As I blogged yesterday (post below this) Lana Del Rey “National Anthem” video will feature her as Jackie O and actor, not rapper A$AP Rocky as JFK. There’s a little twist at the beginning of the video she is doing the famous Marilyn Monroe “Happy Birthday Mr President”. Is she playing the roll of both Jackie and Marilyn?
The video is amazing shot and directed by Anthony Mandler. I loved the vintage look and color correction of the video. The video felt very cinamtic to me watching it full screen with headphones. Fan of Lana Del Rey or not this is a great music video that was well captured by Mandler.
Here’s the 4 minute trailer for Lana Del Ray’s “National Anthem”. The first look at the rumored JFK (A$AP) and Jackie O (Lana Del Rey) video. The video is directed by the music video guru Anthony Mandler.

I love all of Bourdain’s shows, for the fact that he keeps it real. He never holds back and in this 15 minute tour of NYC it’s more of the same (swearing, meat, and booze). For more Vice Munchies click here.

He starts us off with amazing cured meats and cheese at Salumeria Rosi before heading to the distinguished Wakamba cocktail lounge. After a few beers to cleanse the palate, we end the night with one of the best pieces of meat we’ve ever had at Bourdain’s old base of operations, Brasserie Les Halles.” via youtube
