    Lana Del Rey Tells Complex She Has 'Slept With A Lot Of Guys In The Industry'

    Lana Del Rey sat down with Complex magazine to talk about her new album, "Ultraviolence," artistic inspiration, guilty pleasures and criticism.

    Also in the magazine's August/September issue, Del Rey talks relationships and men. When addressing her fairly self explanatory track "F-cked My Way Up to The Top," Del Rey says:

    It's commentary, like, 'I know what you think of me,' and I'm alluding to that. You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry, but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying.

    What annoys Del Rey exactly is unclear. Is she annoyed that these men did not get her record deals in exchange for her intimacy? Is she annoyed that people think sex is how she got ahead in the industry, though none of her lovers gave her any breaks?
    Elsewhere in the interview, she attempts to explain how she perceives the relationship between violence and love. "I like a physical love. I like a hands-on love," she says, before pausing: "How can I say this without getting into too much trouble? I like a tangible, passionate love. For me, if it isn't physical, I'm not interested."

    These aren't the first controversial comments Del Rey, 29, has made since the release of "Ultraviolence" last month.

    In an interview with The Guardian, Del Rey said "I wish I were dead already." To The New York Times a few days later, she said she's "scared to die, but I want to die." After her quotes spread like wildfire, Del Rey expressed her regret, tweeting that The Guardian's reporter's "leading questions about death and persona were calculated" and his ambitions, "sinister."

    Lana Del Rey 'Blue Jeans': Singer Premieres New Music Video

    Lana Del Rey has released her new music video for "Blue Jeans," the third single off her first major-label album "Born to Die," which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.

    Wearing only a white vintage-looking bathing suit, Del Rey unleashes her sensual side in the monochromatic video, directed by Yoann Lemoine, who also directed her video for "Born to Die."

    In "Blue Jeans," Del Rey is seen going in and out of a swimming pool, while wrapped in the arms of a tattooed man, played by model Bradley Soileau, who also starred in Del Rey's "Born to Die" video. However, the singer's tattooed model isn't the only one joining her for a swim. Halfway through the video, two alligators are seen swimming past the couple underwater.

    Del Rey also self-released a video for "Blue Jeans" in 2011. In the first video, Del Rey gathered old video clips online, including footage from Australian photographer Nirrimi Joy Firebrace's "tender hearted" project, and filmed herself in front of her webcam.
