Singer Lana Del Rey is taking a six-month hiatus from stage and studio after confessing her career has drained her of inspiration.

The Young & Beautiful hitmaker has announced her recent performance at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, Illinois will be her last in a while.

In a statement released on Thursday (22Aug13), she said, "I don't think (my current career's) been conducive to writing, being on the road and all that.

"I don't really feel inspired to write at all, but beforehand, when I was in Brooklyn for nine years... I was kind of a night owl and just walked around and met weird people. That was me picking up life experiences and meshing them into my own. That really did it for me.

"Actually, Lollapalooza is my last live commitment. It's too bad 'cause it's been such a long time since the last record. I really feel like I need six months to live again, time to be, like, normal or abnormal. I don't have anyone writing anything for me. It's such an internal well and if it's not full."
