Lana Del Rey Covers 'Complex' February 2012

Lana Del Rey Covers 'Complex' February 2012

Lana Del Rey gets caught in the rain on the cover of Complex magazine’s February/March 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 25-year-old entertainer had to share:

On not reading press: “I’m pretty much switched off from it. What other people have been saying doesn’t have anything to do with me because I never gave any long interviews to anyone. Ever. Everything is basically fiction.”

On authenticity: “If you consider the definition of authenticity, it’s saying something and actually doing it. I write my own songs. I made my own videos. I pick my producers. Nothing goes out without my permission. It’s all authentic.”

On love: “When I found somebody who I fell in love with, it made me feel different than I felt the rest of the day. It was electrifying. That’s what inspired the ‘Off to the Races’ melodies. That’s one of the times when you’re feeling electrified by someone else and they make you happy to be alive.”

    Lana I see this mystique thing you’re trying to pull off, but I’m just not interested.

  • kayla

    as authentic as your lips I bet.

  • Guy

    Give her a chance guys! Don’t ride her off because of what she is wearing or what she looks like because that doesn’t matter. I don’t see what the whole obsession with clothing and looks are but I think she looks fine. I mean, you are entitled to your opinion but at least have something to black it up, I don’t see how this is “gross” or “wrong” she is standing under an umbrella. What do you want her to do? Take a snapshot of her intestines, would that make her more interesting?

  • Jane

    She’s actually pretty good. keep doing your thing Lana!

    lol this girl is a mess

  • Mlllllle

    Love you more, than those b(i)tches on line…

  • ryan

    the video game song is actually pretty good.
    cool lyrics.
    she is just strange as hell.

  • rowley

    holy shiz, she’s gaining traction now. or else she is popular everywhere else except in the U.S. or people are just curious and checking her out even tho they hate her?
    because i went to go listen to video games again and it already has over 21 million hits on youtube.

    Total phony. And those fake duck lips LMAO
    sheeple t(w)eens are so dumb it hurts
    before she was a pseudo-hipster :

    I believe in giving people a chance so after her terrible snl performance, I went on youtube and watched a bunch of her Music Videos and performances and I have to say.. sorry but the girl is a terrible singer and performer. She has zero stage presence and her voice is very very mediocre, even for a pop singer. I don’t understand where all this hype for her is coming from.

  • chanel

    What’s the bulge under her dress in the picture?

  • butch

    ^^my thoughts exactly. i don’t know much about this artist, but saw this picture of her today and wondered if she’s transgender? Is she? I didn’t watch the fated SNL performance, but I will now. I’m curious to hear her voice/songs.

  • Cate

    I lightened up the shadows and midtones and toned down the contrast and ummmm that certainly looks like a package of man junk under there… maybe that explains the duck lips and super deep husky voice? LMAO whatev’s to each their own.

  • Ivana

    Her music is great, she is an artist in every sense of that word! I love her! She deserved all the hype!

  • JustSaying_GURL

    The only reason why people are being so negative is because she is beautiful. Girls hate other beautiful girls. Sad :’(

    i respect all your opinions but she will become big soon and i can see it. she’s gorgeous and yes maybe she did get those lips done but nonetheless she is gorgeous. her songwriting is authentic, original. and honestly having a strong voice does make you a successful artist, lana may not but so do other legends-they have this type of voice that makes them special. you don’t need to have a strong voice to be remembered. right? okay. and to be honest she does deserve the hype, she definitely does after seeing nicki minaj, jay-z, kanye west, LMFAO and all those other mainstream artists being obsessed over.
