Marina Diamandis has said that it really annoys her when she gets compared to other female musicians from the pop world.
The Marina & The Diamonds frontwoman, who scored her first No.1 album earlier this year, admitted to disliking the comparisons during a new interview with The Sun.
"I would be totally lying if I said it didn’t. It really annoys me," she told the paper.
Adding: "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."
Naming individual names, Marina continued: "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. I can’t wait for a time I can just be classed as myself."
Meanwhile, Marina recently announced a huge UK tour in support of her 'Electra Heart' album. Dates can be seen below.
