The Homie Brad’s Complex Cover Story

A$AP Rocky and Jeremy Scott got one cover for the Feb/March ’12 issue of Complex, and Lana Del Ray has the other. I know, great timing right? Fuck that though, because the homie Brad Wete did the cover story. If you don’t know the name, this is something you should get familiar with. Brad’s always been a humble dude and willing to offer advice, so congrats to that man….

Hers was a dramatic setup.

White balloons flashing corroded cartoon clips and ghostly images of President John F. Kennedy—all set to the creepy strains of Bernard Herrmann’s Pyscho theme. The fans kept coming through the door, filling New York’s Bowery Ballroom to capacity. The band stood at attention, poised for action as Lana Del Rey strolled on stage to squeals and whistles. Dressed in a summery white dress, gold belt, and low white Chuck Taylors, the tall red-haired singer looked more like she was ready to grab an ice-cream sandwich from Mr. Softee than perform her first proper concert in NYC.

And then the trouble began.

The microphone worked, but the band’s sound failed. So she stood and waited.

“Where’s the music?” an impatient fan blurted out.

“It’s coming, bitch,” Lana snapped in a playfully bratty way. “Fucking technical difficulties up here.”
