GQ’s Sean Fennessey sat down with Del Rey AKA Lizzie Grant AKA “The Kreayshawn of Indie” and talked about her rapid ascendancy.
GQ: You’ve become a lightning rod for a lot of conversations.
Lana Del Rey: It could be about a bug. I don’t even do anything in real life. I just sit in my studio and write, I call my friends, I watch television. I don’t do anything. Write crazy stuff if you want to. I’ve been telling [my publicists], it has nothing to do with me. I mean, everything has nothing to do with me. I don’t know what they’re talking about. I don’t know what they’re talking about. Not like you care that much. You’re just writing the article.
GQ: I just haven’t seen something like this in a long time.
Lana Del Rey: Are you being serious?
GQ: I wouldn’t be here talking to you if you hadn’t sparked a conversation.
Lana Del Rey: I’ve been reading tabloids since I was nine. I love a good story. Some of the talking points took on a tone that really had nothing to do with me.
