Why is this happening?

James Franco has written a book about Lana Del Rey. We love Lana, but we'd actually struggle to source material for an essay about her, let alone a whole entire book. 

What is in this book, you ask? Well, in James Franco's copy there is said to be a lock of Lana's hair, a pressed flower, and some blurry words from where his tears of frustration spilled on the page. 


This is the cover of the book:

Lana Del Rey book

If you just choked on your drink…yup. That sounds about right. 

The book is called Flip-Side: Real And Imaginary Conversations With Lana Del Rey and it will be available for purchase next March. 

Is this a performance piece? Is this a trick and when you actually buy the book it's his thesis from NYU that he wants you to proofread for him? What's happening? 

Anyway, this is a thing you can buy in the relatively near future.
