Lana Del Rey Poses For ‘Fader’ Magazine, Talks Feminism & Sleeping Her Way To The Top: 9 Pics

With Ultraviolence almost upon us (June 17 really can’t come quick enough), Lana Del Rey is finally ready to up her promo game. The “West Coast” diva covers the summer music issue of Fader magazine and posed for a casual but still gorgeous photo shoot. She looks like the stunningly beautiful girl next door. If you live in a really cool part of Brooklyn.

The interview comprehensively documents the 27-year-old’s slow but inevitable rise to fame and her struggle to find herself, both as a person and as an artist. Some of the most interesting tidbits include the revelations that Lana suffers from a mystery illness and depression, and has no interest in feminism. “For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept,” she admits.

One of the most fascinating tidbits is what could be the back story of much-speculated on Ultraviolence track “Fucked My Way Up To The Top”. “I had a seven-year relationship with the head of this label, and he was a huge inspiration to me,” the glum songstress reveals. “I’ll tell you later when more people know. He never signed me, but he was like my muse, the love of my life.” See a behind-the-scenes video of Lana’s Fader shoot after the jump.
