Since her pop culture debut in 2010, Lana Del Rey appearances have increased in number and variety. Once known as the darling of the Tumblr world, Del Rey -- formerly known as Lizzy Grant -- is now a force to be reckoned with in fashion, art and music. The singer's sorrow-dripped sound coupled with her often raunchy, yet deeply emotional lyrics have won her a special place in the hearts of the young, tortured and artistic citizens of the Internet. This, alongside her retro Americana-meets-trailer-park-chic sense of style, make her one of this generation's most creative icons.

This has resulted in tons of buzz surrounding her musical background (many believe she is an over-manufactured, disingenuous marketing tool for the "young and beautiful" hipsters of the world), as well as her current work. The latter involves endless photo shoots, a handful of campaigns with H&M and even an online sadness map.
