True James Franco Writes Lana Del Rey Book Frano can now add author to the list of his stellar accomplishments at this point in his life. James Franco Writes Lana Del Rey Book!? 37 year old Franco has always been very public with his strong friendship with East Coast native "Summertime Sadness" singer, Lana Del Rey. In fact, their relationship has become so strong that he has just written a book about her! Who would have seen that coming! Although, nothing Franco does truly surprises us anymore.

"I wanted to interview Lana for a book and she said, '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," said Franco  in an open letter to Del Rey In an article for V Magazine, recently.

"Lana has become my friend," Franco wrote in the magazine tribute. "She is a musician who is a poet and a video artist. She grew up on the East Coast but she is an artist of the West Coast. When I watch her stuff, when I listen to her stuff, I am reminded of everything I love about Los Angeles. I am sucked into a long gallery of Los Angeles cult figurines, and cult people, up all night like vampires and bikers. The only difference between Lana and me is her haunting voice. That carries everything. The voice is the central axle around which the spokes of everything else extend."

It appears he took her advice!

According to E! News, Frano just co wrote, Flip-Side: Real and Imaginary Conversations With Lana Del Rey with David Shields. The 100-page book will be released March 15, 2016, via Penguin Random House.
