Lana Del Rey Slips F-Bomb on Radio as 2009 Footage Goes Viral
Following a flurry of scrutiny over her authenticity and criticism of her ‘Saturday Night Live’ performance, Lana Del Rey faced yet another snafu. The ‘Video Games’ singer cursed on a British radio show this morning!
During an interview with Huey Morgan on BBC 6Music this morning, Del Rey uttered, “f—ing hell” on air. What a rebel! Del Rey immediately apologized for the slip, which the Metro reports actually earned her some fans. “Lana del Ray did a swear on BBC6Music. Shocker. She’s so gangster,” one fan tweeted. Another said, “I think the naughty swear slip up made me like her even more.”
The move may have actually been beneficial for Del Rey because it humanizes her. The ‘Blue Jeans’ chanteuse has come under fire for essentially being a money, marketing and record label mannequin, changing everything from her name to her lips for fame.
The accusations against her authenticity are only growing louder. Footage from a performance in 2009, featuring the then-blonde thin lipped scruffy looking Lizzy Grant is going viral online. While she still sounds like herself, her look was a far cry from the bee stung ‘Valley of the Dolls’ style she has now.
You can watch the clip of the Artist Formerly Known as Lizzy Grant below, where she sings, “Let me put on a show for you.” We wonder if she only knew how loaded that lyric would become three years later.
