To anyone who doubts that James Franco and Lana Del Rey are hooking up, we'd like to present you with exhibits A through E:

Lana and James on Instagram
Lana and James posing for a photo. No doubt they hung out and brooded together afterwards.

The most telling thing about all of these photos isn't the fact that Lana and James seem like they can't keep their hands off one another.

No, the real giveaway is the fact that all of these pics are on Franco's Instagram page...along with another dozen of so shots of Lana.

No, really: he's got pictures of Lana's Rolling Stone cover, a screen grab from one of her music videos, even a gem in which James poses for a selfie in front of giant Lana poster, which we've included in the gallery above for your being-creeped-out pleasure.

So what does it all mean? Well, most likely it's one of two things: 1. James is banging Lana, or 2. James really, really wishes he was banging Lana.

Lana Del Rey appears on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone, and inside the magazine, the outspoken singer opens up about everything from her mental state to her legendarily awful performance on Saturday Night Live.

The interview took place in the Greenwich Village townhouse owned by Lana's boyfriend, Francesco Carrozzini, and to say that she comes off a bit unstable at times, would be putting it mildly. 

At one point, Lana even tries to shy away from the honor of covering the iconic music mag:

"I'm not sure if they should run this story," the "West Coast" songstress tells her interviewer. "I just wish you could write about something else. There has to be someone else to be the cover story. Like there has to be. Anybody."

Lana claimed that she felt she didn't have anything "good" to talk about during the interview. Well, as far as we're concerned, she dropped enough gems for a dozen cover stories:

Given all the excesses available in Hollywood, and all the stressed-out creative types who work there, it's not surprising that we could come up with a list of celebrity smokers.

Some of the individuals who made said list may surprise you, though.

Despite the obvious risks of bad breath, yellow teeth and ... what's that one we forgot ... oh, right, lung cancer, countless celebrities still smoke cigarettes.

Hey, at least they can afford to pay the sin tax on those $10 packs?

If you know who Lindsay Lohan is, chances are you know Lindsay Lohan smokes. Ditto Charlie Sheen. But you'd never think some of these other stars partake.

Take a look at 23 celeb smokers who should probably quit:

Katherine Heigl
Katherine Heigl is smoking hot ... although her smoking habit is so not. She also thinks e-cigarettes are cool, which is almost funny but more sad than anything.

Here's one we probably should've seen coming. Two of the most self-important weirdos in entertainment might be hooking up and all we can do is hope that it doesn't result in some sort of mega-hipster baby that pops out of the womb talking about bands you've never heard of. 

Lana Del Rey has been on a tear since ending her engagement to Barrie-James O'Neill and it looks as though - like so many starlets before her - she may have fallen into the Franco trap.

It's a known fact that Franco will bang anyone not named Lindsay Lohan, so when we see a photo like the one above, we naturally assume that Lana and James are knockin' boots and discoursing on existentialism together.

On the left is Lana's sister, and we have no way of knowing if she's been able to able to escape Franco's magnetic douchiness, but she's not famous, so James probably literally can't see her.

For those of you struggling to keep up with Lana Del Rey's love life, allow us to be of some assistance:

Lana and Barrie-James O'Neill got engaged in January of 2014. Then, last month, Lana and Barrie-James broke up, possibly because she realized he has a hyphenated first name, and that's awful.

Shortly thereafter Barrie-James claimed he and Lana are still together, so B-J, if you're reading this, we'd like to encourage you to look away now, because Lana has found another uniquely named European dude to be depressed and smoke cigarettes with.

Yes, Lana's been spotted cavorting around Italy with Vogue photographer Francesco Carrozzini.

Neither party has confirmed that they're in a relationship, but you don't take a trip to Italy with a photographer named Francesco and keep it platonic.

Earlier this week Lana Del Rey hinted that she'd ended her engagement to Barrie-James O'Neill.

And by hinted, we mean she definitively stated that she and O'Neill are "not together."

But O'Neill apparently sees things differently, as he told TMZ last night that that the relationship between Lana and himself is most certainly "not over."

"Don't believe what you read," O'Neill told a paparazzo. "It's just stories. Bedtime stories."

We're not sure if Barrie-James is endearingly devoted to making his relationship work or terrifyingly stalker-ish in his insistence that he and Lana are still together.

There's just no way to get a read on this guy; he's got a hyphenated first name, for Pete's sake!

Frances Cobain wants Lana Del Rey to shut up, but the "Shades of Cool" singer apparently has no plans to stop making bizarre comments about the first family of grunge.

Last week, Lana wished she was dead so that she could be more like her idol Kurt Cobain.Today, she stated that she not only draws inspiration from Kurt's troubled widow Courtney Love, she also counts the former Hole singer among her closest friends.

"Courtney Love's a big inspiration," said Lana in a recent interview. "I like her. I talk to her a lot...I just went to her show when she was playing in London.

Well, if Lana is trying to make nice with Frances, buddying up with her estranged mom is probably the wrong way to go about it.

Well, if you were wondering why every love song on Lana Del Rey's new album sounds more like a funeral dirge, we may have an explanation for you:

Lana got engaged to Barrie-James O'Neill earlier this year, but the gloomy chanteuse revealed in a recent interview that she and O'Neill are "currently not together."

Asked to elaborate, Lana stated, "He is a wonderful person. But there are some things with which he has to deal. I will not explain it in detail. I no longer felt free. We'll see how it goes."

We suppose the news isn't entirely shocking, as Del Rey's latest album, Ultraviolence, is filled with musings about breakups and bad relationships.

In a bizarre interview published last week, Lana Del Rey glamorized premature death, and hinted that she'd like to emulate her idols Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain by not living to see 30.

Naturally, a lot of people took offense to this mind-blowingly foolish statement, and one of the critics of Lana's comments knows all too well about the pain that can be caused by one person's reckless disregard for their own health and well-being.

Frances Cobain lost her father - legendary Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain - when she was just a year old.

The young artist was understandably upset by Lana's comments and has made her feelings clear on Twitter:

Lana Del Rey has never exactly been a ball of sunshine (except when she performed as Lizzie Grant in her first attempt at a singing career, but that's a different story). With comments she made in a recent interview with The Guardian, however, Lana's taken her gloomy disposition to a troubling new level.

"I wish I was dead already," says Lana early in the conversation. Things somehow get darker from there, with the singer listing Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse as two of her idols, and seeming to believe she can best emulate them by dying prematurely.

When the interviewer (sensibly) encourages her not to say such things, Lana - sounding very much like a morose teen - argues that she really means it.

"I do!" she exclaims. "I don't want to have to keep doing this but I am."

When the interviewer prompts Lana to explain what she means by "doing this," she elaborates, "Everything. That's just how I feel. If it wasn't that way then I wouldn't say it."
