Lana Del Rey Snarks Back, Via Kristen Wiig (SNL Video)

Lana Del Rey Snarks Back, Via Kristen Wiig (SNL Video)

Channing Tatum did a pretty funny Matthew McConaughey impression in a not-so-funny sketch on SNL, and while he was a fine host overall the show didn’t really belong to him. All those sketches about his early stripper days became very one-note. But when the show turned away from Tatum, it took off. A highlight was Kristen Wiig as Lana Del Rey.

The fake Lana sarcastically apologizes because the world hated everything about her recent SNL appearance, including the fact that she changed her name, something no self-respecting singer would do – except for Sting and Bob Dylan and everyone else who did.

For the night's very best sketch, check out "Newt Gingrich, Moon President" here.
