Indie music sensation Lana Del Rey covers this month’s issue of Complex Magazine. Lana’s recent appearance on Saturday Night Live caused a bit of controversy in Hollywood with many saying she bombed and others saying she was just nervous.
Check out some highlights below from her interview with the mag where she discusses her wild child past, her bouts with depression and her less than stellar choices in men:
On her interest in mental health: “I was dealing with a lot of emotional stuff so I know what it is like to be at war with yourself.”
On overcoming her past difficulties with partying and a bad relationship that went on for too long have prompted her interest in helping others who are hurting: “I went through different experiences when I was younger. I know how to go from being a non-functioning member of society to a functioning one. I was reckless. Being human is difficult and some make it more difficult. I was one of those people.”
On those who say she is just another pretty girl who can carry a tune: “I’m interested in the gorgeous side of life, but also familiar with the dark side too.”
