort of thing and assume that Lana, 25, and Axl, 50, are merely enjoying a platonic relationship. After all, they’re not holding hands or anything as they made their way to the same waiting vehicle. Lana is said to be a huge G’n'R fan as well, and she was photographed at two of their concerts during the month of March. However (and this is where it gets skeevy), Lana wrote a song called “Axl Rose Husband” during her pre-fame days. In other words, she has basically admitted to having a crush on the dude, so it’s not outside the realm of possibility that these two might actually date:

She is a self confessed Guns N’ Roses fan, and even once wrote a song entitled “Axl Rose Husband.” And Lana Del Rey was clearly enjoying the chance to spend the evening with her idol – the group’s frontman Axl Rose last night.

The unlikely pair were spotted leaving West Hollywood hot spot Chateau Marmont last night, before driving away in an SUV together with a female companion.

Axl, who is now 50-years-old and looks a bloated shadow of his previous rocker self, sported a black hat, long sleeved top and ripped jeans as he followed his younger companion out of the hotel.

He also sported a rather unflattering strawberry blonde moustache and shoulder length hair. And 25-year-old Lana was equally low key, sporting slim fitting jeans, a pale denim shirt, flat black shoes and a white T=shirt.

They then got into a large black car, with Axl in the front seat and Lana and her female friend in the back.

Last month, Lana attended two separate back-to-back Guns N’ Roses concerts in LA – one at the House of Blues and one at the The Wiltern. She has also been spotted sporting a black Guns N’ Roses vest top which she happily showed off to photographers.

Lana recorded the song “Axl Rose Husband,” back when she was going by her real name Lizzy Grant. It featured the lyrics: “You’re my one king daddy, I’m your little queen.”

Did she really mean to write “king daddy … little queen” about Axl? How squicky. I mean, the dude used to be okay by hair-band standards, but he’s really let himself go over the years. Essentially, I lost interest long before he started sporting a headful of tiny braids. But who knows? Axl might be great company. After all, he was spotted playing pingpong with Scarlett Johansson in early 2010. Maybe he has … hidden talents. And I just grossed myself out.

    First – eeeewwww! He looks like someone’s grubby uncle from back home.

    Second – I somehow missed the post about her lips, but I have that same mouth. And they’re real. Big lips were not in style when I was growing up and I was teased mercilessly about my fish lips. Where was Angelina when I was a kid!?

    Third – eeeeeewwwwww!!!

  2. Marjalane says:

    Isn’t he the one that had all the really bad plastic surgery? This L.D.R. is kind of being forced on America isn’t she?

  3. Agnes says:

    i just puked. seriously.

  4. TruthTella says:

    I doubt they’re doing anything, She could have written the song about him when he was in his prime…
    Also her music is great.

  5. TXCinderella says:

    Love GNR and I used to think Axl was good looking, but he is just…Ugh. Blech.

  6. deb says:

    he used to be…
    i can’t even imagine it now.
    it’s like, academically-speaking, i know he used to be okay-ish (sometimes more than okay-ish, depending on my adolescent mood),
    but these images of the wtf-him…

    like seriously, he was once a hot mess. now he’s just a steaming pile of mess. with bluebottle-halos.

  7. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    I like the high waisted jeans and hope they are making a comeback :)

  8. Meecey says:

    Omg seriously that can’t be Axl. Come on. Please say it ain’t so! Someone get that image OUT of my head! Wtf happened? Omg I just omg I can’t….

  9. Franny says:

    That’s an interesting outfit she has on. I guess its fitting for her to “date” him, since she seems to be stuck in the 80s with that outfit.

  10. Zelda says:

    Lana Del Rey is getting papped now, eh?

    So they’re still trying to make “fetch” happen, then.

  11. Minky says:

    In thy last picture, Axl looks like a leprechaun.

  12. bored says:

    They look like father and daughter together.

  13. mln76 says:

    Isn’t he an infamous woman beater??? EEEW

  14. Katyusha says:

    She reminds me of Axl’s first wife (only wife?), Erin Everly.

    I wonder if he sees Erin in her?

  15. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    Her voice is more gross than this relationship, her lips a close second.

    Yes I said it, so the beatnik, Dean and Delucca hipsters can have a seat LOL.

  16. Victoria says:

    Oh, a surprise? Then why is the friend wearing ORANGE? Perfect photo op.

  17. trtgfc17 says:

    Coke. Cooooooooooooke. That is all.

    • Mouse says:

      Yep, just what I was thinking. And she seems like the type to use whatever their relationship is to climb up the next rung of the ladder.

  18. marie says:

    I love GNR, however Axel Rose at any age is gross.. I just don’t get the appeal of her, and from looking at some of the comments, apparently I’m not the only one..

  19. JM says:

    Love G-N-R but was a Slash & Duff girl. Something about dudes & guitars just does it for me.

    Anyway, Axl is known for his supreme douchyness. I don’t know who this girl is but she needs to check her fantasies at the door and run for the hills.

    • Eleonor says:

      Ooh I see your point with the guitarists I was sooo into Izzy, who is still hot :P

      • Liz says:

        No word from Izzy yet about attending the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. I wonder how he looks like now?

  20. Jenna says:

    Ewwkay then. Thanks for that.

  21. Jover says:

    I love GNR but Axl’s a douche and enough has been written about this chick’s fake background to know she’s a label creation; i will repeat what one poster said about her “music” awhile back; why support useless weak noise; hey anyone, esperanza spalding has a new cd out.Who cares about Elizabeth Grant.

  22. velourazure says:

    but what’s courtney cox doing with them?

    and she gets lip injections, definitely.

  23. Edward G. says:

    This girl is a talentless P.O.S. Now she’s starf*cking a D list former celebrity so she can be snapped at the fame whore brothel for the rich and famous, the Shack Ho Marmont.

  24. Laura says:

    Hmmm, no worse than J Ho and Facially Challenged Ghost if it is true. But he looks about 10 years older than my 58 year old dad

  25. skuddles says:

    Teeny tiny penis alert!!! Girl must be desperate for PR to take up with this foul little tequila worm of a man.

  26. Camille (The original) says:

    Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.

  27. crtb says:

    I am so sick of reading about OLD TV, movie and rock stars and their girlfriends who are half their age. I don’t feel any better when women do but you don’t see it as often. They all look so stupid.

  28. Elvynn says:

    She was with Marilyn Manson few weeks ago.

  29. Hilary says:

    Please! She’s a product of the industry who was a nobody before the creation of Lana Del Rey her persona today and this, just like a few weeks ago with Marilyn Manson, is just a publicity stunt. For some reason, she and her “people” think leading the public to believe she is dating 50 year old Axl Rose is good for her image. Gross.

  30. anya says:

    Jeez, people give this girl such a hard time. She’s created a persona: what’s the big deal about that exactly? What’s important is that her music is a breath of fresh air. I think she has much more control about her image/music/visuals than people think. She certainly doesn’t look like she’s trying hard to keep up an image in these photos.
    Lana rules!
