Before Lana Del Rey was pop's most controversially loved and hated stars she was Lizzy Grant, another beautiful girl trying to make it in show biz. A video of Grant performing at the Variety Box in New York on June 8, 2009 is getting some renewed traction online. The user who uploaded the video on Nov. 9, 2010 , TheMissyMoser, says the show was one of the first she helped produce for Lizzy.
Dressed in a modest tee and jeans, Grant performs two original compositions. “Yayo,” is the first song, followed by “Hundred Dollar Bill.” No doubt helped by the recent rise of Del Rey, the video has more than 500,000 views, many of which came in the first two months of 2012.
