Lana Del Rey knows you think she slept her way to the top

Lana Del Rey

Last time Lana Del Rey did an interview, she ended up talking about how she wishes to die young and ended up getting a talking to by Frances Bean Cobain. And that’s why we don’t take life advice from Ke$ha songs. Anyway, Lana has a new interview out with Complex, and in it she actually shows a little self-awareness and a sense of humor, and what do you know she’s actually kind of jovial when she isn’t donning her world-weary schtick like a cloak …

There are a few different ways to take your song “Fucked My Way Up to the Top.” Is it about people not wanting to give you credit for your success? Or is it about fucking people to get 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.

All right, brownie points to Lana on that one. Just goes to show that when people understand how to go from ON to off, they’re a lot better to be around with because they’re not always banging out their schtick. Look, I get that image is super important and you’re an artist and all that, but it gets tiring after a while. For example …

Intern: Lana, I’m going on a coffee run. Want me to grab something for you?
Lana: Get me a dark blonde like Marilyn Monroe. Kiss kiss.
Intern: … Wow, that was almost language.
