Lana Del Rey has admitted that she wants to be known for her charitable works like famous philanthropist Angelina Jolie.

In an interview with French magazine Le Figaro, the Born To Die singer spoke about her own charity work and revealed that she admires Angie's involvement in African causes.

She said, "Music was my passion, but my work with this foundation is more important. I myself had the chance to be [helped by an establishment].

"Helping others now feels like it's my turn to give something back. I want to become a sort of Angelina Jolie.

"Like her, I think fame is nothing in itself, but it can be put to good use - by using it to generate money for charity for example."

Lana also spoke out about her issues with alcohol and he she felt they stemmed from feeling like the odd one out when she was growing up.
She started drinking from the age of 14 before her parents sent her on a detox programme at 16.

While that might not seen like such a young age, you have to remember the legal age in the US is 21.

She said, "As a child, I felt different, she says. I always wanted to make my life a work of art."

"When you no longer drink, it is more difficult to celebrate. In fact, when I quit drinking, I lost my life.

"It took my all to reinvent myself. Find the roots. It was very difficult. At the same time, I had never felt rooted in whatever I've done or wherever I've been since."

We think Lana has managed to turn things round rather well for herself.
