Life as a music artist isn’t as glamorous as it seems. The hours spent traveling, performing, and promoting can become grueling. But touring comes with the territory, and luckily, Marina Diamandis of Marina and the Diamonds loves it.
Our June/July cover star is currently on the road touring her latest album FROOT (and it’s absolutely delicious, if you haven't heard!). While fans get to see her on stage performing among neon nature motifs and funky-colored fruit, we’ve were fortunate enough to go backstage with the artist. Ahead, Marina gives us a candid behind-the-scenes look at the international leg of her tour. How juicy!
First day back on tour. People think backstage is rock 'n' roll...but the reality is that it’s sometimes absolutely unglamorous and filthy.
In Hamburg. I've been given about seven pairs of these glasses and I'm not mad about it.
My manager, Jess, taking care of business.
In Brussels. I inhaled an entire box of truffles after this show in flavors ranging from pine tree to bergamot. Delicious.
This was a great night for vodka. And a great night for me.
