Marina And The Diamonds - 'Primadonna'

A giant guff of saccharine nothing

Pre-Madonna, female artists were expected to mince demurely to music written by bloke-run hit factories. Post-Madonna, plonkers like Marina have got empowerment wrong, coming up with this: Europop fart beats and cloying vocals. Marina would do well to learn that ego needs something to back it up, which you won’t find in this giant guff of saccharine nothing.
