The ones that hated the full lips beauty before felt avenged and didn’t miss the chance to yell “I told you so!!!” as loud as they could.
And then she did an awful job as the singing guest for Saturday Night Live. The beautifully colored balloon exploded and no fireworks came out. Everybody expected perfection and it wasn’t delivered. She was so awkward, almost terrified, her voice was all over the place, changing keys and generally not meeting all those expectations.
The thing is I heard Lana Del Rey singing live in other clips and she sounds wonderfully – I guess we all forgot she’s a human being and one socially awkward at that despite her apparent physical perfection. I think she just lost it in the face of all the pressure and unfortunately she happened to be on live television and not home alone as many of us are when we lose our shit.
I also thought she redeemed herself when she performed on "Late Show with David Letterman". While it's clear she's not a natural performer and sometimes the nerves get the best of her, Lana Del Rey is still a great talent.
Here you have a spectacular live performance of hers for comparison (she's also singing the same song -Video Games).
We have to accept not everybody’s is a social butterfly, some people are just awkward and weird and uncomfortable and stiff and that’s ok too even if they are famous. We’re all human, right?
