Singer opens up about life and mortality in emotional interview
Lana Del Rey has said that she “wishes she were dead” in an emotional new interview.
Del Rey spoke to The Guardian and opened up about her idols, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse. When it was noted that the common link between the pair were their premature deaths, Del Rey responded: “I wish I was dead already.”
The topic of death and mortality continued later on in the interview, with the singer confirming her conviction in the death wish: “I do! I don’t want to have to keep doing this. But I am. That’s just how I feel. If it wasn’t that way, then I wouldn’t say it. I would be scared if I knew [death] was coming, but …”
Elsewhere, she compared her life to that of a bad film. “Family members will come on the road with me and say: ‘Wow, your life is just like a movie!'” she said. “And I’m like: ‘Yeah, a really fucked-up movie.'”
