In today's post, I wanted to head back to 2015 and do a a few facts on one of my favourite icons and here is Lana. I also thought it would be really interesting to find out a little bit about Lana after I had been loving her music for a number of years now!
Lana's real name is Lizzy Grant, she moved to New York at the age of 18.
Whilst studying at Fordham University that is when she became interested in music.
Lana was born in Lake Placid, in upstate New York. She moved back to NYC aged 18 after three years at a boarding school in Connecticut.
Lana was sent to Connecticut to deal with her alcohol addiction. Before she became Lana Del Ray,
Elizabeth Grant made an album called 'Sirens' under the name May Jailer.
When Lizzy Grant made the name change for the first time she named herself Lana Del Ray with an 'a' like Man Ray. 'Ray' became 'Rey' fairly quickly following the release of her first album.
'Born To Die' technically Lana's second studio album topped the charts in 11 countries. I must add it is my favourite album!
