I’ve never really seen the appeal of Lana Del Rey, her or her music. But the more I’m hearing this on MTV the more I like it.
Her videos always showcase a certain coolness and are always very stylish, with this one having a vintage glam feel. I love the long poker straight hair and beehive with headband, so Fifties.
The video was directed by Anthony Mandler. It starts with Lana doing a reenactment of Marilyn Monroe’s “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” before moving to the audience to see rapper A$AP Rocky who then takes on the role of President Kennedy. All before the music kicks in, so bear with it.
“Money is the Anthem of Success so put on your mascara and your party dress” Brilliant.
What do you think of Lana Del Rey and this National Anthem?
