Lana Del Rey Scores Fastest Selling LP Of 2012 So Far
The Video Games singer currently has the biggest album of the year...
After learning of her chart success, Del Rey thanked her fans on Twitter, posting via her official account: "Thank you for making the record #1 in 11 countries. Your sweet words have softened the effect of even the harshest reviews. I adore you."
Despite landing her first No.1 record, the Video Games hitmaker has claimed that Born To Die may be her last album, telling Vogue magazine: "I don't think I'll write another record. What would I say? I feel like everything I wanted to say, I've said already."
She also revealed that her music is 'inspired by heartbreak', explaining to the publication: "Even though I can't be with that person anymore, I still want to honour those memories.
"I felt like falling in love changed me, neurologically and the record is about being faithful in my mind to the memory of that particular person. I'm in contact with his mother. He's somewhere else but he's around.
"The album is a tribute to living life on the wild side. I'm sort of kidding because I'm not that wild any more ... I used to drink a lot. Too much. I haven't had a drink for seven years now."
