American singer Lana del Rey made her Glastonbury debut on Saturday after coming under intense scrutiny following a controversial interview in which she wished "she was dead".
The singer belted out some her hit songs from her album Born to Die and the newly released Ultraviolence , but still managed to upset some viewers for smoking on the Pyramid stage at Worthy Farm.
Cigarette in hand, Del Rey performed her Ultraviolence single "West Coast", "Summertime Sadness", "Body Electric", "Born to Die", "National Anthem", "Ride" and "Blue Jeans" as well as her breakthrough track, "Video Games", and "Young & Beautiful", which featured on the soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann's adaption of The Great Gatsby.
Del Rey was recently forced to defend a series of comments in which she described her life as one "f***ed movie" and was quoted as saying "I wish I was dead already".
