It's been a long time coming for our beloved pouty-lipped vixen Lana Del Rey. Before she became a household name and the official wedding singer at the Kimye wedding, Lana was Lizzy Grant -- a soft-spoken, wide-eyed young girl trying to catch her big break in NYC. We've uncovered Lana's hidden files and tracked her evolution from Lizzie Grant to Lana Del Rey. Here's her journey:
