#tbt: Hollywood by Marina and the Diamonds
Never one to shy away from snark and sarcasm, Marina gives us a lot to think about with “Hollywood,” which she usually performs live with a giant plush hamburger. In an interview, she stated “Hollywood infected my brain and I really valued the wrong things in life, but I changed dramatically… This obsession with celebrity culture is really unhealthy.” What she brings to the dancefloor is a party anthem with a cotton candy voice that hides a very sharp and poignant jab at celebrity culture. Marina constantly reminds us to check our values and what we’re investing our time in, making sure we don’t get too “obsessed with the mess of America.”
Her acoustic version is nothing short of amazing either.
