Lana Del Rey played soccer with kids in Austin before her concert


Think singer Lana Del Rey is all about “Video Games”? Turns out she’s not afraid to kick around the soccer ball, either.

That was bad. Sorry. But here’s the point: Del Rey, who performed at the Frank Erwin Center on Sunday, visited FCBEscola’s Austin soccer school at Circuit of the Americas over the weekend, according to the school’s Twitter account. The singer took to the field with some local children on her “VIP visit.”

Those kids seem like good coaches, too. Pop stars don’t always know how to bend it like Beckham.

People on social media were all about “Young and Beautiful” singer’s turn on the big green.

At her show Sunday night, Del Rey said that she had been hanging out around Austin all week. Did you spot her out and about? Let us know in the comments.
