Since last weekend’s SNL episode, a lot of the discussion in the media this week has been Lana Del Ray‘s performance as the musical guest. I happened to have watched the episode myself and was definitely… confused to say the least about her performance, where she sang “Blue Jeans” and “Video Games“. I was thinking, “Is there something I’m missing?” She seems so disinterested in what she was doing and her voice was all over the place. The media had a field with this performance since then, even comparing the performance to Ashlee Simpson’s lip-syncing ordeal.
So what does she have to say about this? Well, this week she sat down with FUSE and in terms of her live singing ability, she had the following to say: “I think like, the people who have been listening to my music for a little while know that I’m more of a writer and, like, a studio singer. So I think if you come to the show, you just come to hear the songs on the record that you might like.” Hmm, isn’t that why everyone goes to concerts? She also said, “You can’t expect too much from my show.” Crazy! You never expect someone to say that about their own performance. That being said, at least she’s being honest. I dunno, what do you think about all of this?
Check out her interview below and see for yourself. Do you think she’ll be able to recover from this? Either way, I’m certain it will haunt her for the next while anyway.
