Lana Del Rey's 'National Anthem' Video - Watch Now!

Lana Del Rey channels former First Lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis in her just released “National Anthem” video.

The 26-year-old singer teamed up with rapper A$AP Rocky, who plays President John F. Kennedy in the Anthony Mandler-directed clip.

“Every so often, I top what I’ve done, and this video is definitely the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done,” Lana previously said.

“It’s some cool trippy s—, some real 2015 s—,” Rocky added. “People are gonna get it in like three years, and that’s the whole purpose of it.”

She´s the new Gaga!

# 2

Nah, I actually think she has some talent. She doesn’t just depend on a wacky wardrobe for attention.

# 3

i think this is actually very beautiful.

# 4

Who cares about her?!

# 5

Not sure I like this lady..kind offensive she is using that time to make a video. is she stupid

# 6

it’s nicely done, i think i get it but i think it would’ve been more effective if she was the one who got shot in the end or if no one got shot at all.

# 7

Video of the year for sure!

# 8

It’s channeling JFK’s life and assassination–she’s Jackie O, A$AP is John.
JFK has to be the one who gets shot.

What will we “get” in 2015?

I really, really like Lana Del Rey, but I think this video is extremely distasteful. Don’t mean to sound uptight–I enjoy powerful, thought-provoking imagery, but to me, this falls under crass.

“Blurring the lines between the real and the fake”

Good style, perfect performance, beautiful colors. But I don’t believe in that story, such a fake in comparison with the idea they wanted to show

Honestly, I don’t care if she had plastic surgeries, who she’s friends with or how she became famous. It’s none of my business. I just absolutely love her music and her voice is so hypnotizing I could just listen to her all the time. That’s what matters and she deserves do be praised for her music not being critisized for the way she leads her life.

VERY beautiful girl!

beautiful !
And damn the kids are so adorrrrbs

i don’t want to sound dumb but i’m kinda scared about what that guy said.. i mean, what will happen in 2015? pretty weird thing to say..


i know what it’s channeling, i personally think “channeling” a president’s assassination for the sake of art is in poor taste. that’s why i suggested a different route.

I actually really like this video and love the song


love this video. and the poetry in the end is just so beautiful. do you know where i can find the it written?

@dona: google is your friend

@XYZ: it’s 2012 you moron “race-mixing” isn’t something controversial… people are just people, stop living in the 60′s.

Wow I really liked that. But seriously, where is the Summertime Sadness video. That is her best song. Maybe she’ll release it at the end of summer? That would be a little lame though. Anyways, she looks so pretty in this video!

@phyllidia: perfectly said my friend.

I really liked it. It made me curious to know the JAcki O story for real. I know it is based on JFK and real life but it was sad to see a beautiful love shattered and I am not sure if it was loosely based on JFK Jackie O or if that was their love story too.

Here you go!

“And I remember when I met him, it was so clear that he was the only one for me. We both knew it, right away. And as the years went on, things got more difficult, we were faced with more challenges. I begged him to stay, try to remember what we had in the beginning. He was charismatic, magnetic, electric – and everybody knew it. When he walked in, every woman’s head turned, everyone stood up to talk to him. He was like this hybrid, this mix of a man who couldn’t contain himself. I always got the sense that he became torn between being a good person and missing out on all of the opportunities that life could offer a man as magnificent as him. And in that way… I understood him. And I loved him. I loved him, I loved him, I loved him. And I still love him. I love him.”

her plastic face looks so fake (fishlips, barbienose), even in the thumbnails. very sad :(

the video is very long…but i liked it while i’m not a fan.
