Lana Del Rey has shrugged off criticism of her Saturday Night Live performance over the weekend (14Jan12), insisting her music career is not the "main focus" of her life.
The singer/songwriter appeared on the hit U.S. sketch show to sing her tracks Video Games and Blue Jeans, but viewers were unimpressed with her lacklustre performance, and many - including rocker/actress Juliette Lewis - took to the internet to question her talent.
However, Del Rey is adamant the backlash has not bothered her as she finds singing on TV shows "weird".
She tells MTV News, "I find it weird... sometimes. (It) depends on the day.
"If I have other things to think about, or I'm trying to get things done for somebody else, and I'm not in my own way, then... I'm like, 'This doesn't really matter'. Sometimes it seems more important to me than other times, I don't know.
"Things are cool. They always will be, whether the music goes good or not. Like, I consider being able to sing a luxury, it doesn't run my life, is not my main focus. I love it, I feel grateful. I'm honoured to be on Snl. I'm happy to be here, but if I didn't have it, I'd be happy too."
