Lana Del Rey Complex Magazine 2012

Singer Lana Del Rey covers Complex magazine. She is best known for her song, "Video Games," which has over 20 million views on YouTube. Her recent SNL performance was criticized. Lana tells Complex, "My real fans know Iím not a showstopper on stage."

Lana also talked with Complex about reading what the critics have to say and the authenticity of her music.

On Reading Reviews: "I'm pretty much switched off from it. What other people have been saying doesn't have anything to do with me because I never gave any long interviews to anyone. Ever. Everything is basically fiction."

On Authenticity: "If you consider the definition of authenticity, it's saying something and actually doing it. I write my own songs. I made my own videos. I pick my producers. Nothing goes out without my permission. It's all authentic."
