Lana Del Rey: Kurt Cobain is my muse
The husky-throated singer, with a style that harks back to the great soul singers of the early 20th century, told Sirius FM that when she was growing up she admired Cobain for sticking to his values when it came to producing music.
She was 11 when she first saw Nirvana's frontman on MTV. He was singing Heart Shaped Box.
"It really stopped me dead in my tracks. I thought he was the most beautiful person I had ever seen. Even at a really young age, I related to his sadness," she told the radio station."
"I never revisited his music again until I was about 17 or 18, and then when I did, it still meant just as much to me then. It's continued to be my primary inspiration – in terms of not wanting to compromise lyrically or sonically."
The Video Games singer is known for opening her heart in her songs and being utterly candid.
In Video Games for example, she unabashedly declares her love for an alpha male.
Her next song Born to Die is out next year.Posted on 9 Dec 2011 16:29 to category : Band / Celebrity News
