Lana Del Rey donating ticket sales back to the cities she performs in

Lana Del Rey donating ticket sales back to the cities she performs in

The 'Summertime Sadness' singer is known for her generous acts, having also made a huge donation back in 2020.

While most celebrities are known for their insane bank balances, Lana Del Rey has been trying to give back.

The ‘Summertime Sadness’ singer has been donating ticket sales from her tour to various cities she visits, with the A-Lister making a candid admission on stage.

Even more surprisingly, it’s not the first time that the Grammy Award winner has made a very generous donation. See her on stage in the clip below:

Filmed by a fan recent concert, the 38-year-old gives a heartfelt explanation about how she supports every city she performs in.

It’s pretty moving stuff as Del Rey tells the audience: “I just wanted to say thank you to you and just every city I’ve gone to before this…every ticket, every dollar, it is poured right back into the city.”

Whilst the more jaded among you might be questioning this, it seems that the chart-topper is sincere as she even looks a little emotional as she talked.

The singer made the candid admission on stage.

“It’s not about that for me…I know that sounds cheesy but I do it because I love it…I don’t need to…I just love it and we’re all about the place we’ve been to,” she gushed to the West Virginia crowd, who cheered as she spoke candidly with her fans.

Unsurprisingly, the video has gone viral after being shared on TikTok with over 16,400 views on the social media app.

Though fans might be in awe of the Grammy Award winner’s generosity, it’s not the first time Del Rey has used her fame to help others.

Back in 2020, the singer-turned-author donated the advance payment for her poetry book, Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass, to the Dig Deep Project.

If you are unfamiliar with the charity, the group helps provide clean water for some of the world’s most vulnerable groups.

The $350,000 (£285.9k) was later spent supporting the Navajo Nation, with Del Rey claiming it was her way of giving ‘personal reparations’.

Sharing the news on Instagram, she wrote: “As I’ve been lucky enough to be given an advance from Simon and Schuster, I’m so grateful to be able to spread that money around to foundations that are in need of our help beginning with foundations connected to the Navajo community.”

“I look forward to updating you on the rest of the donations that we make throughout the year,” she added in the post.

Turns out money isn’t the reason we exist.
