Lana Del Rey Tries To Be Jackie Kennedy

A$AP Rocky is everywhere. Latest evidence: his performance in Lana Del Rey’s new eight-minute “National Anthem” video. As promised, Rocky is the JFK to Lana’s Jackie — who spends a lot of time hiding in the Hyannis Port camellia bushes — and her Marilyn, who opens the video with a more-than-passable “Happy Birthday, Mr. President.” The whole video is run through an Instagram filter, in case you forget where you are (a Lana Del Rey video), and there’s an assassination reenactment toward the end that could have stayed on the cutting-room floor.
