Lana Del Rey is in Paris to promote her new album, Born To Die, and it seems like the 25-year-old internet sensation-turned-songwriter has recovered from her embarrassing performance on Saturday Night Live earlier this month.
Despite her shaky rendition of "Video Games" on SNL, Del Rey (real name: Elizabeth Grant) told Rolling Stone,"I actually felt good about it. I thought I looked beautiful and sang fine ... I know some people didn't like it, but that's just the way I perform, and my fans know that." Del Rey did admit to being nervous, saying live performance has never been her forte because she is "not a natural performer or exhibitionist." Um, can someone please remind us why she's a singer?
"There's backlash about everything I do. It's nothing new," she continued. "When I walk outside, people have something to say about it. It wouldn't have mattered if I was absolutely excellent. People don't have anything nice to say about this project." Well, maybe if she was more forthcoming about the fact that her millionaire father financed her career, we wouldn't mind!
