Lana Del Rey answers questions from Grimes, Kim Kardashian, Stevie Nicks, Sean Ono Lennon, BØRNS, and Marina and The Diamonds in news L’Official USA.
Grimes elicited a curious answer to her question about artificial intelligence, with Del Rey saying the increased use of drones excites her but also makes her nervious. "Because I’ve had such bad experiences with drones," she says, declining to add further context.
Kim Kardashian: Who was your biggest beauty influence growing up?
Lana: I was sort of a late bloomer with style and everything really. I loved Joan Baez—I just really identified with her character. I loved Lauren Bacall. I saw a rerun of The Dick Clark Show with Janice Joplin on it and she had feathers in her hair and I thought she was so cool, so her as well. And I really like what you’re doing now. I love your style update, with your hair and the nudes and mauves. I’m watching you. I’ve got my eye on you.
Kim Kardashian: If you weren’t writing or making music, what would you be doing?
Lana: I would be a doula, or maybe working with kids.
Sean Ono Lennon: Do you feel like the decline of pop music culture is on the horizon? What about the decline of civilization in general? Is there a connection between the two?
Lana: Probably, but I don’t really know what it is. I think really, there’s a rise of sociopathy and narcissism, and a mental health crisis. Everyone’s kind of becoming aware of the fact that that needs to be fully addressed. Maybe there is a link. It’s probably related to consciousness.
