7.16.12 - New Music - Lana Del Rey and A$AP Rocky
God, I’m so over this bitch.
In the video (which I literally CAN’T believe actually recreates JFK’s assassination), Lana shows us that visually, she wasn’t made for this time. While she definitely doesn’t have the grace, poise, or even looks that Jackie O did, I think she would have done spectacularly in one of the old Bond films. She plays the 60’s housewife/Nantucketer very well, and she looks pretty good.
No one give her a medal for her acting chops though. Or, for that matter, for her singing.
The chorus of this song is alright, and it almost saves it. Almost. But then that ending comes in and drags on, with Lana babbling about God knows what and you just kind of want the whole thing to end. Hence why I said “almost”.
But hey, A$AP Rocky is in there doing…nothing. He’s just there being JFK. Only black, and with weird hair. Oh, and they have mixed race babies, how darling.
As you can tell, I’m not really a fan, but if you are, the song (her fifth single off ‘Born To Die’) is available now.
