Lana Del Rey Responds To SNL Critics ‘Singing Is Not My Main Focus’

Written by John Ritchie on January 20, 2012

Lana Del Rey has spoken about her highly criticised Saturday Night Live performance, saying that singing is not her main focus. Speaking with MTV the Video Games singer said:

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…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.
