Lana Del Rey

In case you had any doubt that Lana Del Ray is on her way to super-stardom, she "will make her U.S. TV debut on Saturday Night Live January 14 in advance of her new album 'Born To Die' (January 31 / Interscope)," Pitchfork says "Video Games" is the 19th best song of 2011, and her new video for "Born To Die" already has 2.5 million views on YouTube (and that's not even where it first showed up). You can up its view count below...

playing SNL is not just about paying dues. It's about hip, young, new artists.

Wow finally Ashlee Simpson gets redemption as she will no longer be the worst musical performance this show has ever seen!

From an interview in Oyster mag:

You probably get asked this all the time, but… are your lips real?
Yes, they are.
Wow. Would you ever get plastic surgery?
Maybe.
What would you get?
[Laughs] What would I get? Ummm, I don’t know.

To be fair to Lana, giving that many blowjobs to advance your career is hard work.

Her face is seriously creepy in that video. Everything about that video is awful

You know that look cats get on their faces when they're crapping? That's what she looks like.

After playing for years in clubs, living in her van and prevailing on the network of music lovers across this great country for the bare necessities as she chased the dream of bringing her musical gifts to ever greater audiences, Lana Del Rey is finally getting her due as musical guest on Saturday Night Live, following in the footsteps of her heroes Nirvana and Elvis Costello....

Actually she was unknown, and through the magic of autotune, botox, and photoshop, plus the sponsorship of someone somewhere who sees dollars and has connections, she is being forced on an audience by a music industry that still thinks music fans are stupid sheep who live in fear of litigation and crave empty memes like Lana.

Hey Lana, no matter how horrendous your deal is (and it must be terrible if the powers that be are spending this kind of money on you) save what you can. I await your reality show.

This is like that crap that's on the Brit awards between great bands like Oasis and Mumford.

I guess headling bowery makes you large enough to play snl...

Um, yeah, every artist who appears on SNL has made it big. They make their first million, then retire to a condo at The Edge in w'burg

Posted by Anonymous | December 19, 2011 8:38 PM

The song remains the same.
Seriously. She is a one-note singer/performer. And her eyes are dead and kind of creepy.

Posted by Anonymous | December 19, 2011 9:58 PM

serious question, can someone point me to a modern singer who sounds like nancy sinatra?

Serious question, do lip implants interfere with hummus eating?

Shallow and empty, with no ideas and nothing interesting to say.

bitter, jealous people.

You might want to reconsider promoting Lana del Ray. She used tigers in her Born to Die video. I like the song, but cannot forgive the use of captive tigers.

Posted by A vegan | January 9, 2012 9:00 PM

she's gorgeous.
