Lana Del Rey to play SNL on Jan. 14th

Holy shit.

Lana Del Rey will make her U.S. TV debut on Saturday Night Live January 14 in advance of her new album Born to Die (January 31 / Interscope).

I’m impressed, if that’s even the right word. Not sure I would put this vixen up in front of a national TV audience and guarantee her two musical slots as a first shot, but she seems to be making hella waves right now and there’s still a huge swath of the public that does not get informed musically via the hipster music blogs. Carles is going to have a field day with this one…
