After watching “Lana Del Rey” a.k.a Lizzy Grant, daughter of ultra rich NY businessman Robert Grant, perform on SNL I was left with a feeling I hadn’t felt before. I now believe it is a form of PTSD. Yeah, it was that bad.
Now I totally understand that most artists, especially new ones, don’t do well on SNL. It’s been notorious for bad acoustics since the beginning. It also separates the Kanye Wests and Linkin Parks from the Ashlee Simpsons & Ke$has.
Lana sounded like a Japanese person trying to sing in English with a German accent. I’m sure that what came out of her mouth is not unlike the sounds that come out of a walrus’s mouth when it’s doing high school theater vocal exercises.
Lana is supposed to be some new kind of artist. Removed by the record labels from her typical young girl, pop sound, she has been reinvented as a “gangsta Nancy Sinatra” that sings about James Dean and Video Games. Yeah, that shit cray.
I’ll give her another chance but I think she should pay for my PTSD therapy and meds.
