Lana Del Rey Cancels Tour in Light of SNL Disaster

by at . Comments

Lana Del Rey may not have put on the worst musical performance in Saturday Night Live history, but she is definitely living through the worst fallout.

Following her appearance on the program (below) a few weeks ago, an email written by NBC anchor Brian Williams was leaked which referred to its as "one of the worst outings" ever on the sketch series, while many celebrities bashed Del Rey on Twitter.

Now, sources tell The New York Post that management has decided to cancel a tour Del Rey had lined up to promote her debut album, "Born to Die."

“They figure it allows time for her to clear her head, then go back to selling tickets," an insider says. "More importantly, they figure, the extra time gives them more distance from SNL."

This past Saturday, Kristen Wiig both mocked Del Rey and sort of made fun of those who went over the top in their criticism of the artist.

A rep for label Interscope, meanwhile, told The Post:

“Interscope had nothing to do with booking or postponing a tour. Jimmy [Iovine] is excited and thankful that Lana is performing at a Grammy event in his honor this week."
