** According to WordOfGod, "This Is What Makes Us Girls" -- a song about a young woman falling in and out of the wrong side of the track -- is autobiographical.

* TakeThat:
** TakeThatCritics: "Radio" can be interpreted this way, as can more than a few of the songs on ''Ultraviolence''. "I'm a dragon, you're a whore" is one example. This trope might've reached its apex, however, in the video for "High By The Beach", which shows Lana ''blowing up'' a paparazzi helicopter at her beachside estate using a decidedly WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal[[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon -esque assault rifle.]]

* {{Lolicon}}:
** "Put Me In A Movie".
** A few of her various TeacherStudentRomance songs, as well.
** Despite its title, "Lolita" doesn't really touch on matters of age -- but the implications are definitely there if you squint.

Lana Del Rey (born June 21, 1985) is an 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 UsefulNotes/{{Miami}}, and wanting a name she could "shape the music towards". Also, [[AwesomeMcCoolname she just liked the way it sounded]].

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 UsefulNotes/{{Miami}}, and wanting a name she could "shape the music towards". Also, [[AwesomeMcCoolname she just liked the way it sounded]].

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

** In-studio, "National Anthem" is a good example of her making a choir of her own voice behind her. Also, on TheOtherWiki, she is the only credited vocalist on ''Born To Die''.

* BigApplesauce: Several of Lana's songs make local references to NewYorkCity, but "Greenwich" is notable for being named in tribute to Greenwich Village, where Lana used to live at one point.
