Lana Del Rey: “I Wish I Was Dead”

Published: Saturday 14th Jun 2014 by David


“I wish I was dead already.”

The above, believe it or not, are words uttered by ‘Born To Die’ belle Lana Del Rey, revealing-much to the surprise of her fans- that she no longer wants to live in the world as she knows it.

Her upsetting remarks below…

An excerpt from her recent interview with  ‘The Guardian‘ reads:

“I wish I was dead already,” Lana Del Rey says, catching me off guard. She has been talking about the heroes she and her boyfriend share – Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain among them – when I point out that what links them is death and ask if she sees an early death as glamorous. “I don’t know. Ummm, yeah.” And then the death wish.

Don’t say that, I say instinctively.

“But I do.”

You don’t!

“I do! I don’t want to have to keep doing this. But I am.”

Do what? Make music?

“Everything. That’s just how I feel. If it wasn’t that way, then I wouldn’t say it. I would be scared if I knew [death] was coming, but …”

What do you make of the singer’s strange comments?

        Don’t we all?


    Oh god, Lana Noooo!
    Btw, isn’t TGJ late on this?

  4. LovebirdTGJ June 14, 2014

    Get her some help, ASAP.

  5. CherylSoldierr June 14, 2014

    Maybe it’s because she looked at west coast’s sales.

    • Meena June 14, 2014

      A Cheryl Stan talking about sales LOL

      • CherylSoldierr June 14, 2014

        250k in the uk first week vs 150k ww 8 weeks later? Absolute death.

    • Rosie June 14, 2014

      Dead at you literally making up stats. It probably sold 150K worldwide first week.
      But anyways, your pressed ass stays perched in every Lana post. Yet you try and drag us when we come for Chav? Worry about getting Chav’s album to chart outside of the UK.

      • CherylSoldierr June 14, 2014

        West coast has done ~150k total, nice try. And babe it has. We’ve gone the through this. Focus on getting your girl the rehab that we’ve all been recommending. She’s giving me 20s drug addict prohibition era tease.

      • Rosie June 15, 2014

        And where are the receipts for this? It did 117K in the US alone first week. The US sales are likely around that (because Interscope ruined it by removing the song off iTunes) and that combined with the UK sales definitely pushes it above 150K.
        But why are you coming for her single sales though? We already know Lana is an albums artist; look at Ultraviolence already being predicted to do 175K with no hit single. Once again go worry about getting Chav’s next to chart outside of the UK since it’s the only country where A Million Lights even went top 50.

  6. truth June 14, 2014

    Publicity stunt for her new album.

  7. GaGa’s Tampon June 14, 2014

    Oh my holy Aunt!!
    This girl needs help
    Hate to see such good talent go to waste
    They can Take Katy Perry instead

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 14, 2014

      Your gravatar tho… Lmao

    • DEL BEY June 14, 2014

      DEAD at your avi

    • iXtina June 15, 2014

      Lmao what is with your gravatar?! So not right lol

  8. HOTSTUFF June 14, 2014

    i want to think that its for publicity but yet we’re always fast to think so and not actually realize when an artist is crying out for help ! Ultraviolence is such a dark masterpiece….but now i think i’m understanding where this dark perfection is coming from…seems that shes in a dark place in her life at the moment…i hope she gets well, shes one of the most talented writers of this generation and shes literally created a new sound , her sound…Long Live Queen LANA!

  9. Unbiased June 14, 2014

    I hate when people complain about achieving their dreams. Like shut up, their are so many people wishing they could have to amount of success she has, or be as talented as her. But, I do hope she is okay and get the helps she needs. Some tumblr users see death as something beautiful, and they try to be cool by glamorizing it. Death is nothing to joke or play about.

  10. NICKI IS QUEEN June 14, 2014

    Sombody get her some help

  11. Dustin June 14, 2014

    I can’t with these statements. She is such a phony. Not to mentio a complete moron. How dare ou, someone who’s lived a life of privilege glamorize death to an audience of people that most likely don’t live a life anywhere near as priveged as yours. I don’t usually let an isolated comment predicate my opinion about someone as a whole but now, she can go to me.

