Daniel Radcliffe Defends Lana Del Rey SNL Performance

by at .

Harry Potter isn't exactly a superhero, but he's come to the rescue of Lana Del Rey.

The singer has been torn to shreds since her debut Saturday Night Live performance (below), as numerous critics have pointed to her mumbling and awkward demeanor as clear signs this artist is not ready for primetime.

But Daniel Radcliffe, who hosted the SNL episode in question, told the British press this week "it was unfortunate that people seemed to turn on her so quickly," adding:

“I also think people are making it about things other than the performance. 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.”

It should be interesting to see how sales go for Lana’s debut album, "Born to Die," which comes out on January 31.
