    Lana Del Rey thinks fame is “dangerous”

    The ‘Video Games’ hitmaker believes she’s been made a target for “vultures” because of her image, whereas other stars are portrayed more positively even though she claims they are the “biggest b****es”

    She told MOJO magazine: “Sometimes I feel, with fame, it can put you on the peripheries, where the vultures can pick at you. It’s dangerous on the edges.

    “It’s not that I aspire to be the girl next door, but it’s just that I actually was and I think what some people don’t understand is that the girl next door has things going on too.

    “A lot of these other people who I see portraying that image are not that way at all – they’re like the biggest b****es who live in insane mansions and rip people off.

    “This is not bitterness speaking at all. It’s literally just kind of just the facts, ma’am.”

    And Lana feels she has been “discredited” for years.

    She added: “A lot of the things I was writing about, people shamed me for. But I like to think now I was actually writing about what thousands of housewives were experiencing and no one ever said a thing from Brentwood to Boca Raton.

    “I just dyed my hair black and talked about it and I got a lot of s*** for it.

    “It takes a more dignified-looking person with a better reputation to call out the world or the President or some guy who runs a restaurant.

    “I’m going to be the person who corroborates the story, the blonde at the end of the bar… The reason why I can’t be a person who starts certain movements is because of what people have written that isn’t true.

    “And that’s too bad – because I know a lot.

    “I was discredited for seven years. There’s no other way of looking at it.”
