‘Controversial’ chanteuse Lana Del Rey has been busy fielding interviews across the country (and abroad!) in promotion of her newly released debut album Born To Die. (Want to win a copy?)

During a radio interview with Rick Astley on the UK’s Magic 105.4, Lana spoke briefly about one of her musical inspirations: Miss Britney Spears.

From MTV:

When it comes to Britney, I’m not really interested in a ton of female musicians but there is something about her that compelled me, the way she sings and just the way she looks.

The Holy Spearit thanks you for your kind words and blesses you with Vanilla candles and kisses, Queen Lana Del Slay.
