Audio Of Lana Del Rey Wishing For An Early Death Leaks

Lana Del Rey admitted she wished she were already dead in an interview with The Guardian last week, but after reading her words she’s decided she’s horrified and blames the journalist interviewing her.

She Tweeted (though they’re since deleted):

“I regret trusting the Guardian. I didn’t want to do an interview but the journalist was persistent. Alexis (sic) was masked as a fan but was hiding sinister ambitions and angles. Maybe he’s actually the boring one looking for something interesting to write about. His leading questions about death and persona were calculated.”

The journalist penned a response, saying while his question WAS provocative, she had every right to say ‘no.’

“Besides the fact Lana doesn’t remember who actually interviewed her, there are a number of things about her statement that sound a bit iffy to me. She may well have not wanted to do the interview but it certainly didn’t seem like it – she was delightful company for the 70 minutes we spent talking, and was happy to continue over the allotted time when the PR knocked on the door, an hour in, and asked how we were getting on. I was not “masked” as a fan, I genuinely like her music and really liked her too – her life story is fascinating, she was refreshingly open when answering even the most difficult question and she seemed completely in love with music.”

“It’s not pleasant asking a pop star if she thinks the idea of dying young herself is attractive – it’s a dark question, but it’s not a leading one. She has every opportunity to say no. And she can hardly complain about the subject matter: she’d been talking about her icons all dying young, she named her debut album Born to Die and had spent much of the 50 minutes previous to this point telling me how miserable she was.”
