The article in question was written by Tim Jonze with the headline "Lana Del Rey: ‘I Wish I Was Dead Already.'" In the piece, Jonze quotes the singer as saying, "I wish I was dead already" and "I do! I don't want to have to keep doing this...Everything. That's just how I feel. If it wasn't that way, then I wouldn't say it. I would be scared if I knew [death] was coming, but..." Rey also claimed her music idols are Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain, who both died at age 27.
Flash-forward to yesterday, when Rey took to Twitter to blast the article, Jonze and The Guardian's music critic Alexis Petridis (the tweets has since been deleted).
