In a chat with The Telegraph, singer Lana Del Rey revealed she has been sober for eight years. She had a bit of a drinking problem as a teen. It was bad enough for her to have to stop consuming altogether.
Del Rey, born Elizabeth Grant, said, "When I was very young, I was sort of floored by the fact that my mother and my father and everyone I knew was going to die one day, and myself too. I had a sort of a philosophical crisis. I couldn't believe that we were mortal. For some reason that knowledge sort of overshadowed my experience. I was unhappy for some time. I got into a lot of trouble. I used to drink a lot. That was a hard time in my life."
The singer also said she knows people want her to fail. She said, "People just want to see me go off the rails. That's the only reason they're watching. They just want to see what happens." Lana, that's your ticket to show them what you are made of.
Are you hoping Lana Del Rey goes off the rails? Are you rooting for her?
