Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games” put the New York-based songstress on the map, though much of the initial buzz of this “gangsta Nancy Sinatra” wondered if she was a one-off artist or the real deal. Interscope apparently has much faith in Del Rey, as the video for her second single, “Born To Die”, looks like it has the budget of about 15 “Video Games” clips. (The day-rate for two tigers ain’t chump change.) Besides jungle cats, Lana’s vid features a gorgeous church, a tattooed amour, and a fiery crash — did you really think a song called “Born To Die” would end with Lana and her sweetie walking off into the sunset together?
