Recently Lana Del Rey has been receiving a lot of criticism from her performance on SNL. I’m sure you all heard, but just in case here is a little snippet of the during and after.
The critiscm she recieved ranged from being considered fake for not using her real name “Lizzy Grant”, to saying she was stiff as a board. SNL followed up however with this with a clip of their own, which pretty much feeds everything back to those who are not so nice.
Since all this has gone down, Music Feed has now reported that Lana Del Rey has decided to cancel her Australian tour. Many are saying she has decided to keep on the DL, after SNL. But despite all the negative feedback from her performance she has since had “her expected arrival at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with “Born To Die,” selling 77,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan. It’s the highest entry for a female artist’s full-length major label debut since Jackie Evancho‘s “Dream With Me” bowed at No. 2 on July 2, 2011.” Read more here.
I have just received confirmation that my new Lana Del Rey album is on its way from JB HiFi, and am very excited! But what do you think, were the critics fair?
