Daniel Radcliffe Defends Lana Del Rey’s SNL….Performance

|

At least Daniel Radcliffe isn’t bad-mouthing you on Twitter…or Tumblr…or Facebook, Lana Del Rey. One down, millions upon millions to go! We’re sure the “Video Games” singer appreciates having someone in her corner, though, after critics tore into her Saturday Night Live debut. “It was unfortunate that people seemed to turn on her so quickly,” the Woman in Black actor said in Del Rey’s defense at the BAFTA nominations. “I also think people are making it about things other than the performance. If you read what people are saying about her online, it’s all about her past and her family and stuff that’s nobody else’s business.” Haters, if you’re going to hate, at least stay on topic!

Added Radcliffe, “I don’t think it warranted anywhere near that reaction.” Personally, we thought Lana’s performance was weird, slow and vocally all over the place…a.k.a. everything we like about a Lana Del Ray song. And her hair! It looked like a wig such as Aphrodite herself would wear! Or RuPaul! So what did you think? Was Daniel right to leap to Lana’s defense? Or was Lana Del Rey’s SNL performance enough to override both her celebrity supporters and that shimmering honey-colored mane?
