On January 25 Marina has attended her first event of this year, wearing a beautiful leo-print top with a black skirt and her famous Roy-Lichtenstein-heels. Take a look at a first picture by clicking on the banner above!
On December 8 Marina performed at the Other Voices Festival (click here to view pictures), but videos of her performance have never been released, because they were set to be broadcasted on TV first. Seems like this did happen now, watch the newly released performance of “Shampain” below.
What?! Again scans?! The answer is simple — yes. We’ve been uploading tons of scans the past days thanks to Fats and this time it’s an article of Stella Magazine, that does not only has Marina on its cover, it also features two photos of her as a child and a new photoshoot picture here. Take a look at them, the interview is really interesting, too!
Yesterday Marina spoke with WalesOnline about success. She said:
“I didn’t even listen to any music until I was about 19, really. I just wanted to be famous. But I didn’t say it to anyone because I was really embarrassed at the thought.”
She applied herself academically – by her own admittance in a “hardcore” fashion.
“With my GCSEs I was up at 2am everyday and I would study until 7am, go to school then come back and do some more,” Diamandis told a London Sunday newspaper.
When she was 16, Marina left the village of Pandy in Monmouthshire to live with her father in Athens, where she took the International Baccalaureate. (more…)
The Mail on Sunday features a small picture and text about Marina, putting her into the “Princesses of Pop” category at the Posh List. Fats sent us the scan and you can take a look at it in the gallery!
Click on the banner to browse through scans of last year’s British Vogue, which featured an article about the “In Club”, to which Marina of course belongs! Take a look, though they are quite small, they’re nice.
Thanks to The Diamonds we’ve got a new photoshoot picture from last year. It seems to be from a session that was unknown until now, view it by clicking on the banner above!
Katy Perry has recently announced on Facebook that she’ll be touring through North America in Summer. The multiple Grammy nominee took to “Facebook Live,” the official streaming channel for the social network site, at their Palo Alto headquarters to announce her upcoming “California Dreams 2011” world tour Wednesday afternoon.
For openers, Perry said she will be joined by Robyn as well as Marina and the Diamonds on select dates in the U.S., and Yelle and Calvin Harris will support her on the U.K. leg of the trek, which will draw on material from her hit-filled sophomore disc, “Teenage Dream.”
“It’s going to be super girl power. If you come to the tour, you’ll probably start menstruating,” she joked on the webcast. “It’s going to be amazing. I really believe in this tour.”
Check out the dates after the jump. (more…)