  12. Yea ok June 14, 2014

    I find this very refreshing. It sounds to me like she has given it quite a bit of thought and let’s be honest here. Everyone is going to die one day. Including you. Deciding when and how I find to be very liberating. Plus the soul never dies. U just enter a different realm. I don’t find that to be scary at all. Some people all they can see is here in front of them. With that being said I don’t listen to her music or anything but I’m not gonna scream for her to get help either. She is grown. She can do what she wants.

    • TDM90 June 14, 2014

      so true, same tought here.

  13. Left Lane June 14, 2014

    Mk Ultra programming maybe?

  14. Yazmine June 14, 2014

    Publicity stunt much?

  15. Austin Dumas June 14, 2014

    awww so sad,well it’s said that life is hard and death is beautiful, digger bey do you feel the same way?

  16. PRINCE MACHIAVEL June 14, 2014

    And Then Some Idiots Here Said “Rich People Don’t Suffert From Drepression” Like Then Aren’t Human, What A Bunch Of Mean B******!

    I Hope Goddess Del Rey Will Get Better Cause I F****** Love Her! ULTRAVIOLENCE Is Simply Orgasmatic But I Do Prefer The Unreleased Version of “Black Beauty” Than The One Fron ULTRAVIOLENCE Album!!!

    • Teacher June 14, 2014

      Biiiiiitch!!!! We couldn’t stand each other..but where have you been?

  17. Dustin June 14, 2014

    All these people saying she needs help. This isn’t a cry for help it’s a cry for attention. I don’t care if that is her philosophy, keep that s*** to yourself. Romanticising death to a young audience is not only irresponsible, it’s reprehensible. She’s always been a level 10 moron in my mind but this just took it to another level.

    • Rosie June 14, 2014

      Not as desperate at this post. How is this interview romanticizing death? You obviously don’t know much about the actual disease called depression. Try harder.

      • OMG Logic! June 15, 2014

        You should look into delusion. It doesn’t look cute.

      • Rosie June 15, 2014

        You obviously know nothing either looking at the comment you left below. Just because she tee up with money and is successful she can’t be sad at times? You’re the one sounding stupid. Once again people who think like you are the reason mental health doesn’t get as much attention as it needs to.

      • Dustin June 16, 2014

        Rosie, please feel free to eat s***. Don’t presume you can tell me anything about clinical depression. We don’t know each other and you don’t personally know Lana so you have no reason to be so defensive. My comment wasn’t even slightly off base. Everything about the image she has cultivated glamorizes the live fast, die young philosophy. And yeah, I’d say that romanticizes death. If she were really concerned about her own mental state she wouldn’t be making frivolous and flippant comments to an international publication. She wild be talking to a therapist or seeking council.

        Try harder.

  18. Suicide Blonde June 14, 2014

    I been there too, at 16 and then at 24 and so on, sometimes you wonder why all the pain, when you have everything in your life, the thing is that there is cure to the pain but how do you get better when you don’t know what makes you feel that way, that’s the problem, when you don’t know why you are unhappy, hope she gets better, wish all the best to her and everyone who is dealing with depression.

  19. The truth hurts June 14, 2014

    Do not worry about lana. This interview was done ages ago. In a more recent one with the sun lana said she is happy and really excited for the new record.

  20. The truth hurts June 14, 2014

    Next weeks album chart is going to be really interesting! It’s going to be a close call between Sam and Lana. Although Lana’s predictions are higher she has no promo lined up for next week in the US whereas Sam backed by Capitol will be doing tonnes along with having some decent radio support so I could see him just edging out lana but I hope to god lana does get the #1 cause she really deserves it.

  21. The truth hurts June 14, 2014

    Lana radio interviews are always so much better because she seems so happy in them!

