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.
