Lana Del Rey is not an artist I play very often. Her music can be pretty laidback, but I usually also find it to be a bit moody, and that’s not always something I’m into. You know how there’s a time and a place for everything.
But I’d heard about her latest, 10 minutes long, video, so I was very curious to see “Freak”. When I hear that an artist made a long video, I get flashbacks to Michael Jackson’s lengthy videos in the 80s. When those came out, it was a real event. When Taylor Swift did it, recently, it was also a real event, but Lana Del Rey pretty much just made a dual video.
