"If you think someone is weird, you should criticize them as much as possible" + other pearls of wisdom from Kristen Wiig’s Lana Del Rey spoof on "SNL" last night. 

Oh yeah, and Bon Iver played. Our full musical recap.

Lana Del Rey’s debut being, quite literally, panned by critics from Billboard, Pitchfork and Spin. Since clearly, those strange Taiwanese animated news stories are the highest form of journalism. 

As for our “Born To Die” review… well, I’ve seen meaner things said about Lana Del Rey on my Facebook feed in the last 12 hours. Not saying we weren’t rightly critical, but did we pan it? Nah.

The Internet’s been well-established for 14 years. It’s not like 1962 where you can’t find out about me. My intention was never to transform into a different person. What other people think of me is none of my business. Sometimes, it hurts my feelings. But I have to just keep going. The good stuff is really good. Some of the other stuff is difficult, but I’ll be able to tour now, probably sing for a while. That’s nice for me.
