Despite the fact that her live performance was dubbed one of the most catastrophic disasters in SNL history, we're actually loving Lana Del Rey's first album, and her new song "Carmen" is hauntingly beautiful.
The new single from her album, Born To Die, tells the story of a drug-addicted teen streetwalker, and it's a song close to the singer's heart. Del Rey shared the video via Twitter, with the caption: "Made you something. CARMEN explains everything."
The video features old movie clippings and current behind the scenes footage, and tells the story of a 17-year-old who is suffering substance abuse. The video is set in New York where she grew up, and shows a young woman dancing in a strip club, while other scenes feature the molecular structure of the drug methamphetamine – aka meth - while women dance on poles at a strip club.
