Lana Del Rey Covers Vogue Australia October 2012
Taking a break from working on her "Paradise" edition reissue of Born to Die ahead of its November release date, Lana Del Rey offered up her star power to the cover of the October 2012 issue of Vogue Australia magazine.
The 26-year-old singer/songwriter looked floral fabulous in a Gucci dress for the Nicole Bentley shot front page while dishing about everything from her film writing efforts to stage fright and her public image.
Highlights from Miss Del Rey's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Vogue Australia!
On trying her hand at being a film writer:
"When I was starting, I had a vision of being a writer for film and that’s what I am doing now. I’m so happy. Hopefully I will branch into film work and stay there. That will be my happy place. I’d like to stay in one place for a long time."
On not having anything to say on a new album:
"I said everything I needed to say before I wrote this record. I don’t even talk that much. God, talking in interviews is the most I’ve talked in years."
On stage fright hampering her live performances:
"I love to take care of the songs – that’s my natural place – then, when I get on stage that’s not my elements. Sometimes I kneel down because I am trembling or touch the audience because I don’t know what else to do. But the nice thing about the kids is that they feel bad for me, and pass me soft toys!"
On not caring too much about her public image:
"I never expressed myself through fashion. I loved flowers in my hair, I loved guys who wore leather, but I didn’t get creative… From the age of about seven I had really specific tastes that never changed. I loved wearing white, old fur and gold. It’s funny because now people in fashion kind of came to my rescue when other people said they didn’t like the record but that was unexpected for me because I was never really that. I wear lots of white and blue shirts from Brooks Brothers and shorts when I’m in LA, and I wear this white cotton sundress every day when no-one’s looking at me. I think it’s Topshop."
