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