"Lana Del Rey becomes the first artist in years to play Saturday Night Live before releasing a major album. Watch her sing "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans" at Idolator."
this is the original post. at what point does the post say 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, etc.?
yr annoying - if you weren't drunk when posting these arguments there's no excuse for being so dumb, if you're really interpreted this post that way.
every band, technically, assuming that after they played SNL didn't break-up or stop releasing studio albums played it before releasing a major studio album - so with yr backass stupid logic the last band to do this was whoever played last week.
I saw this live. I had no idea who that girl was (I thought it was Isla Fisher for a second). Wow, was this horrendous! Who's cock (or cocks) did she have to suck to get on SNL???
From her wikipedia:
She is the daughter of domain investor and millionaire Rob Grant. Grant's management chose her stage name, "I wanted to be a band but the label I was with and the team I had around me absolutely wanted me to be a solo artist. Lana Del Rey came from a series of managers and lawyers over the last 5 years who wanted a name that they thought better fit the sound of the music."  Del Rey first released a 3-track EP titled Kill Kill in October 2008.. She later released a full-length studio abum titled "Lana Del Ray" in January 2010. It was the singer's first professionally produced album, released under Lizzy Grant on an independent label with producer David Kahne. Del Rey stated that "David asked to work with me only a day after he got my demo. He is known as a producer with a lot of integrity and who had an interest in making music that wasn't just pop."Her father, Robert Grant, helped with the marketing of the album,  which was available for purchase on iTunes for a brief period before being withdrawn for unknown reasons
Best post on tumblr about her "performance:"
Lana: *mumbles mumbles* Lana: *dances awkwardly* Lana: *mumbles mumbles* Lana: *moan and whines* Lana: *mumbles in different key*
I hope anyone who said that Lana Del Ray had any sort of talent whatsoever watched her performances last night and inserted both of their feet simultaneously into their mouths. She is the physical manifestation of everything that is wrong with the music biz and she needs to take her fish lips and cracked out Betty Boop voice and have Daddy pay for her to leave the country.
she does have another full length out, but from a tiny independent, so "major" is still important in the messaging.
Honestly, I think everyone is shitting all over her too much because it's the cool thing to do. "Video Games" is a good song, whereas the rest has somewhat fallen flat. It's not her fault she's gotten so popular, but it is her fault for not being ready for it. She clearly is too nervous for tv and still needs time.
I'll probably enjoy her album, but no matter how good it is it'll be torn apart which is kind of a sad state of affairs
