Blasphemy or art? A little over a month ago, indie singer Lana Del Rey released a music video for “National Anthem” from her second studio album Born to Die. The video presents a revisionist take on the John F. Kennedy years in the White House, until his assassination, told through the eyes of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, IndieWire reports.
The problem may lie in the fact that a black rapper, A$AP Rocky, played JFK. Del Rey, whose real name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, reportedly said this was the most important thing she had ever done. Um, really? JFK played by a rapper? Wow.
