Sounds Like It's High Time to Worry About Lana Del Rey

So hey, don't freak out or anything, but Lana Del Rey did this new interview where she said some pretty sad, pretty scary things. Things like "I wish I was dead already." And she really didn't sound like she was joking. So let's all unite and send her some good feelings, all right? And let's also delve a little deeper into this.
This little train of thought began when Lana mentioned that some of her heroes are Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse. The interviewer mentioned that both of those artists died young, and he asked her if she thought that was glamorous, and she said "I don't know. Ummm, yeah." And after that, she made that "I wish I was dead already" statement. She also said that "I don't want to have to keep doing this. But I am," and when she was asked what she was referring to, she said this:
"Everything. That's just how I feel. If it wasn't that way, then I wouldn't say it. I would be scared if I knew [death] was coming, but …"
She also said this:
"Family members will come on the road with me and say: 'Wow, your life is just like a movie!' And I'm like: 'Yeah, a really f---ed up movie.'"
And when she was asked about enjoying the huge success of her first single, "Video Games," she said this:
"I never felt any of the enjoyment. It was all bad, all of it."
That doesn't sound all that great, does it? It's actually pretty intensely concerning. So those good feelings, yeah? Let's get on those right away.
