USA singer Elizabeth Grant’s stage name is Lana Del Rey. It is a blend of two names: those of movie star Lana Turner, and the Ford Del Rey car. Lana calls herself a gangsta version of Nancy Sinatra and defines her style as “Hollywood sadcore”. Her first full-length album came out in 2010 and was only available on iTunes for two months; it did not make her a star. A year later a homemade video with her song Video Games appeared on the internet and this quickly made the singer famous the world over. Shortly after that at the BRIT Awards 2012 Lana Del Rey won in the International Breakthrough category.
