Lana Del Rey Going on Hiatus
Say it ain’t so! Lana Del Rey has announced she’s leaving music … for now, at least — and it’s giving us some real ‘Summertime Sadness.’
In a statement (via Contact Music) released on Thursday (Aug. 22), Del Rey explained that her touring schedule wasn’t good for her writing and creativity right now.
“I don’t think (my current career’s) been conducive to writing, being on the road and all that,” the ‘Young & Beautiful’ singer said. “I don’t really feel inspired to write at all, but beforehand, when I was in Brooklyn for nine years… I was kind of a night owl and just walked around and met weird people. That was me picking up life experiences and meshing them into my own. That really did it for me.”
As for her live commitments, don’t expect any more road gigs any time soon. “Actually, Lollapalooza is my last live commitment,” she admitted. “It’s too bad ’cause it’s been such a long time since the last record. I really feel like I need six months to live again, time to be, like, normal or abnormal. I don’t have anyone writing anything for me. It’s such an internal well and if it’s not full …”
Aw, we’ll miss you Lana! Now go get inspired so you can hurry back to us.
