Yesterday we got a first look at a nude Lana Del Rey on the cover of the October issue of British GQ magazine (Checkout the cover here). Photographer Mariano Vivanco captures the ‘Born To Die‘ songstress for her risqué, yet classy editorial, bringing us a sexier side of the 26-year-old that we don’t usually get to see.
Lana opens up to the magazine about her battle with alcohol addiction at a very young age.
“That’s really why I got sent to boarding school aged 14 — to get sober. I was a big drinker at the time. I would drink every day. I would drink alone. I thought the whole concept was so f***ing cool. A great deal of what I wrote on Born To Die is about these wilderness years. A lot of the time when I write about the person that I love, I feel like I’m writing about New York. And when I write about the thing that I’ve lost I feel like I’m writing about alcohol because that was the first love of my life. Sure, there have been people, but it’s really alcohol”, Lana explains to GQ.
