That was a hard time in my life.”

Revealing why she went into music, she said, “I wanted to be part of a high-class scene of musicians.

Her stage name was inspired by actress Lana Turner and the Ford Del Rey sedan. She said, “I wanted a name I could shape the music towards. I was going to Miami quite often, speaking a lot of Spanish with my friends from Cuba—Lana Del Rey reminded us of the glamour of the seaside. It sounded gorgeous coming off the tip of the tongue.”
