“Wow watching this ‘singer’ on SNL is like watching a 12 year old in their bedroom when they're pretending to sing and perform.”
Lana Del Rey's "Video Games" is a slow burn of a song — but it was too slow a burn for some "Saturday Night Live" viewers.
The songstress is a divisive figure for music fans, embraced by some for her modern-day torch songs and dismissed by others as a poseur. Her "SNL" performance of "Video Games" and another song, "Blue Jeans," seem to have won her few new fans.
She was invited to peform ahead of the release of her album, "Born to Die." The Twitterati were brutal.
Among the unimpressed viewers was Juliette Lewis, a star of NBC's new legal drama "The Firm," who broke ranks with the network to criticize Del Rey.
"Wow watching this 'singer' on SNL is like watching a 12 year old in their bedroom when they're pretending to sing and perform. #signofourtimes," she tweeted.
Added actress Eliza Dushku: "Who…..is…..this wack-a-doodle chick performing on #SNL..? Whaaaa?"
