I’m pretty sure this is my favorite quote from this show ever
GET TO KNOW ME MEME: Five Artists [4/5]
↳ Marina Lambrini Diamandis (Marina and the Diamonds, D. I. Y. Musician, Miss Shellfish Beach)
Every one of us relates to love songs. To being hurt. But I wanted to chronicle it in a raw and truthful way, almost make a (visual) gimmick out of the thing I feared most. Everything else is just based around my love for photography, sharp humour, and a fascination with transient identities. If you are who you are, then why do you change around certain people? Why do we spend our entire lives trying to become ourselves, when we are born as no one else? I always want to try and cement who I am. But I never can. That’s why I write songs.
the more I think about it, the more I realize that 2009 me would be pretty scared/intimidated by 2014 me and that’s what counts
