Those who believed one bad Saturday Night Live performance would kill off Lana Del Rey’s career before it even got started can eat their hat, as the singer’s new album Born To Die debuted this week at #1 on iTunes in 14 countries (including here in the US). The jury’s still out how Lana’s LP will fare the next few weeks, and Taiwan’s Next Media Animation studio (the geniuses behind these crazy segments on Beyonce’s baby and Justin Bieber) remains doubtful of the “Video Games” starlet’s staying power. Check out the journey of “The Lana Del Rey Fameball” below.
There’s so much to love about this clip, but we particularly adore the two speech bubbles harassing LDR: the first reading “Worst Outing In SNL History”, followed by “12 Yearold”. Out of all the criticisms we heard of Lana’s performance, we don’t recall anyone referring to her as a pre-teen. (Unless, of course, we missed a few while compiling our Review Revue.)
