Marina Diamandis of UK act Marina And the Diamonds has gone to the cops over new songs being leaked online.
The feisty singer discovered that new tracks of her have leaked and reeled off a new blog about privacy, piracy and the fact that “The more leaks that happen, the slower I go.”
She stated that she won’t finish her new album this year, and blamed the leaks for waning creativity. She wrote: “The thought of people invading my privacy and listening to half-assed unfinished songs that I write at 3am on a tour bus does not make me feel too relaxed or creative.”
She called leakers “grim & unworthy characters” and claimed, “We are feeding their egos and all the while, they are laughing at both you and I, whilst their sites get attention and they claim "kudos" in hacker forums, as creativity grinds to an anxiety-ridden halt.”
She called on her fans to “protect” her and wrote, ''I have the police involved. So if you know information about the people who are doing this, you can message me. I have waxed lyrical to Warner about how incredible you are and I have faith in you on this."
Diamandis concluded that she need her privacy to work. She wrote, “My album is in the very early stages and will continue to be for a while.”
