Sultry chanteuse Lana Del Rey picked up the EMA for Best Alternative at the 2012 EMAs, which are Europe's version of the MTV VMAs. The award ceremony took place in Germany tonight (Nov. 11), and while most of the awards were nabbed by pop artists with names like Bieber and Swift, alternative music was represented by Del Rey.

These days, Lana Del Rey makes videos like she's paid to do it -- oh wait, she is paid to do it. Regardless, the singer's recent string of videos -- including clips for 'Ride,' 'National Anthem' and 'Summertime Sadness' -- have showcased an impressive eye for striking images, and her latest, for the Born To Die: Paradise Edition bonus track 'Bel Air,' continues the hit parade.
"If I said I didn't plan for it to turn out this way, I'd be lying," Lana Del Rey says during the dramatic monologue that opens her new video for 'Ride,' which appears on the deluxe edition of 'Born to Die.' The clip is an homage to living the biker life of freedom on the open road, and while it's a telling line, what it's telling is open to interpretation.
Lana Del Rey has scored yet another magazine cover, and this time around the sultry singer has stripped down to celebrate. The occasion is Del Rey's selection as Woman of the Year by British GQ, and with that honor comes the singer completely naked on the front cover of the October issue of the magazine. LDR was on hand at the GQ Man of the Year Awards ceremony on Tuesday at London's Royal Opera House to accept the honor, even offering a few words of thanks.
Lana Del Rey sure has been keeping busy outside of the music world as of late, what with being named the
face of Jaguar, getting featured in an H&M lookbook and even nabbing her very own line of Mulberry luxury handbags. Now, LDR has landed the cover of the October issue of Vogue Australia, where she also gets a multi-page photo spread.
Add one more to the 8,000 jobs created by surging luxury automaker Jaguar in the last few years. The newest gig goes to Lana Del Rey, who has been named the face of Jaguar in a new promotional campaign for the forthcoming F-Type model sports car. The singer is pictured poolside in a plunging white bikini and floppy hat in one picture for the campaign, which promotes the stylish ride that's set to be revealed next month in Paris.
