Lana Del Rey shocked her fans by saying she wished she was dead. The 27-year old singer, who just released her new album “Ultraviolence”, said the provocative words while speaking about two of her biggest inspirations – Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain. What links them together is that they both died at 27, the same age as her.
“I wish I was dead already … I don’t want to keep doing this. But I am,” Lana said during an interview with The Guardian newspaper. When asked if she means she doesn’t want to be a musician any more, she just replied: “Everything. That’s just how I feel. If it wasn’t that way, then I wouldn’t say it. I would be scared if I knew death was coming, but …”
The singer also claimed that both she and her boyfriend, Barrie-James O’Neill, use to say that they want to die young. “We have a difficult road. He’s a very dark character. He has months where it’s a really dark stretch of writing and waiting, he has his total own world so…,” she said.
