Marina Diamandis annoyed at Lady Gaga and Katy Perry comparisons

Marina and the Diamonds star Marina Diamandis has expressed her dislike at being compared to artists such as Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.

Speaking to The Sun, Diamandis said that she feels she could write a list of "30 artists" who she has been compared to over the years.

However, she said that she wants to be judged for her own music and be "classed as herself". Speaking about comparisons, Diamandis said:

"It really annoys me. I feel like it's more an extreme case for me than other artists. When you're unknown you get it as it helps people to understand what you sound like. I could draw up a list of about 30 artists who I apparently sound like. From Lady Gaga to Katy Perry to Lana Del Rey. I don't know if it's because I'm versatile or because production affects how people judge music."

She concluded: "I can't wait for a time I can just be classed as myself."

Diamandis meanwhile uploaded a photo onto Twitter last night (July 30) showing the singer sporting new brown hair with the caption: "Bye Bye, Blonde."
