I think I’ll leave it to my buddy Carles at Hipster Runoff to describe Lana Del Rey’s new video for “National Anthem,” in which she plays Jackie O to A$AP Rocky’s JFK.

Her video for “National Anthem” is this whole vintage John F. Kennedy + Jackie O tribute piece. She plays into the cliche of singing “Happy Birthday Mr. President” in a Bettie Boop voice at the beginning, then prances around like Then she wears tons of ‘Jackie O esque’ fashions and does WASPy shit for the whole video, while she begs for adoration in the form of verbal and material reaffirmation.

A$AP Rocky is all like, “Yeah nigga, I be on those white women, gettin my JFK on, swaggin on that creaming Jackie O pussie.” They created even halfie children.

Yep, that pretty much sums it up.
