Lana Del Rey may have lost fans after her bizarre performances on Saturday Night Live on Jan. 14, but Daniel Radcliffe is sticking by her! The Harry Potter star, who hosted the show this past weekend, says he doesn't think her performances of "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans" "warranted anywhere near" the reaction she received.
“It was unfortunate that people seemed to turn on her so quickly,” Daniel, who annouced the BAFTA nominations this morning, told the British press, according to EW. “I also think people are making it about things other than the performance,” the actor added. “If you read what people are saying about her online, it’s all about her past and her family and stuff that’s nobody else’s business.”
But it seems like people who turned on the up-and-coming singer are changing their minds about her performance.
After watching SNL on Saturday, actress Juliette Lewis Tweeted, "Wow watching this ‘singer’ on SNL is like watching a 12 yearold in their bedroom when theyre pretending to sing and perform "signofourtimes." Then, on Sunday, she backpedaled, writing, "I woke up singing a @LanaDelRey song! Such great haunting melodies! Regardless of my own taste LIVE she's a #FreshandYummy songwriter.Period."
So, what do you think? Will Lana's album, Born to Die, debut well on Jan. 31, or crash and burn?
