Marina and the Diamonds: Now Serving Fresh FROOT

Marina and the Diamonds

Today (March 16th) marks the official release of Marina and the Diamond's third studio album—FROOT—the highly-anticipated follow up to 2012's Electra Heart. Some people don't care for Marina's sophomore effort ... those people seriously don't know what they're talking about. Marina's 2010 debut album, The Family Jewels, still wears the crown but FROOT and Electra Heart are equally good. This time around Marina worked with only one MORE

Goodbye ♡ Electra Heart ♡

Marina and the Diamonds

We've come to the end of an era! Marina and the Diamonds posted the very last video from her whole Electra Heart adventure, two years to the date from when she posted the first part, "Fear & Loathing." The video is appropriately titled "Electra Heart" and features clips from the previous ten archetypes and by the end Marina wipes away the small black heart tattoo on her cheek. I'm seriously going to miss Electra Heart, it has been an amazing ride MORE

Marina and the Diamonds drops ♡ “LIES” ♡ video!

Marina and the Diamonds "Lies"

Oh happy day! My girl Marina and the Diamonds surprised us this morning with a brand-new music video for "Lies," which is one of the best cuts off her incredible album, Electra Heart. It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Marina and she does not disappoint with this stripped down video, she looks amazing sans makeup! Besides the video, Marina is busy working on a secret project called Eleven Diamonds, which I believe is going to be a collection MORE

Exclusive: Marina and the Diamonds chats w/ PopBytes

Marina and the Diamonds

This past weekend I had the chance to sit down with Welsh singer/songwriter Marina and the Diamonds right before her much buzzed about show at Los Angeles' Shrine Expo Hall. I interviewed her back in 2010 (watch it here in case you missed it) and since then she has become wildly popular and a bonafide (tongue-in-cheek) popstar all on her own terms. Three short years ago Marina played the Troubadour with a couple of hundred fans, Saturday night MORE

Marina and the Diamonds + Charli XCX = Just Desserts

Marina and the Diamonds and Charli XCX "Just Desserts"

I've knocked Charli XCX down a few times, but I'm slowly starting to come around, and I must admit her debut album True Romance (iTunes) is actually quite decent. Now she's joined forces with one of my favorite people ever, Marina and the Diamonds, on a tasty new duet called "Just Desserts," which you can listen to below and download it here for free! The girls are also heading out on a North American tour together, dates are listed below, I'll MORE

Marina and the Diamonds’ ♡ “State of Dreaming” ♡

Marina and the Diamonds "State Of Dreaming"

Oh this is exactly what I needed, a new music video from the lovely Marina and the Diamonds. It's for "State of Dreaming," one of the best cuts from her stellar album (and my top favorite album from 2012), Electra Heart. I've been very down lately, you might have heard on Facebook or Twitter, one of my cats, Charlie, is severely anemic and battling for his life, even requiring an emergency blood transfusion a few days ago which unfortunately cost MORE

Marina and the Diamonds "How To Be A Heartbreaker"

Oh happy day! First a hot new video from Christina Aguilera, and now one from Marina and the Diamonds! It's for "How To Be A Heartbreaker," which was a track exclusive to the US release of Electra Heart. The song is fantastic, Marina looks amazing and there's a ton of hot, half-naked and wet guys, what more could we ask for? If you haven't had a chance to listen to Marina's latest album, do not miss out, it's definitely going to be my choice for MORE

Marina and the Diamonds plays NYC rooftop!

Marina and the Diamonds

This past Monday night Marina and the Diamonds played a private showcase on the rooftop of the Mondrian Hotel in SoHo to celebrate her sophomore release "Electra Heart." The hotel stands tall between the Canal subway stop where every storefront is written in Chinese, mixed with your American landmarks like Subway and Burger King and one of the best shopping districts in New York City. After doing my own shopping at the British Topman, I made my MORE

Marina and the Diamonds

♡ I'm so behind on this one, yet I knew I couldn't miss the chance to post about Marina and the Diamonds' show here in Los Angeles back on July 10th. It was such a spectacular evening all around, everyone knows how much I adore Marina, this was my fourth time seeing her live! She was fantastic as per usual, the crowd ate up everything she did on stage, the energy was insane. It also happened to be the first night of her US tour, everyone was MORE

Last night here in Los Angeles was the first US date of Marina and the Diamonds' Lonely Hearts Club tour, and it was seriously fantastic on so many levels, I even got to chat with Marina for a bit at the after party. I'll be doing a proper review on the show complete with pictures and video, but for now please enjoy her latest single "How To Be A Heartbreaker"! The track appears only on the US version of her album Electra Heart which just dropped MORE

I can't even begin to talk about the sheer musical brilliance of Marina and the Diamonds! She's just the most amazing thing ever, you must watch her new music video for "Power & Control," the second single off Electra Heart!

♡ Primadonna ♡ / Marina and the Diamonds

Marina and the Diamonds - Primadonna

Primadonna is finally here! It's the official lead single from Marina and the Diamonds' upcoming sophomore effort, Electra Heart, due out at the end of April. I think this is a totally stellar track (produced by Dr. Luke), I simply couldn't be more excited for her album to drop! The video is brilliant as well, chock full of random stuff (turtles, dogs, bikes, pizza, trashy romance novels), plus Marina looks absolutely gorgeous, I can't get enough MORE
