Lana Del Rey isn’t at all happy with her recent interview with The Guardian.
During her chat with the British publication, the songstress made a comment that took the internet by storm. Lana boldly declared “I wish I was dead already,” and a viral headline was instantly born. Not surprisingly, she isn’t at all happy that her response to the interview’s question helped websites generate tons of pageviews.
According to MTV News, Lana Del Rey fired back at the Guardian on Twitter. The tweet arrived on the micro-blogging site earlier this week, though she later deleted them from her account. As always, Lana was unable to remove the comments before some of her fans and followers took notice. We’re sure celebrities hate it when that happens.
Lana Del Rey vented:
“i regret trusting the guardian- i didn’t want to do an interview but the journalist was persistent. Alexis was masked as a fan but was hiding sinister ambitions and angles Maybe he’s actually the boring one looking for something interesting to write about… His leading questions about death and persona were calculated.”
Since the singer was upset about the interview, that meant her fans were up in arms about the situation as well. The Guardian scribe Tim Jonze, the man who had the chin-wag with Lana Del Rey, was reportedly bombarded with angry Twitter comments from the singer’s legion of supporters. However, Jonze stands behind the interview.
“Ultimately, the problem with Lana’s complaint is that she doesn’t seem to know what she’s actually complaining about. She’s not alleging that I made up her quotes, nor is she claiming that they’ve been ‘twisted’ or that we’ve printed them out of context. Instead she seems annoyed by the fact I wanted her to say interesting things and asked questions that caused her to do so. Well sorry, Lana, but that’s just me doing my job.”
Lana Del Rey made the admittedly shocking comment while discussing late musicians Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse. At some point during the chat, she boldly declared, “I wish I was dead already.”
When Jonze delved further into the story behind the remark, Lana said, “But I do. I do! I don’t want to have to keep doing this. But I am… 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…”
