'High By The Beach,' Or Why Do You Not Have Lana Del Rey's Life
The empty beach house is Del Rey's chiffon-draped canvas, as she squints at the ocean, tightens her nighty in a mirror, rolls on a bed, flips through a celebrity magazine and then shoots a helicopter with an anti-aircraft gun as the dude inside of it takes her picture.
There is a message there. There is subdued worry on her face -- it's not all candy and lattes in Del Rey's world.
The message is: Lana's in the danger zone.
