Lana Del Rey Wears a Nightgown, Blows Up a Helicopter in “High By the Beach” Video

In case it wasn’t clear from the lyrics of her recently released song, Lana Del Rey really wants to get high by the beach. But according to her new video, she also really wants to shoot a fireball at a paparazzo’s helicopter. The video, released today, is a lot like the song itself—it starts off at once ominous and dejected, with a sad Lana Del Rey swaying around an empty house as a helicopter looms overhead, seemingly with a photographer inside it. But, like the song, the video takes a dark turn. Right as she sings “Lights, camera action,” she runs outside and eventually blows up the aircraft. Just another Saturday morning. Paparazzi, take note: She’s got great aim.
