If you thought the buzz surrounding sadcore songstress Lana Del Rey was getting louder following the premiere of her dramatic Woodkid-directed “Born To Die” video, expect it to hit a fever pitch next month. Born To Die, the 25-year-old’s debut LP for Interscope, will be released on January 31. But ahead of that, Rey will make her U.S. television debut by acting as musical guest on a little show called Saturday Night Live on January 14, an episode that will be hosted by Daniel Radcliffe. Harry Potter couldn’t have conjured up a better gig for her to be introduced to the American masses through. How will she fare?
