In case you haven't heard Lana Del Rey tried to sleep her way to the top and failed.
No, really. That's what Lana said in a recent interview with Complex magazine. She banged dudes in the music industry in hopes of landing a record deal.
When that didn't work, she was shamefully forced to resort to talent and hard work to boost her career. It's the saddest of tales.
But where Lana failed, many others have succeeded.
In fact, for every obvious example of a starlet who sexed her way to the A-list (looking at you Kim Kardashian), there are probably a dozen less apparent cases of aspiring actresses, models, and pop stars who got to the top by getting on top.
