Lana Del Rey (born June 21, 1985) is a [[LoveItOrHateIt highly divisive]] American IndiePop singer and model. Originally recording under her real name, Lizzy Grant, to little success, she later created her current [[PenName Lana Del Rey persona]] after being inspired by her frequent visits to {{Miami}}, and wanting a name she could "shape the music towards". Also, [[AwesomeMcCoolname she just liked the way it sounded]].

After settling on her new name, Lana posted a few songs (with accompanying, DIY music videos [[EveryoneOwnsAMac made on her Mac]]) to Website/YouTube. One song in particular, "Video Games", caught the attention of many music blogs and critics alike. To capitalize on the sudden interest of the track, Lana released "Video Games" (with a [[BSide b-side]], "Blue Jeans") as a single on Stranger Records in October 2011, and it became a SleeperHit all across Europe. Not long afterwards, Lana was signed to Interscope Records, and her (major label) debut ''Music/BornToDie'' was released worldwide in January 2012. For a relative unknown like Lana, it actually sold pretty well in its first week; she even managed to knock {{Adele}}'s ''21'' off the top spot [[SerialEscalation in many countries, including the UK,]] and eventually went platinum. Defines her music as Sadcore pop. Opened the door for Lorde to do her good work.

Essentially, Del Rey made the error of cultivating an "[[{{Hipster}} indie]]" audience before branching into pop, a fate which has befallen singers such as LizPhair and many others.

Lana is known for her very constructed persona, the character of Lana Del Rey whom she plays in the public eye and explores through her music. She incorporates into her performance a number of influences ranging from dreamily sad hipster aesthetics and romantic hip hop in ''Born
to come.
Die'' to seventies sex appeal in ''Ultraviolence'' and old Hollywood glamour in ''High by the Beach''. The common strains running through her music are themes of deep sadness and melancholy, ennui, disenchantment and romanticised self-destructiveness or depression. She is also known for paying homage to icons in order to associate herself with their brands of mystique or to set moods, including Marilyn Monroe, Lolita, Elvis and Billie Holiday.
