Lana Del Rey lashed out at critics of her January 14 Saturday Night Live appearance last night — sort of!
In fact, it was SNL cast member Kristen Wiig who appeared as the singer during the “Weekend Update” segment on last night’s show, hosted by Channing Tatum.
“I thought [I sang two songs], but based on the public’s response, I must have clubbed a baby seal while singing the Taliban national anthem,” Wiig, as Rey, told Seth Meyers. “I am not here to defend my performance. The public has spoken and I have to accept that.”
She added, “I think people thought I was stiff, distant and weird, but there’s a perfectly good explanation for that: I am stiff, distant and weird!” she said.
