In Lana Del Rey‘s cover story for Complex, she speaks on issues of authenticity and makes a few good points:

“If you consider the definition of authenticity,” Lana says, “it’s saying something and actually doing it. I write my own songs. I made my own videos. I pick my producers.

There’s nothing to hide.”
