Lana Del Rey: 'T, New York Times Style' Feature!

Lana Del Rey poses for Terry Richardson in a feature from T, The New York Times Style Magazine.

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

On breaking into the industry: “I mean, I met everyone who is anyone in the music industry over the last six years and I was unsignable. That’s what I was told by everyone. I would play my songs, explain what I was trying to do, and I’d get, ‘You know who’s No. 1 in 13 countries right now? Ke$ha.’”

On whether her lips are natural or not: “They’re real lips, I mean … in real life my lips don’t look that big. I think because I cartoonized the footage of myself in the video for ‘Video Games’ things look exaggerated.”

On feeling anxious before performances: “I’m not by nature a showstopper. I love to write and play songs, but onstage, all these things come into play. I’m always saying to myself, Don’t mess up. Don’t mess up.”
