Lana Del Rey has admitted that she ‘slept with a lot of guys’ on her way to the top of the music industry.
In the cover interview for Complex magazine’s August/September issue, the singer was asked whether her song F***ed My Way Up To The Top really meant that she slept with music goons to achieve success … and she replied that it was not the case.
‘It’s commentary, like, “I know what you think of me,” and I’m alluding to that,’ she tells the magazine. ‘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.’
Translation: Del Rey was probably promised by the ‘guys’ she slept with that they would help her reach the top, but none of them delivered.
Speaking of other things, Lana admitted that she’s addicted to coffee and cigarettes … and being under the influence of those substances inspire her to write songs.
‘It’s a shame about the health consequences because a lot of great things happen over coffee and a cigarette,’ she says. ‘A lot of great songs were written.’
