Daniel Radcliffe Defends Lana Del Rey

Daniel Radcliffe Defends Lana Del Rey

Daniel Radcliffe premieres his new movie The Woman in Black on Thursday (January 19) in Munich, Germany at Hotel Bayerischer Hof.

The 22-year-old British actor, who hosted Saturday Night Live last weekend, defended the episode’s musical guest Lana Del Rey.

“It was unfortunate that people seemed to turn on her so quickly,” Daniel said at the BAFTA awards nominations.

“I also think people are making it about things other than the performance,” he continued. “If you read what people are saying about her online, it’s all about her past and her family, and stuff that’s nobody else’s business.”

Daniel is set to co-host Live! With Kelly January 31. Along with host, Kelly Ripa, he will interview The Vow‘s Rachel McAdams.

    Daniel, I’m a fan, but I disagree. People were DISAPPOINTED in her (ie Me) especially if you were a fan of hers before the performance. I’m still a fan, but she really needs to work on her nerves or vocals or both. I expected more out of her. As for her family business, it’s fair game. You want to be in this business, be ready for people to judge you if they think you are lying or not being honest about your past.

    Go Daniel i’m so happy for him he is doing big things since the end of harry potter he was hilarious on snl and i can’t wait to see him co host with kelly ripa so impressed with this kid no wonder i was obsessed with him when i was 10 years old lol

  • sceptic

    When you have that much hype, and if you heard her songs on YouTube BEFORE the performance, everyone’s expectations were high, but the fact is, the performance was TERRIBLE. I also was disappointed. Hopefully she’ll get better.

    I agree with Bobo and Sceptic; people have the right to judge her family business especially when her “family business” is the only reason she was on SNL. I know her image is completely contrived but I still like her music. I saw her at Mod Club in Toronto months ago; wasn’t great but wasn’t as awful as her SNL performance.

  • n

    Ive seen her other performances and they have been much better than the SNL ones. I just put it down to the fact that she was nervous. She seems quite shy in interviews.

  • Mlllllle

    Give them some sh…t, some Britney, Some Rihanna or Katy Vocoder Perry.

    People don’t have any idea of what is a real voice, with real lyrics.
    A voice can change, especially when the singer have the respect to play in live.
    She can be stressed, she can be sicked, or very shy.

    Wake Up, real voices don’t come from a computer.

  • calla

    She was horrible. Hard to sit through. I think she should give up. Her true image failed, then her manufactured image failed to distract people from her awful voice as well. Nice for him to be all PC about it, but she still is a terrible singer.

    Looks like Dark Shadows forgot to take his meds…

    dan is so cute.

  • speaktruth

    Actually no, Dan. I didn’t know any of her backstory. I just know that she sucked ASS on SNL. I feel she’s acting very immaturely with the criticism. Yes, it would hurt if people said that about me. However, I didn’t choose to have such a public career like she did. She seems to think that just because she showed up that that was good enough. No matter on preparation, performance, hard work, etc. Over it. Over her.

  • Dana

    Am I the only one who thinks he looks like young Hugh Jackman? LOL. I mean, look at his jaws and his smile, so Jackman.
