Lana Del Rey: 'I've Slept With a Lot of Guys in the Industry'
By Antoinette Bueno
Lana Del Rey clearly had no filter in a new interview with Complex magazine for their August/September issue, in which the controversial singer admits to sleeping with "a lot of guys" in the music industry.
When talking about her new song "F*cked My Way Up To The Top," Lana, 29, pretty much admits the song title is literal -- only she didn't even get any of the perceived benefits.
"It's commentary, like, 'I know what you think of me,' and I’m alluding to that," she says. "You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry, but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying.”
Lana was previously engaged to musician Barrie-James O'Neil and was rumored to have dated Marilyn Manson, rapper A$AP Rocky and Guns 'N Roses' Axl Rose.
In the candid new interview, Lana also talks about what she's looking for in a relationship, and how that influenced the title of her new album Ultraviolence.
"I like a physical love. I like a hands-on love. How can I say this without getting into too much trouble?" she asks. "I like a tangible, passionate love. For me, if it isn’t physical, I’m not interested. ... I feel connected to two emotions -- aggression and softness. I like that luxe sound of the word 'ultra' and the mean sound of the word 'violence' together. I like that two worlds can live in one."
