To me, the performance was not great, but the backlash was all about how the world was in 2012, more than about how she sang. Everybody thought they needed to 'expose' new pop stars as fakes, and this was just the perfect bandwagon for people to jump on, letting them be among the first toi bash a new artist who had been hyped. It was the same idiocy that was leading a bunch of people to write about how her father had 'bought' her recording career (  :lmao:  ) - yep, everything they knew about  the music industry came from old sitcoms, and they were going to take her down.

 

There's no way that it was a deliberate ploy by Lana for 'publicity' - don't forget that it sent her into a depression that lasted about the next four years, and stopped her from wanting to ever appear on television again (a nervousness that seems to still be on her mind to this day).

It was not that bad. People were just being dramatic because they weren’t used to her style of singing and twirling

This. The fact that some fans think she did it for publicity :rip: That's worse than that shit about Rob paying her career lmao

I agree the performance launched her career. Love it or hate it but a lot of us probably wouldn't know Lana without that exposure

and the fact that all SNL performances generally sound like shit. 

 

I know I remeber watching Adele on SNL a few years back and she sounded like a dying animal. it wasn't that she's a bad singer, but the bad acoustics.
