We all know by now that Lizzy Grant, AKA Lana Del Rey, is an absolute Goddess. I mean, come on, look at this:
Like…THAT’S JUST NOT NORMAL. Now, I must admit: after seeing Lana’s past couple of videos, I really didn’t think she could do much better. No one can deny that Queen Lana has been on a roll lately, and the fear that she may have “peaked” already did pop into my mind more than once.
I WAS WRONG.
In the just-released video for “Young And Beautiful,” off the highly-anticipated Baz Luhrmann adaption of The Great Gatsby, Lana proves that she is here to stay, seranading an entire orchestra with her hypnotic on-key vocals and lost-love persona. She seems to channel another Luhrmann movie dame, Satine from 2001’s critically acclaimed “Moulin Rouge,” clad in a relatively conservative black gown and asking the viewer something we’ve all wondered about:
“Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?”
You “know we will” ALWAYS love you, Lana, keep on crooning!
