Lana Del Rey posed nude on the cover of the British GQ Men of the Year issue for October. In it she talks about becoming a successful artist: “Just to have someone acknowledge the material I write is incredibly touching. It’s an affirmation of sorts. I just didn’t think that this was going to happen. Not any of it.” She forgot to mention the part where her persona was created by the studios.
She also talks about her alcohol addiction: “It’s been nine years since my last drink. That’s really why I got sent to boarding school aged 14 – to get sober. A lot of the time when I write about the person that I love, I feel like I’m writing about New York. 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. Sure, there have been people, but it’s really alcohol.”
Lana Del Rey is 26 so that would mean she had her last drink at 17 and she was forced to get sober starting at 14. Which doesn’t seem too much like alcoholism. Maybe she just liked to party. *Pours tequila down throat, blows whistle*
