Singer Lana Del Rey said in an interview with The Guardian UK, that she wishes she was DEAD!
Discussing her heroes, members of the infamous “27 club” including the late Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain, she said: “I wish I was dead already,” adding “But I do,” she countered, adding: “I don’t want to have to keep doing this. But I am.”
“That’s just how I feel. If it wasn’t that way, then I wouldn’t say it. I would be scared if I knew [death] was coming, but…”
Del Rey (real name Elizabeth Woolridge Grant) confessed that, “Family members will come on the road with me and say: ‘Wow, your life is just like a movie!’” she told The Guardian. “And I’m like: ‘Yeah, a really f—ed-up movie.’”
She added in the same interview that she was “never the star” of her own show, especially within her family. “I have a very complicated family life,” adding, “I have a complicated personal life. It’s not just my life, it’s everyone else’s in this extended family unit. It’s always about someone else, even with the people I work with.”
Asked why her career hasn’t taken off in the same way as Miley Cyrus or Lady Gaga, he responded:
“Well, maybe those people are true provocateurs,” she said. “But I’m really not and never have been. I don’t think there’s any shock value in my stuff – well, maybe the odd disconcerting lyric – but I think other people probably deserve the criticism, because they’re eliciting it.”
