On her blog, comedian and laugh-track sitcom star Whitney Cummings weighs in on The Musical Controversy of Our Time, Ms. Lana Del Rey and, specifically, her instantly infamous performance on Saturday Night Live:

I can't really judge her performance. I am not qualified to do that since I'm very forgiving of performers because performing is FUCKING HARD. It takes a long time to get good, and even when you are good, you can be challenged by new venues and being televised, and cameras, and the uhā€¦fear and terror of being slammed by critics and bloggers, plus if you are a woman you also get fashion criticism and if you're a pretty woman you're accused of having plastic surgery and if you're not you're "busted" and people blog about how they don't want to fuck youā€¦it's not ideal.
