Marina & The Diamonds Primadonna Lyrics

Last updated: 05/03/2012 11:00:00 AM

Primadonna girl, yeah
All I ever wanted was the world
I can't help that I need it all
The primadonna life, the rise and fall
You say that I'm kinda difficult
But it's always someone else's fault
Got you wrapped around my finger, babe
You can count on me to misbehave

Primadonna girl
Would you do anything for me?
Buy a big diamond ring for me?
Would you get down on your knees for me?
Pop that pretty question right now baby

Beauty queen on a silver screen
Living life like I'm in a dream
I know I've got a big ego
I really don't know why it's such a big deal, though

And I'm sad to the core, core, core
Everyday is a chore, chore, chore
When you give I want more more
I wanna be adored, cus I'm a

Primadonna girl, yeah
All I ever wanted was the world
I can't help that I need it all
The primadonna life, the rise and fall
You say that I'm kinda difficult
But it's always someone else's fault
Got you wrapped around my finger, babe
You can count on me to misbehave

Primadonna girl

Fill the void up with celluloid
Take a picture, I'm with the boys
Get what I want cause I ask for it
Not because I'm really that deserving of it

Living life like I'm in a plane
In the limelight I want to stay
I know I've got a big ego
I really don't get why it's such a big deal, though

Going up, going down, down, down
Anything, for the crown, crown, crown
When the lights going down, down, down
I spin around

Cause I'm a primadonna girl, yeah
All I ever wanted was the world
I can't help that I need it all
The primadonna life, the rise and fall
You say that I'm kinda difficult
But it's always someone else's fault
Got you wrapped around my finger, babe
You can count on me to misbehave

Primadonna girl, yeah
All I ever wanted was the world
I can't help that I need it all
The primadonna life, the rise and fall
You say that I'm kinda difficult
But it's always someone else's fault
Got you wrapped around my finger, babe
You can count on me to misbehave

In August 2011, Diamandis uploaded a video to her YouTube page titled "Part 1: Fear and Loathing". In an interview with Popjustice, she explained the concept of the album, titled Electra Heart after a character of her creation; she said the guise "epitomises and embodies the lies, illusions and death of American ideologies involved in the corruption of self [...] Electra Heart is the antithesis of everything that I stand for. And the point of introducing her and building a whole concept around her is that she stands for the corrupt side of American ideology, and basically that’s the corruption of yourself. My worst fear—that’s anyone’s worst fear—is losing myself and becoming a vacuous person. And that happens a lot when you’re very ambitious."[38] The campaign's first single, "Radioactive" produced by Stargate, was released in October 2011, followed by a demo of the song "Starring Role" in November and a video titled ♡ PART 3: "THE ARCHETYPES" ♡ in December. The album Electra Heart will be released on 30 April 2012, preceded by the single "Primadonna" on 16 April. A track titled "Homewrecker" has been released as a free download to her mailing list subscribers.

The official video for Primadonna was published on the singer's YouTube channel on March 12
