London - Lana Del Rey loves to “live fast and freely”.

The 'Video Games' singer says she loves to take risks but is happiest but when she is helping other people.

She told Tokyo Numero magazine: “I loves to take things as they come and live fast and freely.

“I find when my life is about other people i am more passionate and creative because I'm not getting in my own way.

“I feel the most beautiful when I'm being of service to other people.”

Lana also revealed she studied metaphysics before finding fame because she was interested in the connection between God and science.

She said: “It bridged the gap between God and science.

“I was interested in God and how technology could bring us closer to finding out where we came from and why.”

Lana - whose real name is Lizzie Grant -previously admitted she often becomes uncomfortable on stage and sometimes has to kneel during her performances in order to hide her visible discomfort but is grateful her fans do their best to put her at ease.

She said: "I love to take care of the songs - that's my natural place - then, when I get on stage that's not my element.

"Sometimes I kneel down because I am trembling or touch the audience because I don't know what else to do. But the nice thing about the kids is that they feel bad for me, and pass me soft toys!" - Bang Showbiz
