Lana bb Brushes off the Haters

Lana Del Rey's "Saturday Night Live" performance was divisive to say the very least, as she seemed to battle nerves (and some rather shaky vocal moments), circumstances that only gave more ammunition to her critics.

Of course, to be fair, given her rather meteoric rise to the mainstream, Del Rey hasn't exactly had a ton of time to develop her stage presence, though, as previous television appearances — like this "Later Live ... with Jools Holland" performance from October — prove, she's certainly capable of much more than she showcased on "SNL" (at least vocally).

Still, Del Rey will be the first to admit that she's yet to truly be at ease when it comes to performing on television. ... In fact, she finds the entire process to be, well, a little off-putting, as she told MTV News last week.

"I find it weird ... sometimes. [It] depends on the day," Del Rey said. "You know, like, [it] depends on what's going on with my family and everyone around me. If I have other things to think about, or I'm trying to get things done for somebody else, and I'm not in my own way, then ... I'm like, 'This doesn't really matter.' Sometimes it seems more important to me than other times, I don't know."

And though, at the time, she couldn't have predicted how her "SNL" performance would turn out — she said she wasn't even sure which songs she'd be singing — Del Rey said that, no matter what happened, and despite how weird she may find the entire TV experience, she's just trying to enjoy the ride.

"Things are cool. They always will be, whether the music goes good or not," she said. "Like, I consider being able to sing a luxury, it doesn't run my life, is not my main focus. I love it, I feel grateful. I'm honored to be on 'SNL' I'm happy to be here, but if I didn't have it, I'd be happy too."


W Magazine Interview
Music's latest indie sensation:
siren singer Lana Del Rey

:Lana Del Rey looks like a gangster Lauren Bacall, is fond of quoting JFK and      Errol Flynn, finds musical inspiration in the bright lights of Monte Carlo, and sings with enough grace and longing—a style she calls Hollywood Sadcore—to break your heart after just one verse. Six months ago, few knew her name. But since posting the promo clip in July for “Video Games,” her languorous and thrillingly cinematic ballad (also the first single off her new album, due out next month), the 25-year-old from Lake Placid, New York, has rocketed to indie fame.

However, it is Del Rey’s attention-­grabbing videos that truly encapsulate her self-described Lolita-got-lost-in-the-hood appeal. Edited by Del Rey using iMovie, they feature spliced clips from old films and cartoons and images of fast cars interspersed with her own seductive webcam shots, in which she’s dolled-up like a street-savvy femme fatale with bombshell hair and bling jewelry. (“I lived in the Bronx for three years,” she explains. “We liked lots of gold, and we liked it big.”)

For some—namely, a few malcontent music bloggers who have taken issue with both the size of her fantastic pout and the fact that she changed her name from the far less exotic Lizzy Grant—her image is just too cool to be real. “I don’t understand it. Contro­versy is the last thing I expected from this project,” she says over the phone, with a long-lash wink—or so one would imagine, coming from a girl who playfully sings about hitting boys in the back of the head with a gun.
