Lana Del Rey thinks people ”know” her through her lyrics.
The ‘Blue Jeans’ star said thinks fans can relate to the realism of her gloomy lyrics and respect her for not compromising with her tracks.
She told US radio station KROQ: ”I think the people who sort of feel like they know me from my lyrics, and I think that they feel what I write about is what really went down and how I really feel about it.
”I think maybe what people who like me like about me is the fact that I really believe in myself and what I do and I never compromise with anything that I do in my life – not lyrically, not in reality.
”I never say anything just to rhyme over sugary pop songs. I really care about documenting my life in a musical fashion. So, I think, people that like me are actually artists.”
Lana has proved a controversial figure since her debut single ‘Video Games’, but added the version of her which people are debating is far from her actual personality.
She added: ”The internet right now is creating their own person for themselves to play with. And that’s their prerogative.
”I wrote every word on my album. There isn’t nothing that I didn’t write.
”And I really have done everything that I said I did do. I think the kids know that. The rest is just a story that somebody else made up.”
Lana Del Rey’s debut album ‘Born to Die’ is out now.
