Relationship with Lana Del Rey[]

Del Rey has portrayed her mother in various songs throughout her career. Hill-Grant is mentioned positively in "Old Money" and neutrally in "Aviation". On the other hand, in songs like "My Momma", "Raise Me Up (Mississippi South)", "Black Bathing Suit", "Wildflower Wildfire", "A&W", and "Fingertips" and in the poem "LA Who Am I to Love You", Del Rey alludes to a rocky, unstable, and unfriendly relationship with her mother.

Del Rey appears to excludes Hill-Grant when discussing her family, and has referred to her friend and AA sponsor, Candace Block, as the mother figure in her self-described "chosen family".[2][dead link] On Mother's Day in 2020, Del Rey shared various posts indicating that she finds the day "challenging".
