LANA DEL RAY Opens Up To Nylon Magazine





Whether you love her or hate her, let’s face it: Lana Del Ray is here to stay! The chart topper opens up to Nylon Magazine this month about how she’s trying to tap into her inner creativity to help her put out the best album EVER (just don’t tell Lady Gaga that). Check out some snippets of what she says below:

On her next album: “When people ask me about it, I just have to be honest–I really don’t know[…] I don’t want to say, ‘Yeah, definitely–the next one’s better than this one,’ because I don’t really hear a next one. My muse is very fickle. She only comes to me sometimes, which is annoying.”

Writing post stardom is hard: “It’s harder to be an observer when people are watching you. You have to go further inside because the outside world becomes a harder place to draw from.”

On quitting drinking before 21: “Sometimes when I write about my feelings, about what sounds like a person, I’m actually writing about the way I felt when I was completely inebriated, which was really good–until it wasn’t working for me anymore[…] Thinking about not drinking forever was very scary, but once I did it wasn’t hard anymore because I had all of these miracles happen that let me know I was on exactly the right path.”

She & boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill are weird: “[Kurt Cobain is] a big part of our daily conversation. Jeff Buckley is another big inspiration. And Jim Morrison–I mean, we talk about these people like we know them. They’re a part of our relationship. We always say, ‘All of our friends are dead, and they never knew us.’ I’m lucky to have met someone who feels that way, too.”

On her new short film, Tropico: “It’s Elvira and Jesus and Marilyn and extraterrestrials all in one.”
