Marina from Marina and the Diamonds says her career failed in 2010.
In an interview with Undercover.fm, Marina opened up about how she wants to be the biggest star in the world and it didn’t happen. She said her American label Chop Shop did little to help her career and that she is pissed off that she isn’t bigger.
“It had been a big year but I feel more like a failure than a success,” she tells Undercover. “I haven’t done anything I wanted to. For someone who wants to be one of the best artists of her generation I’ve done fuck-all”.
Marina says America is a hard market to crack. “The Americans, I absolutely adore my fanbase there, but it has been built purely on me and my online presence,” she says. “The label haven’t really promoted me I’m afraid. It’s very difficult. It’s not really the labels fault. The pop landscape there is so difficult to penetrate and as you go into this danceworld now, dance music was quite underground for a long time in America but now because of Gaga and people like that it has been brought back. You need to be in that pumping beats area and I am certainly not”.
For Marina, 2010 was a bad year. “I feel pissed off I’m not bigger,” she said