  22. IStanForYourFav June 14, 2014

    Hmmm no comment from me. I rather just see how this plays out. I will say tho, I still question why people want to be famous. Does the fact that Whitney, Mariah, Aretha, Janet, Katy, Rihanna, B, Patti, Chris Brown, Jay-Z, Drake, Amy Winehouse, Nicki Minaj, BRITNEY, MICHAEL, and more tell you that you have to have true strength and that they have some type of remorse for becoming famous not stick in your brain? All I will say is #FixItJesus

  23. #Tinashe Stan June 14, 2014

    Strategic Marketing. That’s what she’s doing.

  24. andrew June 14, 2014

    noone dead and got back. This ugly ignorant is talking about death like wearing clothes… most of us are afraid fromdeath as being the end of life, but no one asks what’scoming after it…because we all know that this is really scary. the end without comingback. the tomb is closing on you…

  25. FutureCIARA June 14, 2014

    The death cycle all over.

  26. Stephon June 14, 2014

    Po’Thang! I knew she was off in the head. #Prays-For-Lana

  27. Rosie June 14, 2014

    Mess at the ignorant f*** thinking its a cry for attention. Obviously none of you take depression seriously and that why mental health doesn’t get as much attention as it needs.
    But yeah, TGJ is late with this and she said in another recent interview much later (this one was written while she was on your a few months ago) that she’s happy now. If she is depressed I hope she seeks help though.

  28. DEL BEY June 14, 2014

    Ahh Lana baby! I completely understand where she is coming from in a way, sometimes I feel life I’m general is too hard and I’d rather not bother, but some people are more pesemistic than others, it’s really is the glass half full or half empty thing, and I know certain shady h*** on this site will use this to call her depressing etc etc, but they’re shallow and ignorant. Get ready, only a few days left..

  29. OMG Logic! June 15, 2014

    What a pretentious bitxch. She’s daddy’s girl who’s known nothing but the lap of luxury and she thinks she has it bad? She’s almost as annoying as the k*** Gwyneth Paltrow with her brain dead advice column.

  30. Matt_Phoenixx △ June 15, 2014

    Hahahahah well..

  31. JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse slayed) June 15, 2014

    Well, didn´t we all know this about her already? I mean, look at her songs from the beginning. Her lyrics are even becoming repetitive now because she is obsessed with the thought. The new album is good, don´t get me wrong, but she needed a little bit more of evolution to make me like it more. I love Born to Die when it was released and played almost everyday for months. But I knew she was not going to be able to expand her horizons. It is a bit repetitive already, but by the time she releases her 3rd album it will be just old.

    • Suicide Blonde June 15, 2014


      What do you mean with ‘expand your horizons’, ‘Ultraviolence’ is vastly different from ‘Born to Die’, the production on the album is influenced by guitars, you can feel the Rock atmosphere in opposite to the Alternative Indie vibes of ‘Born to Die’, that’s an evolution, what do you want her to do, a Pop record, hell no!, she’s not a Pop artist, she has grown so much and this album is a proof of that, even her lyrics are different, it might be boring to you but it’s a masterpiece to me, it’s not appealing to the masses and everyone’s ears, thing that i find interesting, she challenged the public with this new album, what she is trying to do is divide her hardcore fans and the casual listeners who liked ‘Born to Die’, those who will abandon her once they don’t like the follow up, and that’s fine, we don’t need bandwagoners, this is Lana, this is her sound, she is original, she is not even trying to be a mainstream act, the only reason why people got interested in her was because she somehow became popular, she enter the mainstream world with an unusual music, with this record, hopefully the casual listeners will go back to listen to their mediocre Pop and R&B songs, they are not worthy of listen to such a good music, i’m so proud of the way she is handling her career, both commercial and musically. Ultraviolence is and will probably remain the best female record of 2014.

      • Rosie June 15, 2014

        Yess drag it. No lies detected.

  32. peace July 20, 2015

    Lana said she wants to die. Well, the fact that she said she wants to die, shows she’s giving up and she can’t fight or stand her ground. She has a wonderful talent, whatever situation she’s facing she needs not to give up. but since recently she said she’s happy, thank God for her. But let’s just pray for her. I don’t want such a talent to go to waste. Death is never the answer it’s just a way of running away from ur troubles. U got to fight ur inner demons. And ask God to help you.
