Like, at first it's fine and you think you have a dark side - it's exciting - and then you realise the dark side wins every time if you decide to indulge in it. Meanwhile the singer leaked nude photos are making a sensation on the internet. I would just walk out of my front door in Brooklyn or Manhattan with an intention to meet somebody who has the same energy. I was kind of looking for this big artist revival, but I never really tapped into anything. Jumping on bikes with total strangers.
Not that many people have to live like this - live without their icons or their idols or their country. I've seen it happen before: people who have their true loves, with many great loves around them. Although it was her uncle who first taught her to play guitar, she looked to other people, strangers, for another kind of inspiration. It was as if the song was too accomplished, Del Rey too beautiful.
It's amazing what happens when you put your interests out into the universe and make it known what you want - you just have to know what it is. This week a video emerged of Lana Del Rey being violently attacked and raped, reportedly, for a Marilyn Manson music video. Isn't that what the being a pop star is all about? As Del Rey puffs away cross-legged on the expensive hotel carpet, speaking her mind, she seems more content than maybe she has been for some time. All artists have a persona. The Hollywood community has been so good to me and they didn't have to be, but not New York. But with the praise for the song came a backlash against the singer - all before Del Rey had even officially released a single note of music.
When I feel like I'm being overwhelmed it's hard to remain a guiding force. It hasn't been activated in some time. Also, wie lautet der Urteilsspruch? These are her songs, her melodies, her singing - she's always had this Sixties aesthetic. Isn't it this precise aspect of them that keeps us absorbed? With songs or with people. Lana has to be very careful when entering the ring since some of her outfit choices can potentially expose her underwear … and it has.

Del Rey uploaded the song, as is the modern way, on 29 June 2011. And when I write about the thing that I've lost I feel like I'm writing about alcohol because that was the first love of my life. Somewhat mysteriously - and this is the bit the sceptics really enjoy getting their teeth into - this first album was only available on iTunes for a matter of months, until it was suddenly withdrawn, with Grant buying back the rights from her label.

This was 2006, and the record label was a small independent called 5 Points Records. Perry, did many photo shoots in which she appeared either nude or semi-nude though not for Playboy. A great deal of what I wrote on Born To Die is about these wilderness years. She began exploring the city.
Mariano Vivanco In an expansive, gilded suite in the famous Hôtel de Paris, Monte-Carlo, Lana Del Rey, dressed in a simple grey hoodie, skinny dark-blue jeans and a crisp white T-shirt, sits down on the floor next to a perfectly vacant couch, lights a cigarette as slim as a Mikado stick and explains how pretty she thinks this part of the world is. Occasionally Del Rey herself pops up, out of focus with beehive hair and beestung lips looking like a hipster Jackie O. Did she have any bad experiences? Her sex appeal is more refined. Do not reproduce even with permission. We'd written five songs and we took a rest. Keeping this thing small, keeping incognito while roaming the streets, trying not to let the critics get to her, learning to live with lost loves - none of it will be easy for Lana Del Rey.
