Lana Del Rey: I Slept With A LOT of Guys to Get Famous!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

These days, Lana Del Rey is all over James Franco, but according to a recent interview with Complex magazine, when she was a struggling, unknown singer in her early 20s, Lana was all over, well...everybody.

"I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry, but none of them helped me to get my record deals," says Lana. "Which is annoying."

Wait, what?! Did she really just admit to trying and failing to exchange sex for recording contracts? 

The matter came up as a result of a track off Lana's new album entitled "F--ked My Way to the Top," which is about exactly what you'd expect.  

LDR has a history of making surprising remarks during when talking with the press (she recently told Rolling Stone to find a different cover girl mid-interview), but we're thinking she may regret revealing that F--ked is based on real-life experiences.

It's not just the fact that Lana admits to using sex to boost her career that's likely to cost her some feminist fans, it's the way she talks about it without an ounce of regret. 

When Lana says it's "annoying" that she wasn't able to bang her way into the recording studio, one gets the impression she'd do it all again if she thought it would pay off.

The latest rumors have Lana dating Francesco Carrozzini at the moment.

He's a respected Vogue photographer, but isn't known to have any major connections in the music industry. We hope for his sake that Lana is happy with the state of her career.

This should not come as a surprise to anyone. Most women "sleep" (what a stupid word to describe what these women are doing) with a lot of guys to get ahead. I don't necessarily have a problem with what these women are doing as men also sleep around (but not to get ahead). The problem I have is with the tarts that have 100000 miles on the odometer and are all used out but still want to pretend that they are something special.

When I first read this my knee jerk reaction was negative, however upon reflection I have to admit I admire her honesty, for the great unwashed out there who believe fame comes without 'a price', sorry kiddies no one gets anywhere in 'the industry' unless they sleep with at least a few guys & that goes for the males also. "Dont get to play if you dont pay".

I think that at her age she should probably shut up; she's her own worst enemy. Clearly now that she has gained some fame she is not comfortable with it -- just step away Lana.

I respect that she's actually honest about it. And any of her fans this costs her are ignorant as to how the world works.
