Lana Del Rey Goes Nude For GQ And Reveals She Was Sent To Boarding School To Sober Up

Lana Del Rey has been named GQ's Woman Of The Year -- and to celebrate, she stripped off for a steamy cover shoot!

The singer posed in a series of raunchy photos for the men's magazine, including going completely nude on the cover.

Why was Lana chosen?

"Having provoked equal amounts of debate and outrage throughout an incredible year, she fulfills one of the key requirements for any good pop star: she gets talked about. Following the all-conquering "Video Games" and her number one debut album Born To Die, Del Rey signed to NEXT models, wrote the best song on Cheryl Cole's last album, teamed up with ASAP Rocky and has acted as a muse and model to Mulberry, Jaguar and H&M. Truly 2013 is hers for the taking."

And the singer revealed in the interview that she was a massive drinker as a teen - and her parents sent her away to boarding school to sober up.

"I was a big drinker at the time. I would drink every day," Lana told GQ Magazine.

"I would drink alone. I thought the whole concept was so f---ing cool. A great deal of what I wrote on [the album] Born To Die is about these wilderness years.

"My parents were worried, I was worried. I knew it was a problem when I liked it more than I liked doing anything else. I was like, 'I'm f---ed. I am totally f---ed.'"

"At first it's fine and you think you have a dark side," she told GQ. "It's exciting, and then you realise the dark side wins every time if you decide to indulge in it.

"It's also a completely different way of living when you know that. [You're] a different species of person. It was the worst thing that ever happened to me."
