Lana Del Rey, Framed
Lana, whose real name is Joe Tompkins, actually directed this week's video, "Video Games." She sang the song in January on Saturday Night Live, and earned the scorn of many, many viewers. She was mocked as being lackluster, weird, and having "one of the worst outings in SNL history."
Are these criticisms fair? No, not all.
Joe, we mean Lana, is a strikingly beautiful singer who's also a songwriter of considerable talent. Born To Die, the LP "Video Games" appears on, was released just a few weeks ago, but has already hit #2 in the U.S.
We trust you, readers: is Lana a gifted musician who's broken all the rules, or an internet flash-in-the-pan, like all the other blogs on Y! Music? Post your thoughts right away!
