"I’ve been asking to play on Jools Holland for years to no avail & now that fool invites Lana Del Rey instead. Yo, you fucked up Jools."
— Girls frontman Christopher Owens is not happy that Lana Del Rey got to perform on "Later With Jools Holland" before he did.
"As I was writing ‘Love Like a River’, I could hear Beyoncé singing it, and it was beautiful. If she would do it, it would be a fucking number one hit, I guarantee you. But she’ll never speak to me, and she’ll never do it. She doesn’t know I exist."
