Career Beginnings

As a teenager, she was sent by her parents to the Kent School in Kent, Connecticut, to resolve a budding drinking problem. After graduating from high school, she spent a year living on Long Island with her aunt and uncle, working as a waitress. Her uncle is the one who taught her how to play the guitar, and she began writing her own songs and performing in clubs around the city. In the fall of 2004, Del Rey enrolled at Fordham University, where she majored in philosophy. She produced two EPs under the stage name May Jailer during this time. Del Rey graduated from Fordham with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2008.


In 2008, she signed with independent label 5 Points, and released an EP through them, followed by a full-length album in 2010 titled "Lana Del Rey AKA Lizzy Grant". She subsequently bought back the rights to her first album, and removed it from online stores. After uploading self-made music videos for her songs "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans" to YouTube in 2011, Del Rey gained wider recognition. In particular, the "Video Games" video became a viral internet sensation. Stranger Records signed her to release the song as her debut single. She then signed a joint deal with Interscope Records and Polydor, and released her studio album "Born to Die" with them in January 2012. The album reached No. 1 in 11 countries, and sold 3.4 million copies in 2012. While the album has been popular, her live performances have been met with disdain from many critics.

She described it as a "tribute to Los Angeles", having moved to California in 2012. "Honeymoon" was critically praised, and reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200. To support the album, Del Rey embarked on The Endless Summer Tour in May 2015, which featured artists Courtney Love and Grimes as the opening acts. In 2016, Del Rey collaborated with The Weeknd on his album "Starboy" (2016), providing vocals on the songs "Party Monster" and "Stargirl Interlude".
