She credited them for picking her ‘out of the bar scenes, lounge singer scenes that I was singing in for about eight years before I met them.’ 

Lana continued: ‘They got me out of a deal I made for 11 records for nine grand while I was working at a restaurant and living in a trailer park.

‘Ben did that in one hour and then the next day he flew me to London and let me live with him. In a year, I wrote Video Games, and I was ready to make good records, I was ready to make a lot of records.’

Speaking directly to Variety, the Born To Die singer playfully thanked the outlet for their honest criticism of her and her work over the years.

‘I’m really always grateful for any acknowledgement and also super grateful for all the criticism — I get a lot,’ she quipped.

‘What’s good about it is I really believe what’s reflected back to you is in some way a mirror to what’s going on in your inner life. It’s given me a huge opportunity to look inward and to look at my family of origin and look at my lineage, see what’s going on up there.’
