Marina and the Diamonds

Marina Lambrini Diamandis (born 10 October 1985), better known by her stage name Marina and the Diamonds, is a Greek-Welsh singer-songwriter. She rose to fame after reaching number two on the BBC Sound of 2010 poll list, coming second to Ellie Goulding. After releasing one private extended play, Diamandis released her second extended play, The Crown Jewels EP, with help from Neon Gold Records in 2009. Now signed to 679 Recordings, she released her debut full-length studio album,The Family Jewels, in 2010. Diamandis will be releasing her third extended play, The American Jewels EP, on 23 March, 2010.

Her eponymous name “Marina and the Diamonds” consists of Diamandis’ first name and the translation of her surname which means “Diamonds” in Greek. “The Diamonds” refers to Diamandis’ fans but is commonly mistaken for her backing band (similar to Florence and the Machine). She also explains on her MySpace page “I’m Marina. You are the diamonds.”

    I LOVE HER! my friend introduced me to her a month or so ago, the family jewels (newest album) is soooo fabulous. I love “numb,” “obsessions,” and “hollywood.”
    Thanks for posting!

    I saw her perfume last year in July. She’s amazing live! I only wished she’d put “Seventeen” on her album, it’s such a good song.

    I think she is interesting but I won’t support her just because she is female. As a feminist I don’t believe women should demand parity with men and then single themselves out for special treatment when it suits us . Equality is a two – way street , it is not as though you would not like a male artist as much just because he has a penis !
