We continue our tribute to Marina Diamandis with a consideration of a song she’s described as her favorite, Bubble Gum Bitch.
Of course, the song has plenty of socko femdom lyrics, e.g.
Got a figure like a pin-up, figure like a doll
Don’t care if you think I’m dumb… I don’t care at all
Candy-bear, sweetie-pie, wanna be adored…
I’m the girl you’d die for.
Like many of her songs, BGB has an internal sense of irony, and presents her as a kind of switch — the girlygirl popsinger who easily transitions to girlydom popinatrix…
Even within the song, she’s aware of female power’s transitional, double-edged qualities: a “pin up” and a “doll” (classic, passive, fem-submissive figures) in line one, but “don’t care if you think I’m dumb” (you probably do) and indeed “I don’t care at all” (you Schmoe) in line two…
Then to “Candy bear, sweetie pie, wanna be adored,” in line three, quickly shifting to the men-acing, “I’m the girl you’d die for…”
And it’s even more than that, as becomes evident if you watch M and the Ds in a live performance. There’s a clear energy and anarchic joy in the staging and her extemporaneous performances that tells you, this is Marina’s anthem.
(She’s referred to the song, and the album, Electra Heart, as her “manifesto.”)
And she has a wit — an appreciation of irony and paradox — that puts her in a camp with some of the greats, from Mae West to Mistress T, Lexi Sindel, and (more recently) Goddess Amadahy Fatale.
Already compared at times to Madonna and Lady Gaga, she writes (in the song Oh no!), hmm, perhaps, i.e., with rich exogenous entendre: “I’m becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy.”
Indeed. And she’ll make many of our male readers wish they were a piece of Bazooka when she continues:
I’ll chew you up and… I’ll spit you out…
‘Cause that’s what young love… is all about —
So pull me closer, and kiss me hard…
I’m gonna pop your bubble gum heart!
