Lana Del Rey doesn't want you listening to her songs

That's right, stop buying her music already! Lana's music is hers, and hers alone

Piracy isn't Lana Del Rey's singer-songwriter problem. The Born to Die singer said that she doesn't want people to hear her lyrics (huh?).

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Lana was asked about the controversial lyrics from her single, Ultraviolence (he hit me and it felt like a kiss... he hurt me and it felt like true love), which naturally drew questions from her audience. She said "I don't want them to hear it and think about it. It's none of their business!"

"I just don't want them to hear it at all," Lana said. "I'm very selfish. I make everything for me, kind of. I mean, every little thing, down to the guitar and the drums. It's just for me."

To clear the air, Lana is not going crazy. "Well, I feel fucking crazy. But I don't think I am. People make me feel crazy," she said, referring to how she famously declared "I wish I were dead" during an interview with The Guardian.

It's a little goth, a little emo, a little hipster, and just a little too much for us to understand the puzzling character that is Lana Del Rey. For those of you unwilling to heed Lana's request, here's Ultraviolence to keep you mystified.
