Celebriety: Lana del Rey
The latest celebrity i didn’t know had troubles with alcohol is Lana del Rey.
That’s really why I got sent to boarding school aged 14 — to get sober.
I was a big drinker at the time. I would drink every day. I would drink alone. I thought the whole concept was so fucking cool.
My parents were worried, I was worried. I knew it was a problem when I liked it more than I liked doing anything else. I was like, I’m fucked. I am totally fucked. Like, at first it’s fine and you think you have a dark side – it’s exciting – and then you realize the dark side wins every time if you decide to indulge in it.
A great deal of what I wrote on Born To Die is about these wilderness years.
It’s been nine years since my last drink.
I feel like my work’s important, but I don’t always feel like I get respect for it…when I feel like people don’t like [my] music and that the 10 years I spent making what I made was not for a good reason, that makes me want to drink again.
A lot of the time when I write about the person that I love, I feel like I’m writing about New York. And when I write about the thing that I’ve lost I feel like I’m writing about alcohol because that was the first love of my life. Sure, there have been people, but it’s really alcohol.
And when I write about the thing that I’ve lost I feel like I’m writing about alcohol because that was the first love of my life.
