Lana Del Rey on ‘SNL’ appearance: ‘Performing on television is weird’


Lana Del Rey has described the experience of performing on tv as “weird”.

The singer appeared on Saturday Night Live last weekend (January 14), giving two performances which were panned by various Twitter users and Juliette Lewis.

Del Rey told MTV News, “I find it weird… sometimes. [It] depends on the day. You know, like, [it] depends on what’s going on with my family and everyone around me.”

The 25-year-old added, “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.”

The ‘Video Games’ singer continued: “Things are cool. They always will be, whether the music goes good or not. 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 honoured to be on SNL. I’m happy to be here, but if I didn’t have it, I’d be happy too.”
