Lana Del Rey facts:

Lana Del Rey's real name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant and she was born on June 21, 1985 in the State of New York. She attended Fordham University in New York, where she graduated with a degree in metaphysics and philosophy.
At the beginning of her career she was known as Lizzy Grant. Lana Del Rey used to have a number of different artist names, including Sparkle Jump Rope Queen and May Jailer. She finally chose Lana Del Rey during a trip to Miami. In an interview she said, "I wanted a name that sounded sort of exotic and reminded me of like the seaside on the Floridian coast.” Lana Del Rey has also contributed to a variety of film scores including "The Great Gatsby" (2013), "Maleficent" (2014) and "Big Eyes" (2014).
At the age of 17, the singer began giving her first gigs in small clubs in New York City. She even recorded her first album "Sirens" under the pseudonym May Jailer. In 2010 she released the album "Lana Del Ray a.k.a Lizzy Grant" as Lizzy Grant. The young singer then went on tour with the Swedish rock band Mando Diao and helped record their MTV unplugged album "Above and Beyond" from 2010. With the advance of her first album Deal she bought a trailer in a trailer park in New Jersey and lived there after graduating from university.
A year later her first song "Video Games" was released, which became a viral hit on YouTube with over a million clicks in a month. The album "Born to Die", on which her successful song appeared, was released in 2012 and again reached the top of the charts in numerous countries, including Germany and the UK, and second place in the USA. The second release "Summertime Sadness" received a lot of media attention, but could not continue the success of its predecessor. In the UK and the USA the single "National Anthem" was released instead of "Summertime Sadness". At the end of 2012 the album was re-released under the name "Born to Die - The Paradise Edition". The song "Young & Beautiful", which was used for the movie "The Great Gatsby", was almost as successful in the USA as Lana’s debut "Video Games".
2013 saw the release of the new studio album "Ultraviolence", preceded by the short film "Tropico". For the songs "I Can Fly" and "Big Eyes", which were used for the movie "Big Eyes", Lana Del Rey received a nomination at the Golden Globe Awards 2015.
The fourth studio album followed quickly. In 2015 the album "Honeymoon" followed the two previously released songs "Honeymoon" and "High by the Beach", which are stylistically similar to Lana Del Rey’s first album.
Together with The Weeknd, Lana Del Rey produced the single "Lust for Life" in 2017, which is the second release of her fifth album of the same name.
For her latest album "Norman Fucking Rockwell", the American pop icon has already announced a major European tour for 2020.
