Love and Del Rey have been tweeting at each other for a while now, with Love hinting on the social media site that they would be dropping a big announcement before the tour dates were released. After Del Rey covered the Nirvana hit Heart Shaped Box in 2012, Love messaged her to let her know what the lyrics meant.
"You do know the song is about my vagina right? 'Throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back,' umm. On top of which some of the lyrics about my vagina I contributed. So umm next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you? lol xc. You are gorgeous and very talented, it was all in good humor love, it is true however," she wrote.
Love has been taking a brief break from music while she works on a recurring role on Sons Of Anarchy as a preschool teacher. Her solo album is expected sometime next year.
