Did Lana Del Rey Bomb on SNL?
Not ready for prime time after all?
Buzzed-about, edgy singer Lana Del Rey made her national TV debut on Saturday Night Live Jan. 14. The "Video Games" chanteuse is one of the only singers to get tapped for the gig before the release of an album. (Born to Die comes out Jan. 31 on Interscope)
Not everyone was impressed by the performance, in which the 25-year-old newcomer (real name: Elizabeth Grant) seemed nervous and out of sync. Actress and singer Juliette Lewis complained in a subsequently deleted Tweet: "Wow watching this 'singer' on SNL is like watching a 12 yearold [sic] in their bedroom when theyre pretending to sing and perform #signofourtimes."
Added Eliza Dushku: "Who.....is.....this wack-a-doodle chick performing on #SNL..? Whaaaa?" she tweeted.
"I'm a good musician," Del Rey (who became an internet sensation several months back upon the release of her "Video Games" clip online) told MTV News last week of her neophyte status. "And I may not have a record out now, but I have been singing for a very long time, and I think that [SNL's] Lorne [Michaels] knows that, and everyone over there knows that. It's not a fluke decision."
