In a recent interview with Britain’s Rolling Stone magazine, Lana Del Rey said that, of her 13-year career, she spent at least 10 of them anguished and discouraged because of criticism of her work, which led to mental health problems.
The American singer is about to release her ninth album, called Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd and, after listening to the album, the publication stated that Lana is the greatest songwriter of the 21st century, among male and female artists.
Thinking about it, the TMDQA! decided to remember great moments in Lana Del Rey’s career that show that, if the artist felt bad before, imagine what she can produce now, that she is safer and freer. Check the list below!

The presentation had everything: hits, Lana moved by the size of the audience, I kissed a fan and the whole audience sang the anthem in chorus “Summertime Sadness” to close the night with a golden key. The good thing is that this year there’s MITA Festival again!
