Lana was awarded GQ’s “Woman of the Year” Award at last night’s “Men Of The Year” Awards. Read what GQ had to say below,
When GQ.com interviewed Lana Del Rey back in September 2011, she was seen simply an Instagram-tinted internet sensation constructed from hype, found footage and one quickly discarded sundress. One year on andGQ’s Woman Of The Year is a true pop star in her own right. Having provoked equal amounts of debate and outrage throughout an incredible year, she fufills one of the key requirements for any good pop star: she gets talked about. Following the all-conquering “Video Games” and her number one debut album Born To Die, Del Rey signed to NEXT models, wrote the best song on Cheryl Cole’slast album, teamed up with ASAP Rocky and has acted as a muse and model to Mulberry, Jaguar and H&M. Truly 2013 is hers for the taking.
