Funny man James Franco has plenty of weird tricks up his sleeve (check out his motivational video here) so it's no surprise really that he has now authored a book about singer Lana Del Rey called Flip-Side: Real and Imaginary Conversations with Lana Del Rey.

The title is pretty much self explanatory. People reports that this isn't the first time James has written about the melancholy crooner as he also wrote a poetic ode to her for V Magazine last year.

"Lana lives in her art, and when she comes down to earth for interviews, it gets messy, because she isn't made for this earth. She is made to live in the world she creates. She is one who has been so disappointed by life, she had to create her own world. Just let her live it," he wrote in a piece called Shades of Cool.

In the short snippet, James also reveals why he decided to write about her. "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." We must say this is quite interesting.
