Marina Diamandis, aka Marina And The Diamonds, might just be our new favourite feminist pop star.
Diamandis features on the latest cover of Nylon magazine where she is heralded as: "The sound of feminism now."
The Welsh singer tweeted a picture of the cover, followed by a second tweet which appeared to quote her 'Can’t Pin Me Down' lyrics: "Do you really want me to write a feminist anthem? I’m happy cooking dinner in the kitchen for my husband."
(We say "appeared" because a large portion of the tweet was in emojis.)
Do you really want me to 📝 a 💁 anthem? I'm 😋 cooking 🍝 in the kitchen for my 👨— Marina Diamandis (@MarinasDiamonds) May 30, 2015
Previously speaking to The Guardian, Diamandis commented on the lyrics saying: "Am I feminist? Fuck, yes. But even with feminism it’s not about being independent the whole time. There’s nothing wrong with being a housewife."
Later on Twitter, she went on to suggest that it's ridiculous to even ask a woman if she is a feminist in 2015.
2015: "Are you a feminist?"
Me: "Is that a real fucking question?"— Marina Diamandis (@MarinasDiamonds) May 30, 2015
Before calling inequality "absolutely insane".
The fact that women still aren't paid the same as men & it's 2015 just blows. My fucking. Mind. It's absolutely insane.— Marina Diamandis (@MarinasDiamonds) May 30, 2015
She signed off by proving a feminist can believe in equal rights and still enjoy cooking dinner for her man every once in a while.
I'm happy cooking dinner just as I'm happy getting equal rights https://t.co/nL6hO3uCCN— Marina Diamandis (@MarinasDiamonds) May 30, 2015
