What does Lana Del Rey have in common with Angelina Jolie? Perhaps not much yet, but according to the singer, she wants to be just like Jolie. Lana says that although she has been accused of being fabricated, she is so passionate about her work and now that she has achieved success she wants to use it to do good by giving back. She wishes to following in the footsteps of Angelina by giving back to charity in the future:

“Music was my passion, but my work with this foundation is more important. I myself had the chance to be [helped by an establishment]. Helping others now feels like it’s my turn to give something back. I want to become a sort of Angelina Jolie. Like her, I think fame is nothing in itself, but it can be put to good use – by using it to generate money for charity for example.”

Speaking on her difficulties with giving up drinking, Lana says that at first it was hard because she felt as though she lost her life:

“When you no longer drink, it is more difficult to celebrate. In fact, when I quit drinking, I lost my life. It took my all to reinvent myself. Find the roots. It was very difficult. At the same time, I had never felt rooted in whatever I’ve done or wherever I’ve been since.”

Speaking on feeling weird since she was a child, Lana comments:

“As a child, I felt different. I always wanted to make my life a work of art.”
