Lana Del Rey Is Still a Member of the Babysitters Club

Lana Del Rey

While Lana Del Rey has certainly come a long way from her days spent as Lizzy Grant, her life hasn’t changed completely. The ‘Video Games’ singer revealed that she even still has her old day job … Babysitting!

Despite looking ever the usual rockstar glam, clad in a leather jacket and her trademark loose waves and mile-long false eyelashes, Del Rey insists she’s normal. She sat down for an interview to promote her newly leaked album, ‘Born to Die’ (out Jan. 31) — and perhaps it services as an au pair in case the whole music thing doesn’t work out.

“People would be surprised to know that I live a really quiet life … I do a lot of the same things every day when I’m home,” Del Rey told MTV. “I still have my same babysitting job!” she laughed. “I babysit twice a week.” she continued, giggling. “When I’m here … that’s what I do, because it’s something I’ve been doing for a while,” she said. “But I have been traveling a lot.”

LDR will be traveling even more to promote ‘Born to Die’ while her hype is still at a fever pitch. She’s playing the SXSW Festival in March and launching a club tour this fall.

Del Rey revealed that she babysits for one 10-year-old boy — and that he knows that she’s “Lana Del Rey.” “He’s very with it.”

Lucky for Lana, her ‘Saturday Night Live’ stint probably aired way past his bedtime.
