"I was a singer. Not a very popular one," Del Rey says during the video's three-minute prologue, which alludes to the fact that her character might be a prostitute. "I once had dreams of becoming a beautiful poet. But, upon an unfortunate series of events, saw those dreams dashed and divided like a million stars in the night sky that I wished on, over and over again, sparkling and broken."
"I was always an unusual girl," Del Rey says.
What follows is a series of striking images: Del Rey wrapped in an American flag; Del Rey having sex with an old man on a pinball machine; Del Rey riding a motorcycle with bunch of guys who you might find at next year's Sturgis Festival; Del Rey firing a gun.
"I'm tired of feeling like I'm fucking crazy," Del Rey croons, before putting on a Native American headdress.
To be specific, she appears in a headdress at about the 7:04 mark and continues with it until the 8:00 mark. She's at a biker camp at night, where she sits on a motorcycle, waves a gun and some sort of sticks, and carouses with a biker.
She sings these lyrics as she points the gun at her head:
I'm tired of driving 'til I see stars in my eyes
I look up to hear myself saying,
"Baby, too much I strive, I just ride."
A Facebook image suggests what Indians think of this:
