Lana Del Rey Declares: “I Wish I Was Dead Already”
Her music is dark, her disposition is dismal and it turns out Lana Del Rey isn’t ever sure she wants to be alive anymore.
The “Summertime Sadness” songstress told The Guardian that her life is pretty messed up despite all the blessings of success she’s earned.
Del Rey noted that Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse are both major inspirations for her and discussed the notion that dying young is glamorous.
She explained, “I don’t know. Ummm, yeah. I wish I was dead already. 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 …”
“Family members will come on the road with me and say, ‘Wow, your life is just like a movie!’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, a really f*cked-up movie.’”
