New pictures and a video show the “Young and Beautiful” singer pouring coffee and taking orders at a Waffle House in Alabama. He was wearing the restaurant’s signature blue uniform.
In the eight-second clip, Lana helped customers while wearing a handmade name tag and a hair clip. Some of the people in the area knew who the powerful performer was, and she was kind enough to stand for pictures with eager fans at the restaurant.
It’s already had more than 2.5 million views on Twitter, and many people have praised the Grammy-nominated artist for taking a pink-collar job even though he or she is a world superstar.
“Lana Del Rey working at Waffle House was not on my 2023 bingo card,” said one person on social media.
“She’s so real for this,” another person said. “That sounds like a fun job! “I wonder how she’d do in the morning rush,” said a third.
The job site Indeed said that waiters make $14.50 per hour.

LaShawn Tuttle, who lives in Alabama, said that Summertime Sadness singer Lana Del Rey stopped by a famous food chain in Florence to see her the day after they met at a thrift store. She said Lana was “humble” and fun to be around.
“Had so much fun with Lana Del Rey! She is so kind, funny, and a good sport!” LaShawn went on and on on Facebook.
In an earlier interview, Lana talked about how much she loves music and what keeps her going.
“I’ve been very lucky to follow my muse for the last 18 years, since I was 18,” the classic hitmaker said in 2021 after she was given the Decade Award at the December Variety Hitmakers brunch in Los Angeles. “That has sometimes led me very far away from music and into other art forms and jobs that have nothing to do with the arts at all.”
“I’m very adaptable, and I’ve learned that if you do what you’re passionate about, you’ll be the most creative in that field. Even if you get a 9-to-5 job after getting the Decade Award, you should do what feels right,” she said. “I always say that how I live my life is my poetry, how I make love is my legacy, and in between, I get to make music.”
