The 'Blue Jeans' singer tries to give hints at how she grew up in the Big Apple by mixing new and old footage in the newly-released music video.
Lana Del Rey releases a new music video. In the clip created to support her latest single "Carmen", the internet meme compiles clippings of new and old footage that "explains everything." Some of them include her riding on the backseat of a motorcycle with a young boy and the others show a young stripper working her body around a pole.
"Carmen" is taken from Del Rey's first major-label album "Born to Die", which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard Hot 200. The song narrates the lifestyle of Hollywood party girls like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.
"The album is a tribute to living life on the wild side. I'm sort of kidding because I'm not that wild any more... I used to drink a lot. Too much," she once said. "I haven't had a drink for seven years now."
