In an interview with GQ magazine Lana Del Rey opened up about her life and said that she was drinking at the age of 14.
In the interview she reviled:
“I was a big drinker at the time. I would drink every day,” she said. “I would drink alone. I thought the whole concept was so f**king cool. A great deal of what I wrote on Born To Die is about these wilderness years.
“My parents were worried, I was worried. I knew it was a problem when I liked it more than I liked doing anything else. I was like, ‘I’m f**ked. I am totally f**ked’.”
“At first it’s fine and you think you have a dark side,” she said. “It’s exciting – and then you realise the dark side wins every time if you decide to indulge in it.
“It’s also a completely different way of living when you know that. [You're] a different species of person. It was the worst thing that ever happened to me.”
