Pop newcomer Lana Del Rey has been been a polarizing force since hitting the scene.
Indeed, while hailed by some sects, the 25 year old has attracted mounting critique – particularly as pertains her live performances.
Speaking to Fuse recently, the New York native gave her own 2 cents on her performing ability; confessing: “I am a studio singer”.
Peep the interview after the jump…
Kudos to Lana for keeping it real about something many an artist shy away from. She is an admitted studio singer. Does that need to change to ensure we’re still talking about her 5 years down the line? Of course. However, there’s something to be said for knowing your flaws – and being frank about them. And ironically very little that can be said, as she’s essentially admitting it herself.
It also helps that her artistry soars in other aspects (see: songwriting, all-round “creative”). Something other studio singers, ala the Rihanna‘s of the world, can’t claim they have in their arsenal.
Lana Del Rey’s debut LP ‘Born To Die’ hits stores on January 27th.
