Lana Del Rey on performing: 'Sometimes it seems more important to [her] than other times'

lana-del-rey-getty.jpgThis past Saturday (Jan. 14), Lana Del Rey appeared on "Saturday Night Live" as the musical guest and, well, it didn't go very well. Then to add insult to injury, NBC newsman Brian Williams sent an email to Gawker empire founder Nick Denton criticizing Del Rey's performance.

Lana is now speaking out about her debacle, as she talks about how weird it can be to perform live.

"I find it weird ... sometimes. [It] depends on the day. You know, like, [it] depends on what's going on with my family and everyone around me. 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,'" Del Rey tells MTV."Sometimes it seems more important to me than other times, I don't know."

But as for the "SNL" performance, she says things are cool.

"Things are cool. They always will be, whether the music goes good or not," she says. "Like, I consider being able to sing a luxury, it doesn't run my life, it's not my main focus. I love it, I feel grateful. I'm honored to be on 'SNL' I'm happy to be here, but if I didn't have it, I'd be happy too."
