Lana Del Rey Opens Up About Panic Attacks

(Radio.com) Lana Del Rey graces Billboard's latest cover, where she opens up about her fear of death and her tendency to get panic attacks, and how she's dealt with them over the years.

According to Del Rey, she's always been anxiety-prone, especially when it comes to death."It's hard for me sometimes to think about going on when I know we're going to die," she said.

It's an issue she's dealt with as long as she can remember. "I remember being-I was, I think, 4 years old-and I'd just seen a show on TV where the person was killed. And I turned to my parents and said, 'Are we all going to die?" They said "Yes," and I was totally distraught! I broke down in tears and said, 'We have to move!" Del Rey explained.

Even though she ended up seeing a therapist to work through the crippling issue, Del Rey finally decided that music served as a much better balm. "But I'm really most comfortable sitting in that chair in the studio, writing or singing," she explained." Read more here.
