Lana Del Rey Lana Del Reys the Hell Out of Her New ‘High By the Beach’ Video

+

Lana Del Rey has released her video for “High By the Beach,” and, as you might expect, it’s a lovelorn, breathy slice of Californianicity in which she flops on a bed and wanders aimlessly around a gorgeous beachside home, all while being pestered by a helicopter trying to take her picture. So far nothing too crazy, you might be thinking, but hold on a second, because it’s not until the end of the clip that we reach peak Del Rey. The singer runs down to the beach, retrieves a guitar case, and produces from it a bazooka of some kind, with which she promptly dispatches the hovering paps in a fiery explosion. Is it a metaphor of some kind? We may never know.
