A SHOP assistant in Glasgow has told of her disbelief at meeting US pop star Lana Del Rey - at her work in a Glasgow branch of Co-op.
Anona Evans was working at a Shawlands branch of the supermarket chain when she spotted a woman with a remarkable resemblance to the American singer-songwriter.
Miss Del Rey, set to perform at the city’s SECC on Thursday, has been spotted regularly in Glasgow since rumours emerged of a romance with Kassidy guitarist Barrie James O’Neill.
Miss Evans, 46, from Darnley, Glasgow, said she saw Del Rey waiting in the queue to be served.
She said: “I saw a woman standing at the back and thought to myself ‘that looks like Lana Del Rey.’
“I started to serve her and told her she really looked like the American singer and that she should think about doing impersonations. She turned around and said ‘I am Lana Del Rey’.
“At first I didn’t believe her and told her she must be joking and so I said ‘but she is American’. She laughed and responded ‘but I am American.’ I still didn’t believe her.”
The 26-year-old then pulled out a recent copy of Vogue, carrying a recent photoshoot, to prove who she was to the shop assistant.
After realising the Video Games singer was telling the truth, Miss Evans asked her for an autograph.
“I tried to find a piece of paper, but Lana said she would get the copy of Vogue and sign it for me. She even offered to pay for it.”
She added: “She kept telling me I was really cute and when she had finished she gave me a huge hug and kissed me on the cheek.”
Miss Del Rey has reportedly grown fond of the city, referring to it on one magazine interview as the place where she was “happiest”.
She has also been seen wearing a Celtic shirt in a Twitter snap.
