Lana Del Rey Contemplates Happiness, In Illustrated Form
Jena Ardell

Lana Del Rey debuted her music video for "Ultraviolence" on Noisey this week. The video features Del Rey as a makeshift bride and an ambiguous male whose fingers she sucks. Del Rey sucking on someone's finger didn't surprise us; what surprised us most was Del Rey eating an orange because orange is a happy color and this clashes with her troubled rebel soul, which we imagine is full of cigarette-colored tar and roses painted black. The vintage ambiance of the video echoes the pre-fame style of Del Rey's older music videos, which she shot and edited herself.

The songstress stirred the internet when she professed, "I wish I was dead already" in an interview with The Guardian in June. Here's what Little Miss Old Hollywood Sunshine had to say about her f-ed up life, critics, and what makes her happy.
