worksheet summary
“Primadonna” is a song by Welsh recording artist Marina and the Diamonds, from her second studio album, Electra Heart (2012). It was released on 20 March 2012 as the album’s official lead single. It was an international success, reaching the top five in Austria, Ireland and New Zealand.

Marina has said this of the song:

“It’s about not needing anybody when it comes to love—your raison d'être is to live for adoration. Girls usually feel like this when they are not appreciated in a relationship. The inspiration for the song came from an ex-boyfriend. He thought it was funny that I was a mega drama queen always talking ‘global love’ this, ‘global love’ that! He called me a prima donna. I love it but I also kind of hate it. Like they say, ‘You only hate in others what you hate in yourself’, so I thought I’d channel this well-known but kind of undesirable character type into a pop song. As the saying goes (that I just made up): You’ve either been one or dated one at least once in your life.”
