Lana Del Rey Reveals How Politics Have Affected Her New Music

Lana Del Rey is flawless on the cover of Elle UK‘s June 2017 issue, on newsstands May 16.

Here’s what the 31-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On how American politics have effected her music: “It would be weird to be making a record during the past 18 months and not comment on how [the political landscape] was making me or the people I know feel, which is not good. It would be really difficult if my views didn’t line up with what a lot of what people are saying.”

On how she is as a girlfriend: “I actually am the best girlfriend because I only get into a relationship if I’m really excited about it. I’m unconditionally understanding, very loving and I like to be with that person for a lot of the time.”

On what she looks for in a relationship: “For me, the dream is to have a little bit of edge, the sexiness, the magnetism, the camaraderie, be on the same page and all that stuff, but without the fallout that comes from a person who is really selfish and puts only their needs first, which is like a lot of frontmen if we’re talking about musicians! I’m going to write a book one day called, ‘The curse of the frontman and why you should always date a bassist.’”
