Lana Del Rey's "Ultraviolence" Video: Wedding Dresses and Finger Sucking

by Justin Moran

Never one to stray from her nostalgic fantasies and grainy daydreams, Lana Del Rey's new video for the title track off her latest album, Ultraviolence, follows the heartbroken songstress in a wedding dress, as she walks through a lush garden to an eerie, empty church. The fuzzy clip is captured by a faceless observer, whose presence is only made known when he reaches his finger out for Lana to uncomfortably lick -- it's a cringe-worthy interaction that falls way short of anything romantic. There's also a bizarre scene when Lana takes a break from her stroll to the alter to peel an orange and eat each slice slowly and, of course, seductively. The head-scratching moment is followed by more finger sucking, signature vintage leaky lights and Lana switching things up with the Spanglish lyric, "Yo soy la princesa, comprende mis white lines." Comprende mis white lines? Okay, Lana.
