The so called new “Nancy Sinatra” got Nylon-ed.

Apart from a full-on j’adore performer/to die-for-diva on stage, Lana Del Rey is undeniably a walking sensation. After posing for last year’s H&M autumn/winter campaign and having covered quite a few magazines, from Vogue UK to Vogue Australia and back, the 60s lolita will now be the covergirl of Nylon Magazine’s November issue. On the occasion of her debut acting career in her own short film named “Tropico” (even though her video-clips were since day one utterly performance oriented) Lana discusses about her infamous past and first taste of fame while she was still penning “Born to Die”‘s first ever hit-song “Blue-Jeans”.
“I know when I wrote it, I was in love with it—I sent it to everyone, saying, ‘Look! This is me in song form. No one in my own circle had a very big reaction, but then Radio 1 started spinning it every day, and that’s when things really started to change.” – Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey is currently taking a break after a long period of worldwide tourring to recharge her batteries and be able to create yet again beautiful songs for her third and most-expected album ever.
