Yeah, fine, she can sing, but Marina Diamandis’ malformed, misshapen visage is just a step too far for audiences to withstand, says her label, Atlantic, who has balked at releasing a video for her track “How to be a Heartbreaker.” The frightfully grizzled Diamandis, who’s managed to somehow overcome the music industry’s unhealthy obsession with beauty with the thankfully invisible sound patterns of the music released under the moniker Marina and the Diamonds up until this point, perhaps through some sort of mutant-strength as of yet not understood by science, has said the label won’t release the video until she goes back in the studio for overdubs to auto-tune her repugnant countenance. Also to shave off her horns.
“So, someone at my record label wont let me release the video bc I look ugly in it apparently + we need more $ / time to paint out ugly parts,” she tweeted (via NME) “The video will be out end of the week. If not, I am happy to leak the ‘minger’ version for my fans.”
I’m frankly surprised that the loathsome creature managed to manipulate her crab-clawed digits into the correct patterns that would enable her to operate a keyboard of some sort. Perhaps they’ve got some special insectoid-oxen-mutant interface on the iPhones in the UK where she’s from that we don’t know about yet over here?
Listen the to track below, but if you’ve eaten recently you may want to simply let the song play in the background without gazing into the Gorgon-like, unforgiving gaze of this wretched beast.
