Marina And The Diamonds criticises record label for refusing to release 'ugly' video
Marina Diamandis says she is ready to leak 'minger' version of the 'How To Be A Heartbreaker' vid
The 'Primadonna' singer, who released her second album 'Electra Heart' in April, took to Twitter to express her anger at her label for not putting out the 'How To Be A Heartbreaker' promo clip, writing:
So, someone at my record label wont let me release the video bc I look ugly in it apparently + we need more $ / time to paint out ugly parts— MARINA &THE DIAMONDS (@MarinasDiamonds) September 24, 2012
The video was supposed to be released today (September 24), but will now be released later in the week. Diamandis added: "The video will be out end of the week. If not, I am happy to leak the 'minger' version for my fans."
'How To Be A Heartbreaker' does not feature on the UK version of 'Electra Heart', as it was finished after the album sessions were completed. It does however appear on the US release of the follow-up to 2010's 'The Family Jewels'.
Marina And The Diamonds will play 11 shows in the UK this autumn. She kicks off the run at Leeds Metropolitan University on September 30 and tours until October 17 when she headlines Dublin's Olympia Theatre. The tour also includes gigs in Dundee, Preston, Liverpool, Manchester, Lincoln, Leicester, Wolverhampton, Oxford and London.
