Lana Del Rey: 'I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry'
The 'Summertime Sadness' singer said none of the men had helped her to achieve success
Lana Del Rey has admitted to sleeping with a “lot of guys” in the music industry – but insists that none of them “helped me get my record deals”.
Referring to her new song “F***ed My Way Up to the Top” from her album Ultraviolence, the singer said that the lyrics alluded to her past erotic encounters and were in recognition of the fact that, “I know what you think of me”.
"It's commentary," she said.
"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."
Speaking to Complex magazine, Del Rey said she didn’t agree with people who say relationships are supposed to be difficult.
“Everything else is so hard; hopefully love is the one thing that is actually fun,” she said.
And the 27-year-old said that she had “demolished” her own relationship of the past three years “through tons of depression and insecurity".
“Now it’s just an untenable relationship, impossible because of my emotional instability.”
She explained that physicality was the most important element of a relationship to her: “I like a physical love. I like a hands-on love.
“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.”
Asked what she thought being in a “good place” meant, Del Rey said: “Feeling really happy and just circumstantially like nothing’s going wrong, which becomes more difficult but that’s only my experience.”
And when it comes to her art, De Rey is adamant on retaining “continuity” throughout her music.
She said: “Not being misleading in terms of your personal aesthetic, like your psyche coming through design-wise and musically - I like continuity.”
Finally, she conceded that “this whole experience has f***ed me up”.
“But it’s not a pessimistic place. The music is always good, in my opinion. That’s what I expect now from my career, that the music is going to be great and the reaction’s going to be f***ed up.”
