Lana Del Rey has admitted that people constantly talking about her has made her rise to fame "bittersweet".

The singer, who shot to stardom after her video for 'Video Games' made her a YouTube sensation, told Billboard that her career had taken a "funny turn" since her increase in popularity.

She said:

I'd rather it was just as simple as being just the songs and no one else taking about it at all, because it makes things more bittersweet instead of just clear and easy. It just seems to have taken a funny turn.


Del Rey went on to add: "I'm not really sure if it'll come back around. I don't know. But the record is really good. I have that."

Earlier this week (January 11), the singer admitted that she was still finding it difficult to adjust to being famous. She also recently attracted a notable fan in the form of Prime Minister David Cameron.

Lana Del Rey will release her debut album 'Born To Die' on January 30. The tracklisting is as follows:

'Born To Die'
'Off To The Races'
'Blue Jeans
'Video Games'
'Diet Mountain Dew'
'National Anthem'
'Dark Paradise'
'Radio'
'Carmen'
'Million Dollar Man'
'Summertime Sadness'
'This Is What Makes Us Girls'
