On the cover of the newly launched magazine L’Officiel is none other than Lana Del Rey. The new USA edition features a lengthy interview with questions from Kim Kardashian West, Courtney Love, Stevie Nicks, Grimes, Alessandro Michele, Sean Ono Lennon, Marina (and the Diamonds), BØRNS and Rick Nowels.
It also includes a selection of questions sent by fans which were submitted by you to us! Thank you to William Defebaugh at L’Officiel for working with us to make this possible, and thank you to our visitors for your submissions!
In the interview, Lana talks about everything from her literary influences and beauty icons, to her views on artificial intelligence and if our personalities are shaped by the way we look. Lana also reveals if she can cook, her Broadway Musical project and much more. Here’s a snippet:
Kim Kardashian West: If you weren’t writing or making music, what would you be doing?
Lana: I would be a doula, or maybe working with kids.
Courtney Love: Why have you stolen my unconscious and made me your musical slave?
Lana: [Laughs] If you had told me that one day Courtney Love would listen to me on repeat, I would just not have believed you.
Stevie Nicks: Dear Lana, are we planning on spending the summer in our fantastic apartments in the Hollywood sign?
Lana: Stevie! Sweet angel! Yes don’t worry I’ve already began planning the summer but I was thinking we could spend half of our time on that boat we were talking (maybe shoot a video for “Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems.”) I was thinking we could kick it off on the Summer Solstice — what do you think?
BØRNS: If you could change any one thing about the music industry, what would it be?
Lana: More female producers.
Rick Nowels: Did you read poetry as a teenager?
Lana: Yes. One of my biggest influences was my 10th grade teacher, Gene Campbell. He introduced me to the Beat poets, Allen Ginsberg, as well as writers like [Vladimir] Nabokov, [Walt] Whitman..
The magazine will hit newsstands on February 27 and will be available to order online in the near future. Please watch this space for the link, or alternatively subscribe to their newsletter to learn more about release info when available.
