Lana Del Rey to 'Complex': I've Slept with a Lot of Guys in the Industry

Lana Del Rey looks ethereal on the cover of Complex magazine’s August/September 2014 issue.

Here’s what the 29-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On hooking up in the industry and the concept of ‘sleeping your way to the top’: “It’s commentary, like, “I know what you think of me,” and I’m alluding to that. You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry, but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying.”

On love: “I like a physical love. I like a hands-on love. [Pauses.] How can I say this without getting into too much trouble? I like a tangible, passionate love. For me, if it isn’t physical, I’m not interested. Everything else is so hard; hopefully love is the one thing that is actually fun.”

On dealing with critics: “The good thing about catching so much grief from critics is that you literally do not f*cking care. It put me in a mind frame where I expect things not to go right, because they generally don’t.”

    what a suprise

  • Teeter

    She really needs to stop giving interviews, apparently making a good impression is not her jam.

  • Jennay

    i love her.

  • hah

    @Jennay: idiot

  • Lee

    Dumb as a brick, no talent, pu$$y all she got

  • ted

    ……….who?

  • jeanie

    Whoa…TMI. We did not need to know that she is a ho.

  • Garrison Halibut

    No longer a fan.

  • Maybe Interested Now…

    I wonder if she is down with anal?

  • Taylor

    Physical love is not love…That’s plain LUST. If she’s looking for love in lust, she’ll be searching forever. Love can be fun even if it isn’t strictly physical!

  • Stanley

    Oh my God! You guys take her opinions too much seriously. She likes sex, she likes passionate relationships! So what? Who doesn’t? Get over it. Lana makes amazing music, that´s what matters.

  • xyzc

    I dont like her, but I appreciate her honesty

  • xyzc

    @Taylor:

    Get off of ur high horse, dude

  • hehe

    uh uh uh, make a list like Lindsay. I wanna see that.
    But hands down, she basically called herself a slut and well… I admire her guts for saying that.
    Tho I’m one of those girls who doesn’t sleep around and this disgraces even me as a woman, but whatever…she’s being honest.

  • Del Fake

    Shut your f…king mouth, loser. This woman is so dumb.
    Look, I’m not surprised. I think she was trying to say it in her interviews. a) She said her father didn’t know what she was doing some years ago.
    b) She said years ago she was doing things that she couldn’t say in her interviews because people would not understand.
    c) There are many pros..titutes in her videos.
    I just “knew” this w…rore was selling her body.

  • Del Fake

    @Garrison Halibut: No longer a fan? Why? It was just a stupid interview. Her interviews are always stupid. Nothing new.

  • Lydia

    Gee, did we really need confirmation that she’s cheap and trying to f_ck her way to the upper end of the middle?

  • http://www.justjared.com ae em

    If her music genre is not mainstream then why would anyone want to invest big money in it? Lana should change her music if she wants phenomenal contracts. She looks like a young and healthy woman. Sex should be fun. The article makes it sound like it was waste of time.

  • Lizz

    Never been a fan. Never thought she had any talent and this interview just confirmed what I already thought. Autotune was created for “artists” like her. Shall I remind everyone of her SNL performance?

  • Jordan

    @Lizz: Actually, i just saw her live a few weeks back and her voice is incredible. After SNL she went away and worked on singing for many months and she has improved a ton!

  • liz

    she is confusing me, it seems like she is either just trolling or purposely trying to sabotage her own reputation by saying all these shameful/controversial things. if you want attention, fine. but what dafuq do you get out of calling yourself a s|ut ?

  • António

    OK NOW LISTEN TO ME YOU ALL! YOU MUST STOP! SHE IS OUR QUEEN! THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CREATURE ON EARTH! WHY YOU NOT-FANS JUDGE SLUTS AND PROSTITUTION STOP! WHEN THEY ARE ALL LIKE YOU! THAT KIND OF PEOPLE YOU TALK ABOUT THEY ARE HUMAN BEINGS TOO! WITH FLESH AND BLOOD LIKE YOU! IF LANA LIKES TO SLEEP WITH A LOT OF MEN LET LANA SLEEP! IT IS NOT FROM YOUR BUSINESS! NOW WHAT YOU SHOULD CONCERN IS MUSIC! ARE YOU REALLY STUCK IN SNL? WAS A BAD PERFORMANCE AND WHAT? ALL THE SINGERS NEED TO HAVE THEM TOO! THEY ARE NOT PERFECT! AND SHOULD I TELL YOU HOW SHE IS A GOOD SINGER!!!!!!! HOW SHE SINGS LIKE A GOD! LIKE SHE SAID “A FRESH MEN GENERATION OF DEGENERATE BEAUTY QUEENS” THAT IS WHAT SHE IS! ALL HER IS A DEGENERATION OF BEAUTY QUEEN! WE ALL NOW SHE MADE A RINOPLASTY AND PUT SOME SILICON IN HER LIPS OR BOTOX OR WHATEVER! BUT TOO BORN LIKE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CREATURE ON EARTH! NOW WHAT WE ALL SHOULD DO IS TO THANK TO HER DOCTORS THAT MADE HER FACE LIKE THAT AND BOW DOWN TO THE QUEEN OF PERFECTION!

  • Isabelle

    She is amazing and perfect, and its funny how honesty freaks everyone out! She is in the music industry, and she is young and beautiful, she has OBVIOUSLY slept with guys she has met working, as everyone else has in every other industry. We need women saying things like this out loud, why do we pretend we think is shameful to enjoy youth and have fun?? She is incredibly talented and smarter than the average. I guess that is where the problem lies, the average is the people commenting negatively, they just don’t have the brain cells to understand how incredibly cool her non bullshit attitude is.

  • Jordan

    If you read the ENTIRE interview , you’d see that what she is saying is completely different that what is being said here. The major tabloids and gossip websites take everything out of context and sensationalize to attract people to read their less than quality journalism. Read the whole interview before you judge a single quote.

  • Truth

    Whatever loser wrote this needs to learn the difference between “to” and “too”. Because clearly the whole staff is a bunch of morons to miss such a glaring mistake.

  • Whitney

    @Isabelle: I agree with everything you said:D

    People need to stop putting themselves in a box
