Lana Del Rey is a talented Singer/Songwriter and an amazing person. She's always been kind to her fans and all of her fans adore her. She makes bold statements and often gets criticism for them, but she is extremely intelligent and talented. She studied Metaphysics/Philosophy in college and has always been interested in new advances in Science. She has not been "bought a career." She struggled to get famous for years, and it wasn't until she put out a music video for her song "Video Games" that she got recognition. She has hundreds of unreleased songs that are all amazing! She also has gotten through many personal struggles, including alcoholism. She is inspirational in the fact that she never gave up on herself and did exactly what she wanted to do. She doesn't care what her critics think, she does what she wants and feels she needs to do. She's in this industry for the music, not the fame. She tries to keep her personal life private and she doesn't do many interviews, because she's often misquoted and is criticized for her performances. She's struggled with performing because she has severe anxiety, so she's much more comfortable in smaller venues. Her work is always beautiful and it's always original. She's so underrated. She's one of my favorite artists in the world because of everything I just said! Listen to her music and story before you judge her.
