Lana Del Rey on her Future: I'm Thinking About What I Want to Be Doing

Lana Del Rey on her Future: I'm Thinking About What I Want to Be Doing

Lana Del Rey shows off some toned tummy on the cover of Nylon magazine’s November 2013 issue, on newsstands October 29.

Here’s what the 27-year-old singer/songwriter had to share with the mag:

On what she’s doing right now: “Right now, I’m doing family and thinking about what I want to be doing. I’m enjoying living easily planting trees, things like that.”

On living in NYC during college: “My mom called me ‘the couch queen’. I would go over different rhymes in my head, like rhyming ‘disco’ with ‘go-go,’ writing about girls with blue mascara and black eyeliner, and about all of the men I had met who I just loved. It was a very liberating, penniless, hilarious, fun, fun time.”

On her younger sister Chuck Grant’s photography work:
“[During shoots,] we’ll talk about creating realities through creative and spiritual intention. I think of the photographs as a series of postcards that represent the different worlds we’ve created or been to – worlds we’ve spent a lot of time in.”

On “Video Games”:
“I know when I wrote it, I was in love with it – I sent it to everyone, saying, ‘Look! This is me in song form.’ No one in my own circle had a very big reaction, but then Fearne Cotton on Radio 1 started spinning it every day, and that’s when things really started to change.”

FYI: Lana is wearing a Calvin Klein Jeans denim button down shirt.

    You are almost 30 and you are thinking about what you want to be doing? Gow up!

    @Right: yes because you should know exactly what ur doing when ur in ur 20s .. even though this is a time when people are still learning and growing. i care for lana or her music but this statement is just such a typical society statement. “know exactly what you’re doing at 18 and go to college and get a degree then have a great career and strive for money success and.. oh maybe have some kids but dont forget that you cant change this job if u are depressed and regret picking a career at a vulnerable age”. some people just dont know. ITS OK NOT TO KNOW.

    liz Says:

    @Right: oh come on. MOST, as in THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE, do not actually know what they want to be doing by age 30. nobody can just make a plan as a kid and have everything work out perfectly. life does not work that way. perhaps you need to grow up.

    @liz: or maybe you must learn how to read? no one said children should know what they want to be, but a 30 yo woman?
    last year lana said she didn’t know what she wanted and she still doesn’t know

    @???:
    ‘no one said children should know what they want to be, but a 30 yo woman?’
    She meant no such thing. You can read but have little grasp of the language apparently.

    I’m her biggest fan. She’s bad ass. Her music is awesome. People just don’t give her a chance

    Kris Says:

    This part of the interview isn’t even the highlight. The rest of the interview talks about the process of her upcoming album, her struggle with alcohol addiction.. why are you publishing the nonsense?

    ??? Says:

    @Fercat:
    “She meant no such thing.” “She”? Who? Lana or Liz?
    “nobody can just make a plan as a kid” This IS what she means.
