James Franco has been obsessed with Lana Del Rey for a while, and now his fascination has been taken to its logical conclusion: He’s writing a book about her! Maybe also with her; it’s hard to tell. The book’s called Flip-Side: Real and Imaginary Conversations With Lana Del Rey, and it seems like a lengthier version of Franco’s V magazine tribute from earlier this year. There, Franco revealed the singer refused to be interviewed for a book, telling him, “Just write around me; It’s better if it’s not my own words. It’s almost better if you don’t get me exactly, but try.” So either she changed her mind, or these will be entirely imaginary conversations, or truth is an illusion and only performance is real.
