Editor's Pick

Love her or hate her, Lana Del Rey knows how to act. The singer plays both Marilyn and Jackie in her latest video, 'National Anthem.' The seven minute video begins with Del Rey as Marilyn Monroe (albeit with her own dark hair) singing 'Happy Birthday Mr. President' to John F. Kennedy, played by rapper A$AP Rocky. Then, she transforms into the ladylike, graceful Jackie Kennedy. Through a series of filtered, Instagram-like shots, the couple's beautiful and ultimately heartbreaking story is told.
