Marina And The Diamonds release new video following 'ugly' comments from label
'How To Be A Heartbreaker' comes from the US edition of 'Electra Heart'
The video was supposed to be released earlier this week, but Marina Diamandis told her fans that her record label Atlantic delayed the release because she looked 'ugly' in it. she wrote:
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 is now out and you can see it at the top of the page. Of the treatment for the video, Diamandis told The Sun: "I had 100 per cent creative control over this video. I was like OK, lets get six Calvin Klein models and put them in the shower and I'll [be] standing the middle in PVC."
'How To Be A Heartbreaker' does not feature on the UK version of Diamandis' second album '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'.

She kicks off the run at Leeds Metropolitan University on September 30 and tours until October 17 when she headlines Dublin's Olympia Theatre.
