Lana Del Rey on Taylor Swift’s success: “She wants it more than anyone”

Lana Del Rey has spoken about the success Taylor Swift has achieved throughout the years.

While appearing in a new BBC feature story which explores Swift’s massive success, Del Rey opened up and shared her thoughts about the pop star has been able to keep going and keep one-upping herself throughout her career.

“She wants it,” the ‘Ride’ singer told the publication. “She’s told me so many times that she wants it more than anyone. And how amazing — she’s getting exactly what she wants.”

RAYE and KT Tunstall were also interviewed for the piece with the latter sharing: “She’s got the resilience and the chutzpah to be the boss of an enormous machine, employing thousands of people. To be able to handle that and handle what’s coming at her publicly, you’ve just got to be a one-off.”

“She is just one of those rare timeless artists who gets it right every time,” the ‘Escapism’ singer added. “She’s an absolute powerhouse.”

Swift is currently in the middle of the UK leg of her ‘Eras’ tour, with a three-night run at Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium kicking off on June 13. In a five-star review of her show in Edinburgh, NME shared: “Despite being an arena show, in a huge, cavernous venue, Swift and her fans have managed to cultivate a community. Strangers swap friendship bracelets, laugh and cry together, and embrace the tour’s in-jokes and lore (for example shouting “one, two, three, let’s go bitch” during ‘Delicate’).

“It’s the power of Swift, an artist who’s inspired not only the renaming of a Scottish Loch, but also countless fans to come out and embrace being a part of the Eras family. With The Eras Tour, then, Swift’s managed to craft a marvel of a show that comes with a beating heart.”

In other news, the pop star recently congratulated a couple that got engaged on the opening night of her ‘Eras’ tour in Edinburgh over the weekend.

During the second night (June 8), Swift also debuted two songs – ‘The Bolter’ and ‘Crazier’ – live for the first time ever as part of her surprise songs section of her ever-changing setlist.

She will now play three shows in Liverpool from June 13-15, one night in Cardiff on June 18 and three in London’s Wembley Stadium on June 18-22. She then heads to Dublin on June 28, before taking the tour around Europe.
