In a recent article for The Guardian, a few quotes from Lana Del Rey painted a bleak picture. The article starts off with Lana saying, “I wish I was dead already” before elaborating, “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.”

Lana also talks about life on the road, her new album, relationships, and almost working with Lou Reed, but the focus of the story was clear, especially with a headline like this:
