It seems that almost every time a valuable natural resource is discovered in the world-whether it be diamonds, rubber, gold, oil, whatever-often what results is a tragedy for the country in which they are found. Making matters worse, the resulting riches from these resources rarely benefit the people of the country from which they come.
I keep getting compared to Marina and the Diamonds because she’s kind of in the same place as me at the moment. It’s quite annoying being compared, actually, because it almost downgrades your work and makes you feel like you’re just another female artist.
I don’t buy diamonds, I don’t buy cars, but I enjoy travelling. I’m not a very possessive person as far as things go.

Diamonds are forever, my youth is not.
But this is Miami, you can’t come to Miami and not show any skin. You gotta show something. If you’re all covered up in this heat, you’re gonna make me pass out out just to look at you. It’s sweaty in Miami-but the diamonds will keep me cool.
I never think in terms of gold, currency, diamonds. I’m not clever enough for that.

If you want a watch with diamonds on the bezel, you don’t need me.

No pressure, no diamonds.
If I collected all the diamonds in the world, I’d have no ‘income’ but I’d have a lot of ‘assets’. Would my company be worth nothing because I have no income? A lot of Net companies are collecting assets. They have to be measured with a new set of metrics.
