On Wednesday August 15th, the goddess known as Marina and the Diamonds played a special acoustic performance set and took part in an interview during a YouTube Presents live-stream event in NYC. I was lucky enough to nab myself a spot (after replying quite manically to the email I had received about it a few times just to make sure it had sent), and a few days later I slid into my seat at exactly the moment Marina took the intimate stage.
Wearing a slick, black high-waisted pencil skirt, crop top, and adorable Vivienne Westwood pom pom heels (these things must be noticed), Marina dazzled the small crowd of superfans with light renditions of some of her most popular tracks and singles, including "Primadonna" and "How To Be A Heartbreaker," allowing her vocals and effervescent charm to sparkle over the stripped down set.
Afterwards, Marina took a seat and joined the interviewer for a quick round of questions, some of which has been asked by fans online. Marina, candid as always, graced us with her openness and stories, and even shared the worst rumor she had ever heard about herself! (FYI, it wasn't very PG, but was incredibly entertaining.)
