Lana Del Rey isn't afraid of owning her sexuality.

In her new song "F--king My Way Up to the Top," the 28-year-old acknowledges the rumored reason for much of her success. But as she tells Complex's 2014 August-September issue, the provocative lyrics are just "commentary, like, 'I know what you think of me,' and I'm alluding to that."

"You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry," she adds, "but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying."

That said, Lana is the first to admit she likes "a physical love," saying, "I like a hands-on love. [Pauses] How can I say this without getting into too much trouble? I like a tangible, passionate love."

"For me," she explains, "if it isn't physical, I'm not interested…Everything else is so hard; hopefully love is the one thing that is actually fun."

And if Lana's straightforwardness bothers you, that's A-OK. "The good thing about catching so much grief from critics is that you literally do not f--king care," she tells Complex. "It put me in a mind frame where I expect things not to go right, because they generally don't."

If homegirl weren't the queen of "Summertime Sadness," we'd write that one off as humblebrag.
