"And I remember when I met him, it was so clear that he was the only one for me. We both knew it, right away. And as the years went on, things got more difficult - we were faced with more challenges.

I begged him to stay. Try to remember what we had at the beginning.

He was charismatic, magnetic, electric and everybody knew it. When he walked in every woman’s head turned, everyone stood up to talk to him. He was like this hybrid, this mix of a man who couldn’t contain himself. I always got the sense that he became torn between being a good person and missing out on all of the opportunities that life could offer a man as magnificent as him.

And in that way I understood him and I loved him. I loved him, I loved him, I loved him.

And I still love him. I love him."

Beautiful, beautiful, flawless. I cried at the end. Love her so much ♥

It's one of her best, I think. The monologue at the end, when she says "I understood him. And I loved him, I loved him, I loved him, I loved him" makes me cry. So beautiful.

heres the thing. I like it but i dislike it. And i have been trying to pinpoint what it is that I dislike cause i don't like hating on something without a reason. Anyway I think I've worked it out. Whilst I like the song, love the beginning and think the aesthetic and concept of the video is interesting and awesome........ it feels insincere to me. Thats the best word i can come up with for it. And I think I'm gonna put it all on Lana - beautiful young lady with a sometimes-awesome voice.... but she can't act for shit, i just don't believe what she is singing about. To me it just looks like she is trying to look like she's in love, but she's more interested in whether she looks pretty in her retro clothes. So yeah, thats what i mean when i say it seems insincere. I would be interested to know what you think on it. :)

p.s. i just want to eat up that "daughter" that gets featured a lot. she is goddamn gorgeous!

The song was about money, in the end, so there was this sense of... I don't know what you'd call it, to the music video. Maybe insincerity? Maybe that is the right word. Like it did seem too slick and a little unrealistic, but at the same time the video was reflecting the song. But I honestly really enjoyed it. I found it really pretty and beautifully filmed, and even though I'm getting sick of the whole "life viewed through Instagram thing" that Lana's been doing lately, I did like this clip.
I don't know. I think you know by now that I'm a bit of a Lana stan, so I love everything she does! I actually liked her acting! I found the monologue at the end to be the best part... the way she delivered it. I don't know. Ha. I keep saying that a lot "I don't know". I guess I don't really. I need to watch it another million or so times so I can decide for real lol.

AND YES. That little girl was so adorable! All the kids were, to be honest.

HAhahahahahaha that was exactly what I was thinking as I watching. I was thinking "gee Lana must love Instagram". And yes I still liked the song and the general concept of the video. I just feel like Lana missed the target a bit with her acting (except in the beginning, that performance as a pseudo-Marylin was amazing, her voice is lovely). And yeah i liked the monologue at the end too and especially how she delivered it. Do you know if that is original? Or is she quoting a speech/letter/statement someone else said??

naw, sorry to make you use your grumpy-lana icon. cheer up love. ;)

Ahaha the icon just seemed appropriate. No hard feelings lol! I actually just love that icon. I think she looks so adorable when she's making that grumpy face :)

I've never actually used Instagram, I can't wrap my head around it or why it's so popular. Tumblr is just being bombarded with all these instagram photos lately, it's driving me nuts!

Those were my favourite parts - her as marilyn (which I thought was spot on) and then of course the monologue. I think she wrote it. She writes a lot, other than songs I mean. Or so I've heard. Everytime she starts saying "And I loved him, I loved him" I want to cry, because it just sounds so sincere.

I dont have an iphone so i've never used instagram either. but lots of my friends use it on facebook. its all the rage.

I did a quick bit of googling but i cant seem to find out whether Lana wrote the monologue or is quoting. i think it would be more gorgeous if she were really quoting Jackie O but ah well, who knows.
