John Mayer Covers Lana Del Rey

By Tom Breihan / April 9, 2012

Lana Del Rey’s transition from internet fame to something resembling actual real-life fame has been a bumpy and fascinating one. To wit: Last week, it was rumored that she was dating Marilyn Mason, which is not a good look. Today, we’re seeing reports that she’s actually dating Axl Rose, which is somehow even worse. And though the story may be unrelated, it somehow seems appropriate that John Mayer, of all people, has recorded a watery instrumental blues-guitar cover of LDR’s breakout single “Video Games.” Mayer posted the cover on his Tumblr a few days ago; listen below.

There’s at least some chance that Mayer is just trolling the world with this one, right?
