Lana Del Rey is the modern-day embodiment of Old Hollywood glamour, and her latest cover on Galore magazine highlights just that! The “Big Eyes” chanteuse shines in the special collector’s issue, as she frolics on a Malibu beach donning bouncy curls, her signature cat-eye and a warm smile.

The ’60s-inspired editorial spread was shot by the singer’s boyfriend Francesco Carrozzini, and she was also interviewed by her younger sister Chuck. View Lana Del Rey’s Galore photos in the gallery up top, and read some of her interview highlights after the jump!

On new music: Yeah, I just wrote two songs for Tim Burton and Harvey Weinstein’s film called Big Eyes and I’m working on a new record. I’m also always writing small pieces for independent films etc. Dan Heath and Rick Nowels are two of my dearest friends and producers and we are always up to something.”

On who she fucks with in the industry: I fuck with Azealia Banks because I have the same artistic inclinations as her and the same taste in men.”

On why she thinks people give her a hard time: I choose to write about what I know. I choose not to discuss those stories any further than my music. It doesn’t make things easy for me publicly or in interviews and I do interviews because I believe the music is good enough for me to support it as best I can. Sometimes when the things you say and the way you look don’t add up- people are quick to label you as an impersonator or feel like you’re not entitled to the life experiences you’ve really lived. They’re not deep enough to intuit.”

On what she loves: I love the beach. I love when I have those rare moments where I just turn off and don’t worry about anything- maybe put the radio on, drive from LA to Santa Barbara. Maybe take a boat along the coast. I also like to write, late at night near Wilshire Boulevard.”

On who she relates to: “Lil Kim”
