Lana Del Rey on 'SNL' appearance: 'Performing on television is weird'
The 'Video Games' singer appeared on Saturday Night Live last weekend (January 14), giving two performances which were panned by various Twitter users and Juliette Lewis.
Talking to MTV News, Del Rey downplayed the importance of appearing on the iconic Saturday Night Live, insisting that music is not her main focus in life and that she could be just as happy without it.
"I find it weird... sometimes. [It] depends on the day. You know, like, [it] depends on what's going on with my family and everyone around me," the 25-year-old said about performing on TV.
"If I have other things to think about, or I'm trying to get things done for somebody else, and I'm not in my own way, then... I'm like, 'This doesn't really matter'. Sometimes it seems more important to me than other times, I don't know."
Del Rey continued: "Things are cool. They always will be, whether the music goes good or not. Like, I consider being able to sing a luxury, it doesn't run my life, is not my main focus. I love it, I feel grateful. I'm honoured to be on SNL. I'm happy to be here, but if I didn't have it, I'd be happy too."
Her debut album Born To Die will be released in the UK on January 30 and the US on January 31.
