Lana Del Rey – National Anthem

[wide][/wide] Lana Del Rey released the video for “National Anthem,” starring herself and Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky. The video features Rocky as John F. Kennedy and Lana Del Rey as some sort of Jackie Kennedy/Marilyn Monroe hybrid. Through good performances and gorgeous Super-8 cinematography with a complete indifference to anything related to governing, the video does an amazingly nice job depicting Lana Del Rey and Rocky as avatars of glamorous, doomed romanticism.
