So, remember last month when Lana Del Rey told The Guardian newspaper that she wished she was dead only to recant later and deny that she wished for death after she got called out for her irresponsible comment by Frances Bean Cobain? Well, today we learn that LDR has given another interview, this time to Rolling Stone magazine, and she is saying more ridiculous things. Did you know that despite the fact that Lana Del Rey keeps releasing music for sale, she’d really rather you didn’t listen to her music because — she says — she really only makes her music for herself and it’s really no one else’s business so, yeah, don’t listen to her music. Um, ok.
On her state of mind: “Well, I feel fucking crazy,” she says. “But I don’t think I am. People make me feel crazy.” She blames her much-publicized “I wish I were dead” quotes on leading questions, but adds, “I find that most people I meet figure I kind of want to kill myself anyway. So, it comes up every time.”
On how she wants people to hear lyrics like “he hurt me and it felt like true love”: “I just don’t want them to hear it at all,” she says. “I’m very selfish. I make everything for me, kind of. I mean, every little thing, down to the guitar and the drums. It’s just for me… I don’t want them to hear it and think about it. It’s none of their business!”
On her Saturday Night Live performance: “It wasn’t dynamic, but it was true to form,” she says, though former Interscope Records head Jimmy Iovine reveals that he worked with her afterwards on the use of in-ear monitors. In any case, Del Rey says music-biz friends pulled away from her post-SNL: “Everyone I knew suddenly wasn’t so sure about me,” she says. “They were like, ‘Maybe I don’t want to be associated with her – not a great reputation.'”
LOL. Oh, Lana. You’re so dramatic. After she completed her RS interview for her first-ever RS cover feature, she tried to cancel the whole thing:
“I’m not sure if they should run this story. I feel like maybe we should wait until there’s something good to talk about. You know? 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.”
I really like Lana’s music but she should never do interviews because she is really f****ing annoying in interviews. No, please, don’t print the interview that I just gave you because I know you’re going to let people know that I tried to abort the interview and that makes me more interesting, is what I guess she was going for? Whatever, LDR. What the eff ever.
