In the school years a girl was dreaming of being carried away to somewhere else most of the time. It was going for a long, until 15 years old Elizabeth started attending the philosophy classes according to the school schedule. She could have found soulmates there who were puzzled by the question «For what reason are we all here?» as much as she was.
Same period she got used to alcohol, being immersed in that new kind of «entertainment». Later she had written the song «Born to Die», which dedicated to this dark period of her life. Fortunately, her parents were seriously concerned about daughter’s behavior and decided to ship her off to be in safe that became the boarding school in Connecticut. And it was a truly wise solution – Elizabeth hadn’t drunk a drop of alcohol till her 18.
She wrote her first song at the age of 11. «The song was called «China Palace» and it tells the story about how to be a princess», – the singer has recalled later.
