"Stop taking the bait, you clowns. Saturday Night Live knows people were watching last weekend’s episode for the cute guy in He’s Not That Into You, not for the band that gets mad shout-outs from [MUSIC BLOG NAME REDACTED]. So how does SNL get extra free press from music bloggers? By making those bands’ performances worthy of comment from the snarky post-Gawker cyberworld, where you don’t get mad traffic for 'Oh, Spoon was just so darn good on Letterman! I wanna cuddle Britt Daniel in a Snuggie!' You get traffic for 'The sound on SNL was so bad that I hope everyone in 30 Rockefeller gets a hand-engraved envelope full of anthrax and syphilis and farts.'" →

Was last night’s Saturday Night Live performance by Lana Del Rey just another link in her #trollgaze chain leading up to her album’s release? I’m just saying, there are still a whole two weeks of backlash left before the damn thing comes out!
