Confessions are coming either tonight or tomorrow, diamonds! Sorry for the delay. <>
I sent the anon about Radioactive and it really was supposed to be just an ask, not a confession. Sorry I didn't actually include a question, I was mostly looking for your opinion.
It’s okay! I didn’t mean the post to be directed at you, it’s just that a lot of people have been submitting what I’m pretty sure are confessions and eventually it gets hard to tell who wants my opinion/who wants to provide commentary and who was trying to confess something. Don’t sweat it, and I’m sorry if my post came off as accusatory! <>
I actually don't care that Imagine Dragons has a song called Radioactive and that it got more popular than Marina's. I'm sure they didn't write it with the intention of out selling her. Also, I think it's pretty cool they made it on the radio because they're not very big either. Sort of like when Primadonna made it on the radio. And the crossover is the best thing I've heard since the preview of 'Electra Heart' at The Wonderball Room.
I agree! I enjoy Imagine Dragons (I’m not like a major fan, but I like them!) and I never really thought twice about them and Marina both having songs called “Radioactive.” I doubt they wrote it with any bad intentions, as well. It’s good to see other diamonds enjoying the mashup. c:
I actually like "Girls" and I take it like a critic to the way society makes girls behave and the expectations people have of women, not as an offense to girls, but that´s just my opinion.
I like a few parts of “Girls” but obviously, as has been discussed many times now, the song as a whole doesn’t sit right with me.
All confessions submitted through the ask box will either be deleted or responded to as a question (not made into a confession). I’ve gotten so many messages lately that I’m 90% sure are supposed to be confessions, but I can’t be sure because people also come into my askbox to comment on things. If you’ve tried to submit a confession over the last day or two, I highly suggest you do it again, because most of them have been asks and I’m probably just going to delete them.
Alright, even if you dislike the fact that Imagine Dragons has a song called “Radioactive,” this is pretty cool.
“Electra Heart is honestly my life in an album. it describes me so much. and Teen Idle is basically my teenage life right now.”
could you explain the difference between Electra Heart and Marina? and how did Electra Heart get started?
Many people don’t think there is a difference between Electra Heart and Marina, and that while Electra Heart is a character, she’s a character that reflects a certain side of Marina. It’s all about your interpretation of Electra, honestly. I think the Electra Heart era started with pictures Marina posted on her blog of her wearing a blonde wig. Some consider the official start of the Electra Heart era to be the release of the video for “Fear and Loathing.” It started very differently than it’s ended up now - EH began as a more serious concept, I think, rather than some of it being tongue-in-cheek, as it is now. Its Archetypes were also very different, and I’m pretty sure the heart on the cheek didn’t even show up till the release of the Electra Heart cover/the video for Primadonna!
I would just like to say that I appreciate all the hard work you do on this fabulous blog <3
Thank you so much! I appreciate your appreciation, ha ha. c:
“I really like how her diamonds, who’ve seen marina live, are like ‘I hope you get to see her someday.’ It’s sweet.”
