On December 4, Lana Del Rey attended Variety’s 5th Annual Hitmakers Brunch, presented by Peacock and Girls5eva, held at City Market Social House in Los Angeles. Her received the Decade Award which was presented by her ‘Wildflower Wildfire’ collaborator Mike Dean. In attendance were also Lana’s managers, Ben Mawson and Ed Millett. Not to mention, Lana was photographed with Avril Lavigne.
International Business Times wrote up the highlights of Lana’s speech.
In her acceptance speech, the “Summertime Sadness” hitmaker said she was grateful for not only the acknowledgment of her work but also “all the criticism,” admitting, “I get a lot.”
“What’s good about it is I really believe what’s reflected back to you is in some way a mirror to what’s going on in your inner life,” she said. “It’s given me a huge opportunity to look inward and to look at my family of origin and look at my lineage, see what’s going on up there.”
Del Rey also paid sweet tribute to her grandmother, saying, “Any of the lightness and funniness and goodness in me I pretty much specifically got from her.”
Furthermore, she stressed how one’s passion could lead to excellence. Del Rey said that she has been lucky to have followed her “muse” for 18 years, which she said has taken her away from music at times and into “other mediums and other job opportunities that have nothing to do with the arts at all.”
“I’m very flexible and what I’ve come to understand is that if you follow what you’re interested in, you’ll end up being the most creative in that field,” she added.
Del Rey went on to give the audience a piece of advice, which was to “do what feels right” no matter what one’s job is. “I always like to say that the way I live my life is my poetry, my lovemaking is my legacy, and I get to make music in between,” she continued.
She also gave a special shoutout to her managers Ben Mawson and Ed Millett, who have been with her throughout her journey as an artist.
“I’m super grateful for them, Ben and Ed, and for this award. I’m really glad that they’re here with me. They picked me out of the bar scenes, lounge singer scenes that I was singing in for about eight years before I met them,” Del Rey said.

Lana Del Rey posted a video to her Instagram account revealing that she will be deactivating her social media accounts tomorrow. She said this is because she has “so many other interests and other jobs I’m doing that require privacy and transparency.”
Lana thanked her fans for all of our support and hopes we will like her new album, ‘Blue Banisters’. She said her new record is a complication of older and newer songs some written by family, friends, and old collaborators. “There will always be more to come.”
She added that she will always still be very present and is of course working on more records, her spoken word album, and her poetry books. “I’m still very present and love what I do and I’m absolutely here for the music.”
“Thank you for seeing me through the music. It’s always important to be witnessed.” Lana said she’s going to keep her circle a little closer and develop some other skill and interests.
“I’m always here making lots of records and in the meantime living life. I’ve really enjoyed sharing all these very small titbits with you and I’m really blessed so thank you. Signing off…”
It’s unclear whether this decision is permanent or temporary. Watch Lana’s full video below:
