Over the past few months, Lana Del Rey has given a series of exhausting interviews that you haven’t seen on this site because I’m pretty sure I just said they were exhausting. Pay attention. And now she’s given a new one to Complex that has everybody all a tizzy because there is jackshit happening thanks to Comic-Con starting tomorrow. Anyway, this time around she’s complaining about banging industry people who promised her a record deal, and then didn’t, so let’s all pretend that’s super scandalous. Human beings touching fuck-parts for a variety of motives?! Why, I never…

There are a few different ways to take your song “Fucked My Way Up to the Top.” Is it about people not wanting to give you credit for your success? Or is it about fucking people to get to the top? It’s commentary, like, “I know what you think of me,” and I’m alluding to that. 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.

Keep in mind, she banged Marilyn Manson, Axl Rose, and presumably Lady Gaga and Lindsay Lohan at the same time, after she scored a record deal, so I’m guessing these industry types weren’t horrifying drug beasts the way she likes. I can see how that might be annoying. Not to mention Axl Rose at least offers you a ham sandwich when he’s done fucking you. He may have just found it under his bed, and it’s not so much a sandwich as a shoe with bologna in it, but it’s the thought that counts.

    This chick reminds me a lot of Amy WInehouse: Way more famous than she deserves to be given the amount of talent she has, talks about how self-destructive she is, and (presumably) soon to be dead.

    She’s a hot chick with an interesting voice.
    ‘Tis all.
    Oh, she has great hair. Let’s discuss that ad nauseum.

    She got this far, and doesn’t know that Satan doesn’t keep his promises? She needs to visit us for a tutorial.

    A tutorial for her, a fun weekend for us.

  4. People in positions of power use it to take advantage of those weaker than they are? Why, that’s never happened before in human history.

    Has it occurred to you that she might be referring to the fact that people think she fucked her way to the top as annoying? She’s admitting that she had sex with industry people, but not as a way to start or further her career. So presumably, people assuming her success is predicated on that when she’s saying it’s not would annoy her. That quote is hardly clear as to what part of the quote she’s referring to as “annoying,” but, you know, since she’s a woman and all, let’s just assume that bitch is just pissed that screwing people in the industry didn’t get her a record deal. Because clearly she hasn’t been skewered by the media and public enough.

    Let’s hear some more about how you’re a progressive Liberal man who respects women again, Fish. That’s always good for a laugh.

    I still don’t know how she got a record deal. She can only sing in one key, but not live, don’t make her sing live for fuck’s sake. And the bitch is soooo boring. Even the name of her new album is stupid. I wrote a song when I was 14 called Ultraviolent and I ended up scrapping it cuz even at 14 I knew it was a retarded concept.

  8. You don’t have to be a conservative to acknowledge that most of the entertainment industry is run by people in power handing out contracts to anyone willing to fuck them.

    I’m a bleeding heart liberal and even I know that.

    OF COURSE this chick fucked someone to get where she is.

    That’s how it fucking works.

    Let’s hope these are the last words she utters prior to disappearing into obscurity/making a sex tape.

    Didn’t this woman perform at some Kardashian shit event, like a wedding or peeing in the pool??!!

    It must be true. I’ve never heard of her until just now.

    Pretty pop starlet creating media attention for herself.
    There R easier ways but it helps to have great tits for the exposing.

    1) Ulatrviolence is a pretty good CD. Very Mazzy Starrish.

    2) I would not see her live because she doesn’t seem to have much of a stage presence.

    3) I’ma little bummed she’s such a slut. Taking her out of my spank bank rotation.

  14. Everything I’ve ever heard come out of this woman’s mouth has me convinced she’s an absolute fucking idiot, who is just trying to be ‘shocking’ for attention. Even her song lyrics are full-on try-hard Taylor Momsen-level bullshit. We get it, you have sex. So do most women, they just don’t feel the need to soapbox it for attention all the fucking time.

    Unless they’re Rihanna or Miley. Or Audrey. Or Crystal. Or … fuck, who am I kidding? Pretty much any female featured on this site. Way to raise the bar, wenches.

  15. Maybe the reason she didn’t get a record deal is she f**ks like she sings, mediocre.

  16. The guy at Tower Records who worked the register doesn’t count as “industry people”.

    What did we do before we had Wikipedia?
    She was in a relationship with Kassidy ex-member Barrie-James O’Neill from August 2011 until June 2014.[167][168][169] Previously, Del Rey was in a relationship with alternative rock and antifolk musician, Steven Mertens, who produced her debut album, Lana Del Ray, before it was re-recorded by David Kahne.[9] She was also in a seven-year relationship with the head of a record label, who was a great inspiration to her and whom she calls the love of her life.[170] Del Rey lives near Hancock Park in Koreatown, Los Angeles, with her siblings, Caroline and Charlie.[171][53] Del Rey is Roman Catholic.[172]
    So, the “love of her life” screwed her out a record deal or is just a liar that’s doing the Katy Perry switcheroo (remember Katy Perry went from being a fundamentalist Christian and wannabe Gospel star to “kissing a girl and liking it”)?
