Lana Del Rey hoped fame would bring her friends

Pillow-lipped starlet Lana Del Rey has admitted that part of her decision to become a singer was inspired by her admiration of the "high-class scene of musicians". 

Speaking exclusively to the NME, the talented songstress explained her lack of personal friends fuelled her ambition to become popular in the music industry in the hope that a community would then form around her:

"I wanted to be part of a high-class scene of musicians. It was half inspired because I didn't have many friends, and I was hoping that I would meet people and fall in love and start a community around me, the way they used to do in the 60s. I wanted to be seen as a good singer, and not much more than that."

"I did find it hard to make friends, but it wasn't because of the people, but because I was sort of a cerebral person, an over-thinker. I was trying to figure out a vision for my future that would make me happy."
