Lana Del Rey graces the cover of the debut issue of L'Officiel USA magazine, answering questions in the cover-story from the likes of Stevie Nicks, Grimes, and Marina Diamandis.
Stevie Nicks: Dear Lana, are we planning on spending the summer in our fantastic apartments in the Hollywood sign?
LDR: Stevie! Sweet angel! Yes don’t worry I’ve already began planning the summer but I was thinking we could spend half of our time on that boat we were talking (maybe shoot a video for "Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems.") I was thinking we could kick it off on the Summer Solstice — what do you think?
Grimes: What do you think about artificial intelligence? Do you think it will be good or bad for humanity?
LDR: I think it’s just a natural progression of where technology has been leading to up until now. I think the advancements of AI will be benefits. I don’t think it will get to the point where we are boycotting the robot community because they’ve taken all of our jobs. That said, I did hear that Amazon’s just become the first company to deliver via drone, which I’m very excited but also nervous about, because I’ve had such bad experiences with drones. So, don’t take my word for it.
Marina Diamandis: To what extent do you think our personalities are shaped by the way we look?
LDR: Up until this point in our culture, I think half. Hopefully, from this point onward, it can be less. It’s kind of like that nature-versus-nurture question. I think it’s similar in the way that you’re just living with yourself all the time. But obviously, when you have a strong personality, you can surpass any first judgment people may have on you.
