The 28 year-old singer opens up about reputation of being stuck in constant misery, "I find that most people I meet figure I kind of want to kill myself."
Undoubtedly, one common aspect of Lana Del Rey's music is the constant element of sadness.
And with songs like 'Born To Die' and 'Summertime Sadness,' many music lovers believe the 28 year-old singer purposely tries to portray that image.
But according to Lana, it isn't her with the issues, it is other people.
While covering the latest issue of Rolling Stone, in which she is seen seductively cuddling a cat in bed, the American recording artist reveals she isn't miserable all the time.
"Well, I feel f--king crazy," Lana told the music magazine. "But I don't think I am. People make me feel crazy."
Del Rey also spoke of her well-publicized quotes printed in an interview with The Guardian in which she expresses a desire to be dead, saying, "I wish I was dead already."
These controversial remarks seem to follow her everywhere she goes. "I find that most people I meet figure I kind of want to kill myself anyway. So, it comes up every time," she explained to Rolling Stone.
The 'Blue Jeans' singer is known for having a sombre style when it comes to writing lyrics, but she is by no means asking for help through her music.
"I just don't want them to hear it at all," she stated. "I'm very selfish. I make everything for me, kind of. I mean, every little thing, down to the guitar and the drums. It's just for me. I don't want them to hear it and think about it. It's none of their business!"
Del Rey also reflected on her infamous 'Saturday Night Live' appearance back in 2012, her performance of two songs may have been received with negative reviews from critics, but the mainstream exposure benefitted immensely.
"It wasn't dynamic, but it was true to form," she recalled. "Everyone I knew suddenly wasn't so sure about me. They were like, 'Maybe I don't want to be associated with her - not a great reputation.'"
This new issue of Rolling Stones will hit stores on Friday (July 18th).
