A corporate create 'alt' character. She's fake. That's why you don't like her is because it's like being next to a West World android. It's close to real, it just feels off.

This is the answer, I think. Lana Del Rey's music doesn't sound like she's writing songs based on her life experiences. It sounds like she's writing songs as part of her gimmick of being an edgy cinematic character. Therefore it feels contrived and not an inner look at the singer/songwriter's inner psyche. It's why you can enjoy pop music but if it's just purchased songs from other songwriters (like a Britney Spears album), it feels hollow to listen to it too much.
