SINGER Lana Del Rey has revealed her parents sent her to boarding school when she was younger — because they wanted her to kick her alcohol addiction.
The Video Games hitmaker opened up about her demons in a new shoot for GQ magazine. In the issue the singer came under-fire for earlier this week for appearing naked on its front cover.
Lana Del Rey revealed that her parents sent her to Kent school, a strict boarding school in Connecticut, at the age of 14 to help kick her drinking habit.
“I was a big drinker at the time,” she said. “I would drink every day. I would drink alone. I thought the whole concept was so fucking cool. A great deal of what I wrote on Born To Die is about these wilderness years.
“My parents were worried, I was worried. I knew it was a problem when I liked it more than I liked doing anything else. I was like, ‘I’m fucked. I am totally fucked’.
“Like, at first it’s fine and you think you have a dark side — it’s exciting — and then you realize the dark side wins every time if you decide to indulge in it. It’s also a completely different way of living when you know that…a different species of person. It was the worst thing that ever happened to me.”
