Lana Del Rey turns on journalist after 'I wish I was dead already' quote

Lana Del Rey launched an attack on a Guardian writer after apparently being misled in an interview.

The singer recently sat down with the newspaper's Tim Jonze to promote her new album 'Ultraviolence'.

However, some quotes which come from the interview - such as 'I wish I was dead already' - turned some heads.

Del Rey took to Twitter to respond to the quotes - appearing to mix up Jonze with the Guardian's 'Ultraviolence' album reviewer Alexis Petridis - before deleting her tweets.

She said: "I regret trusting the Guardian - I didn't want to do an interview but the journalist was persistent. Alexis was masked as a fan but was hiding sinister ambitions and angles. Maybe he's actually the boring one looking for something interesting to write about. His leading questions about death and persona were calculated."

This prompted Jonze to respond on Twitter, saying: "I did an interview with @LanaDelRey. She was great: honest & open. Now she's making out I twisted her words when actually I clarified with her everything she said. So either she lied to me or she's lying to her fans now."

He later said: "Surprise! @LanaDelRey deleted her tweets about the interview. I liked her, but confused why she made out her own words were twisted."

Jonze has since added an audio clip of the interview quote in question, which can be heard below.
