Lana Del Rey Poses Nude For 'GQ' Magazine
Some considered Lana Del Rey's naked 'GQ' cover shoot to be sexist, as none of the men gracing alternate covers were nude, but Del Rey seemed to take no issue
It may technically be the 15th Annual Men of the Year Awards Special Issue of GQ, but a nude Lana Del Rey, 26, takes the title of the British GQ's Woman of the Year, and the "Video Games" singer bared all for the GQ photo shoot, gracing the cover wearing nothing but sapphire jewelry, bright red lipstick and matching and nail polish.
The cover garnered a little bit of controversy, as there are alternate covers of the issue in which Tinie Tempah, Robbie Williams, John Slattery and James Corden — all men — appear clothed.
Del Rey, on the other hand, didn't take much issue with the photo op. "We had a beautiful shoot in Monaco and I had a really interesting interview — for a change — and I was reminded why I love to sing and why I wanted to become a writer," she said when she accepted the GQ "Woman of the Year" award in London last week, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
"Also, Paul, the creative director, was very hands on with the shoot," Del Rey, whose birth name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant said. "In fact, if you see inside the magazine — in the middle of the spread — you'll see a hand hoisting up one of my boobs. That's Paul's hand. Couldn't have done it without him."
