Lana Del Rey is no stranger to controversy. We recently learned that Lana slept with "a lot of guys" in order to become famous, and the enigmatic songstress has made no effort to clarify her statement in the week since.

Prior to that Lana wished she was dead in one interview, and encouraged fans not to listen to her music in another. And don't even get us started on her weird dalliances with James Franco.

What we're saying is, Lana's latest album, Ultraviolence, has had one of the weirder promotional campaigns in recent memory.

Still, nothing that Lana has said to the press has incurred as much wrath as the record's title track, the video for which debuted today:

Yes, "Ultraviolence" follows "Shades of Cool" off as the third single off of Lana's already best-selling album. Pay close attention to the lyrics and you may see why women's rights groups are less than pleased with the track.

For a woman who's sold over 8 million records worldwide, Lana Del Rey has managed to remain something of an enigma.

A recent Rolling Stone piece about Lana filled in some of the puzzle pieces (Perhaps that's why she nearly bailed mid-interview.), but there are still plenty of questions remaining.

Is she really dating Francesco Carrozzini? What's going on with Lana and James Franco?

Fortunately, Rolling Stone recently posted a companion piece to their Lana interview, and it manages to solve a few of the more puzzling mysteries surrounding LDR. There's still plenty we don't know, of course, but we kinda prefer it that way. We're sure she does to:

She Loves Her Cigs
Lana is a self-described "chain-smoker." Let's hope her pack-a-day doesn't damage her amazing voice.

Jump into the gallery above to find out Lana's real age (It's not what you think.); what Seinfeld character she identifies with; and, yes, even what classic American flavor makes her think of her own lady bits.

So there's an Instagram user  named Liam who dresses up like young, female celebrities. The 17-year-old goes all out with this pastime, and he nails it.

Posing exactly like Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Kylie and Kendall Jenner and many others while drawing upon them for fashion inspiration, Liam's photos are ...

We don't even know what to say. They speak for themselves:

Kendall and Kylie Jenner
Instagram user Liam, or Waverider as he goes by, dresses up as Kendall and Kylie Jenner in this hilarious photo reenactment.

"I first got the idea to do these type of photos about eight months ago," the teenager told Metro in a recent interview, regarding his viral celeb reenactments.

"I liked the idea that not many guys would do what I do, and it’s something different ... people’s reactions to the photos were great, so I just kept doing them!"

That he did, while paying close attention to every last detail.

Liam says he scours cheap stores for his ensembles, and/or makes them himself at home with his impressive tailoring and crafting skills.

His favorite star to impersonate? She's #11 in this gallery.

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.

To anyone who doubts that James Franco and Lana Del Rey are hooking up, we'd like to present you with exhibits A through E:

Lana and James on Instagram
Lana and James posing for a photo. No doubt they hung out and brooded together afterwards.

The most telling thing about all of these photos isn't the fact that Lana and James seem like they can't keep their hands off one another.

No, the real giveaway is the fact that all of these pics are on Franco's Instagram page...along with another dozen of so shots of Lana.

No, really: he's got pictures of Lana's Rolling Stone cover, a screen grab from one of her music videos, even a gem in which James poses for a selfie in front of giant Lana poster, which we've included in the gallery above for your being-creeped-out pleasure.

So what does it all mean? Well, most likely it's one of two things: 1. James is banging Lana, or 2. James really, really wishes he was banging Lana.

Lana Del Rey appears on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone, and inside the magazine, the outspoken singer opens up about everything from her mental state to her legendarily awful performance on Saturday Night Live.

The interview took place in the Greenwich Village townhouse owned by Lana's boyfriend, Francesco Carrozzini, and to say that she comes off a bit unstable at times, would be putting it mildly. 

At one point, Lana even tries to shy away from the honor of covering the iconic music mag:

"I'm not sure if they should run this story," the "West Coast" songstress tells her interviewer. "I just wish you could write about something else. There has to be someone else to be the cover story. Like there has to be. Anybody."

Lana claimed that she felt she didn't have anything "good" to talk about during the interview. Well, as far as we're concerned, she dropped enough gems for a dozen cover stories:

Given all the excesses available in Hollywood, and all the stressed-out creative types who work there, it's not surprising that we could come up with a list of celebrity smokers.

Some of the individuals who made said list may surprise you, though.

Despite the obvious risks of bad breath, yellow teeth and ... what's that one we forgot ... oh, right, lung cancer, countless celebrities still smoke cigarettes.

Hey, at least they can afford to pay the sin tax on those $10 packs?

If you know who Lindsay Lohan is, chances are you know Lindsay Lohan smokes. Ditto Charlie Sheen. But you'd never think some of these other stars partake.

Take a look at 23 celeb smokers who should probably quit:

Katherine Heigl
Katherine Heigl is smoking hot ... although her smoking habit is so not. She also thinks e-cigarettes are cool, which is almost funny but more sad than anything.

Here's one we probably should've seen coming. Two of the most self-important weirdos in entertainment might be hooking up and all we can do is hope that it doesn't result in some sort of mega-hipster baby that pops out of the womb talking about bands you've never heard of. 

Lana Del Rey has been on a tear since ending her engagement to Barrie-James O'Neill and it looks as though - like so many starlets before her - she may have fallen into the Franco trap.

Lana Del rey and James Franco

It's a known fact that Franco will bang anyone not named Lindsay Lohan, so when we see a photo like the one above, we naturally assume that Lana and James are knockin' boots and discoursing on existentialism together.

On the left is Lana's sister, and we have no way of knowing if she's been able to able to escape Franco's magnetic douchiness, but she's not famous, so James probably literally can't see her.

For those of you struggling to keep up with Lana Del Rey's love life, allow us to be of some assistance:

Lana and Barrie-James O'Neill got engaged in January of 2014. Then, last month, Lana and Barrie-James broke up, possibly because she realized he has a hyphenated first name, and that's awful.

Shortly thereafter Barrie-James claimed he and Lana are still together, so B-J, if you're reading this, we'd like to encourage you to look away now, because Lana has found another uniquely named European dude to be depressed and smoke cigarettes with.

Lana Del Rey and Francesco Carrozzini

Yes, Lana's been spotted cavorting around Italy with Vogue photographer Francesco Carrozzini.

Neither party has confirmed that they're in a relationship, but you don't take a trip to Italy with a photographer named Francesco and keep it platonic.

Earlier this week Lana Del Rey hinted that she'd ended her engagement to Barrie-James O'Neill.

And by hinted, we mean she definitively stated that she and O'Neill are "not together."

But O'Neill apparently sees things differently, as he told TMZ last night that that the relationship between Lana and himself is most certainly "not over."

"Don't believe what you read," O'Neill told a paparazzo. "It's just stories. Bedtime stories."

We're not sure if Barrie-James is endearingly devoted to making his relationship work or terrifyingly stalker-ish in his insistence that he and Lana are still together.

There's just no way to get a read on this guy; he's got a hyphenated first name, for Pete's sake!
