Lana Del Rey Wants To Become Angelina Jolie

Jan 21, 2013 11:30 AM


Lana Del Rey is a bohemian beauty!

The sultry 26-year-old songstress, posing in 1960's attire, tells French Magazine Madame Figaro that she's aiming to be more like Brad Pitt's ladylove.

When asked about working with an African charity, Lana says:

    "Music was my passion, but my work with this foundation is more important. I myself had the chance to be [helped by an establishment]. Helping others now feels like it's my turn to give something back. I want to become a sort of Angelina Jolie. Like her, I think fame is nothing in itself, but it can be put to good use - by using it to generate money for charity for example."

We're lovin' Lana's brown suede snake skin-lined jacket. In regards to having an alcohol problem at a young age, she adds:

    "When you no longer drink, it is more difficult to celebrate. In fact, when I quit drinking, I lost my life. It took my all to reinvent myself."

Sounds like this brunette beauty's now on top of the world!

"When I met my boyfriend … we always say that the entire time we were writing for each other, but we didn’t know it until we met each other," she recently told JustJared. "So, you feel like even though you didn’t know the person then all the songs are for them now. That’s romantic."

It sure is!

Lana Del Rey stopped by BBC Radio One Studios in London on Tuesday, and the singer opened up about her music video "Ride" and how she likes "experienced" men!

"[We filmed "Ride"] in Las Vegas and so I got to tell one side of my story that way," Lana said. "Does that involve snogging and caressing older men? Yes that's my style! No, not really, but I do love men who have experienced a lot of life and who have known and done it all. The men in the video were Las Vegas natives and it was fun to have them on board."

Lana continued, "Filming "Ride" was one of the best experiences of my life. We went to the desert in Vegas, I had my sister with me and we spent two days together riding on motorbikes through Nevada with this crew who do that all the time. It was exciting for them too, to show the world what their lives are really like. It was two long days but I loved everything we got from it."

Yesterday Lana tweeted a pic pf her new album cover and wrote, "Thank you MTV for awarding us best alternative band. F*cking honored. The new Record is out today ... THANK YOU DANIEL HEATH, JUSTIN PARKER, EMILE HAYNIE, RICK NOWELS, TIM LARCOMBE AND RICK RUBIN FOR OUR BEAUTIFUL RECORD."

Speaking of beautiful, she looks amazing!

Lana Del Rey Wants To Write Screenplays And "Branch Out Into Film"

Sep 5, 2012 02:30 PM

lana-screenplay-230.jpgDespite the fact that she released her first album 9 months ago, Lana Del Rey has revealed in a new interview with Australian Vogue that she wants to break out in the film industry.

"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," Lana told the mag. "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."

Del Rey also revealed that she often feels uncomfortable when onstage. "I love to take care of the songs – that's my natural place – then, when I get on stage that's not my element. Sometimes I kneel down because I am trembling or touch the audience because I don’t know what else to do." Well that would explain a lot!

Wonder what her first screenplay will be about?
