Marina and the Diamonds singer Marina Diamantis has revealed how pleased she was at how he album Electra Heart was received in the US as she feels that the US public understand the humour of the album. However, Marina was not so pleased with her UK fans who she feels did not get that the album was tongue in cheek.
Marina explained to The Huffington Post, "It's been so instant in that I've come over [to the US] and sold out my tour and I've never really done that before. People are getting the humour. It's such a relief to be here for six weeks because it feels effortless. In the UK people take it so seriously.”
She added, “When I first changed [the direction of my music] people said, 'She's sold out' and they totally didn't get the humour. It's a tongue-in-cheek record but it also deals with the truth about love and commercialism and just being a young person, really."
Marina did admit that she gets nervous when performing her track Hollywood in America because she worries that the fans may take the track as a personal insult rather than the wry take on Hollywood fame culture that it is intended to be.
