Lana Del Rey has taken her campy sadness to new heights with the seaside music video for her new single “High By the Beach.”
In the clip, Del Rey spots a helicopter hovering above her lavish beach mansion. She then begins restlessly moping around her sparse home, throwing herself onto her bed and listlessly flipping through a magazine. The helicopter then flies closer to the home and stays near her window. In the helicopter is a man with a camera, shooting photos of the singer.
After sadly posing for a few wind-blown photos, Del Rey then runs outside to the beach and pulls a large guitar case from beneath the rocks. She opens the case on her balcony to reveal a rusty machine gun and proceeds to shoot down the helicopter.
