Lana Del Rey has less of a “persona to live through” now, apparently

"I think it comes down to getting a little older."
Lana Del Rey has explained how she feels she no longer needs “to create a persona to live through”.

Speaking to Elle, Lana explained: “I know that if I had more of a persona [before], I have less of one now. And I think it comes down to getting a little older.”

“Maybe I needed a stronger look or something to lean on then,” she continued. “But I feel like it wouldn’t be hard for me today to play a mega show in jeans without rehearsing and still feel like I was coming from the right place.”

She also spoke about how her new record ‘Lust For Life’ is more political than her previous material. “I think it would be weird to be making a record during the past 18 months and not comment on how [the political landscape] was making me or the people I know feel, which is not good. It would be really difficult if my views didn’t line up with what a lot of what people are saying.”
