I Used Anagrams To Prove That Lana Del Rey Is A Terrorist
Surprise! I'm joining the self-loathing ranks of those who have "an opinion" on Lana Del Rey.
A few weeks ago, when Lana shat all over SNL, her performance sent everyone from Brooklyn bloggers to NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams into rage-comas. But last weekend, SNL jumped to her defense. Kristen Wiig's spoof on Weekend Update turned out to be a spoof of the backlash surrounding LDR's SNL performance. A metaspoof, if you will. How very po-mo of you, SNL.
The skit feels forced. There's a palpably tepid response to Seth Meyers' "Lana, just so you know, I stood up for you, and I think you're great." This, in the wake of reports that LDR's management allegedly "encouraged" the censorship of a satirical Thought Catalog article, and evidence of "cyber-bulling" courtesy of LDR's YouTube channel, makes me wonder if the indie pop pixie muscled Lorne Michaels into this misguided attempt at solidarity.
Not that I'm calling conspiracy just yet, but let's look a little closer into this "Lana" character. I'll be Robert Langdon, you be Nicolas Cage in all those shitty movies:
