Voted!

I really want her to win this, she deserves it 100% for all her hard work. I admire her effort. She hasn't really taken a break or slacked off since Mowgli's Road.

Even her lack of major success hasn't put her off giving her fans music videos and loads of interaction. A truly inspirational popstar.

Compared to Lady GaGa & Shakira? MTV sucks sometimes.
Nice interview, altough a bit too girlish for my taste. The Burger King Tour - sounds fun, I hope she visits Sweden, she should considering she's having a hit here now :D

her music is great, loving the album and live she was great also and im sure i will enjoy her gig in november again.

the only downside are those blog posts and tweets about not being understood and all, that can cause more damage then she thinks.

I'm completely obsessed with some of the remixes for her singles:

Oh No! (Active Child remix)
This could be the best song released this whole year!
:o

Shampain (Pictureplane's Deep Dolphin remix)
Discovered this yesterday, the original track sounds like demo against this.

Hollywood (Gonzales remix)
Has much more "charm" then the original and makes me think of this tune from the latest Zelda game:

Marina And The Diamonds - Shampain (Pictureplane's Deep Dolphin Remix)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hkef-QGSa0A

"Slipping away to find a place to die
I wonder when the night will reach it's end - the sleep is not my friend

Drinking shampain, meant for a wedding
Toast to the bride, a fairytale ending
Drinking shampain, a bottle to myself
Savour the taste, of fabricated wealth

But I feel celestial"


The Dolphins!! :cry:

Just noticed:

She looks identical with Kate Bush from 1978-1980! Both looks, and the theatrical performance :o
I had a fantasy, that Marina would go through Kate's discography and be inspired from it.

And after that, use her amazing voice to create some really BIG music!

I know exactly what I want, and who I want to be
I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine
I'm now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy
I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine

I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm only...
I'm only...
I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm only...
I'm only...
I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm only...
I'm only...
I'm only...
I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm only...
I'm only


This is the definition of sadness!
Only what!?

Sex, Yeah leaked - a potential track for the second album. Great message, it's more electronic than her previous album but it's still great.

I cant find that one, but I just listened to another new track called Living Dead - also much more electronic, but not as experimental as the songs from her debut. It seems though that these songs wont end up on the album according to Marina.

It's an OK track, but sounds too "static"!
I'm listening to Sex, Yeah now for the first time though, and this is a VERY GOOD album track!!! :D:D

Nothing is provocative anymore
Even for kids
No room for imagining
Cause everyone's seen everything


And yes, The Family Jewels is one of my favourite songs with her! :)

Marina And The Diamonds singer alerts police after new songs leak Date / Time Venue Town/City Seetickets Viagogo

Marina Diamandis asks fans for information to forward
February 11, 2011


Marina Diamandis of Marina And The Diamonds has claimed that she has contacted the police over the leaking of some of her unfinished new songs.

Writing on her blog at Marinaandthediamonds.com, the singer made a plea for fans to come forward with information to help find the culprit or culprits.

"I have the police involved," she claimed. "So if you know information about the people who are doing this, you can message me. I have waxed lyrical to [record label] Warner about how incredible you are and I have faith in you on this."

She added: "I am asking for you to protect me. I rely on you guys heavily - and transparently - and I need your help. You're the only ones who control whether things stop or spread."

She wrote that the leaks were impinging on her creativity and branded the culprits "grim" and "unworthy".

"The more leaks that happen, the slower I go," she wrote. "As you can imagine, the thought of people invading my privacy and listening to half-assed unfinished songs that I write at 3am on a tour bus does not make me feel too relaxed or creative."

You are the best fans I could have ever dreamed of and wanted to put this above the rubbish below.

Regarding recent leaks.

The new album is not going to be out this year. I don't know when it will be out because I don't know when I will finish it. It could be 1 or 5 years. The more leaks that happen, the slower I go. As you can imagine, the thought of people invading my privacy and listening to half-assed unfinished songs that I write at 3am on a tour bus does not make me feel too relaxed or creative.

I know that the intentions behind listening to leaked songs are innocent. I don't even mind if you listen to them! But just so you know, in doing so, you are now supporting the idea that nobody has the right to basic privacy. And by nobody, that means you too, somewhere down the line, later in your life when you will have forgotten about this blog post.

Don't wanna make anyone feel guilty or moralise, as people are free to do whatever they like at the end of the day, and I will still love you, whatever you like to do! But you need to know that the guys who are leaking my songs are grim & unworthy characters.We are feeding their egos and all the while, they are laughing at both you and I, whilst their sites get attention and they claim "kudos" in hacker forums, as creativity grinds to an anxiety-ridden halt.

When we're listening to "x" leaked song play on Youtube, the song has been sold on to people willing to pay money to spread them & gain revenue in other ways across sites. So, I guess you and I are now endorsing their crappy, shitty lifestyles. I know you support me but it will baffle me if you support people of this nature.

Have read lots of your comments about listening to leaked songs and that it doesn't matter because you'll buy the album regardless. I can see your point. Definitely.. But I still believe that a concept and vision should be completed before one shares it with people. Not in weird, incoherent, diluted scraps. For those of you who were fans before I released TFJ, you know that I do & will share and show you stuff when I'm ready. I mean.. I gave most of my first album away in demos! It is not fair on me to have to worry that every time i put an idea down, it is going to be stolen and then supported for being stolen.

Haven't asked you for anything directly before but I would like to. I am asking for you to protect me. I rely on you guys heavily- and transparently- and I need your help. You're the only ones who control whether things stop or spread. I have the police involved, so if you know information about the people who are doing this, you can message me, if you'd like to. i have waxed lyrical to Warner about how incredible you are and I have faith in you on this.

Not angry, at all.. I guess that is life. But they are going to get caught and I am just asking for basic privacy to work. My album is in the very early stages and will continue to be for a while.

Thank you for what you're doing every day for me and other fans and for what you have given me so far. Am v lucky girl. Whether you remain a fan for an album or for life, I am indebted to each one of you in a different way.

A positive blog coming tomorrow!

Marina x x x
